Relief from Neck Pain at CORE Health Centers
Cervical traction therapy is a simple chiropractic procedure that CORE Health Centers uses to correct the alignment of the entire spinal column. In cervical traction therapy, tension is placed on the head to pull it up and away from the neck, stretching the muscles and ligaments around the vertebrae of the spine and expanding the space between the vertebrae. Cervical traction therapy releases nerve compression and eases muscle spasms by gently stretching the spines connective tissues. The goal is to provide the opportunity for muscles to relax and pinched nerves to be released. Relief can last from a few hours to several days after each cervical traction therapy treatment.
Cervical traction therapy have been used for decades to help treat and prevent neck pain. Cervical traction therapy provides a constant or intermittent and non-painful force to stretch muscles and ligaments while increasing the space between vertebrae.
