Spinal Decompression
& Flexion-Distraction

If you've been grappling with chronic back pain, sciatica, neck discomfort, or even chronic tension headaches, you may find solace in spinal decompression therapy. This innovative approach involves stretching the spine using a specialized traction table, offering potential relief from a range of spinal issues.

Relief and Mobility Through Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression therapy is a non-invasive method that aims to alleviate chronic back pain, sciatica, neck pain, and more. This therapy involves controlled stretching and relaxation of the spine using a traction table. By intermittently stretching the spine, this treatment stretches spinal muscles, applies mild tension to ligaments and spinal joints, and expands the intervertebral foramina. Additionally, spinal decompression may create a negative intradiscal pressure, potentially helping to retract or reposition herniated or bulging disc material. It is often used to address lower back and neck pain associated with degenerative disc disease, bulging or herniated discs, and spinal osteoarthritis.

If you're living with chronic back pain, sciatica, neck discomfort, or related issues, consider exploring the potential benefits of spinal decompression therapy, specifically flexion distraction. Contact us today to learn more about how this gentle and controlled traction technique can provide you with relief and help you regain your mobility and comfort.

Exploring Flexion Distraction 

One specific technique within spinal decompression therapy is flexion distraction. This gentle, safe, and controlled form of traction therapy is designed with the sole purpose of providing relief from spinal pain. During a flexion distraction session, patients lie face down on a specially designed chiropractic table. The chiropractor then employs a gentle, rhythmic motion to distract and flex the spine, helping to alleviate discomfort.

While undergoing flexion distraction, a section of the treatment table may drop or move to adjust your body's positioning, ensuring optimal comfort during the procedure. Patients remain in a relaxed position throughout the session, eliminating the need for any active movements on their part. This approach allows the doctor to stretch spinal structures without causing spasms or bodily reactions.
