What is Flexion Distraction?
Flexion Distraction is a safe and gentle procedure used by chiropractors to treat a variety of conditions affecting the spine. This non-surgical technique has been proven to increase spinal joint motion and decrease disc bulges and disc herniations. Flexion Distraction involves using a special table that is designed to flex and distract the spine in a slow rhythmic motion. The Chiropractic Doctor will apply a manual pressure to the affected spinal region while the table is being flexed. Doing so opens up the intervertebral disc space, and reduces irritation and pressure on the spinal nerves.
