Neck (cervical) and lower back (lumbar) traction (also known as decompression therapy) is a non-surgical, non-invasive and effective treatment for sufferers of chronic and acute neck and low-back pain. It helps to relax the muscles, which can significantly relieve pain and stiffness while increasing mobility.
Traction may be helpful for individuals with symptoms that are in the upper or lower extremities that your therapist feels is originating from the spine. Some common diagnoses that may benefit from traction are as follows:
- Disc Herniation and Bulges
- Degenerative Discs
- Failed Low Back Surgery
- Spinal Stenosis/Arthritis
- Cervical Disc Disease
- Spinal Degenerative Disc Disease
We know that these diagnostic terms/labels can be scary. Come see us at King Physical Therapy & Fitness and allow us to ease your mind and provide you with an opportunity to return to your best self.
