Intersegmental traction is a therapeutic technique used to treat various musculoskeletal conditions. It involves the use of a specially designed table that has rolling rollers or vibrating mechanisms. The patient lies on the table, and the rollers or vibrations move along the spine, gently stretching and mobilizing the spinal joints.

Intersegmental traction works by promoting spinal joint mobility, improving blood flow to the spinal tissues, and reducing muscle tension. The rolling rollers or vibrations create a gentle stretching and mobilizing effect on the spine, which helps to relieve pressure on the nerves and reduce pain.

The benefits of utilizing intersegmental traction for medical treatment options are numerous. Firstly, it can help to alleviate back and neck pain by reducing pressure on the nerves and promoting spinal joint mobility. It can also improve spinal alignment and posture, which can have a positive impact on overall musculoskeletal health.

Additionally, intersegmental traction can enhance the effectiveness of other treatment modalities, such as chiropractic adjustments or physical therapy exercises. It can help to prepare the spine for these treatments by loosening up the muscles and joints, making them more receptive to manipulation or exercise.

Overall, intersegmental traction is a safe and effective treatment option for various musculoskeletal conditions. It provides a non-invasive and drug-free approach to pain relief and improved spinal health.
