People often wonder if they must go for traction devices that can heal a condition like a sore neck or a sore back.

In practice, a simple traction device can work wonders for your health and well being, to the extent that you'll forget you ever suffered from pain. When one suffers from something like a sore back, he may at times choose to oversee the condition altogether. But this is not desirable, and even if the pain goes away by itself in a matter of a few days, ignoring the symptoms is just not worth the risk.

Medical research has shown that most cases of back ache are not caused by a serious underlying cause, and these are broadly classified as non specific back pain. In this case, the reason causing the pain could be something as simple as a pinched nerve in the back, and it is often stipulated that the backache will leave by itself in some time, maybe an hour or a couple of days.

But a back pain could be indicative of a serious underlying condition, like herniated disc, sciatica or maybe even osteoarthritis, and one must consult a physician if the backache is severe, it occurs too often or persists for too long.

Physiotherapy is very often considered one of the best treatments for an ailing back. And one of the reasons for the same is that physiotherapy is a physically administered treatment. Our spine is an avascular organ, which means that there are no veins in it, and the only way it receives a supply of blood and oxygen for nutritive and restorative needs is by movement. So physical therapy can go a long way for healing a sore back by providing decompression in the vertebrae which may have been compressed.

As a physician manually applies pressure on the spine, it opens up the space between the vertebrae, and aids in quick recovery for any underlying conditions.

In the same way, as the vertebrae are decompressed and the spine moves closer to normal functioning, it facilitates healing of any underlying conditions, injuries or ailments, as the symptoms subside and the patient can recover.

Spinal traction can also be administered mechanically, both, as lumbar and cervical traction. This often involves the use of devices like an inversion tables or some specific cervical traction and neck stretcher devices, which apply force on the spine or the neck such that the back is decompressed.

One could nevertheless face some problems when one goes for physiotherapy. Visiting a therapist could be a cumbersome task, more so if the therapist is located a long distance away from one's home. Similarly, inversion table heals the pain, but the pain can sometimes return when one leaves the inversion table. Another practical difficulty that people sometimes face is that an inversion table restricts motion.

In such a case, going for some mechanical traction devices is the preferable option, most importantly because even while these are exceedingly effective, they need no external aid for usage, and one can use these devices as many times as one needs.
