Dr. Adams can help you know whether your spine has any abnormal curvature to it.

Leander Flexion-Distraction

At first, the technique was concerned with specific decompression to the lower lumbar vertebral segments and the intervertebral disks that were creating compression. As more patients experienced the beneficial results of being adjusted during flexion-distraction, it became apparent that a whole new protocol had been created.

This technique gets excellent results with a minimum amount of pressure on the lumbar discs. Scoliosis reduction without surgery. When viewed from the back, the spine usually appears perfectly straight. In some cases, however, the spine is curved.

In addition, the vertebrae (the bones that make up the spinal column) are twisted. This condition is known as scoliosis. A small degree of curving in the spine does not usually cause any medical problems. But larger curves can lead to certain disorders, such as posture imbalance, muscle fatigue, and back pain. Severe scoliosis can interfere with breathing and lead to spondylosis (arthritis of the spine; pronounced spon-dl-OH-siss).

In some cases surgery is recommended to reduce the amount of the curvature. In certain individuals we can reduce or correct the scoliosis without the use of surgery. This can save tens of thousands of dollars and a lifetime of disfigurement.
