Bracing with traction is a treatment method that involves using a brace to hold the spine in proper alignment while applying gentle traction to help stretch and decompress the spine. This can help reduce pressure on the nerves, discs, and other structures in the spine, which can lead to pain relief and improved mobility.
One of the most common conditions that can benefit from bracing with traction is spinal stenosis, a condition that occurs when the spaces within the spine become narrowed, putting pressure on the nerves. Bracing with traction can help to alleviate this pressure and reduce pain, numbness, and tingling in the legs.
Other conditions that may benefit from bracing with traction include herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, and spinal arthritis. Bracing with traction can also be used to help prevent these conditions from worsening and can be used to help improve function and mobility in the spine.
Our chiropractors and acupuncturists will work closely with you to determine whether bracing with traction is the right treatment option for you. If it is, we’ll design a personalized treatment plan that includes the use of a customized brace, as well as specific exercises and other therapies to help you achieve optimal results.
