Back Pain - Cox Technique

Flexion Distraction

For those who are suffering from long-term back pain, finding relief is essential. No matter how active you are or what you do for a living, chronic back pain can wreak havoc on your personal and professional life. Here at Midwest Chiropractic and Wellness, we offer a special form of chiropractic treatment for spinal pain called Flexion Distraction. 

What Is Flexion Distraction?

The Flexion Distraction is a non-surgical hands-on technique that is used to relieve chronic pain in specific areas of the spine. This technique is used as a way to gently decompress the spine, alleviating bulging or herniated discs. It also helps to reduce pressure on the nerves located in the spinal column. Flexion Distraction involves the use of a specialized table while applying specific amounts of manual manipulation to targeted areas of the spine in a smooth and rhythmic motion.

If you are struggling with back pain, then our team can help with the use of Flexion Distraction. Some of the prominent benefits of using this technique are:
