What is Flexion-Distraction?

Flexion-distraction is safe, gentle, and effective chiropractic treatment for back and neck pain.

It is a non-surgical, doctor-controlled, hands-on spinal manipulation performed with the patient lying on a flexion-distraction table. This table permits the effective administration of flexion-distraction and decompression adjustment and manipulation.

Well-researched and documented, flexion-distraction and decompression helps relieve spinal pain and return patients to their desired quality of life by

  • Dropping intradiscal pressure to as low as -192mm Hg;
  • Widening the spinal canal foraminal area by 28%;
  • Reducing pressure on the spinal nerves; and
  • Returning motion to the spinal joints.
