    Major problem / Symptomatic Areas

    Lumbar, Spine - Posterior

    Best back stretching device?

    Physical Agents In Rehabilitation
    Hi,

    I hope this is in the right section it's to do with my back/spine which is relating to chiropractic which can relate to orthopaedic. I have a problem with my spine but it's mainly the lower part this affects my hips and as a result it is painful to run jump and I can't stand for long, it's especially painful in my right hip and I have balance problems. This has been due to activity in sport and I have had this problem for a long time but since 2012 I've really started researching and have significant but slow success in improving my condition.

    I have decided buying some equipment to help with my back problems and I would like some advice. I know there are inversion tables, this seems to be a bad idea because I have gastritis and I think hanging upside down could be bad for it, also it has been stated it's not that good for the lower back which is the main problem. I have identified some equipment which could be good:

    True Back Traction device
    Nubax Trio
    Teeter Hang Up Spinal Stretch
    Stamina In-Line Back Stretch Bench
    Saunders Lumbar Traction Device


    True Back traction device - Well I've heard good things about it and it seem's really affordable but is it a case of you get what you pay for and will paying for something more expensive be better?

    Nubax Trio - This could be a problem because I have to lean forward on my knees could be a problem for my right hip depending on how I do it or if it's for too long.

    Teeter Hang Up Spinal Stretch - I've heard if you're tall it's a problem. So there's that.

    Stamina In-Line Back Stretch Bench - Looks good but it seems in order to get the stretch working you have to pull the lever at an awkward angle. My right shoulder is a bit dodgey I have small problems with upper spine but not that bad.

    Saunders Lumbar Traction Device - This is actually the one I really want to get. It sounds really good and can apply 200lbs of stretching force. The problem is this they say that if I'm not careful that I could potentially hurt myself and that I should consult my phsycian. Well In the UK we have a GP not sure what they could tell me because they dont specialise in that area I guess I could book an appointment with a physio or a chiropractor, that's more money I have to spend and the device is really expensive.

    What are your thoughts on this?
