Stretching was the first treatment used for back pain relief. Various stretching machines that perform back traction, and spinal decompression are used today in most clinics to treat back pain. They work!
The demand for a stretching device that could be used at home was first filled by inversion therapy tables and marketed to the general public beginning in the late 1970’s. These machines hang you by your ankles inverted. Hanging by your ankles can be uncomfortable and since ankles, knees and hips work on compression, the gravitational pull on these joints while hanging is the wrong way.
In the early 1980’s The Back Bubble, back pain relief machine, was designed. The Back Bubble was not sold to the general public but instead used as back traction in physical therapy clinics. The Back Bubble worked so quickly at providing back pain relief that it stayed in the clinics. After all, patients with back pain would continue to return to the clinics and pay for this simple treatment that took their pain away.
The Physical Therapists recognized that The Back Bubble was very unique. Instead of belts and straps normally used with back traction devices, The Back Bubble combined an inflatable body harness with a floatation spring. This gave the user a super comfortable, floating feeling while being suspended in air-cushioned weightlessness. Also there was no need to be suspended by the ankles and you could hang upright, or inverted, and stretch the spine in all different directions making spinal adjustments easy.
It was years later that we decided to go directly to the back pain sufferer. Today we give our customers an adjustable bar, removable from small brackets mounted on any door frame, to hang The Back Bubble. (Many of our customers just put a heavy duty hook in a beam to suspend The Back Bubble.)
If you are paying for costly spinal decompression treatments, for the cost of a couple of these treatments you can now own spinal decompression at home with The Back Bubble.
There truly is no need to suffer any more!
