One of the best forms of treatment we use to relieve back pain is call intersegmental traction. This is a specific modality to relieve back pain resulting from a disc injury such as a disc bulge or disc herniation.

The patient lays on the therapy table and the upper torso and lower pelvis is strapped. The traction treatment gently separates the spinal joints relieving disc related pressure.
