Flexion distraction

This gentle but deep technique has become a benchmark treatment in chiropractic. It employs the use of a special treatment couch which can be positioned in such a way as to isolate the spinal segment required and then apply intermittent traction, thereby decompressing the disc and relieving pressure on irritated nerves. Flexion distraction is particularly indicated in cases of disc hernia and/or stenosis with sciatica.
