Pelvic traction is a therapy program designed to relieve pain in the lower back, hips and legs normally associated with low back disorders. This pulling action on the pelvic region can also aid in the reduction of muscle
spasms and help with the objective to properly align the lower vertebrae of the back.
This Pelvic Traction Kit is delivered as a complete package including:
- a pelvic belt made of a strong yet comfortable material
- spreader bar
- weight bag
- Bucks apparatus
Usage of Pelvic Traction Kit
To use the traction, first wear the pelvic belt around your hips. Ensure that the belt is not too high or on the waist as the pull of the weight back has to be on the pelvis. The belt has long straps on both sides which will attach to the weight bag via a spreader bar and a rope and pulley system. The physician will specify the weight to be used and frequency of the traction. Usually the traction has to be applied for a few days. You should get out of the traction only to go to the bathroom.
