Central Stenosis

Flexion and traction of the spine will increase the volume of the neural canal. The hope is that arterial blood from the radicular arteries will feed into the cauda equina. The end range position must be held long enough to allow the fluid enough time to shift.

In these procedures, when the pressure is released or when the spine is put into some extension the hope is venous blood and lymph fluid will leave the area.
