Home Back Traction

Best Price

The Home Back Traction provides a unique pumping action to help alleviate back muscle and joint stiffness, improving segmental motion, increasing and helping to restore normal disc function. It works to help reduce some of the causes of pain from compression, poor posture and the degenerative effects of osteoarthritis.

This is a special therapeutic traction device that you can use at home. We only use the authentic Posture Pump® Disc Hydrator® Elliptical Back Rocker™ Model 2000 with years of research and results. Two hand controlled inflation pumps control the action by providing a system which offers a comfortable and progressive method which slowly decompresses the spine through lifting, stretching and separating the joints around the discs.

There are 2 orthopedically designed air bladders which produce a specific angular direction of traction forces which result in lubricating the joints and discs. By the user employing a rocking type motion, the stomach muscle groups are exercised as the joints of the lower back are simultaneously shaped and stretched.

This method of traction helps to restore the normal curve of the lumbar spine, providing a dynamic mechanism for vital nutrients to enter the joints and discs. Designed to reduce or eliminate back pain as well as restore normal segmental function and spine health, often deteriorated from conditions like degeneration of the discs.

As the patient bends to the right, the disc space at L4/L5 (arrow) is aberrantly right shifted, blocking the right bending normal motion. Further note that this common, insidious and rarely identified aberrancy has locked the entire low back region and forced it to the left, finally allowing the bending to occur in the upper part of the spine. How long will this patient’s disc survive the tremendous pressure and forces applied to it when bending to the right?Note that after only one 20 minute session with the device, the L-4/L-5 disc space is now properly left shifted and the disc above is also properly aligned and hydrated. The lower back is now free to bend right and the motion has been restored allowing proper nutrient absorption, returning the back and joints to a healthy position and unlocking the joint.

The home back traction fits under your back in four positions to bring relief to specific problem areas. Two pressurized air bladders lift and relieve in opposite directions, decompressing and aligning your joints. As air pressure lifts and lowers your spine, nutrient rich fluids are drawn into the discs, promoting healthy, well lubricated joints.

Benefits Of The Home Back Traction Device

A healthy back with its proper curve and thick discs is freely moving and constantly bathed in nutrient rich fluids. Lubrication keeps the back young and flexible. An abnormal back has lost its natural, healthy lumbar spine curve. Weight loading shifts forward, applying abnormal pressure on the soft discs, compressing and dehydrating these important spinal elements. This forces disc material to bulge back toward the spinal cord and nerves. Joints dry up and become stiff and eventually decay and degenerate. Discs can also become locked or trapped to one side causing stiff, uneven bending, leading to further disc damage and arthritis or degenerative disc disease.

Poor posture or forward curve loss of the lower back can come from a variety of causes. Sometimes its an obvious cause like trauma from a fall or accident. Often, its the day to day wear and tear and poor positioning that breaks down a health back, like long hours of prolonged sitting. Catching poor posture early is the best defense against stiffness, early aging and poor health. Don’t let your back wear out before you do! Be flexible and feel younger!

The home back traction unit produces an angle of lift that separated joints by gently inducing a negative pressure in the disc, which absorbs fluids as well as increasing mobility of the joints. The natural shaping of the lumbar spine is restored, along with increasing nutrients vital to normal disc function while the sensitive nerve tissues are afforded relief from irritating compression. This occurs with a safe range of traction force using only 8 pounds of gentle pressure!

prevent back arthritis

Since the spine is made of movable bones that house the central nervous system (spinal cord) and allows us freedom of movement, degeneration here may lead to a lifetime of progressing pain and stiffness. When the lower back deviates from its proper curve, the joint-disc complex looses normal functional mobility and compression of these structures occurs. When joints lock or misalign, the stage is set for degeneration of these structures which is difficult and sometimes impossible to reverse. This is a great solution, so start early!

Using the Home Back Traction

Notes: Placing a cold gel pack over the air cells is recommended to speed recovery from initial stiffness and discomfort. Always cover gel packs with cloth; never place gel pack directly against skin. Just like performing a new exercise, it can temporarily make you sore. To reduce this, inflate to lower levels and keep sessions under 10 minutes for the first two weeks. This will allow your body to gradually adapt to a more aggressive back traction session.

Is This The Best Home Back Traction Device For Me?

This is one of the best ways to help restore the curve and help prevent the progression of arthritis and disc degeneration. You take an active role in this therapy and that is why it is called a spine trainer. This is not something you just lie down on and relax.

That being said, if you have higher levels of degeneration or an active, symptomatic disc herniation, the home back traction is not for you. For symptomatic relief, a more linear type of held traction force is better. At higher levels of degeneration, the discs and joints do not move in predictable ways, therefore, the benefits of this type of therapy decrease. For higher levels of pain, you will not be able to perform the necessary motions to get the proper benefits.

So, if you have general back pain with some degeneration and you want some relief and to help restore and prevent further problems, this is a great home back traction unit. The action of the device and your motions on it provide an active means to relieve and restore function. It is concentrated therapy and can be used for the lumbar and thoracic spine.
