Flexion-Distraction (Cox)

« Back

This is a specific chiropractic technique developed from chiropractic and osteopathic principles that uses a special Flexion-Distraction table. The technique uses a hands-on gentle, non-force adjustment utilizing the table to apply the distraction spinal adjustment. Flexion-Distraction is primarily utilized to treat cervical and lumbar disc herniations, non-disc spinal disorders, and to increase mobility of spinal joints.

What to expect from this technique: Tractioning the spine and then flexing it can resolve pain from joint and disc problems painlessly. It is a powerfully effective, conservative approach to low back and leg pain, and an alternative to explore before recommending surgery. For patients with non-disc related conditions causing back pain (facet syndrome, spondylolisthesis, sprain/strain, scoliosis, transitional vertebra, sacroiliac subluxation, stenosis), Cox Flexion-Distraction provides all of the above benefits plus the ability to place spinal joints into normal movements to restore spinal motion without pain.
