IST Tables at Bomberg Chiropractic
Intersegmental Traction Tables (IST) are designed to gently restore the normal range of motion in the spine, promoting healing and recovery. At Bomberg Chiropractic, we utilize IST tables to facilitate muscle relaxation, reduce spasms, and accelerate the progress of recovery for patients with back injuries. Athletes also commonly benefit from using an IST table regularly, though it's important to note that anyone who is physically active or dealing with back pain can benefit from this tool.

How Intersegmental Traction Tables (IST) Work
Not only is the IST process painless, but it also provides a soothing and enjoyable experience. During the treatment, the patient lies face-up on the table while rollers delicately move up and down their spine.
Operating with a dual roller system, the Intersegmental Traction Table provides constant rolling contact along the muscles on each side of the spine. This electronic mechanism ensures a relaxing experience, making it an effective tool for healing. By mobilizing the spinal column and stretching the ligaments and muscles, these tables enhance blood flow and oxygen supply to the discs, ligaments, and muscles. This, in turn, improves balance, strength, and overall mobility.
Bomberg Chiropractic is excited to introduce this valuable tool as part of our chiropractic services. Schedule an appointment today to discuss this treatment option!
