Chiropractic treatment table and method for spinal distraction



Chiropractic treatment table and method for spinal distraction



Official Gazette of the United States Patent & Trademark Office Patents 1275(4), Oct 28



A chiropractic treatment table and method for treating a patient's spine for providing true longitudinal distraction alone or in combination with vertical flexion and extension, lateral flexion, and/or rotation. The treatment table includes a longitudinally moveable head support portion slidingly mounted on an anti-friction structure whereby the head support portion is freely moveable with practically no frictional or drag. In view of the anti-friction structure, the net longitudinal distraction force is primarily only that which is applied by the chiropractor thereby not requiring adjustment or compensation for drag or other forces, and thereby providing the chiropractor substantially improved control of the actual applied distraction force for administering the desired distraction.
