DESCRIPTION OF THE PROCEDURE
Traction therapy (spinal traction) is a therapeutic intervention on the body tissues involving dosed traction. It is one of the main treatment components for the most of spine diseases, including osteochondrosis, scoliosis, and intervertebral hernia.
HOW THE PROCEDURE IS PERFORMED?
Spinal traction is carried out with special equipment, belts, rings and units, gradually stretching one or another part of the spinal column. The procedure takes 30-40 minutes.
- back pain as a result of swelling or herniated disc;
- pain associated with vertebral discs;
- joint pain;
- damaged joint surfaces;
- nerve entrapment;
- reduced mobility;
- compression fractures;
- muscle spasms;
- cervical radiculopathy.
- patients under 16 and over 60;
- inflammatory processes in the spine and nerves;
- recent spinal injuries;
- obvious spondylosis;
- complications after spine surgery;
- metabolic diseases;
- tumors of the spinal cord and spine;
- gallstone disease and kidney stone disease;
- acute stomach and duodenal ulcer.
RESULTS OF THE PROCEDURE
Traction causes the unloading of the spinal motion segments, decrease in the intra-disc pressure and unblocking of the intervertebral joints. As a result, pain is reduced, muscle tension is relieved, mobility limits are increased, flexibility is developed, swelling is reduced, spinal hernia is treated, and nerve pinching is eliminated.
