Chiropractic Care and Spinal Traction
When joints get compressed, the body illicits a pain response. This North Wales / Lansdale Chiropractor will put together a treatment plan that may include mechanical traction. Mechanical spinal traction is an relaxing effective way of tractioning out the spine and its surrounding musculature and relieving spinal compression.The patient lays comfortably on their back while the table tractions up and down the back while massaging the associated muscles. It is commonly used for many back and hip problems, as well as disc injuries.
Dry hydrotherapy is an effective method of treating many aches and pains in a very relaxing way. Our chiropractic office has dry hydrotherapy beds that allow the patient to lay atop heated circulating waterjets while remaining totally dry and fully clothed. These hydrotherapy beds are great way to decrease muscle spasms and increase circulation to the back, neck and shoulders, which are an excelent addition to our chiropractic careplan.
