Dynamically Treating Back Pain with Flexion-Distraction
Tailoring a treatment to your specific back pain
Your back pain is completely unique and your treatment should be too! This should not be such a radical statement to read but it is at odds with the idea of allopathic treatment, where the same drugs and the same surgery is used to treat every case. The truth is, every diagnosis is different, so we take a different approach that detects the underlying cause of your condition and follow it up with a multi-dimensional plan for treatment that seeks to improve your body’s ability to heal itself without the necessity for surgery or pharmaceutical aid.
Flexion distraction is one of the tools we can use to treat back pain
It is a technique that uses a specialized table to elongate the spine while we simultaneously perform a targeted pumping motion that flexes the spine. The goal of flexion-distraction is to:
- Increase space between the discs and reverse intradiscal pressure
- Facilitate the retracting of bulging disc material
- Put a stop to painful impingement on spinal nerves
