Flexion Distraction Technique at John A. Kulig Chiropractic
If you suffer from nagging limb, neck, or back problems, you may wonder how you'll ever recover your comfort and functionality without undergoing major surgery or numbing your body with drugs. Thankfully, chiropractic care and related natural healing methods can help you feel and move better without surgery or painkillers. You can experience one such healing method, flexion distraction technique, right here at John A. Kulig Chiropractic in Oak Lawn.
What Is Flexion Distraction Technique?
Flexion distraction technique is a safe, gentle effective way to relieve the effects of spinal nerve compression. This common problem can occur for a variety of reasons. For example, an accident can push your cervical or lumbar vertebrae out of position, herniating them in the process. Normal age-related changes in the discs can also cause them to bulge outward from the spinal column. Either way, when disc problems pinch the major nerve roots that extend from the spinal cord, you can experience pain or stiffness in your neck or back. You may also experience pain and other odd symptoms in an arm or leg.
Flexion distraction technique takes the pressure off the nerve tissue. In this technique, you lie on a special segmented treatment table. Our chiropractor, Dr. Kulig, carefully flexes the board holding a particular region of your body upward and downward. This action also flexes and distracts the vertebrae in the part of the spine receiving treatment. At the same time, our chiropractor will apply manual techniques to specific vertebrae, giving discs the best possible chance to shift back into a more normal position -- which permits nerves to function normally again. This manipulation also helps infuse bulging or injured discs with much-needed nutrients.
Part of Your Holistic Chiropractic Treatment Plan
Flexion distraction technique can prove highly effective in the treatment of many kinds of discomfort. We may recommend it for low back pain, sciatica symptoms, chronic headaches, spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, neck stiffness, spinal arthritis, and pain or numbness in the upper extremities. It can even aid in the treatment of scoliosis pain and failed back surgery syndrome.
Our chiropractor can integrate flexion distraction technique into a holistic natural care program customized for your specific needs. The right combination of flexion distraction technique, chiropractic adjustment, nutritional counseling, exercise, and other helpful strategies can help you regain your quality of life.
