How a Flexion-Distraction Technique is Performed

The flexion-distraction technique is done using a special chiropractic table. The table can allow a person who is lying face down on the table to bend at the waist while keeping his/her legs straight and bound together.  The up and down motion bending the patient at the waist is done in a slow, rhythmic way while the chiropractor is placing his/her hand on certain vertebrae on the patient’s spine which allows an opening and healing movement for the vertebrae and the discs of the spine.

I went in for my first shockwave treatment for my arthritic knees and neuropathy in my feet. The doctor treated my knees and calves, and wow you know when it hits a Hotspot. I was sceptical if this would work or not, well 5 hours later, my knees do not hurt and I can feel the texture of the carpet. It is amazing, and can not wait to see what other treatments can bring back. The office and staff where very nice and the area very clean. Go take advantage and try there special.

I just started with Dr. Goodman and she has been amazing so far. She takes her time, listens to her patients, and is very thorough throughout the whole process. I am excited to continue to work with her to get to feeling better, and after one session I already am.
