What Is Flexion Distraction?

Flexion distraction is a gentle, non-surgical therapy performed on a specialized table. It involves slowly and rhythmically decompressing and mobilizing the spine to restore range of motion and take pressure off spinal discs, joints, nerves, and muscles.

During a treatment session as a patient, you’ll lie face up on the flexion distraction table. Your chiropractor will gently pull and rock specific segments of your spine to relax muscles and increase mobility. This technique also boosts circulation, reduces inflammation, and stimulates healing. It's effective for treating neck pain, sciatica, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, and more.

Benefits of Flexion Distraction

Compared to high-velocity spinal adjustments, flexion distraction offers advantages like:

  • Extremely gentle with minimal discomfort
  • Appropriate for seniors or those with osteoporosis
  • Can target precise spinal levels without manipulating other joints
  • Suitable for both acute injuries and chronic back pain
  • Non-invasive with little to no recovery time

Clinical research shows flexion distraction helps increase range of motion, decrease nerve irritation, and reduce muscle spasms and back pain severity. Patients report great outcomes without the cracking sensations of traditional chiropractic adjustments.
