When something interferes with your body’s natural healing processes, modern chiropractic care helps to restore balance. Chiropractic adjustments allow your nervous system, blood flow, and other natural functions to operate at peak efficiency. Sometimes, the right technology can make the process even more efficient and effective. One of the essential tools that we use at Main Street Chiropractic is our intersegmental traction table. If you are considering chiropractic care and live in Hilton Head Island, Bluffton, Pooler, Savannah, or the surrounding areas, contact our chiropractors at Main Street Chiropractic.
The Intersegmental Traction Table
At its most basic, the intersegmental traction table is a padded table with specialized rollers underneath. You lie on your back on the table and the rollers do all of the work. What makes this different than a typical massage is how they gently but repeatedly stretch your ligaments and muscles, increasing the blood flow and stimulating the healing process. The therapy begins to relax your tight muscles and eliminate uncomfortable spasms. Scar tissue is broken down and the swelling is reduced.
The discs in your spine are surrounded by their own special fluids. When they are not flowing, hard tissue can begin forming in their place, leading to further discomfort and complications. The intersegmental traction table stimulates flow in these fluids as well, preventing such problems. In short, the intersegmental traction table makes traditional chiropractic adjustments more effective. These 10 - 15 minute treatments have been shown to dramatically improve mobility, strengthen damaged and underutilized muscles, and help restore posture and balance.
The table is particularly effective with severe back injuries. One of the misconceptions in past generations about recovery was that the patient should remain as immobile as possible until fully healed. We now know that this is often counterproductive, and that appropriate movement and manipulation of the damaged areas can be essential for proper healing. The intersegmental traction table helps accomplish this without the risk of further injuries. Most patients report that they find the process quite relaxing as well.
Your Chiropractor. Your Choice.
Your chiropractor is still in complete control of the diagnosis and creating the treatment plan. Dr. Haven or Dr. Kalkreuth will talk you through the process, answer any questions that you may have, and customize each procedure for your specific needs. While we value the effectiveness of the right technology when appropriately applied, we never forget that chiropractic care is about people first. Every need is unique and every individual is important.
