How Flexion Distraction Technique Works

During this treatment, the patient lies face down on the specialized table. At the same time, the chiropractor applies gentle, controlled traction to specific spine segments, creating a cyclical motion that flexes and distracts the vertebrae. The low force and rhythmic movement help to promote spinal health and pain relief by enhancing fluid exchange within the intervertebral discs, reducing pressure on spinal nerves, increasing spinal mobility, and stimulating the natural healing processes of the spine.
