In brief: Various Types

There are a variety of methods for traction.
Manual traction done by hand is probably the most common in a chiropractor's office. Saunder's units, posture pump etc. are examples of mechanical traction which can often help with neurological symptoms which may mimic carpal tunnel syndrome.

In brief: Proceed with caution

Traction is typically either manual ( using the hands of the provider) or mechanical (with a machine).
Make sure you have a condition that responds to traction and be careful.
