BTL introduces traction therapy, a therapeutic method to relieve pain by stretching and realigning the spine. Spinal traction straightens the spine and helps to improve the body’s ability to heal itself, its primary function being to relieve pain in the cervical or lumbar spine.
The BTL-Traction device can be used in the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders such as degenerative disc disease, degenerative joint disease, disc pain, facet joint syndrome, disc herniation, hypomobility, joint pain, disc prolapse, protrusion disc, root pain, muscle spasms.
How does it work? Traction relieves pressure on the spine and alleviates pain. By gently stretching the spine, the force and position of the spine change. This change takes the pressure off the spinal disks, which are gel-like cushions between the bones in your spine, by creating negative pressure in the disc. As a result, bulging or herniated disks may retract, taking pressure off nerves and other structures in your spine. This, in turn, helps promote the movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the disks so they can heal. The results of spinal traction include pain relief, proper spinal alignment, and joints distraction.
The therapy is pleasant for the patient due to his comfortable handling and preset protocols, the innovative belt system, and the advanced settings of the parameters depending on the diagnosis. Check all product specifications here: www.btlnet.com/traction.
With the help of other physical therapies, many people find great success with spinal traction. Treatment reduces pain and the body is more capable of healing itself. Some people only need spinal traction therapy for a short period of time. Others need it throughout their lives.
