Using The Home Traction Bench To Reduce Back Pain & Increase Spinal Health
The home traction bench is used for back pain, which is one of the biggest reasons that so many people take the time off work. It costs business billions every year in lost revenue, although that is not really important to the individual person who has to suffer with it. Back pain can be anything from a numbness or throbbing, to something that sends lightning bolts along the spine and into the leg. Typically, this is caused by disc bulges and herniations, as well as degenerative arthritis.
In some cases it can be totally debilitating, and people can find themselves having a limited lifestyle. It used to be that only painkillers, clinic visits or in chronic cases, surgery, were the only options, but now we have other options available, such as the home traction bench.
Whether you have been suffering from back pain for only a short time, or you have had it years, then the home traction bench is designed to help relieve you of some, if not all of the pain that you have. Apart from surgery, most nonsurgical methods only relieve you of the pain for a short time. Painkillers will only work for a few hours, steroid injections can relieve it for a few weeks, but long term use of them causes other problems.
Pain in the spine can be caused by the shock absorber between the vertebrae wearing out, a slipped disk, joint irritation, arthritis, an accident, and a number of other conditions. The spine is a delicate structure, it not only supports the weight of most of our body, but it also protects the spinal column. Back problems can cause swelling around the vertebrae, which puts pressure on the nerves causing numbness and pain, and you can also get muscular pain in the region.
The traction table is designed to for spinal decompression, and this allows the spine and the area around it to gently be returned to its correct position. You are in full control of the device and only set it to apply the traction that you feel comfortable with. Over time, you will discover that as more stretch is applied, you will start to get more relief from the device.
There is now no longer any need to continue with the short term methods of treatment. Using the home traction bench on a regular basis will see your condition improve, and once the pain starts to reduce naturally, you will find that you can get on with your life again.
A 2019 study in BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders used mechanical lumbar traction on 133 patients from 28 orthopedic clinics suffering chronic non-specific low back pain. The results indicated lumbar spine traction can provide a distraction and over 83% of patients who received application showed an immediate positive response after traction.
