The doctors at Stout Chiropractic Clinic use lumbar flexion-distraction, a technique developed by Dr.  James Cox of Fort Wayne, IN.  It is considered the “gold standard” and is used by physicians worldwide to treat low back & leg pain, & other spinal pain conditions.  The specially engineered table is hinged, in the middle, and allows the chiropractor to very specifically traction or stretch a specific area of the spine.  The technique is comfortable and creates a negative pressure on the disc which reduces bulging, swelling and relieves nerve pressure.  At Stout Chiropractic, we prefer this well researched “hands-on” approach to spinal care vs. mechanical, computer operated, decompression therapy.
