Mechanical traction is a highly successful alternative to surgery. Techniques applied in mechanical traction are dependent on the patient's condition, disorder, tolerance level, and the spinal level to be treated. Traction may be applied intermittently or as a continuous force. The gentle traction force or weight helps in pulling away the vertebrae, thereby relieving pain, widening intervertebral foramen to relieve nerve root impingement, and increasing circulation and fluid movement within spinal discs. This treatment is very effective for patients suffering from DJD, herniated disc, general neck, arm, leg and back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, etc.
