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.

I found my visit at the Portobello Physiotherapy clinic very satisfying. The customer service was friendly and informative and the treatment I received very professional and helpful. The location of the clinic is also very convenient. I would very much recommend the clinic to everybody.
