What Is An Intersegmental Traction Table?
An intersegmental traction table is often used by a chiropractor to help the spine return to its proper range of motion. It gently manipulates the spine and mobilizes it while stretching all the muscles and ligaments. This table has dual rollers that are constantly moving which can help encourage muscle relaxation and minimize spasms. The rollers move up and down either side of the spine to help it heal faster. If you need chiropractic care in or around the Omaha area, contact Millard Family Chiropractic and Wellness.
Why Is the Table Used?
The intersegmental traction table is often used to relieve pressure from the spine because the table helps to increase the spacing between the vertebrae in the spine. This increased spacing takes the pressure off the nerves. This type of treatment is ideal for conditions such as pinched nerves, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, pinched nerves, and herniated discs. These tables can speed up the recovery time after a back injury. These tables are also used for neck pain and any area where the muscles and ligaments are tight. The table can help loosen them which increases circulation to help speed up the healing process.
An intersegmental traction table may not be ideal for everyone. If you have had a severe injury, this may not be the proper tool for you. An in-depth conversation with Dr. Millard, Dr. Komp, Dr. Thompson or Dr. Ordal will help us determine if you are an ideal candidate for this type of therapy.
