This technique is non-surgical, doctor-controlled, hands-on spinal manipulation performed with the patient lying on the flexion/distraction table, a proprietary, specially designed chiropractic instrument. This table permits the effective administration of flexion-distraction and decompression adjustment and manipulation.
Well-researched and documented, flexion-distraction and decompression helps relieve spinal pain and return patients to their desired quality of life by:
- Dropping intradiscal pressure to as low as -192mm Hg
- Widening the spinal canal foraminal area by 28%
- Reducing pressure on the spinal nerves
- Returning motion to the spinal joints
The goal of flexion/distraction technique is to help the spinal pain patient go from “pain” to “no pain” as quickly as possible following the “rule of 50%” which governs the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management.
Evidence-based flexion/distraction technique is appropriate for conditions causing low back and leg pain as well as neck and arm pain. It also reduces pain attributable to:
- Disc herniation
- A slipped disc
- A ruptured disc
- Facet syndrome
- post-surgical continued pain (pain after back surgery) aka FBSS (failed back surgical syndrome)
- Other conditions
