Manual Traction

Manual Traction is a technique used to separate bones and joint articulations to create space and decompress soft tissues such as intervertebral discs, nerves, synovial joints. It is most commonly used in the cervical spine (neck), but can also be used for the lumbar spine (low back), sacroiliac (SI), hip, shoulder, knee and ankle joints, etc.
