Cox Flexion & Distraction – THE Gold Standard treatment for Sciatica

Are you suffering from pain, weakness, numbness, or tingling in your buttocks, legs, or feet? You may have a pinched nerve in your lumbar spine or pelvis.

Cox Flexion & Distraction is an adjustment procedure that ranks highly among the most effective and gentle treatments for pinched nerves in the lumbar spine, including sciatica, disc bulges/herniations, lumbar radiculopathy, facet syndrome, and many others. Based on your evaluation and consultation we will diagnose your issue and determine where your nerves may be getting pinched. Flexion & Distraction (or F & D for short) works by slightly flexing the spine to take pressure off the spinal joints and the nerves as they exit the spine. Assisted by some mild pressure from your doctor, traction is also created to decompress the spine, reposition disc material, and further reduce pressure on nerves. This can be a highly effective treatment for sciatica by itself but can also be combined with other chiropractic adjustment techniques to give you the most relief possible, while remaining within your comfort zone.

Traditional extension adjustments (what is most used to adjust the low back) to the lumbar spine can make certain conditions such as spondylolisthesis and stenosis worse. Flexion & Distraction and other flexion-based adjustment techniques offered here at Capitol Chiropractic are ideal for these patients.
