CERVICAL WALL TRACTION
The Pettibon Cervical Wall Traction is a neck and back rehab exercise that can be performed at home or while traveling.
This neck and back exercise is designed to decompress the spine and discs, by performing repetitive tractions. This loading and unloading of the spinal discs can help patients with neck pain, upper back pain and mid back pain associated with poor postures and sports injuries. Additionally, this type of traction can help the discs in the low back as well, since the entire back is involved in this exercise.
Many runners in Richmond, VA find that this neck stretch can be very helpful to decompress the neck, mid-back and low back after a run.
This type of spine rehab should only be performed if prescribed by your chiropractor. There are many reasons and conditions that would eliminate this type of rehab as proper care option.
If you are suffering from neck pain or have any further questions, please contact our Richmond chiropractor today to schedule a consultation.
