Flexion/distraction is a treatment technique that utilizes a special table that helps to decompress joints in the body. It is often prescribed by the chiropractor as an alternative to back surgery. This technique will help people suffering from a variety of back conditions, such as:
- Herniated or ruptured disc
- Facet Syndrome
- Sports injuries
This type of therapy increases the space between the vertebrae, which reduces pressure on the intervertebral discs, decreases irritation on the spinal nerve roots, and restores movement to the joints being treated.
