For more than half of patients seeking chiropractic care, low back pain is the primary reason. It is, therefore, not surprising that low back pain has been a central focus of chiropractic research. More than 80% of people experience low back pain at some time in their lives. For many, the condition becomes chronic.
Back pain is the leading cause of work-related disability and missed days of work. Moreover, chronic back pain is associated with reduced mobility, quality of life, and longevity, along with increased rates of a variety of other health problems. Conventional medicine has found the treatment of low back pain to be quite challenging and this is where chiropractic care comes in.
Back Pain Solutions
At Balanced Body, Dr. Baker uses a Flexion distraction table. There is absolutely no twisting on your spine with this technique. When using this table it feels like you are on a wave in the ocean. Using Flexion distraction for low back pain conditions takes just 12 visits in 29 days average. Flexion distraction for neck pain conditions takes just 13 visits average. Now if you have a disc herniation, logically, that will likely take more visits/days than if you have a sprain or strain. Plus, these are just averages. Some back pain and neck pain sufferers find relief in just a visit or two. Now that’s a welcome relief!
Flexion Distraction follows evidence-based and documented protocols. The federally funded studies use and test them. Flexion distraction doctors read them in the medical-published textbooks and peer-reviewed journals. The goal of flexion distraction care is at least 50% relief of pain in 30 days before any advanced imaging or testing is ordered. 91% of patients are happy with flexion distraction in 90 days.
FLEXION DISTRACTION THERAPY OFTEN HELPS WHEN NOTHING ELSE DOES
Flexion Distraction Therapy is well researched, and has been proven effective. Chiropractors have been using this method for many years to manage the symptoms of sciatica and disc herniation and have saved many patients from ongoing pain management, discomfort, temporary disability and spinal surgery.
Flexion Distraction is a chiropractic technique used to treat many conditions of the lumbar spine. It is a non-surgical technique focusing 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 dysfunctional.
