Intersegmental Traction Technique Image

Intersegmental Traction Therapy Table

Provides hydration to the discs and massages the paraspinal musculature

Information about the Intersegmental Traction Intersegmental traction is a means of inducing passive motion into your spine for the purpose of increasing mobility and stretching spinal joints. The discs of your spine have a poor blood supply. Sustenance is accomplished and maintained through spinal joint movement. Proper spinal movement (mechanics) allow needed proteins/nutrients to enter the disc. This also allows for the removal of waste, decreasing the likelihood of bone spur formation (degenerative arthritis). Misalignment of the spine prevents this exchange from occurring. A lack of proper circulation can lead to disc thinning and degeneration of the spine. intersegmental traction helps restore proper motion and prevent this from occurring. Patients lie supine on a table which has vibrating roller-type cams beneath its surface. These massaging rollers travel slowly up and down the spine. Most patients find this form of traction to be very relaxing and therapeutic. We have 3 of these tables allowing us to treat multiple patients at once minimizing wait time.

Activator technique used by Dr. Fredrick

The Activator

A device for low impact adjustment techniques, with The Activator "you don't hear the cracks"

Information about the Activator The activator is a small handheld spring-loaded instrument which delivers a small impulse to the spine. It was found to give off no more than 0.3 J of kinetic energy in a 3-millisecond pulse. The aim is to produce enough force to move the vertebrae but not enough to cause injury.[1]

The Activator Method Chiropractic Technique is a chiropractic treatment method and device created by Arlan Fuhr as an alternative to manual manipulation of the spine or extremity joints. The device is categorized as a mechanical force manual assisted (MFMA) instrument which is generally regarded as a softer chiropractic treatment technique.In 2003, the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners found that 69.9% of chiropractors used the technique, and 23.9% of patients received it.[2] The majority of U.S. chiropractic schools and some schools in other countries teach the AMCT method, and an estimated 45,000 chiropractors worldwide use AMCT or some part of the technique.[1]
