Powered traction table

Summary Information: Powered traction table

Powered traction table: A powered traction table is a split table with an electric motor to extend the two halves apart. The secured patient lays face up (supine) on the table and is immobilized with a pelvic harness and shoulder harness or cervical harness. The table is then extended to pull the upper and lower back in opposite directions. The applied force (traction) on the spine stretches the muscles and ligaments, which separates the intervertebral disc space and provides pain relief to pinched nerves (nerve root compression).
