Flexion Distraction

Many people suffer from back pain but just because you're experiencing discomfort, like pain, numbness or tingling doesn't mean you have to turn to drugs or surgery to help find relief. Our chiropractor can provide you with natural and non-invasive care so that you can better achieve your wellness goals.


At Taulman Chiropractic in Columbus, IN, we employ methods to help alleviate pain and one such technique is called flexion distraction. We will explore down below what this method entails, who can benefit from it and why you should consider giving it a try.

What Is Flexion Distraction?

Flexion distraction therapy is designed to alleviate spinal disc compression by stretching the spine.

A unique table is utilized to help provide the movement for stretching the spine. Our chiropractor will use special techniques and manipulations to realign your and decompress your spine. Spinal compression and misalignment can contribute to different problems and flexion distraction can help.

Why Should You Consider Flexion Distraction?

Here are some key reasons to consider the benefits of flexion distraction therapy;

Patients who experience pain and struggle with limited mobility due to discomfort are ideal candidates for flexion distraction treatment. It can help them regain their range of motion without aggravating the pain. Individuals with herniated discs can also greatly benefit from this treatment approach. By decompressing the spine, we can help alleviate pressure on the spinal segments, potentially relieving discomfort caused by compressed disc material.

One of the main benefits of flexion distraction is that it can act as an alternative to drugs or surgery for those who are seeking pain relief. Drugs can come with harmful side effects, such as addiction, and surgery can come with long recovery times. Chiropractic care can help you to avoid all of that so you don’t have to worry.
