Vertetrac 3D traction-on-the-move to treat lower back pain
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.
Case Study – 47 year old female suffering from sciatica
A 47 year old female suffering from acute lower back pain, severe sciatica on the left side with neurological signs, severe left neural foraminal herniation of the disc (red arrow above) causing stenosis with mild spinal cord pressure.
Treated included two weeks of daily treatments followed by two months of treatments every other day.
Following the treatment the patient showed no signs of pain, sciatica nor any neurological signs. The MRI showed no disc herniation with mild edema of the left root but without spinal cord pressure.

- Idiopathic scoliosis (juvenile, adolescent or adult) click here for more information regarding the DBS Scoliosis Rail attachment to extend treatment possibilities.
Contra-Indications for use:
- Cauda equina syndrome
- Pott’s Disease and all infective or inflammatory diseases of the vertebrae
- Cardiac or circulatory disease and severe respiratory problems
- Contusions and stretching injuries of the lower back (damage of muscles, tendons, vessels, and nerves can be aggravated by traction)
- Post-operative patients within 3 months of back surgery
- Vertebral fracture within 6 months of initial injury
- Fusion with internal fixation
- After the 4th month of pregnancy
Your patients will thank you for rapidly reducing their pain and accelerating their healing process so they can return to the activities that matter to them.
Because the devices are relatively small and easy to use, professionals can increase their income by treating more patients without having to recruit additional staff.
The Vertetrac spinal decompression device can be sold to chronic patients for self-administration.
