Mechanical Traction

This is a form of decompression therapy performed on the spine to reduce pressure on injured or bulging discs by stretching out the spine and its attaching ligaments and muscles. It acts to increase the distance between the vertebral bodies where the discs lie. Spinal traction has been proven to be effective in relieving acute disc pain.

Attended Portobello Physiotherapy Clinic for Lower back pain, physio service was excellent, they were able to explain to me in a clear manner the cause of my pain and what needed to be done to make it better. With a combination of hands on treatment and exercises my back has never felt better. I highly recommend Portobello Physiotherapy for anyone suffering with lower back pain.
