Cervical Traction is intended to relieve muscle spasms and nerve root compression and offers short-term treatment for neck pain. A constant or intermittent force is applied to the neck to stretch the muscles and soft tissue and open up the spaces between the upper vertebrae. This is done through either manual (hands-on) or mechanical methods.
Likewise, Lumbar Traction is the steady or intermittent application of force to the spine, also either through manual or mechanical methods. It is designed to decrease the pain associated with nerve root impingement and muscle spasms.
