What is Flexion-Distraction?

Flexion distraction manipulation decompresses the disc by applying a gentle stretch or traction to the lower spine is used, usually in a series of repetitive slow movements without quick movements or thrusts. The procedure is often used for people with disc problems, but can also be used in other ways, such as to gently mobilize joints.

Flexion-Distraction technique uses a table to restore normal physiological range of motion to the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spinal joints. Flexion-distraction manipulation is a gentle, non-force adjusting procedure which works with the body's natural design to aid it in healing properly.

Additional goals of the flexion-distraction adjustment include transfer of metabolites into the spinal disc, decreasing intradiscal pressures and decompressing inflamed/compressed spinal nerve roots.

Studies show that more than two-thirds of patients report excellent to good improvement with a typical rehabilitation program of 12 treatments.
