Mechanical Traction is used to gently begin the process of moving the spine and getting it prepared for a Chiropractic Adjustment. It gently challenges the joints, muscles & tendons. It also brings blood to the surface of the spine. When more blood is present in and around the spine, there is more nutrients, minerals, oxygen and body awareness. Improves posterior joint and facet movement and function, improves ligament extensibility, promotes more normal motion and encourages better disc hydration & nutrition for long term benefits.
