At Price Chiropractic Center, one service we may provide in your rehabilitation is the use of traction or decompression. Both of these can be effective at helping to decrease nerve pressure or irritation that can be part of the problem causing your pain.
Many times, degenerative discs, herniated discs or arthritic joints in the spine can be aided with traction or decompression. Often, they can help us help you avoid surgery.
If it would benefit your recovery, we will also prescribe a traction device for use at home so that you can increase the frequency of your traction and also be provided with a way to help yourself outside of the office. Both traction or decompression should not be painful and, in fact, should be very pain relieving.
