Dr. Eric explained that his office uses Flexion Distraction with most patients. Flexion Distraction Therapy is an adjustment that takes place on a segmented table that moves with your chiropractor as they perform adjustments. The movements of the table help to stretch, decompress, and re-position your spine, allowing the space in between the joints to open up and stretch while you are being treated.

Dr. Nepo said that this feels fantastic, doesn’t cause any popping, so it is very gently, and helps to increase the regular benefits of a chiropractic adjustment.  This table allows gravity to help enhance the effects of your adjustment while helping to re-align your spine.

Other benefits of this type of therapy include the decreasing of herniated disks, improved mobility, stress and stiffness release, decrease of back pain, neck pain, and headaches, pain relief, and improvement of posture.

All in all, if you’ve been injured in a car accident, it’s important to speak with a doctor who works on a lien basis to put you on the path to recovery. Be sure to speak with Dr. Eric Nepo or any of our doctors who work on a lien basis to see if Flexion Distraction Therapy is right for you.
