Hill Flexion-Distraction Table
Flexion-Distraction is a technique used to treat vertebral disc injuries and chronic low-back stiffness. We utilize a Hill flexion-distraction table that flexes (bends) the patient’s back while distracting (stretching) the spine. This technique has been clinically proven to successfully treat disc issues such as bulging or herniated disc(s) and degenerative disc disease. Dr. Furbee uses non-surgical spinal decompression for acute disc patients since it is much more focused in the injured disc and is effective for pain relief. We use the flexion-distraction technique as a method for maintenance or the occasional disc flare-up injury. The flexion-distraction technique is gentle and effective.
