Flexion Distraction

Flexion distraction is an effective tool for engaging the spine and working towards a more pain-free method of physical therapy.

Each vertebra is separated by a spinal disc that helps to absorb shock and keep the bones from rubbing against one another. If the spinal disc slips out of place or starts to wear down, it can lead to pain and discomfort. Flexion distraction therapy takes the pressure off of the spine, relieving compressed spinal discs or pinched nerves along the spine. It can also help relieve tension in the neck that may be contributing to headaches and other uncomfortable symptoms.

Flexion distraction therapy can also help restore healthy functioning and communication in the nervous system by alleviating pinched or compressed nerves. A pinched nerve can disrupt messages from the brain to the rest of your body and cause pain, tingling, numbness, and other symptoms. By improving the alignment of your spinal discs, it helps to restore nerves to their proper positioning and healthy functioning. This type of therapy can be used to address a specific issue or injury or to help you manage chronic pain.

Routine chiropractic care including flexion distraction can help support healthy habits, keep your spine and joints functioning properly and even help boost the immune system.
