Flexion Distraction or Spinal Traction, which is the best option?
If you have back pain, then there are multiple options to focus on. Most of the time you will have to choose between things like spinal traction or Flexion Distraction. But which one is the best, and what can you expect from them?
Spinal traction is a decompression therapy system that helps release pressure buildup in your spine. It can be done both mechanically and manually, depending on the situation. Spinal traction can relieve pain caused from pinched nerves, degenerative disc disease problems, sciatica and even herniated discs. This is a quick, easy, and effective method to relieve any excess pressure buildup in your spine.
Flexion Distraction is a technique used to treat many conditions of the lumbar, or lower, spine. It is a non-surgical technique that aims to increase spinal motion and resolve disc bulges or herniations. This chiropractic technique can relieve pain you may be feeling in your neck, back, and/or lower extremities. During your appointment, the doctor will manually adjust your lumbar spine in a safe and effective manner.
