Spinal Traction and Decompression Therapy & Physiotherapy.
Manual or mechanical traction is applied to the spine (neck or lower back) to ease symptoms in the neck (arms, elbows, hands) or the lower back (buttock, leg, calf, foot). The pull of the traction should cause the symptoms to centralise (come out of the arm or leg). Usually the symptoms are caused by pressure on a nerve from a disc degenerative, herniated, sciatica or spinal stenosis. Traction reduces (decompresses) the pressure and the symptoms should change. Experienced Physiotherapist for Spinal Therapy are available at Pro Physiotherapy.
After an injury or surgery, an exercise conditioning program will help you return to daily activities and enjoy a more active, healthy lifestyle. Following a well-structured conditioning program will also help you return to sports and other recreational activities.
This is a general conditioning program that provides a wide range of exercises. To ensure that the program is safe and effective for you, it should be performed under your doctor’s supervision. Talk to your doctor or physical therapist about which exercises will best help you meet your rehabilitation goals.
Spinal manipulation for low back complaints is an intervention supported by randomized clinical trials and its use recommended by clinical practice guidelines. Physical therapists have used thrust spinal manipulation at much lower-than-expected rates, despite evidence supporting its efficacy for the treatment of acute low back pain (LBP). The purpose of this clinical commentary is to describe a physical therapist professional degree curriculum in thrust spinal manipulation and outline a method of monitoring ongoing student performance during the clinical education experience.Pro Physiotherapy has the Best Experienced Physiotherapist.
Therapists can do this manually or mechanically (with a machine). Treatment is a continuous or off/on pull for 30 minutes. Symptoms should reduce but not resolve with the traction on. This is part of a treatment and should be combined with education, resting positions and exercises. Traction is not a substitute for exercises.
