Adjusting Table

Flexion-distraction technique is a non-invasive (non-surgery) gentle treatment that involves the use of a specialized table that gently distracts or stretches the spine and which allows the chiropractor to isolate the area of disc involvement while slightly flexing the spine in a pumping rhythm.  This pumping rhythm helps to increase circulation, improve disc height and posture while reducing back pain.

Flexion-distraction techniques are good for:  Failed Back surgical Syndromes, Herniated Disc, Slipped Disc, Spinal Decompression Therapy,   Back Pain, Sciatica, Leg pain, "Whiplash" injuries, Stenosis, Radiculitis, Spondylolisthesis, Muscle Weakness, Buttock pain, Pins and Needles symptoms, and many more conditions.
