Vertetrac clinical information page. Vertetrac treatment purposefully enrols the patient into moving whilst donning the equipment. Why? Well quite simply because research demonstrates that the transfer of fluid is essential for the normal biomechanics of the disc and is only possible when the spine is in motion.
The traction decreases intro-discal pressure on the nerve root and dural sac. Disc disorders include muscle spasm and a reduction in the transfer of fluid which in turn accelerates disc degeneration.
So it stands to sense that by combining motion with spinal decompression, which simultaneously decreases pressure, enables fluid exchange, and improves the Range of Motion (ROM) which will in turn afford a rapid recovery and concurrent reduction in pain.
Note: With Meditrac’s device, symmetrical or asymmetrical spinal decompression may be applied as necessary, depending on the patient’s complaint. It can apply force in the x, y, and z dimensions.
