Flexion/Distraction therapy often helps when nothing else has.

How does it work?

Flexion Distraction

This Chiropractic technique creates a gentle traction effect on the intervertebral disc (the disc between the vertebrae) which research has shown to create the following benefits:

  • Allows the nucleus inside the disc to assume its central position within the annular fibers and relieve irritations on the spinal nerve caused by swelling,
  • Increases the disc height to remove tension on the annular fibers and nerves by making more room and improving circulation to the area.
  • Restores vertebral joints to their normal physiological position (re-aligns the spine), improving posture and movement.
