I run an Evidence Based Chiropractic office, what this means is that I use the best available research and evidence to treat each individual persons injury/pain to get you back to moving and doing the things you love to do as fast and safely as possible. One of the ways I am different from the majority of chiropractors is that I use a flexion distraction table to treat most low back conditions. Flexion Distraction is a chiropractic technique used to treat many conditions of the lumbar spine. It is a non-surgical technique aimed at increasing spinal motion and resolving disc bulges and disc herniations. The goal of Flexion Distraction is to decompress the spine by applying gentle stretching or traction to the lower spine. The combination of this special adjustment table and very gentle pressure utilizes flexion-distraction and decompression to increase the disc height between vertebrae, decompressing the spinal column and restoring the spinal joints to their proper alignment and range of motion. The chiropractor can adjust the different sections of the table to neutralize the effects of gravity and then apply gentle pressure to the affected areas as they move through a more normal range of motion. Movements are repetitive and usually slow, without any quick thrusts or undue pressure.
The Flexion distraction technique has been found to:
- reduce pressure within the disc
- widen the spinal canal
- improve range of motion in spinal joints and in arms, legs, and shoulders
- improve posture
- reduce pressure on spinal nerves
- increase circulation
- improve nerve communication
I do not use “big package” deals, I treat you as an individual and together we find what works for you and your conditions, even if its not seeing me. My goal is to get you feeling better fast!
