The Flexion Distraction Technique is a gentle, non-force adjustment procedure to help the spine heal naturally. The goal of Flexion Distraction is to decompress the spine by applying gentle stretching or traction to the lower spine.
The technique has been found to:
- Reduce pressure within the disc
- Widen the spinal canal
- Improve range of motion in spinal joints and in arms, legs, and shoulders
- Improve posture
- Reduce pressure on spinal nerves
- Increase circulation
- Improve nerve communication
Not only is this process pain-free, many patients report that they find the procedure pleasant and relaxing.
The technique is performed on a special table, which has moving parts to effectively separate the different parts of the spine.
