Flexion Distraction Technique

Flexion-Distraction Technique

Pain in your muscles and joints is a very common problem. Sometimes, joint and muscle pain subside after several days. Other times, pain can develop into a chronic condition, lingering for months, or even years. You may find yourself managing your condition through prescription medication. Flexion-distraction therapy performed by a chiropractor is a good option that can provide you with the natural and non-invasive pain relief you need. If you are in the Coconut Creek, Pompano, Boca Raton, or Deerfield areas, we can help you here at Chiro Fitness.


How it Works

Flexion therapy is conducted on a shifting table that moves around as our chiropractor gently adjusts your spine. The movements result in the relief of pain in the arms, neck, legs, and back. These movements also work to decompress your spine. During adjustment, parts of the table will move and drop to allow our chiropractor to effectively adjust you without applying a lot of force. Flexion therapy is effective in reducing pain and improving range of motion.


Flexion-distraction therapy offers a variety of benefits, including:

  • Decreased pressure on your discs and spinal nerves
  • Relief from herniated disc pain
  • Reduced back pain
  • Increased range of mobility and motion
  • Relief from headaches and neck pain
  • Decreased numbness and pain in arms, legs, buttocks, and back
  • Posture improvement

Flexion-distraction therapy is especially useful in addressing lumbar spinal stenosis. Patients suffering from this condition experience a considerable reduction in most of their painful symptoms.

Is Flexion-Distraction Right For Me?

Spinal stenosis symptoms are just one thing that can be improved through flexion-distraction therapy. Different types of back pain can be treated through this technique as well. Many people with osteoarthritis and scoliosis see improvement in their condition following this treatment.

Flexion-distraction therapy can also help address the following conditions:

  • Ankylosing spondylitis
  • Sciatica
  • Sacroiliac syndrome
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Sprains
  • Strains
  • Muscle spasms

Flexion-distraction therapy may even be helpful for those that are dealing with knee pain. Patients with chronic or acute knee pain who receive flexion-distraction therapy typically experience a significant reduction in knee pain. This pain reduction can easily be maintained through continuous therapy.
