Traction / Decompression

Spinal decompression or traction is utilized to treat a variety of mostly chronic lower back and neck disorders. The decompression/traction unit is designed to create a traction force along the long axis of the spine resulting in decompression of certain pre-determined levels of the spine.

Decompression/traction may be used to treat the following:

  • Low back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Sciatica or other nerve entrapments
  • Disc herniation
  • Disc protrusion
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Osteoarthritis of the spine
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Decreased range of motion in the neck or low back
  • Pain, numbness, tingling, pins and needles in the arms or legs

On your initial visit your physiotherapist will thoroughly assess you and determine whether spinal decompression/traction is suitable for you. Along with a specific spinal assessment your physiotherapist will also assess your core and other areas that may be relevant to your symptoms. If spinal decompression / traction is deemed appropriate, your treatment will also include education, core and postural exercises, as well as home exercises.
