Chiropractor in 33602 Describes Traction for Back Pain

Dr. Joe Papia, Chiropractor in downtown Tampa Fl explains how traction helps back pain


Traction is sometimes used in the treatment of low back pain. It is especially beneficial for disc related conditions such as degenerative disc disease.

Some the reasons for traction include:

  • Disc bulge
  • Nerve pressure
  • Joint arthritis

Traction for back pain helps to seperate the joints and disc in the spine relieving pressure. When the pressure is relieved the disc bulge can go back into the disc space, the joints are relieved of pressrue and any pressure on the nerve root is relieved.

Mild traction or intermeittant traction has been used with success for the treatment of low back pain in my office.

If you live in downtown Tampa fl or 33602 zip code and are suffering from low back pain, call for an evaluation to see if traction can help your conditions.
