Cox Flexion Distraction Technique

Disc Herniations react well to Cox Flexion Distraction Technique. Schedule your consult to see if F&D can help you.

The Cox Flexion Distraction Technique (F&D) Is The Most Comfortable And Effective Treatment For Many Conditions.

F&D is manipulation technique that uses a table to restore a normal range of motion to spinal joints. Flexion-distraction manipulation is a gentle technique that uses your own body to stretch and aid in the healing process.

The F&D table produces a smooth, comfortable distraction that relieves sore and tight spinal joints. The Cox Flexion-Distraction Technique is effective for a variety of problems such as:

  • Sciatica
    Lower back pain
    Hip Pain
    SacroIliac sprains
    Disc Herniations
    Muscle Spasm

What Happens Inside The Body?

When you have low back pain, the nerves squeeze the muscles and joints (in an attempt to protect you). This tightening, over time, leads to painful and achy joints. Flexion Distraction relieves these guarded joints by overriding the nervous system and allowing the joints to breathe. During the 5 minute treatment, your body will enjoy:

increased blood flow to injured areas;
relaxation of overstimulated muscles (guarded muscles); and
reduced pressure inside the disc.

Can Cox Flexion-Distraction Help Me?

F&D is one of the best treatment options for lower back pain because it’s gentle and safe. It can counteract the effects of disc degeneration. An evaluation by our doctor will determine if F&D is the best choice for your condition.
