What Is Mechanical Traction Therapy

Mechanical Traction - Patient on table

Mechanical Traction is a treatment that uses an electromechanical table or similar motorized device. It's a non-surgical procedure to help relieve back and leg pain.

This Therapy help to release pressure off the spine or any targeted area. The process helps alleviate pain from joints sprains and muscle spasms. It can also be used to help treat sciatica, herniated discs, pinched nerves, degenerative disc disease, and many other back diseases.

The most-reported form of back pain is the Lower Back Pain (LBP). It is a major cause of being unable to work, disabilities, and costly medical expenses. With the help of this therapy, you'll be able to find relief and comfortably get back to your daily life.

Mechanical traction is not for everyone. You have to speak with your doctor before undergoing the procedure. Your doctor will decide if this medical procedure is right for you based on your medical history.

At The Right Spinal Clinic, we have two specialized tables for Mechanical Traction Therapy. The first one is an intersegmental roller table. You will be asked to lie down on the table as three massage rollers move vertically along your spine. The intensity will vary on your condition and it will help relieve pressure off the muscles and spine.

The second one is an inversion table which is specifically designed for relieving back and leg pain. Your therapist will make adjustments on the device based on your height and width. This is to make sure that the device will be able to support you and delivers its purpose effectively.

The device will slowly incline at an angle, with your legs higher than your head. This will give you traction which reverses the force of gravity on your spine. If done right, this will significantly improve the way you move. By combining mechanical spinal traction with other treatments, your body will be more capable of healing itself.
