Roller Traction Table
This “feel good” machine is a favorite among many patients because of its massaging effect on the back. It has many important benefits, however, and should not be underestimated. Technically, the table provides “intersegmental traction” to the spinal joints and discs. Just as the adjustment restores movement to stuck joints, this therapy provides repetitive passive motion so nutrients can diffuse into the joint space or disc. Also, the body will be prompted to restore the elastic component to the joints, and the patient will notice that they can bend easier.
