What is Intersegmental Traction Therapy?

International Chiropractic Center is Orlando’s premiere practice for Intersegmental Traction Therapy. By stretching spinal joints through passive motion, patients see increased mobility and increased circulation of spinal fluids in a process that is both comfortable and relaxing.

How Does it Work?
The procedure is fairly simple. While the patient lays face up on a bench table, roller-type cams beneath its surface slowly travel the length of the spine, stretching spinal joints along the way.This incredible healing tool works comfortably and safely, making constant contact with the muscles along the spine. While it may feel like a massage, more is happening behind the scenes than simple muscle relief. The therapy improves blood circulation to the spine and bolsters its notoriously low supply of the necessary fluid. At times, fixations can prevent circulation and lead to disc thinning and degeneration. This can cause discomfort and lack of mobility. However, through Intersegmental Traction Therapy, the necessary elasticity and motion to the spine can be improved and restored in a pain-free manner that is both tranquil and enjoyable to patients of all ages. Patients will leave their therapy sessions feeling relaxed and full of renewed vigor. The extra blood flow to the spine has also been known to increase strength and improve balance of Intersegmental Traction Therapy patients in Orlando and around the world.

Why Intersegmental Traction Therapy?
Intersegmental Traction Therapy has been known to help alleviate muscle spasms and improve the spine’s range of motion. Whether caused by accident, injury, or just plain fatigue, spasming muscles are painful and can be debilitating. After therapy, the muscles are able to relax and return to their natural positions and begin functioning normally. A properly aligned and healthy spine decreases the strain abdominal muscles put on spinal discs and can even slow down some of the arthritic process. As a non-invasive and completely painless process, the relaxing motion of the rollers exercises the muscles in the back in an effortless and therapeutic manner. The process has also been known to greatly accelerate recovery time from back injuries. With adjustable pressure capabilities, the intensity of the traction can be lessened or strengthened based on each patient’s needs. The table is also capable of adapting to people of all shapes and sizes in an equally effective manner and can also be used to correct spinal curves.
