COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS


WHERE TO PLACE THE WAIST BELT?.

Wrap the waist belt tightly above the top of the hips (iliac crest) - this usually

places the center of the belt over the navel.  The red piece of Velcro is to be

moved to fit your waist size.  During traction the waist belt will slide down,

which DOES NOT REDUCE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF SPINAL STRETCH.

Please remember to always keep your knees bent and slowly increase the pull.


WHERE CAN I USE SPINAL STRETCH?

It should only be used on a carpet.  If you have hardwood or tile floors,simply use a

throw rug that has the white rubber anti-slide backing. Many people use a 2' x 3'

throw rug.


HOW OFTEN SHOULD I USE SPINAL STRETCH?

Recommended usage is 15 minutes once or twice a day,depending on your level

of pain.  After the pain has been reduced, you can use it several times a week for

preventive care.


HOW SOON SHOULD I EXPECT RESULTS?

Each person is different and please understand that the vast majority of back

conditions took time to develop; however, many users report improvement within

one to two weeks.


WHEN DO I USE THE CHEST BELT?

We recommend that you begin using SPINAL STRETCH without the chest belt. 

Once you feel comfortable with the pull, you can add the chest belt by placing it

around your chest (above the breast) so that the rubber ridges will be facing the

carpet.


HOW MUCH PULL DOES SPINAL STRETCH PROVIDE?

Tom Storer, Ph.D., a professor at U.C.L.A medical school determined that without

the chest belt you will begin to slide towards the door when the  pull reaches

approximately 40% of your total bodyweight.  With the chest belt you begin sliding

towards the door when the pull reaches approximately 40% of your total body weight.


HOW DO WE KNOW THAT STRETCHING THE LOWER BACK WITH A CONSTANT

PULL OF 30-40% CAN BE VERY EFFECTIVE?

Backed by twenty years of research, 'neurosurgeon of the year' Charles

Burton M.D. found that frequently stretching the lower back over time with a pull of

approximately 25% of one's body weight.

  • Reduced the need for lower back surgery by 70%
  • 95% of the patents reported feeling good to great;
  • Also very successful at treating contained disc herniations and scoliosis

His findings were published in the landmark textbook, MANAGING LOW

BACK PAIN,. Which was edited by the world-renowned spine expert,

William-Kiekaldy-Willis, M.D.
