We now have a second flexion distraction table. Flexion distraction therapy is very gentle; the technique is applied by mild inputs from the practitioner and feedback from the patient. It works by applying a mild amount of motion to the specific areas targeted by the treating practitioner. These specific motions assist in stretching soft
tissues as well mobilizing joint structures. Patients typically note a general sense of relief and in turn look forward to and often request this treatment.
Each of the practitioners has their own unique style and preferences when using flexion distraction. In addition, it is generally used in combination with other therapies. After we received our first flexion distraction table about one year ago we have had a strong positive response from patients. Furthermore, we feel it has helped to improve our overall patient outcomes. Ask any of our therapists about this treatment option to see if it's for you.
