Roller Table Therapy

Intersegmental Traction – “Roller Table”

  • Used for reduction and prevention of muscle spasm and begins to re-establish normal range of motion for your spinal joints (each vertebrae)
  • Helps prevent abnormal wear and tear on the vertebral discs and vertebrae
  • Helps reduce further injury
  • Reduce the arthritis process

Intersegmental traction is delivered through the use of a traction table. It is a table that you lay down on (on your back) and there are rollers just underneath the surface of the table. These rollers are adjusted for your condition and weight to gently and specifically elongate and stretch your spinal joints and muscles. When your muscles become more relaxed and vertebrae begin to move normally your vertebral discs now have their normal space and can return to their normal position and functioning.
