Loading and unloading maneuvers like those produced by Repetitive Cervical Traction™ and the Therapeutic Wobble Chair™ prepare the spine to be rehabilitated. These loading and unloading procedures have proven to produce the following results:
Changes the gel in the disc nuclei to a hydrosol (pliable fluid like state), begins rehydration and increases disc height. Increase disc, ligaments, and tendon, strength.
Decreases potential for injury from sudden applied loads and/or accumulative traumas.
Prevention of adhesions during healing of injured tissues and improves integrity of injured joints.
Lubrication and nourishment of spinal joints.
Temporarily lowers the holding energy of spinal muscles, discs and ligaments.
Increases cerebrospinal fluid pressure and flow resulting in increased brain activity and mental sharpness and feeling of physical and mental well-being.
Aligns the disc and ligaments tropocollagen fibers with stress loads.
