What is Flexion-Distraction Therapy?

Flexion-distraction is another form of non-surgical spinal decompression therapy that is performed on a segmented table that moves up and down as your chiropractor slowly manipulates your spine. The manipulations, combined with the movements of the table, stretch and decompress your spine, relieving your back, leg, neck, or arm pain. Maintenance of intervertebral height of the spinal column is crucial to decrease burdens on spinal facet joints and recovers spinal mobility, whereas recovery of intervertebral height widens respective intervertebral foramina, distracts the posterior annulus fibrosus, and increases the diameter of the central canal, the recovery of intervertebral height improves spinal alignment by indirectly widening the intervertebral foramen where spinal nerve exists.

Flexion-Distraction in the lumbar spine drops intradiscal pressures to as low as -192mmHG pressure, widens the spinal canal area by as much as 28% and increases the intervertebral foramen by 2mm. F/D as non-surgical spinal decompression takes the pressure off spinal discs, nerves, and helps promote the movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the discs so they can heal.
