Chiropractic Physician Dr. Marc Browner knows that chiropractic care, when combined with various other non-invasive natural procedures, can not only bring pain relief, but can lead to a whole new vital and active way of life. That is why he is pleased to offer, among other procedures, flexion distraction for those patients for whom it is indicated. Flexion distraction is often very successful in relieving pain in patients who have not responded well to other treatments.
In flexion distraction, the patient lies on a special adjustment table that enables Dr. Browner to apply gentle pressure to various areas of the back while the table gently moves in order to stretch and bend the back. Everything is done in a very relaxed and rhythmic fashion, so there is no jarring sensation or rough movements that would cause further damage to inflamed or sensitive tissues.
Dr. Browner has had much success utilizing flexion distraction therapy in patients who have dealt with back and neck pain and who have been told that surgery may be their only option. Because flexion distraction increases the space between vertebral discs, pressure is relieved from nerves and surrounding tissues. This increased intervertebral space also allows for a greater flow of blood, oxygen, and nutrients while enabling toxic wastes to be removed from the area, as well. Irritation of the spinal nerve is also decreased as the disc resumes its more natural position within the spinal column.
Not only does flexion distraction bring about increased intervertebral space and all of the advantages associated with an increased in disc space height, but many patients report improvements in posture and mobility once agonizing pain has been diminished. Others find that body functions have increased and they experience an improved state of overall well-being. The benefits of flexion distraction are numerous, including:
