What is Flexion Distraction?

Shorelife Chiropractic & Wellness offers Flexion Distraction to patients in Brick, New Jersey. What is Flexion Distraction? It is a chiropractic technique that we use to treat lumbar spine pain or medical conditions. Since there is no surgery in the technique, a chiropractor helps you increase spinal motion without causing more damage or pain.

If you suffer from disc bulges or herniations, then Flexion-Distraction therapy provides a safe and gentle alternative to traditional medical procedures. It helps to take the pressure from a dysfunctional lumbar. To find out more about Flexion-Distraction, feel free to contact our clinic today.

What Are the Clinical Benefits of Flexion Distraction?

There are some distinct advantages of Flexion Distraction that separate it from other types of chiropractic care, such as:

  • Helps the spinal nerves when you experience a disc bulge or herniation
  • Increases your range of motion along the spinal column and joints
  • A non-invasive alternative to surgical procedures
  • Minimizes the symptoms of sciatica (pinched sciatic nerve)

Flexion-Distraction Procedure

At Shorelife Chiropractic & Wellness, a chiropractor uses a specialized table that distracts and flexes your spine in an automated rhythmic motion. While it may seem harsh, the motion is actually quite slow, steady, and gentle. Using the table, we try various manual techniques to help ease the pain created from the herniated disc or bulge in the spine.

Flexion-Distraction promotes proper movement, which pulls the disc bulge back into the spine. The movement also allows adequate blood flow throughout the central nervous system and nutrients into the spinal disc.

Using Flexion Distraction to Treat Spinal Conditions

Although the main objective of Flexion-Distraction Therapy is to remove pressure from a bulged disc, it can also help relieve painful symptoms from other conditions, including:

  • Ruptured disc
  • Lower back pain
  • Arthritis
  • Stiffness
  • Slipping vertebra
  • Scoliosis
  • Damaged ligaments

 

In addition, it can also help you if you suffer from failed back surgery. Your previous surgery may have caused additional pain or created more injury in your back. Flexion-Distraction therapy will remove the pain instead of adding to it.
