Flexion-Distraction Technique

Your back pain is unique; let’s work together to find a unique solution 

At Associates in Chiropractic, we believe that the spine is a key to wellness. Because every single human movement is either effected by or has an effect in relation to the spine, there are a lot of forces conspiring to move it out of alignment. A misaligned spine leaves you vulnerable to a host of side-effects, not least of which include pain, limited range of motion, poor circulation, muscle tension and nerve impingement. The important thing to remember is that symptoms will always point to a cause; it is our job to determine this cause and set a course for natural treatment. Today we will highlight one modality that is particularly effective at treating back pain with accompanying leg pain: flexion-distraction. 


The benefits of flexion-distraction

Flexion-distraction utilizes a specialized table that elongate the spine while we simultaneously provide a gentle pulse that flexes the spine. This does the following things: 

  • Increases space between intervertebral discs
  • Allows for repositioning of bulging disc material
  • Alleviates nerve impingment 
  • Helps to realign the spinal joints

This is a pain-free and natural treatment that seeks to correct the source of your dysfunction.
