Traction therapy is a style of spinal decompression treatment that aims to relieve pressure from joints and spinal nerves.

The joints in the lower back support a significant portion of the body’s weight, and its structures can become strained with continual loading. Traction therapy separates these joint surfaces enough to allow for relief of compressed joints and stretching of surrounding muscles and soft tissues. These properties make traction therapy a great option to help with conditions including arthritis, low back pain, compressed spinal nerves, and muscle spasms.
