What is Chiropractic Care?

The spine needs to be in perfect alignment in order for your body to recieve the regular transmission of nerve impulses. This form of care allows your body to heal naturally and is usually patients primary resource for low-back pain.

Flexion Distraction Table
Flexion Distraction is a chiropractic technique used to treat many conditions of the lumbar spine. It is a non-surgical technique aimed at increasing spinal motion and resolving disc bulges and disc herniations. The treatment is excellent as a safe, gentle, non-force procedure and works well to take pressure off the spinal nerves that may be injured or dysfunctional.
HOW IS IT PERFORMED?
Flexion Distraction involves using a special table that distracts and flexes the spine in an automated and gentle rhythmic motion. The Chiropractic Doctor will use some manual techniques with the table to resolve the disc herniation or bulge. The goal is to allow the spine to move correctly in a manner that will remove pressure from the disc bulge. It does this by creating a negative pressure that pulls the disc bulge back into the spine. The flexion distraction motion also maintains healthy discs through imbibition. The motion allows nutrients into the spinal disc and keeps them well articulated.
- Reduce pressure on the spinal nerves from a disc bulge or herniation
- Increase spinal motion within the disc and spinal joints
- A conservative option to surgery for herniated discs
- Reducing symptoms of sciatica
The activator technique is one of the most common therapeutic interventions used by chiropractors. The activator is a hand held instrument that delivers a low-force impulse to specific trigger points. Because of how quick this instrument is, the body's muscles do not have time to tense up. These low-force impulses help mobilize the spine and restore motion.
- Low risk treatment
- Increases mobility
- Relives pain
DROP TABLE TECHNIQUE
The drop table technique is a safer and more effective way to perform spinal manipulation. The drop table was invented after Dr. J Clay Thompson noticed that his patients were seeing favorable results when using a "dropped" head piece. After exploring the science behind why this could be, Thompson developed the table and accompanying technique that thousands of chiropractors use today.
