Mechanical Traction

devices are typically used to help reduce compressive forces in the joints, particularly the articular structures in the spinal column. Traction devices may employ cylinder pumps, weights, gravity and general principles of leverage to help decompress the targeted region. During treatment, a person may feel a stretching sensation or slight discomfort. Mechanical traction is commonly used to treat osteoarthritis, headaches, disc herniations, muscular tightness, joint stiffness and cervical nerve root compression.
