Spinal Flexion / Distraction
An evidence based chiropractic solution for disc-related back and neck pain. If you suffer from low back pain and/or leg pain due to herniated discs, facet syndrome (inflammation or degeneration of inter-vertebral joints), an old laminectomy (failed back or neck surgery), or spinal stenosis and have gotten negative results with surgery, drugs, physical therapy or exercises, then the non-surgical flexion/distraction therapy is an exciting new procedure that is offering hope to many!
This treatment reverses this condition by:
- Essentially increasing the space known as intervertebral foramina where the spinal nerves leave the spinal cord to different parts of the body, either to the arms when originating from the neck cervical vertebrae or to the legs if originating from lower back lumbar vertebrae by up to 28%.
- It also reduces the intra-discal pressure (pressure within the herniated disc) dramatically thus allowing the retraction of the protruding gelatinous material of the nucleus in certain cases, as well as increasing the intervertebral disc space by up to 2 mm. allowing release of pressure on the spinal nerve and a dramatic reduction of pain.
- It also causes the "pumping" of nutrients and fluids back into the weakened disc so that it can heal, permanently.
- It is safe, comfortable, and best of all, does not require surgery!
