Flexion-Distraction Technique for Back Pain

Chiropractic uses a wide variety of modalities to treat back pain

Because every case of back pain is unique, each person’s spine will respond to a different protocol for care. At Holmes Chiropractic, we begin with a comprehensive medical history and physical examination to determine what is causing your specific pain or dysfunction. Once we have pinpointed the root of the problem, we can move forward with a plan for treatment that utilizes one or multiple of the modalities in which we specialize. 


Flexion-distraction is most often used for back pain with accompanying leg pain. 

This type of adjustment uses a specialized table that elongates the spine while we simultaneously provide a pumping motion that flexes the spine. Without causing pain, flexion-distraction is very effective at:

  • Increasing space between discs
  • Allowing for retraction of bulging disc material
  • Alleviating spinal nerve impingement 

Treating back pain the most effective way we know how: naturally!

At our office in Houston, we believe in the spine as the pinnacle of wellness in the human body. Therefore we seek its proper alignment as a crucial component of overall wellness. We utilize many modalities including the flexion-distraction technique in support of a properly aligned spine.
