A cervical/lumbar traction device is used to help relieve pain associated with neck root compression (cervical) and nerve root impingement in the
lumbar region by relieving pressure on the spine and skeletal system, gently stretching the tight muscles and soft tissues of the spine area.
By helping to open the space between the compressed vertebrae, a traction device assists in releasing the tension and pressure of the vertebrae structure.

Very helpful, they gradually increased my exercises to accomplish my goal of having no pain and greater strength. It was a much better experience than I anticipated, this was my first experience with physical therapy.
Fantastic. I came in with back pain and what I would have thought was major back instability. I think my results have been more than I could have ever imagined. My back pain is usually a zero now and I am not afraid to get back to the things that I want to do. The staff is great. Every person gives you what you need, they can all answer any questions you may have. Would it be weird to say I am going to miss this place!
Extremely helpful in helping my recovery from my injury. They were able to provide a program that helped me progress as smooth and quick as possible.
Professional staff who are concerned about their patients. Also best program ever.
“Thank you Chris and the AthletePlus team for all your help in getting my knee back to “normal”. I can use it again with ease and no pain”
It was a good experience and it really help me during the exercises. I was treated and helpful and I will come back.

I would not hesitate to offer this resource to others with similar needs regarding treatment for athletic injuries.” Triathlete and former cross country coach treated for low back pain and hamstring strain
I started my physical therapy in a significant amount of pain. After a couple weeks I stopped taking pain medicine because I was experiencing so much relief from pain. The staff was so helpful and knowledgeable. Every visit was a positive experience.
Excellent therapist with great skills and very knowledgeable in the field. I would highly recommend him for therapy to patients of any age. I am now playing golf again without back pain.
Very enjoyable. Instruction was concise and focus on my injury was expertly addressed. Chris let me describe in detail my injury and built a program specific to treating my issue.
