Intersegmental Traction

IST


This is a treatment that gently induces a passive motion into your spine for the purpose of stretching spinal joints and increasing mobility. Most patients find this treatment to be very relaxing and helpful.

Disks in the spine have a very poor blood supply, they get nutrients from the mechanical pumping of surrounding spinal joints when they move. Intersegmental traction helps to increase and restore necessary motion and elasticity to the spine.
