How Can Traction Improve Posture?
As the only known conservative method used to restore normal curves to the spine, traction is a necessary and important part of your chiropractic care. It is simply a sustained force applied to the spine in a specific direction for the purpose of restoring normal spinal position, similar to orthodonture.
These traction forces are necessary to reduce abnormal spinal curvatures and correct abnormal postures, and will provide increased stability to damaged spines. To ensure proper application, safety and effective care, spinal traction should only be applied by a practitioner certified in CBP® or Clinical Biomechanics of Posture®.
Undergoing Traction Therapy
Our CBP® Doctors are trained to determine the proper time for traction therapy to begin without any increase in symptoms.
It has probably taken many years to develop abnormal spinal positions; therefore, it will take some time to return the posture back to normal. Traction forces will be applied to the neck, back or both areas to achieve optimal spinal correction.
This type of care will be slowly introduced. As such, it is important to keep an open line of communication with your CBP® Doctor. If, at any time, there is an increase in symptoms, it is important to notify the doctor to determine modifications in force application or duration of traction.
