Manual Flexion-Distraction Therapy

Utilizes a special table that the doctor uses to apply a very gentle but specific traction force to the spinal joints and discs of the low back. It can be effective at treating the symptoms of low back disc herniation and degenerative stenosis. 

This type of traction is doctor directed and requires constant one on one contact with the doctor while they treat you.  This is not a treatment that the doctor sets you up for and then leaves you by yourself.  This is a much more specific way of tractioning each individual spinal segment. 

This is a unique service and technique offered by Ortho Athlete. Medical providers of various specialties refer their patients for manual flexion-distraction therapy for conditions such as herniated and bulging discs and chronic back pain.
