Traction

 

Traction is the use of a mechanical device, gravity or position to relieve pressure on a vertebral structure or nerve root. Traction can be as simple as laying in a certain position at home or as complicated as having to go into a clinic and be hooked up to a traction machine. Any device that states it is unloading, decompressing, or performing traction is a traction type device.

Traction is used by a physical therapist in conjunction with a complete treatment program. The physical therapist will position a patient in an appropriate position and perform the treatment to the affected area for an appropriate amount of time and at an appropriate intensity or pull.

The settings will be based on what the therapist is trying to achieve with the treatment and the area being treated. A specialized belt, strap or harness may be used to assist in the providing the appropriate intensity at the desired level. A normal treatment time will be between 8 and 20 minutes depending on the area being treated and desired effect of the treatment.

Traction is effective for:

  • Bulging, prolapsed, or herniated discs
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Sciatica
  • Facet syndrome
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Neck pain
  • Pain radiating down the arm
  • Pinched nerves
  • Spondylitis
