Gentle Traction at Back Care Plus

A Natural Path to Relief

At Back Care Plus, we offer a simple, time-tested solution for radiating back and neck pain – traction therapy. This non-invasive, therapeutic approach could be your key to finally finding lasting relief from persistent symptoms.

The Principles of Spinal Decompression

Traction works by applying a precise, gentle distraction force along the spine. By carefully separating the bony vertebrae, we create negative pressure within the discs. This decompression allows bulging or herniated discs to retract, taking pressure off pinched nerves. Increased circulation then flows into the area, promoting healing and reducing inflammation.

How Can Traction Help?

For many patients struggling with radiating arm or leg pain, numbness, tingling or weakness, traction therapy can be a game-changer. It’s particularly beneficial for common conditions like sciatica, cervical brachial neuritis, sprains and strains caused by bulging discs compressing nerve roots. As the relentless compression is relieved, radiating symptoms often improve dramatically.

A Tailored Treatment Journey

The first step is completing a comprehensive examination, including x-rays or other imaging studies. This allows us to carefully evaluate your condition and ensure you are an ideal candidate for traction, ruling out any contraindications. If traction is recommended, we’ll develop a personalized treatment plan just for you.

During your traction sessions, you’ll be carefully positioned and monitored as we apply the gentle distraction force. Through open communication and your feedback on any changing symptoms, we can make adjustments to optimize your traction program. With time and care, many patients experience significant relief.
