Intermittent Neck Traction

Neck pain often results from degenerative changes or joint stiffness. When a nerve root is impinged, it can cause pain and abnormal sensations along the upper limb, neck, and scapular region. Intermittent neck traction mechanically separates the vertebrae, reducing pressure on the nerve root impinged by a prolapsed intervertebral disc, osteophytes, or inflamed soft tissues. This method also helps mobilise facet joints, promote muscle relaxation, and relieve pain. Our physiotherapists tailor the angle, poundage, and duration of neck traction to each patient's specific condition.

Intermittent Pelvic Traction

Mechanical pelvic traction alleviates pressure on nerve roots impinged by a prolapsed intervertebral disc and degenerative changes in the lumbar spine. This can cause back pain, lower limb radiated pain, numbness, and weakness. Pelvic traction also relieves muscle tightness and joint stiffness. Combining mechanical pelvic traction with manual therapy and exercise therapy enhances treatment effectiveness and helps prevent recurrence of back pain. Proper back care is essential for maintaining long-term relief and preventing further issues.
