The doctor often performs Manual Spinal Decompression by applying Biofreeze or massage cream along the spine and adjacent soft tissue utilizing a Flexion-Distraction (F/D) table. This table uses a gentle, non-force adjusting procedure that works with the body's natural ability for proper healing of disc and joint-related injuries. F/D provides spinal traction (lengthening) with subsequent flexion movements of the lumbar spine. This can help increase proper spinal articulation through gentle distraction of the spinal segments and joints, as well as take pressure off spinal nerves and bring nutrients and water back into the disc. It is a non-surgical, safe, cost-effective, conservative low back pain, and a definite alternative to explore if disc surgery has been recommended.
