Intersegmental Traction

Q: What is Intersegmental Traction?

A: It is a way of inducing passive motion into the spine for the purpose of stretching spinal joints and increasing mobility.

Q: How does Intersegmental Traction work?

A: The patient lies face up on a bench table which has roller-type cams beneath its surface. These rollers can slowly travel the length of the spine, stretching the spinal joints.

Q: What does Intersegmental Traction feel like?

A: Most patients find this form of treatment to be relaxing and very helpful. The gentle rolling action is restful; exercising the spine without effort.

Q: Why is Intersegmental Traction used?

A: Since discs have a poor blood supply, they get nutrients from the circulation of fluids surrounding spinal joints. Fixations prevent this natural circulation and can cause disc thinning and degeneration. Intersegmental traction helps increase and restore necessary elasticity and motion to the spine.

  • "Katie does wonders! Aching and in pain yesterday and after the adjustment I'm 99.9% better, just a little tender which is to be expected. Both Katie and Megan do wonders."
