Flexion and Distraction

Flexion and Distraction Chiropractic Technique | Papillion ChiropracticAfter undergoing a thorough examination which leads the doctor to a specific diagnosis of the spine condition to be treated, the patient lies prone or face-down on a specially-designed table. For patients with a herniated or “slipped” disc, the Flexion and Distraction Technique can increase the intervertebral disc height to remove annular tension on the annular fibers and nerves by making more room and improving circulation.

Flexion and Distraction Chiropractic Technique

  • allows the nucleus pulposus, the center of the disc, to assume its central position within the annular fibers
  • relieves irritation of the spinal nerve
  • restores vertebral joints to their physiological relationships of motion
  • improves posture and locomotion while relieving pain, improving body functions, and creating a state of well-being

For patients with other conditions causing back pain such as:

  • facet syndrome
  • spondylolisthesis
  • sprain or strain
  • scoliosis
  • transitional vertebra
  • sacroiliac subluxation
  • stenosis

The Flexion and Distraction Technique provides all of the above benefits plus the ability to place the spinal joints into normal, painless movements so as to restore spinal motion without pain.
