Traction FAQs

Many of you have been practicing your spinal traction and have asked many useful questions. If you’ve been meaning to ask questions about traction, see below.

Q: While I traction may I bend my knees? Or cross my legs? Or do a butterfly stretch for my legs?

A: Moving your legs while tractioning can cause your spine to shift away from its correction position on the traction unit. Please check with Dr. Leo beforehand.

Q: When’s the best time to traction?

A: Any time is great. Pick a time that you can add to your regular routine.

Q: May I break up the traction time into 5 or 10 minute chunks? Or take breaks?

A: Your spine will improve its alignment best if you traction all at once without a break.

Q: I get bored and fidgety during my 20 minutes of traction. What do I do?

A: Traction is a great time to be still and meditate. You can also practice SRI, breathing or prayer. Listening to gentle music is another option. Please don’t use your electronic devices like a phone or tablet. Please don’t read a book, turn your head or use your voice. These activities can strain your neck while tractioning.

Great questions everyone. Keep on tractioning!
Dr. Leo
