What is it?
Flexion-distraction is a low-force, low-velocity and safe technique that aims to relieve pressure off spinal nerves or discs that may be compressed or injured. This technique is performed on a segmented table that slowly and repetitively decompresses the joints in your spine. These movements temporarily create more space for the intervertebral discs and nerves in the spine.
What can it help with?
Flexion-distraction is a non-surgical alternative treatment that may help people with disc bulges/herniations, disc degeneration, muscle spasms, low back strains or sprains, sciatica, scoliosis, arthritis, etc.
