What are the Benefits of Chiropractic Table?
How Does it Work?
Having unaligned joints and spines can cause problems for your movement by disrupting the fluid flowing through your joints and spines. The fluid flowing properly is important for some parts of your body like your spinal discs to receive the proper nutrients. However, having a misaligned joint disrupts the fluid causing the discs to lose nutrients and thin eventually impacting you long-term. A flexion-distraction table helps with properly circulating the fluid. It is very similar to a standard chiropractic table but instead the table itself can side-flex and flex. This assists with patients having relief from a non-weight bearing force. The patient will start off on their abdomen while the chiropractor helps to stretch and flex the patient. This chiropractic equipment stops the patient from making any active movements allowing the doctor to properly stretch the patient’s muscles.

Maintenance of Chiropractic Table
The amount of maintenance necessary to keep the chiropractic equipment in good working condition needs to also be looked at. Compared to a normal chiropractic table, the flexion-distraction table contains a lot of different parts that move and drop in many different directions. Over time, all of these segments will either get stuck or worn out which can impact the patient’s spinal adjustment. Therefore, in order to keep the flexion-distraction table in top working condition, you should look at the different service packages available when buying your chiropractic equipment. It is a worthwhile investment in the long run.
