Traction (a.k.a Spinal Decompression Therapy) is a physiotherapy discipline that addresses the functional and mechanical aspects of discogenic pain. There are two key types of traction, these being Manual and Mechanical Traction. Performed on-site by our expert Chartered Physiotherapists to relieve jointrelated compression, Manual Traction is a gentle stretching technique that treats the neck, back and peripheral joints.
Mechanical Traction, on the other hand, is a machine-based treatment and is primarily used when diagnosing severe neck and disc problems. Whilst typically unnecessary, Gold Standard will ensure their patients receive the finest Mechanical Traction treatment available if and when they require it.
