This is a gentle, non-force adjusting approach. The thing that most patients notice first is the special table. The movements of this table help traction the spine, opening up compressed spinal discs and reducing pressure on facet joints of the spine. You could easily compare it to an accordian gently drawing apart each joint allows the spine to reset, and the pumping action enhances soft tissue nutrition and rehabilitation. Its primary purpose is to reduce compression of the joints of the back and disc herniations that cause pain. This technique is not generally used once you have reached the wellness phase.
By lying on the table, neutralizing the effects of gravity, we’re able to gently separate spinal joints and move them through a more normal range of motion. Patients find this surprisingly pleasant. We find it powerfully effective.
