Spinal decompression (traction) treatments are painless. In fact some individuals get immediate relief from their pain once decompression takes place. In addition to traction it is important that you comply with the specific home exercises prescribed by your physiotherapist to minimize the stresses on the disc, and partake in an appropriate strengthening and stabilization program when appropriate.
Traction is effective for:
•Bulging, prolapsed, or herniated discs
•Degenerative disc disease
•Pain radiating down the arm
