Spinal Decompression of Lumbar Spine using Flexion/Distraction
Flexion Distraction is a chiropractic technique used to treat many conditions of the lumbar spine (low back). It is a non-surgical technique aimed at increasing spinal motion and resolving disc bulges and disc herniations. The treatment is excellent as a safe, gentle, non-force procedure and works well to take pressure off the spinal nerves that may be injured or dysfunctional.
How? Flexion distraction drops intradiscal pressures as low as -192mmHg and widens the spinal canal area by as much as 28%. As a bonus, flexion distraction returns motion to the spinal joints, too!
How fast? Flexion distraction for low back pain conditions takes just 12 visits in 29 days average. If you have a disc herniation, logically, that will likely take more visits/days than if you have a sprain or strain. Plus, these are just averages. Some back pain and neck pain sufferers find relief in just a visit or two.
