Traction:

Traction is used on patients presenting some specific criteria. Traction in the low back can be divided in axial traction and flexion distraction. 

On the following animation you can observe a flexion –distraction table which is highly effective in specific types of disc herniation. As the table moves down the inferior portion of the patient’s body, it is pulled away from the trunk creating a slight separation of the lumbar vertebras and forces the herniated disc off the nerve root. Conditions such as a specific type of sciatica, stenosis, arthrosis are treated using this table.

The office has over six different tables on site each serving different needs; this wide choice allows the doctor to provide his patients with a more adapted tool to a specific condition.
