Mechanical Traction

During mechanical traction, much like spinal decompression, a traction table is used to help stretch the neck, lower lumbar, or spine. The goal is to relieve back pain, neck pain, and/or leg pain. Our skilled chiropractor, Dr. Karp, also works to promote an optimal healing environment for bulging, degenerated, or herniated discs.

Mechanical Traction

Mechanical Traction is another form of decompression therapy offered here at State Line Chiropractic. It allows us to combat different conditions like pinched nerves, slipped discs, sciatica, lower back pain, and more. By using different forms of traction equipment, we can target different areas of the spine to relieve pressure where necessary.

Mechanical Traction | Decompression Therapy in Glen Mills, PA


Mechanical Traction is a type of therapy applied to the spine that brings patients many benefits. First, we attempt to create a negative intradiscal pressure to promote retraction or repositioning of the herniated or bulging disc material. Secondly, we create a lower pressure in the disc that will cause an influx of healing nutrients as well as other substances into the disc.

Mechanical Traction

The Triton DTS is a modular multi-application platform for the treatment of bulging discs, hernias, scoliosis, sciatica, and more with the use of high-tech, advanced computers to calculate the logarithmic spinal decompression curve. A servo amplified system then applies the force where necessary.
