Back pain reliefs / prevention

The human spine is constantly under pressure. While stretching the back from side to side may provide minimal pain relief, it does not release disc pressure; a common source of chronic lower back pain. An increase in spinal disc pressure, coupled with the common activities of modern life, can hasten the onset of chronic back conditions.

How the spine works
Intervertebral discs, the 'shock absorbers' of the spine contain within them water and molecules of a 'gel like' substance called glycosaminoglycans ('GAG').  The GAGs have the property of absorbing water when under pressure, and expelling it when pressure is relieved.

Causes of back suffering
Unfortunately immobilisation, injury, lack of use and old age lead to a gradual decrease in our GAGs, which in turn leads to a parallel loss in water content.  If daily 'wear & tear' finally become greater than the recuperative abilities of our spinal maintenance system, our backs will feel progressively 'older' and more 'stiff'.

The Nubax® solution
One of the ways to increase water content in the discs is to stretch the spine. In doing so, pressure is relieved from the GAG’s which allows the flow of water in around the spinal system to increase, which in turn allows mobility and the recuperative capabilities of the spine to also increase.

By utilizing Nubax® Trio’s unique lever action, you will be able to provide your back with support and relief, wherever and whenever you wish. The Nubax® Trio’s design enables the device to be easily transported or conveniently packed away for storage when not in use.

The Nubax® Trio offers a sustained form of static traction, which is extremely effective, yet gentle when compared to other forms of intermittent traction. Traction applied as a “one off” or at infrequent intervals, yields little benefit to the user.

When using the Nubax® Trio, your shoulders and hips are held square to the spinal column, allowing traction to be applied safely and efficiently to your spine.

Prevention

The almost constant pressure experienced by our spine compresses our discs.  This, magnified by the many daily activities of modern life can eventually lead to back pain, immobility and a reduced quality of life.

How the spine works:

Intervertebral discs, the 'shock absorbers' of the spine contain within them water and molecules of a 'gel like' substance called glycosaminoglycans ('GAG').  The GAGs have the property of absorbing water when under pressure, and expelling it when pressure is relieved.

Causes of back suffering:

Unfortunately immobilisation, injury, lack of use and old age lead to a gradual decrease in our GAGs, which in turn leads to a parallel loss in water content.  If daily 'wear & tear' finally become greater than the recuperative abilities of our spinal maintenance system, our backs will feel progressively 'older' and more 'stiff'.

Solution:

One way to increase the water content in the disc is to 'stretch' the spine.  By removing pressure from the GAGs and releasing water into the system, it is possible to maximise the recuperative and mobile properties of a person's spine.

Preventative measures through Nubax

Sleeping puts the least amount of pressure on the spine in relation to a normal day of work or recreation. Therefore, the ideal time to apply a reduction in pressure on the spinal column is just before going to bed so that the spine receives the maximum amount of pressure relief, together with the natural recuperative processes that occur during a good nights sleep.

The Nubax® Trio was designed with ease of use, effectiveness and affordability at heart. By using the Nubax® Trio regularly you can aid recovery, prevent reoccurrence and help maintain the overall health of your spine and lower back.
