Traction is a form of decompression therapy that we are happy to offer at our Dickinson, Killdeer, and Richardton, ND physical therapy practice. It relieves pressure on the spine and alleviates pain from joints, sprains, and spasms. It can also treat herniated discs, sciatica, degenerative disc disease, pinched nerves, and many other back conditions. Traction is performed by skilled physical therapists and/or the use of mechanical units.

Lower back pain (LBP) is the most commonly reported form of pain. It is a major cause of medical expenses, work absenteeism, and disability. With traction, you can find some much-needed relief and get back to comfortably living your daily life.
What are the types of traction?
The specialized treatment technique of mechanical traction uses devices that work by stretching the spinal vertebrae and muscles.
With manual traction, our physical therapists use their hands to stretch the spinal vertebrae and muscles.
With lumbar traction, a gentle force is used to gently gap the pelvis from the lower back.
This type of traction uses a gentle force to stretch or pull the head away from the neck.
