Spinal Traction: Reducing Pain Through Movement
Century Center Chiropractic in Brookhaven is dedicated to helping our patients enjoy a pain-free life after experiencing spinal problems. Spinal traction is one way that we can help you recover from acute or chronic issues of the spine.
What is Spinal Traction?
This type of chiropractic treatment falls under the decompression therapy category. The chiropractor can do this manually or they may use a tool to help them, depending on the severity of the problem and the best method for your needs. Typically, spinal traction is used for many types of back pain, including those caused by pinched nerves, slipped disks, or chronic disease of the discs. Other conditions that may benefit from this technique include bone spurs, sciatica, and stenosis. The stretching of the spine causes a reduction in pressure which will often provide pain relief.
Types of Spinal Traction
The two types of spinal traction are manual and mechanical. In the former, the chiropractor decompresses the spine with the force of their hands alone. In the latter, you'll lay down on a table that is designed for spinal traction. The table has a variety of tools to straighten and decompress the spine, and it may be necessary if your spine needs more decompression than the chiropractor alone can provide.
Benefits of Spinal Traction
The biggest benefit of a spinal traction treatment is that you can relieve your pain without using drugs or surgery. Back and spinal issues can be debilitating, so being able to get this procedure done for immediate relief and the long-term promotion of healing can be life-changing.
