Spinal Traction uses motorized traction table that may help relieve back pain. Spinal decompression works by gently stretching the spine. This changes force and position of the spine, which takes pressure off spinal discs. By creating this negative pressure on the discs, bulging or herniated discs may retract and take pressure off nerves and other structures of the spine.
This in turn, helps promote movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the disks so they can heal.
Athletic + Kinesiology Taping
Kinesio Taping theory is based on neurology and the effect of mechanical stimuli on various systems in the body.
K-Tape produces pressure and stretch on the skin that stimulates mechanoreceptors. This stimulates the nervous system and modulates pain responses.
The tension also frees the fascia of movement limitations through moving the skin relative to the target tissue.
K-Tape also facilitates decompression of microvalves to improve lymphatic flow. The end result is swelling and inflammation reduction.
