What is Flexion-Distraction Technique?
Flexion-Distraction is one of the most well-researched chiropractic techniques in use today. It is also one of the most gentle and effective methods for treating back pain, sciatic nerve issues, herniated discs, and leg pain.
How does it work?
Dr. Everett uses a special Flexion-Distraction table. The patient lies on the table and the doctor gently stretches the specific areas of the spine to relieve pressure, realign the spine and restore greater range of motion.
How soon are results expected?
This technique can produce amazing results with many cases. Of course, each patient and each set of circumstances is unique and results therefore will vary. However, if improvement is not detected within a few weeks, additional follow-up with studies or a referral to another specialist may be in order.
Who can benefit from Flexion-Distraction?
Because Flexion-Distraction is one of the most gentle techniques available, patients of all ages can benefit. Dr. Everett has used this technique on a patient over 100 years old!
