*intersegmental Traction -Table / with rollers
Aug. 13 / 2011
Has anyone been on a *intersegmental-Traction-Table ? I went to a local chiropractor explaining my Chronic low back pain level was really troubling me . So after x-rays , he put me on this Table that had rollers under the surface that electronically moved under me - back & forth , as i lay there for 20 minutes or so . the relief afterwords , however brief , was wonderful .
Visits were expensive , eventually had to stop .
Has anyone else tried this and had good results - however limited your pain relief lasted ?
10 Years ago I had two Laminectomy-Lumbar surgeries L-4-5, S-1 Fusion / with hardware-*in . / 2nd. operation - hardware taken *out . Was left with Severe Chronic low back pain . Take medication daily to help control pain , but often its not enough . Am good about not abusing it / meds . Physical therapy hasn't helped , the patch , steroid shots - acupuncture hasn't helped , Tims electro unit - prolotherapy / nada . Yoga / no . Pool therapy helps somewhat at times . 24 / 7 ... i hurt .
Just been checked again by Orthopedic Spine doctor , going to try Deep Tissue Massage thru scar area in low back . He said it can't hurt to try it . Anyone had any luck with that ?
I'd like to hear if anyone has tried the Traction Table , and what results you had . Hope to hear from you soon .
