Meditrac’s Vertetrac spinal decompression device is designed to decompress the spine, put it under spinal traction, while the patient walks at a comfortable rate. It is an innovative method, developed to treat a number of spinal injuries and disorders, including: lower back pain, sport injuries, herniated (slipped) discs, sciatica, bulging discs, lumbago and even idiopathic scoliosis (by adding the Dynamic Brace System (DBS) Scoliosis Rail attachment to the Vertetrac).
Because the Vertetrac spinal traction device affords vertical, horizontal, symmetrical and asymmetrical traction, it actually performs better than traditional decompression methods such as body braces and 2D decompression traction tables. The other reason why the Vertetrac spinal decompression device performs better than traditional traction tables is because the decompression is implemented whilst the patient is in motion, and in 3D – in the vertical and horizontal dimensions over time.
We recommend that the patient walks at a comfortable rate, either on or off a treadmill, while wearing the Vertetrac. This method accelerates the healing process and return to quality of life, not to mention the significant reduction in pain, even after a single treatment of 20 minutes.
