The Flexion Distraction is primarily used in treating cervical and lumbar disc herniations, spinal stenosis, sciatica pain, and non-disc spinal disorders. This technique involves the use of a specially designed chiropractic table (known as a Cox Table) with the patient typically lying face down. After a thorough examination of the affected area, Doctor Adamec will isolate and stabilize spinal section just above, and gently flex the lower part of the table. This stretching motion will allow the affected disc(s) to move back to its proper place. The procedure is very gentle, without force, and not painful. Many patients report feeling pain relief during the treatment as well as a suctioning effect as the herniated disc is slowly moved back to its normal position.
Flexion Distraction is a 100% natural, drug free treatment option for chronic back, neck, and sciatica pain. Even for patients who have already had back surgery (many of whom are told that their only option is more surgery), Flexion Distraction has a truly staggering success rate in treating disc herniations and sciatica pain. Documented research has shown that the Flexion Distraction technique (with an 8 - 10 week treatment schedule) has patient success rates between 89% and 95%. Not only can it resolve lumbar and cervical herniated discs, but Flexion Distraction can also resolve stenosis (narrowing of the spinal canal), lateral recess stenosis (narrowing of the canal where the spinal nerves exit), and failed back surgery syndrome.
