Spinal traction in Jackson MI

Cervical Traction

Cervical traction in Jackson MI is a therapeutic technique that is primarily used to alleviate neck pain and improve spinal alignment. It involves the application of a gentle traction force to the cervical spine, which helps to relieve pressure on the vertebrae, discs, and surrounding tissues.

During a cervical traction session, the patient stands comfortably with their head securely supported, and as they squat down an upward traction force is applied to the neck region . The traction force employed gently stretches the neck, creating a separation between the vertebrae. This separation helps to decompress the spinal discs, reducing pressure on nerves and promoting proper alignment of the cervical spine. By doing so, it can alleviate symptoms associated with conditions like herniated discs, cervical radiculopathy, degenerative disc disease, and cervical spondylosis.

Lumbar Traction in Jackson MI

Lumbar facet release spinal traction is a therapeutic technique aimed at relieving lower back pain and improving the function of the lumbar spine. This technique specifically targets the facet joints, which are small joints located between adjacent vertebrae in the lower back. The facet joints are involved in the movement and stability of the spine, and when they become restricted or inflamed, it can lead to pain and reduced mobility.

During a lumbar facet release traction session, the patient lies comfortably face down on a traction table. The lower back is properly positioned, and a controlled traction force is delivered through mechanical means by raising up and creating a slight angle between the lumbar spine and the pelvis.

The purpose of lumbar facet release traction is to create space between the vertebrae and temporarily separate the facet joints. This separation helps to alleviate pressure and compression on the joints, reducing inflammation and promoting improved joint mobility. By doing so, it can provide relief from conditions such as facet joint syndrome, lumbar osteoarthritis, and degenerative disc disease that are often associated with lower back pain
