How does Flexion-Distraction Work?

For Disc related conditions:

  1. Increases the intervertebral disc height to remove annular tension on the annular fibers and nerve by making more room and improving circulation.
  2. Allows the nucleus pulposus, the center of the disc, to assume its central position within the annular fibers and relieves irritation of the spinal nerve.
  3. Restores vertebral joints to their physiological relationships of motion.
  4. Improves posture and locomotion while relieving pain, improving body functions, and creating a state of well-being.
