It is well known that spinal decompression therapy has long been an accepted form of mechanical treatment of disc disorders, but until relatively recently, the results of the treatment have been unsatisfactory. From the studies of the Institute for the Treatment of Spinal Disorders, it is concluded that those disc disorders which are of mechanical nature can only be successfully treated using mechanical methods, and spinal decompression therapy proved to be the best option.
Furthermore, we found that the poor results previously obtained in treatment using traction relate to poor technique, and not to the concept of traction itself. Previous forms and techniques of traction simply failed to provide enough vertical + horizontal traction to relieve compression on the intervertebral discs. The conclusion leads us to the concept of 3 dimensional forces.
Over 10,000 low back pain sufferers ( 56% men and 44% women between the ages of 17-79) have been treated at The Institute for Treatment of Spinal Disorders in Tel Aviv, Wooridul Hospital Spine Laser Clinic in Seoul, Korea, and other back institutes. The success rates of 85%-90% during these spinal decompression therapy sessions have never been seen in any other form of treatment of herniated discs. Also no harmful or negative side effects have ever been observed as a result of treatment with the Vertetrac during testing and subsequent patient use.
