Flexion Distraction Technique (Leander & Cox)

Flexion Distraction Technique

Low back pain, stiffness, and poor range of motion are all reasons to visit a chiropractor in Simi Valley, CA. At Simi Valley Spine and Wellness, we use the Leander Technique, Cox flexion distraction technique, and other forms of spinal manipulation to maximize the benefits of chiropractic care. If you have a bulging disk causing you pain, it's time to see how chiropractic can be part of your overall care plan.


Treatment with Flexion Distraction Techniques

The Leander Technique is a flexion distraction technique uses the positioning of the patient to influence the movement of a specific area of the spine. It is commonly used for bulging disks that can cause pain, numbness, or tingling when the disk is pressing down on a nerve ending. Flexion distraction techniques like the Leander Technique create a vacuum, encouraging the bulging disk to go back into place.

What to Expect from Chiropractic Care

Most people begin care with a chiropractor because of pain after an injury or a chronic pain condition that becomes difficult to manage. When you see a chiropractor in Simi Valley, CA, you will go through an initial evaluation to determine the cause of your symptoms. If a bulging disk is suspected, the Leander Technique may be used as a way to reverse the damage being caused by a bulging disk.

Understanding Chiropractic Treatment

Chiropractic care does not hurt, and you may feel relief after your first session. It's important to remember that each session builds upon the previous session. You will be scheduled to see a chiropractor several times a week in the beginning of your treatment. Slowly you will wean down to chiropractic care once a week or so. You may be taught strengthening exercises and work with a chiropractor on a monthly basis once you are healed. Maintenance sessions once a month are a great way to stay healthy once you have recovered from the pain and stiffness you first entered therapy for.
