What is Flexion-Distraction?

Flexion-Distraction (F/D) is a gentle chiropractic treatment utilized for neck and back pain. It is a safe alternative to back surgery for those 95% of patients whose conditions do not demand surgical intervention.

The Flexion-Distraction Treatment

For disc related conditions, F/D:

  1. Creates more room around the disc to improve movement and remove tension on the nerves.
  2. Allows the center of the disc to assume its central position to relieve irritation of the spinal nerve.
  3. Restores vertebral joints to their physiological relationships of motion.
  4. improves posture and locomotion while relieving pain, improving body functios, and creating a state of well-being.

For non-disc related conditions, F/D:

  1. Increases posterior disc space.
  2. Decreases disc protrusion and reduces stenosis.
  3. Stretches the ligamentum flavum to reduce stenosis.
  4. Opens the vertebral canal.
  5. increases the metabolite transport into the disc.
  6. Opens the apophyseal joints and reduces posterior disc stress.
  7. Enlarges intervertebral foraminal openings, giving patency to the nerve.
