Intersegmental Traction Therapy


Intersegmental Traction Therapy in Kansas City

During the impact of an auto accident, it is common for your spine to sustain damage. You may not experience the symptoms of a spine injury right away due to the shock of the accident. However, you can begin to feel neck or back pain over a few weeks or even months.

Intersegmental Traction Therapy can provide a gentle treatment option for auto accident victims who are suffering from back or neck pain. This non-invasive therapy helps mobilize spine segments and reduce pressure on spinal discs and nerves.

How You May Benefit from Intersegmental Traction Therapy:

  • Gentle Spinal Adjustments
  • Pain Relief and Inflammation Reduction
  • Reduce Muscle Tension and Spasms
  • Improve Spinal Mobility and Posture
  • Enhance Circulation
  • Avoid Surgery and Medications

How Intersegmental Traction Therapy Works

Traction therapy uses a specialized table known as a traction table to lightly stretch the back to release the pressure created by compressed spinal discs. As the spine is softly stretched, the spinal discs create a suction pattern that allows fluids and minerals to reenter the disc areas. This allows the body to improve its ability to heal itself. Patients with spinal injuries experience significant benefits from traction therapy since traction is focused on releasing the pressure that causes pain in the back.
