BACK ON TRAC™ IS AUTOMATED LUMBAR MECHANICAL TRACTION WITH UNILATERAL AND BILATERAL FLEXION PERFORMED IN UNISON

Patient Friendly

  • BACK ON TRAC™is a Lumbar mechanical traction device
  • The ergonomically correct chair design allows the patient to comfortably start from a seated position
  • With the press of a button, BACK ON TRAC™ safely moves the patient into supine position with their pelvis and knees in the correct position for the session
  • BACK ON TRAC™ has no cumbersome restraints allowing for a very comfortable, relaxing therapy session

GOALS OF LUMBAR MECHANICAL TRACTION

Effects of Lumbar Mechanical Traction

  • Vertebra Separation, which may decrease intradiscal pressure and reduce bulging of nuclear material and may reduce bulging of nuclear material, and may enhance osmosis from vertebral endplates, increasing fluid/blood supply to discs.

  • Separation and gliding of the facet joints, establishing potential for the improved alignment, articulation, and joint mobility.

  • Tensing, if not stretching of the system of spinal ligaments.

  • Widening of vertebral foramina, allowing increased space for spinal nerve roots.

  • Straightening of spinal curves

  • Stretching of the spinal musculature, potentially decreasing its sensitivity to stretch and therefore decreasing muscle spasms/guarding. It is also possible that this stretch may improve blood supply to posterior soft tissues.

Indications for Lumbar Mechanical Traction

  • Spinal nerve root impingement:

  • Bulging and Herniated disc

  • Ligament encroachment

  • Narrowing of the intervertebral foramen

  • Osteophyte encroachment

  • Spinal nerve root swelling

  • Spondylolisthesis

  • Joint hypomobility

  • Degenerative joint disease

  • Extrinsic muscle spasm and muscle guarding

  • Discogenic pain

  • Joint pain

  • Compression fracture


  •  

Contraindications for Lumbar Mechanical Traction

  • Acute joint sprains, strains and inflammation

  • Spinal instability and general joint hyper mobility

  • Spinal Acute Fractures

  • Spinal Cancer

  • Pregnancy

  • Osteoporosis

  • Hiatal hernia

  • Bilateral neurological signs – may indicate a cord compromise


  •  

Massage Therapy

  • Easily controlled with the remote

  • 10 vibrators located upper body, lumbar, hip and thigh regions

  • Can be easily manipulated to provide massage therapy limiting the massage to specific areas of the body

  • Can be operated without massage therapy if preferred


  •  

Heat Therapy

  • Controlled with the remote

  • Heat therapy is located in the Lumbar region

  • Can be operated without Heat if preferred


  •  

Emergency Stop Feature

  • At any time during the session the Emergency Stop Feature can be enabled and the session will end immediately returning the patient to the seated position
