Flexion – Distraction is a specialised technique that addresses and relieves the pressure on nerves due to bulging discs or disc herniation. The commonly known ailment of sciatica is caused by this pressure on the nerves. As well as pain, other more serious symptoms associated with sciatica can be pins and needles, numbness, muscle weakness and possible loss of muscle control resulting in things like foot drop. We often treat those patients who have been everywhere and received no relief and no answers to their problems. When it comes to lower back Disc injuries, flexion-distraction has allowed us to achieve some amazing results. We have even prevented some patients from having highly invasive surgery, which ultimately is no guarantee of improving their symptoms long term.
