Protect Yourself from Disc Degeneration with Intersegmental Traction

Written By Chapman Health Group on April 15, 2021

Traction DecompressionYour spinal discs can always benefit from a little help in improving circulation. Discs have poor blood supply, which makes it easy to develop disc thinning and degeneration. Intersegmental traction at Chapman Health Group in Leesburg is a great way to protect yourself from disc degeneration and more.

The Health Benefits of Intersegmental Traction

Intersegmental Traction is a way of inducing passive motion into the spine for the purpose of stretching spinal joints and increasing mobility. The patient lies face up on a bench table, which has roller-type cams on the underside. These rollers slowly travel the length of the spine and stretch it out.

Most of our patients find intersegmental traction relaxing and very helpful. The gentle rolling action is restful, exercising the spine without effort.

This treatment method not only feels good but also is good for your health. Research shows it increased the range of motion in your spine and blood flow to discs. Pairing intersegmental traction with chiropractic adjustments is shown to be the most effective treatment of disc-related injuries and spinal pain.
