The Back Traction Belt is actually a spinal decompression belt for the lower back. The distinctive and inventive style and design of this traction belt provides continual pain relief for active people which permits the independence in order to maintain a productive life-style.
The functionality involving the Back Traction Belt is based on scientific principles, accurate application as well as uncomplicated use. Back traction is generated when the belt is inflated. The air cell extension reduces loading pressure in the lower back expanding the disc by means of securing beneath the rib cage and above the pelvis, stretching out the lower back in an up and down direction, redirecting weight bearing force and decreasing the force inside the lower back area, which may substantially lessen back pain from compressive forces.
1) Air Nozzle permits connecting to the air pump. Turn nozzle counter-clockwise about two turns which deflates the traction belt.
2) To protect the skin, a 100 percent cotton liner is used. A medical grade magnet of 1600 gauss provides additional pain relief.
3) A secure additional belt provides adjusting with just one touch.
4) Panel insert for increased traction force – 500 model
5) The Air Pump is included along with the brace – a complete package!
A special function which makes the Traction Belt the best available will be the removable anterior and posterior firm panels on the 500 model which are created specifically for the individual needing additional stabilizing, particularly for individuals both before and after surgical treatment. Additionally, it is a great solution for those that can’t withstand an inflexible body jacket but require a strong supporting device.

The Back Traction Belt changes along with improvement simply by taking away the easily removed firm panels on the 500 model in order to easily transform to a gentle support belt intended for better overall flexibility. Traction offers encouraging benefits as well as helpful management involving all kinds of disc problems as well as spine injuries. With well over two million individuals and doctors presently employing this specific technology, we have been privileged to help people needing improved quality lifestyle.
Before Therapy: The discs are strained due to loading of structures from gravitational forces causing a herniated or bulging disc which may compress sensitive nerves triggering back pain, referred pain or numbness down the leg along with muscular spasms. This is sometimes called sciatica
After Therapy: The Back Traction Belt provides forces that return the disc to a more normal height by reducing harmful downward pressure, removing irritation from muscles, discs and joints by means of the expanding cells filled with air inside the belt.
The back traction belt can provide relief for those who must do heavy lifting on the job or at home as well as those who need relief for short or long distance driving.
Back Traction Belt May Help:
- Herniated Lumbar Disc
- Back Joint Sprain
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Lumbar Fusion Surgery
- Compression Fractures
- Lower Back Pain
- Muscle Strain
Traction Belt will expand about 2.8 inches, raising the disc space
Back Traction Belt For Herniated Disc
A disc can bulge when the soft, inner part called the nucleus partially pushes out and a herniation pushes further out. Both can cause back pain by pinching a nerve and some may even push out into the spinal canal, which holds the spinal cord
The Back Traction Belt can help those with bulging or herniated discs because it decreases weight bearing stress on the disc. As the belt inflates, it decompresses the disc resulting in less bulging or herniating, minimizing additional damage to the disc. The traction belt provides an increase in the height of the disc, allowing more room for sensitive nerves. Traction will help to increase hydration of discs and encourage nutrients to be absorbed into the disc, increasing disc health. This helps to reverse the process of degenerative disc disease or osteoarthritis of the lumbar spine.
Back Traction Belt For Lumbar Sprain/Strain
A back sprain involves injury by stretching or tearing of the tendons an/or ligaments. A back strain involves damage by overstretching or tearing the muscles. Initially, rest is indicated as the injury needs to heal from inflammation. Traction should not be used for recent injuries, however, the Back Traction Belt can be helpful after the initial stage of healing and for chronic sprain/strain conditions, which can often result from postural stress.
Back Traction Belt For Spondylosis & Spondylolisthesis
Spondylosis in the cervical and lumbar spine is a medical term for osteoarthritis, which can form painful arthritic bone spurs around the disc, trying to stabilize a degenerating condition. The back traction belt can help reduce weight bearing stress that may alleviate pressure.
Spondylolisthesis describes a condition where there is a disconnection or failure to unite between the front and back part of a spinal bone. The front part of the bone can slip forward, causing pressure on the nerves and can cause a sway back or increase in the curve of the lumbar spine called hyperlordosis. This increases pain from this instability, especially when standing or sitting for long periods. The traction belt reduces stress from weight bearing in the lumbar spine, helping to reduce the hyperlordosis and spondylolisthesis, increasing stability and alleviating discomfort & pain.
Back Belt For Irritated Joints
The joints in the lower back are called facet joints and help with a gliding motion of the back. Each back bone has 4 of these facet joints, which are behind the discs. These facet joints are near the nerves and changes in these joints from arthritis can cause pain from inflammation and can place pressure on the nerves. The traction belt can help reduce pressure on the joints, relieving pain, helping to heal injured joints, allowing better motion and helping to prevent further damage.
How Long Should I Wear The Back Traction Belt?
For maximizing therapeutic benefits, it is recommended to wear the belt for about 4 to 6 hours a day or as prescribed by your health care professional. Benefits are usually noted after wearing the belt for a few days. Some individuals will need to wear the belt for longer periods in order to achieve maximum symptom relief.
As with non traction back belts, extended use may cause some weakness to the muscles supporting the back and the abdominal muscles. However, use of the back traction belt can help increase physical activity, minimizing any dependency. It is recommended to begin exercising the back muscles as soon as possible to make sure the muscles are not weakened.

Go on to inflate your back traction belt till the pressure gauge goes in to the green-orange locations (ten – fourteen pounds per square inch). Warning: Don’t let the needle to go beyond to the red-colored part of the pressure gauge. Doing this can break the belt.
