Barnes Flexion Distraction Table

With the Barnes Flexion Distraction Table, pressure is applied to specific areas of contact that are intended to relieve pain, as well as restore range of motion and realign the spine. It is usually a very gentle experience for the patient. This makes flexion-distraction particularly well-suited for patients who need a lighter touch, such as those with osteoporosis or of an advanced age.

KT Taping

Originally designed by a chiropractor, a kinesiology technique tape, or the “KT-Tape,” is a flexible elastic tape that is applied strategically by your doctor. KT Taping is a form of treatment where your doctor applies tape to targeted areas of your body to help reduce swelling to bruised and swollen areas, while providing structural muscle support and pain relief. It is also beneficial to helping you remain active while recovering from injuries.
