What Is The Flexion-Distraction Technique?
This is a gentle form of chiropractic treatment that has proven beneficial for those suffering from neck and back pain. This method uses a specially designed segmented table. When the patient is placed on the table, our chiropractor can begin manipulating the spine while the table moves the patient in different positions.
These movements add gravity to the manual manipulations being performed by our chiropractor. This combination of movements, gravity, and manipulation help to relieve the pressure that is on the spine. This can be used to bring the spine back into proper alignment, while also creating negative pressure on the discs on the spine. This is sometimes necessary so that healing of the discs can take place.
Who Benefits from this Technique?
This procedure is recommended for anyone who is dealing with neck or back pain issues. Because of the gentle nature of this treatment, however, it is especially beneficial for those who have recently undergone surgery.
This method is useful for those who are dealing with the following conditions:

- Ruptured disc
- Injury recovery
- Neck pain
