Flexion/Distraction Technique is used to treat mechanical injuries and issues involving the back and neck. A special treatment table
is used that moves up and down, and side to side; providing traction,
which mobilizes the spinal and sacro-iliac (SI) joints, addresses disc compression, and
decreases spasm in the surrounding soft tissue. Multiple studies have
shown this specific technique to decrease intradiscal
pressure thereby hydrating a degenerated disc or helping to decrease the
severity of disc herniations.
