FLEXION DISTRACTION THERAPY

Flexion distraction therapy, also known as Cox Technic or simply flexion-distraction, is a chiropractic technique used to treat certain spinal conditions, particularly those related to the intervertebral discs. Developed by Dr. James M. Cox, this gentle and non-invasive method involves the use of a specialized treatment table that allows controlled and rhythmic flexion and distraction of the spine. Flexion-distraction therapy is commonly used to address conditions such as disc herniation, sciatica, and spinal stenosis.

Flexion-distraction therapy is commonly used for conditions such as disc herniation, sciatica, facet joint pain, and spinal stenosis. It may also be employed for certain cases of spondylolisthesis and degenerative disc disease.

FLEXION DISTRACTION TABLE

A flexion-distraction table is designed with moveable parts that allow controlled movements. The patient lies face down on the table, and the chiropractor uses specific hand placements to target the affected spinal segment.

The chiropractor applies a gentle and controlled flexion force to a specific spinal segment. This involves a rhythmic pumping motion that helps to decompress the affected intervertebral disc.

Simultaneously, a distraction force is applied, which helps to create space between the vertebrae. This distraction aims to reduce pressure on the spinal nerves, alleviate compression, and enhance circulation in the affected area.

HOW CAN FLEXION DISTRACTION THERAPY HELP

By decompressing the spine and improving mobility, flexion-distraction therapy aims to reduce pain associated with spinal conditions. It may also promote the natural healing process of injured tissues.

The chiropractor can customize the treatment based on the patient’s specific condition, adjusting the table’s settings and applying varying degrees of force to address individual needs.

It’s important to note that flexion-distraction therapy is generally considered safe and well-tolerated. However, as with any medical intervention, individual responses can vary. Chiropractors typically conduct a thorough examination and may use imaging studies to determine the appropriateness of flexion-distraction therapy for a particular patient.
