Flexion Distraction Technique In Denver CO
Flexion-distraction technique in Denver, Aurora, Wheat Ridge, and Greenwood Village has become the most widely used approach to treating symptomatic disc injuries involving back pain and more specifically disc herniations, bulges, and spinal stenosis.
Flexion-distraction involves the use of a specialized table, where the patient is placed face down, and the table is moved into flexion to create negative pressure in the disc. This allows the disc bulge to regress, which helps restore the joint function, reduces inflammation, and improves movement.
There is usually no pain associated with the treatment. The flexion-distraction technique’s gentle pumping allows the center of the intervertebral disc to assume its central position in the disc. It can help move the disc away from the nerve, reducing inflammation of the nerve root.
We recommend a series of treatments combined with rehab therapy and supplementation.
