Intersegmental Traction Massage

What is Intersegmental Traction Massage?

It is a way of inducing passive motion into the spine for the purpose of stretching spinal joints, increasing mobility.

How does Traction Massage work?

The patient lies face up on a bench which has roller-type cams beneath its surface.  These rollers can slowly travel the length of the spine, stretching spinal joints.

What does Traction Massage feel like?

Most patients find this form of treatment to be relaxing and very helpful.  The gentle rolling action is restful, exercising the spine without effort.

Why is Traction Massage used?

Since spinal discs have poor blood supply, they get nutrients from the circulation of fluids surrounding spinal joints.  Subluxations prevent this natural circulation and can cause disc thinning and degenration.  Massage traction with Chiropractic Adjustments help to increase and restore necessary elasticity and motion to the spine.

Patient Benefits:
