Manual Traction

Manual Traction: a technique where the therapist uses their hands to perform spinal decompression.

Spinal decompression is a term that describes the relief of pressure on the vertebal segments of the spinal column. At OSPT we can perform spinal decompression both mechanically and manually. It is used to treat conditions that result in chronic neck pain caused by disc bulge, disc herniation, sciatica, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease and degenerative joint disease.
