Flexion distraction technique is a gentle, non-surgical form of chiropractic spinal manipulation that produces an accessory motion to the spine.  The procedure can reduce pain, re-establish lost spinal motion  and remission of radiating pains down the leg.

During the procedure, the patient lays on their stomach as the doctor palpates the spine and the table begins to move.  The procedure relieves p ressure on the vertebrae discs, increases disc height and increases the size of the foramina, where the nerve roots exist.  This technique has been correlated to help failed back surgical syndrome, disc herniations, ruptured discs, bulging discs, sciatica, stenosis, failed courses of steroid injections, spondylolisthesis and more.
