Flexion-Distraction Therapy

Flexion Distraction Therapy - Chiropractors Near Me [Published on May 19, 2016] Flexion-Distraction is non-surgical, doctor-controlled, hands-on spinal manipulation performed with the patient lying on a Hill Air Flex F-n-D Chiropractic Table which permits effective administration of passive spinal manipulation as well as decompression of the intervertebral discs.

Flexion-distraction therapy is a non-surgical chiropractic technique that utilizes a multi-function table that enables the chiropractor to combine decompression with other gentle non-force spinal adjustment techniques. Flexion-distraction is well suited for patients who need a lighter touch, such as patients recovering from spinal surgery, currently undergoing rehabilitation, or those with osteoporosis or of an advanced age.

Flexion-distraction therapy is well researched and is an effective intervention for:

  • Reducing pressure on the spinal nerve(s) from a disc bulge or herniation
  • Pain and disability among patients with lumbar spinal stenosis
  • Increasing spinal motion within the disc and spinal joints
  • A conservative option to surgery for herniated discs
  • Reducing symptoms of sciatica
  • Improving posture

This therapeutic intervention utilizes a specialized table that gently stretches the spine and, in effect, becomes an extension of the chiropractor’s hands, applying both decompression and movement of a joint(s) through a range of motions. The gentle pumping rhythm used creates negative pressure inside the disc creating a vacuum that sucks the gelatinous fluid back in. As the nucleus pulposus (vertebral disc’s jelly-like filling) re-attains its central position, pressure is taken off of the involved spinal nerve, reducing inflammation, and subsequently relieving the associated back and/or leg pain related to vertebral disc displacement.
