This is a technique where the therapist uses their hands to perform joint decompression and is commonly used on the spine to relieve pressure on the vertebral segments.

The purpose of this treatment is to provide a subtle and controlled force to the spine in order to reduce pain, inflammation or compression. It can help with the “pinched” feeling of a herniated disc. Your therapist can also educate you on how to perform self-traction at home. Our therapists, Bentzen and Shannon, demonstrate this technique.
