Intersegmental traction, also known as a roller table, is a type of therapy that is commonly used by chiropractors to help relieve back pain and promote spinal health. During an intersegmental traction session, the patient lies on a table that has rollers that move up and down the spine. These rollers gently stretch and mobilize the spine, helping to increase circulation, reduce muscle tension, and promote healing.
Intersegmental traction is a safe and effective treatment option that is suitable for patients of all ages and fitness levels. It can be particularly beneficial for those who have suffered a back injury, have chronic back pain, or who are looking to maintain their spinal health. It can also be used in conjunction with other chiropractic treatments, such as spinal adjustments or massage therapy, to provide a more comprehensive approach to pain relief and healing.
Intersegmental traction provides a gentle and relaxing way to improve spinal health and alleviate back pain - it's a therapy that patients of all ages and fitness levels can benefit from.
During an intersegmental traction session, the chiropractor will adjust the intensity and speed of the rollers based on the patient's individual needs and preferences. The session is typically relaxing and comfortable, with many patients reporting a sense of relief and improved mobility after just one session.
