This non-invasive treatment option uses a gentle spinal motion to relieve pain and improve mobility.

If you're looking for a safe and effective way to manage your back pain, flexion distraction at Boca Health & Wellness Center in Boca Raton, FL, may be right for you.
What Is the Flexion Distraction Technique?
Flexion distraction is a type of chiropractic care that uses a gentle stretching motion to relieve back pain. Unlike traditional chiropractic adjustments, flexion distraction does not require any forceful twisting or popping of the spine.
How Is the Flexion Distraction Technique Performed?
During a flexion distraction treatment, the patient lies on a specially designed table. The table is equipped with pulleys and weights that gently stretch the spine. The treatment is usually performed for 15-20 minutes, and most patients report feeling relief after just a few sessions.
Conditions Treated with the Flexion Distraction Technique
Flexion distraction is commonly used to treat conditions such as:
This condition causes the discs in the spine to bulge or rupture, which can lead to pain and inflammation. Flexion distraction can help to reduce the pressure on the discs and relieve pain.
Degenerative Disc Disease
This condition occurs when the discs in the spine begin to break down, leading to pain and stiffness. Flexion distraction can help to increase the space between the discs and relieve pressure on the spine.
This condition occurs when the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back to the legs, becomes compressed. This can lead to pain, numbness, and tingling in the legs. Flexion distraction can help to relieve pressure on the nerves and improve symptoms.
This condition occurs when the spaces between the vertebrae narrow, leading to pain, stiffness, and weakness. Flexion distraction can help to widen the spaces between the vertebrae and relieve pressure on the spine.
Scoliosis is characterized by an abnormal curvature of the spine. Flexion distraction can help to reduce the curvature and relieve pain.
This condition is characterized by pain and stiffness throughout the body. Flexion distraction and chiropractic adjustments help to relieve symptoms and improve mobility.
This condition causes inflammation and pain in the joints. Flexion distraction can help to reduce inflammation and improve the range of motion.
