This is a chiropractic procedure 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 while re-establishing motion to the lower spine and pelvis.
Our treatment tables, at Planck Chiropractic & Rehab, are all equipped with automatic flexion and distraction therapy. This therapy allows for easy stretching of the deep lower back muscles and ligaments, while at the same time decompressing injured or herniated discs that need movement to regain their health. Keep in mind, disc do not have a blood supply, the only way they can get nutrition is through movement. Think of it like a sponge, it doesn’t absorb much water unless you apply pressure and then decompress.
