What does the vertebral distraction pump really do?
The vertebral distraction pump incorporates the flexion – distraction technique in a hand-held instrument, eliminating the need for awkward, hard to master and expensive tables. The vertebral distraction pump has pre-setting, which eliminates the mistake of opening the posterior elements of the involved vertebrae too much. This can enhance and make the disc lesion worse. The vertebral distraction pump offers tremendous precision and control with each application. A chiropractor can safely separate only the posterior aspects of the involved vertebrae.
