Why Lift?

  1. The most common cause of lower back pain of mechanical origin with or without referred pain is an acute disc protrusion (stretching of the peripheral disc fibers).1
  2. Flexion- Distraction comparison with active exercise (Physical Therapy) for lower back pain. Flexion -Distraction Protocols proved more effective at relieving pain, especially in long term follow-up. (2 years)2
  3. The primary pathway for nutritional supply to IVD (disc) cells is through the passive diffusion from the richly vascularized vertebral body marrow through the cartilage endplate.3

Lift reproduces the Flexion-Distraction protocol for the convenience of the clinician to employ as unattended enhancement of his regular treatment as well as increased revenue by way of scaled traction therapy, and also for the patient to reinforce his therapy at home and provide long term relief.

How it Works

Therapeutic motion to simultaneously open and lift disc apart to allow increased supply of oxygenated blood flow. This reduces pressure on the nerves and increased flexibility of disc.
