Flexion-Distraction Therapy is an Alternative to Surgery for Many Spinal Conditions.You don't have to live in debilitating pain. If you have lower back pain with or without leg pain or a variety of symptoms related to injured or degenerative discs or degenerative joints, Flexion-Distraction Therapy can provide you with pain relief. This is gentle, non-surgical therapy, which helps to open the disc spaces, which reduces the pressure on the inflamed discs, joints and nerves. This therapy will also improve blood flow and nutrient exchange to the injured area, which speeds the healing process and improves the spinal stabilization.
Well-researched and documented, flexion-distraction therapy helps relieve spinal pain and return patients to their desired quality of life by:
- Decreasing the intra-discal pressure
- Widening the neuro-foraminal canals
- Reducing compression on the spinal nerves and
- Reducing hypomobility by increasing mobility / flexibility to the spinal joints
