Intersegmental Traction Therapy
Another helpful chiropractic treatment method we use is known as intersegmental traction in Jacksonville and Orange Park. This therapy type uses a traction table with a roller that helps to restore normal ranges of the body’s spine. It relaxes the muscles and reduces incidences of muscle spasms in our patients. Studies have shown that the use of this therapy option accelerates the recovery process in those with back injuries.
How Intersegmental Traction Works
You will first lie on a table. This traction table operates with a dual roller that moves up and down the muscles on each side of the spine. The rolling contact is electronic and constant. This is a great healing tool and patients mention the experience is very relaxing for them.
Benefits of Intersegmental Traction Therapy
- This type of therapy method we offer at Meridian Integrative Wellness is great with:
- Stretching the muscles and ligaments
- Increasing blood flow and oxygen to the discs
- Reducing incidences of muscle spasms that are caused by weak muscles or spinal injuries
- Reestablishing the range of motion
- And in turn, improving strength, mobility, and balance
Who Does Intersegmental Therapy Help The Most?
While this treatment option can be helpful with any injury, it is especially great for those with disc injuries. This type of injury causes poor blood supply leading to disc thinning and degeneration. This traction helps to increase and to restore elasticity and motion to the patient’s spine directly, and without surgery. Intersegmental therapy is also great for herniated/bulging discs, accident injuries, individuals with poor posture, muscle spasms, sports injuries, and much more.
