The spine is supposed to move. The intersegmental traction table gently helps to reestablish normal spinal range of motion. Intersegmental traction tables also help with muscle relaxation and reduction of muscle spasms. Use of an intersegmental traction table greatly accelerates recovery progress from a back injury.
The table has a dual roller moving up and down the muscles on either side of the spine. The rollers help move the spine to increase blood flow and oxygen to the discs Intersegmental traction tables are very relaxing and help assist the healing process.
The intersegmental traction table mobilizes the spinal column while simultaneously stretching the ligaments and muscles. This helps to increase blood flow and oxygen to discs, ligaments and muscles, which then improves balance, strength and mobility.
