Flexion Distraction is a therapeutic technique used to treat people with a variety of pain syndromes that may not have responded to other treatment approaches. It is a gentle chiropractic treatment procedure used for spinal, back, neck, arm and leg pain.
The Flexion Distraction adjustive procedure is based on a distractive force (supplied with the contact hand) combined with table motion. Flexion-Distraction technique uses the Cox table to restore normal physiological range of motion to the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spinal joints.
Flexion-Distraction may help address pain symptoms resulting from:
- Disc bulges
- Facet joint syndrome
Additional goals of the flexion-distraction adjustment include decreasing intradiscal pressures and decompressing inflamed/ compressed spinal nerve roots.
