Spinal Traction and Spinal Decompression for Back Pain.

May 08, 2018 in Back Pain

What is Spinal Traction?

Spinal traction is a form of decompression therapy that helps treat back pain by relieving pressure from the spine. It can be performed manually or mechanically. Herniated discs, sciatica, degenerative disc disease, pinched nerves, and many other back conditions can be treated with spinal traction.

What Does the Spine Do?

A spinal column is essentially an extension of the human brain. It's a cord of nerve signals that is part of the central nervous system and runs down the centre of the back. The spine is protected by 33 individual bones stacked one on top of the other that protects the spinal column from injury.

A spine is made from strong muscles, bones, and flexible tendons and ligaments that help:

  • Maintain balance
  • Absorb shock
  • Allow range of motion
  • Protect the spinal column

What is a Herniated Disc and Compressed Disc?

Lumbar discs are filled with a soft centre that can break through the thicker outer layer, which causes irritation to nearby nerves. Herniating means "to protrude though an abnormal body opening". This disc herniation causes inflammation, nerve pain in the disc wall itself, and nerve root pain.

A herniated disc is often a result of:

  • Adding stress to the back by lifting a heavy object
  • Twisting the lower back in a stressful manner

What Happens to the Back During Spinal Traction?

Spinal traction stretches the spine to take pressure off compressed discs. This consequently straightens the spine and therefore, improves the body's ability to heal itself. Using a device that can stretch the spine, can allow for space between the spinal discs and as a result, can allow inflammation to go down.

Can You Use Spinal Traction at Home?

Yes, it's possible to use a device at home to create spinal traction rather than turning to surgery. Traction devices stretch the spine so that more space is created between the discs and as a result, pain is reduced.
