Intersegmental Traction

Intersegmental traction is chiropractic therapy that effectively produces passive motion into the spine to stretch spinal joints and increase patients' mobility. Intersegmental traction takes a gentle approach to help reestablish the normal range of motion to your spine. It simultaneously helps relax muscles, which has been shown to help noticeably reduce muscle spasms. Whether you're an avid runner or just someone who exercises regularly, the stress and trauma to your spine can get worse over time, especially the older you get.

Dr. Ennis setting up traction table

At Optimize Chiropractic in Cornelius, intersegmental traction uses a traction table. The table is designed for patients to lay down for treatment. There are typically rollers just below the table's surface, adjusted depending on your chiropractic condition and weight. This specifically elongates and stretches your spinal joints and muscles and can help diminish muscle spasms and enhance your spinal joints' range of motion.

When your muscles are more relaxed, and vertebrae usually move, your vertebral discs can move naturally and return to their normal position and function. Not only does this help prevent abnormal wear and tear on the vertebral discs, but it also helps prevent further injury and reduces arthritis progression.

Intersegmental traction is a non-invasive and effortless treatment. Many Cornelius chiropractic patients find this type of chiropractic care to be relaxing and less stress-inducing. The gentle rolling action is a gentle way to exercise the spine without exerting the body.

Advantages of intersegmental traction chiropractic therapy include:

  • Mobility increase
  • Ligaments and muscles are stretched
  • Muscle spasms and spinal subluxations are reduced
  • Blood flow and oxygen to discs, ligaments, and muscles is increased
  • Overall balance and strength improvements
