Lumbar spine disc injuries are very common and can create lots of pain. This is one of the most common causes of sciatica (pain travelling down the leg). With flexion/distraction (F&D), we are able to treat the disc itself without having to go in surgically and disturb the area. This is one of the only and most effective treatment methods in helping a disc injury heal. No other lumbar traction or decompression system has been shown to be as effective as flexion/distraction.
