Traction is effective with disc herniations, disc bulging, disc degeneration, facet joint restriction and sciatica. It decompresses discs and nerves and allows for a “vacuum effect” within the disc that brings the necessary nutrients and oxygen to enter the disc, to decrease pain and swelling and allow the disc to heal. At OSPT, we utilize several types of spinal traction depending on the spinal level, type of condition and positional preference specific to each patient we treat.
And…our newest, most requested form of traction…
