Spine therapy

Back pain affects the majority of the world's population at some point in their lives, and it is the most common reason for a visit to the doctor. A sedentary lifestyle aggravates pain caused by disorders of the muscles and bones of the back.It is important to remember that back pain is only a symptom, not a disease. Its causes, in particular, can be numerous. Back pain can have up to 150 different causes, according to doctors. Mechanical pain accounts for up to 90% of all cases of back pain, while inflammatory pain accounts for one to 5% of all cases of this type of pain.
Adults have 33 vertebrae divided into five regions: 7 cervical, 12 thoracic, 5 lumbar, 5 sacral, and 4 dorsal. The spine is flexible because it is made up of small bones called vertebrae that are connected by resistant discs. The 25 cervical, thoracic, lumbar, and first sacral vertebrae form joints that allow and control the spine's flexibility.The discs withstand varying weight pressure and, as cushions, withstand changes in force transmission during movement and rest.
The pressure on the discs is 100 percent when standing, but it can increase to 250 percent when sitting, so it's easy to see where the back pain comes from after a long period of sitting.
In particular, when sitting, the back and core muscles relax, allowing the spine to "carry" all of the weight of the position. When lying down, the pressure on the discs drops to about 75%, and the lowest pressure that can be achieved is about 25%. To completely eliminate the pressure on the discs, and thus on the spine, the spine must be completely aligned (then the pressure on the discs equals 0), which is accomplished through inverse or antigravity therapy.

Vetebrae UTS

A healing technique that can increase the distance between the vertebral bodies and between the surfaces of the apophyseal joints, widen the intervertebral openings, and stretch the surrounding soft tissues by applying mechanical force. It gained legitimacy in the 1950s, despite being mentioned since Hippocrates' time.
The application technique is carried out in a supine position, with the patient fully clothed, whether he is lying on his stomach or back. The pathology will determine the position of the spine during traction. During this physical therapy, the spine is stretched to relieve pressure on specific parts of the discs that are under load.This improves the body's ability to heal itself by straightening the spine. The traction phase lasts up to 15 minutes, and the patient is completely comfortable throughout. This mat uses the principle of air chambers to gently stretch the spine from the sacral to the cervical region, strengthen the back muscles and ligaments, and improve balance and posture.It creates a stretching effect by inflating and then blowing out its five sections in a different order and speed, reducing tension between the discs by reducing pressure on the spine.
Even a few minutes of spine stretching per week can have a significant impact on our physical and mental health.

Inverse therapy

Inverse or antigravity therapy relieves pressure on the vertebrae and discs completely, lowering the pressure between the discs to zero. Inverse therapy involves placing the patient in a fully inverted position (perpendicular to the floor, head down) or a position at a smaller angle, but still with the head lower than the legs. The spine must be stretched and the body must be straight. The so-called spinal decompression is made in this position, and it is a method of relieving the spine.This procedure gently stretches the spine, relieving pressure in the discs and joints and promoting natural healing of damaged discs.
In inverse therapy, blood flow and nutrient metabolism in the injured area are improved. The negative pressure created by decompression reduces the pressure inside the disc as well as the pressure on the nerves, thereby eliminating pain and dysfunction and allowing the hernia and disc bulging to be pulled back to the appropriate place to relieve pain and "return" the spine to its desired position.
Antigravity therapy reduces gravitational pressure on the spine's discs and nerves while increasing the space between the vertebrae. It is a therapy that stretches the spine to relieve back pain.
