If you have one, you know the misery they can cause, and since they tend to be chronic they go through cycles of improvement and aggravation. When aggravated this table can help ease the pain of chronic disc problems by reducing the pressure on the disc. This newer
technology has been shown to:
- Reduce pressure on the spinal nerves from a disc bulge or herniation
- Increase spinal motion within the disc and spinal joints
- Be a conservative option to surgery for herniated discs
- Reduce symptoms of sciatica
Flexion Distraction is an adjustment method, using a table that bends in half. While the patient lays face down on the table, the doctor pushes the table down which tractions the low back to create negative pressure on the disc allowing increased blood flow, oxygen, waste removal, nutrients and decreased wear and tear. The movement is slow and doesn’t usually cause additional pain. As the disc heals, and inflammation is decreased, symptoms like low back pain, sciatica, stiffness and discomfort walking are all reduced.
Chiropractors have been using this method for many years now and it has proven to be safe, effective treatment even when conventional treatments have been unsuccessful.
