Flexion-Distraction is a mild, safe, and controlled type of traction that’s been created especially for the treatment of back pain. A Flexion-Distraction table gently pulls the spine apart, stretching and elongating the muscles and ligaments around the discs. This helps to relieve pressure on the discs and promotes spinal healing.
Most people feel relief from their back pain after a few sessions on a Flexion-Distraction table. In fact, Flexion-Distraction is often one of the most successful treatments for chronic lower back pain.
Flexion-distraction therapy is a manually operated technique that uses a special table to apply gentle, rhythmic pressure to the spine. The patient lies on the table face down, and the doctor attaches straps around the patient’s thighs and lower back. With the doctor’s manual adjustments, the traction table then gently stretches the spine, which helps decompress the discs and relieve pressure on the nerves. This pressure helps relieve pain by decompressing the discs between the vertebrae and increasing blood flow and nutrients to the spinal area.
The treatment is usually provided in a series of sessions, with each session lasting about 20 minutes. Most patients find the treatment to be relaxing and painless.
Flexion-distraction therapy is most commonly used to treat several different conditions including:
There are many benefits of flexion-distraction therapy. In addition to providing relief from pain, this therapy can also help improve range of motion, increase flexibility, and reduce inflammation. Plus, it is a non-invasive treatment option. This means that there are no invasive surgeries which completely eliminates risks and side effects from the treatment. It’s also an all-natural treatment option, which means that there are no medications or prescriptions necessary.
Another benefit is that it can be an effective treatment for patients who have not responded well to other types of treatments such as physical therapy or epidural injections.
Research has found that patients who received Flexion-Distraction Therapy had significantly less pain than those who received no treatment or received another type of treatment such as acupuncture or massage.
