Do you suffer from spine-related problems or have you injured your back? If so, the Intersegmental Traction Table also referred to as Roller Table, can help. This is a special kind of table that gives you an experience similar to a deep massage that both relieves and relaxes the body. However, it is mostly renowned for the health benefits it has on the spine. The Intersegmental traction is seen as a better and more effective alternative to the manual way of adjusting and flexing the joints of the spine, thus improving mobility. This technique also minimizes the adhesions on the articular as well as periarticular tissues. Furthermore, the contraction and expansion of the disc tissues in your spine improves circulation, healing, and nutrition in the discs .
Loss of Flexibility
Research shows that most mechanical issues or spinal injuries you may experience are a result of the joints in the spine or articulations losing their flexibility and mobility. Instead of maintaining good flexibility, the damaged tissues get stiff and rigid, thus impairing movement and becoming weaker over time. Traction stretches out the spinal joints thus allowing good circulation, opens up articulation of facet joints, and also eases pressure on the spinal tissues and nerves. As your spine recuperates over time following the Intersegmental traction, it becomes more flexible and stronger making certain the spine recovers fully .
Dr. Overton Can Help
Chiropractors and other therapists use the roller or Intersegmental traction table to re-establish the spine’s normal range of motion. Normally, your spine will become less flexible and will lose its range over time due poor posture, an accident, and other factors. The table gently restores these ranges by relaxing and rejuvenating the muscles and also reducing spasms in the muscles. This is most important, especially if you have been involved in an accident where the tissues and muscles are usually weakened and/or if muscle spasms are prevalent. The table also varies the pressure exerted on your spine electronically or manually depending on the extent of your injury .
Perfect For All Ages and Body Types
The Roller table is quite versatile and can be used in varying applications. For instance, it is suitable for relieving the muscles and spine tissues, stretching the joints, improving fluid circulation, enhancing mobility and much more. It is effective for all kinds of people whether children, adults, large, small, young, heavy, petite, as well as old. The table comes with several adjustments that enable the chiropractor to adjust the settings to suit the needs at hand. Increasing or decreasing pressure is achieved by varying the height of the rollers. The intensity of the vibrations can also be changed depending on the desired relaxation or comfort .
The above are just some of the main benefits of a roller table. It helps improve fluid circulation in your spine, reduces muscle spasms, stretches the joints, and relieves the body. In addition, it can be used for stretching ligaments and muscles, especially if you are an athlete and sportsman, improving mobility and reducing fatigue, treating injuries due to poor posture or an accident, as well as enhance general wellness. If you are having spine-related issues or injuries then you will find Intersegmental Traction table quite appropriate.
