Flexion-Distraction works through a specialized process of stretching and applying pressure to the spine. The treatment is performed on a unique type of treatment table, which enables the patient to be flexed and adjusted in a gentle and rhythmic motion. The result is a therapeutic decompression that can provide much pain relief.
Unlike traditional chiropractic adjustments or manual spinal manipulation, there’s no cracking, thrusting or quick movements. The Flexion-Distraction treatment method can be very useful for those patients suffering from disc problems, as well those experiencing from a variety of chronic or reoccurring pain syndromes who have not yet found success with other treatments.
