Spinal Traction Decompression or spinal Flexion Traction is achieved through the use of a mechanical traction table to manually control the force and angle of disc distraction, which reduces the body’s natural propensity to resist external force and/or generate muscle spasm. This enhanced control allows spinal decompression tables to apply a traction force to the discs of the spinal column reducing intradiscal pressure. The treatment has several varying versions, including articulating spinal decompression or range-of-motion (ROM) decompression, which enables the doctor to adjust the patient’s spinal posture during the decompression. Varying the spine’s posture enables the decompressive pulling forces to reach into spinal areas and tissues that basic linear decompression misses.
Manhattan Wellness Group has developed protocols that include Spinal Decompression which are very effective at treating spinal stenosis, bulging discs, herniated discs, pinched nerves, sciatica, radiating arm pain, degenerative disc disease, leg pain, radiculopathy, and facet syndromes.
