Many people suffer from low back pain. According to an article in Harvard Health Publishing, chiropractic therapy is a successful way of treating this common problem. According to the study, after six weeks of treatment patients reported:
- less pain intensity
- less disability and more improvement in function
- higher satisfaction with their treatment
- taking less pain medicine.
In this video, Dr. Rogers demonstrates how he treats low back pain with a flexion distraction table. Flexion distraction involves using a special table that distracts and flexes the back in a gentle motion to allow the spine to move correctly so that pressure is taken off the problem area of the back. This technique is gentle and helps alleviate pressure off the spinal nerves that may be injured.
Following a chiropractic adjustment, Dr. Rogers positions a patient on a flexion distraction table to help open up the joint and facilitate motion in the lower back. This helps open up the joints to release pressure on nerves. Dr. Rogers stretches out the muscles of the patient while the flexion distraction table is moving the joints. This treatment concept helps re-establish mobility, which in turn alleviates the irritation of the lower back.
