Intersegmental Traction is a form of therapy utilized to reinstall the normal motion of the joints of the spine. The spine is a series of bones interconnected by joints, ligaments, and muscles. If any of these structures lack mobility they become swollen and painful. This table is one aspect of the treatment plan that restores the natural motion of the spinal structures and in turn will reduce the inflammation and pain. Intersegmental traction should never be painful and often times patients joke they would love to have one in their own home!
