When coupled with the natural reduction of the spinal compression due to the effect of gravity, this revolutionary, patented Facet Releae Table allows for the correction of numerous spinal conditions including but not limited to the following:
Facet Syndrome/Degenerative Joint Disease: A prone lying patient may be flexed to allow for facet distraction and decompression resulting in capsular rehydration and decreased facet irritation and pressure.
Sprain/Strain Conditions: A gentle, modest flexion of the spine along with the modality of your choice can easily alleviate the discomfort associated with thoracic, thoracolumbar, and/or lumbar sprain/strain disorders.
Osteoporotic Conditions: Positioning the osteoporotic individual either supine or prone depending upon their spinal condition, the practitioner is able to gently and easily locate and repostion the spinal subluxation(s).
Psoas Syndrome: A psoas release can be simply accomplished with gentle extension of the thoracolumbar spine while the patient is positional supine on the Facet Release Table.
Discogenic Conditions: The patient may be positioned either supine or prone depending upon the area of disc compromise, the felxion of the table will enable an altered disc angle allowing for the reduced disc pressure.
Scoliosis: Gentle vertebral release and muscular stretch is possible with the prone patient flexed on the Facet Release Table. This position assists the practitioner in his/her efforts to reduce spinal curvature.
Piriformis Syndrome: The practitioner is able to stretch the piriformis muscle by simply flexing the leg at the hip and allowing gravity to adduct the thigh while the patient is in the lateral recumbent postion with the table flexed.
Sciatica: This condition may be relieved by placing the patient in the supine position for discogenic conditions resulting in sciatica. Place the patient in the prone position for the facet related disorders to decrease the pressure upon the nerve roots thereby alleviating sciatic symptoms.
Degenerative Disc Disease: A supine positioned patient flexed by the Facet Release Table may experience comfortable extension creating increased disc angle and decreased disc pressure.
Stretching Muscle Groups: Effectively stretch muscle groups such as: abdominal, illiopsoas, quadriceps, quadratus lumborum, paraspinals, gluteals, piriformis and hamstrings.
Rib Subluxations: Adjust posterior rib subluxations while the patient is in a flexed prone position and conversely place the patient in a supine extended position to address anterior rib malpositions.
