Flexion Distraction

Flexion/distraction manipulation decompresses the disc by applying a gentle stretch or traction to the lower spine. It is applied in a series of repetitive slow movements without quick movements or thrusts. The procedure is often used for people with disc problems, spinal stenosis, facet syndromes, or osteoarthritis, but can also be used in other ways, such as to gently mobilize joints.

Flexion-Distraction technique uses a specialized table to restore normal physiological range of motion to the thoracic and lumbar spinal joints. Flexion-distraction manipulation is a gentle, low-force adjusting procedure which works with the body's natural design to aid it in healing properly.


Additional goals of the flexion-distraction adjustment include transfer of metabolites into the spinal disc, decreasing intradiscal pressures and decompressing inflamed/compressed spinal nerve roots.

Studies show that more than two-thirds of patients report excellent to good improvement with a typical rehabilitation program.
