Manual Traction

Manual Traction, often called distraction of joint surfaces, involves the therapist using his or her hands to promote healing and alleviate pain. This gentle stretching of the spine can loosen tight muscles, relieve pressure on the structures of the spine and improve circulation.

While Manual Traction is most commonly applied to the cervical spine (the neck), it is also implemented at the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, or ankle/foot. This treatment helps to relax muscles, stretch tight scar tissue, and facilitate an increased range of motion.

These treatments are often used in conjunction with additional joint mobilization techniques to help the patient reach their functional goals.
