The concept behind LumbaCurve combines both East and West therapies, employed in back pain relief therapy. LumbaCurve initially provides a passive gravity assisted traction (PGAT) which gently stretches the lower back, causing the vertebral joints to separate. By doing this it relaxes the discs and frees up the spinal nerves, thus giving drug free back pain relief, as practiced by Western physiotherapists, Chiropractors, and Osteopaths.
The initial design is centred around the concept of PGAT and combining acupressure stimulation. The aim is to provide vertebral separation, allowing spinal decompression, whilst avoiding direct pressure on the spine and sacrum, which would cause pain in the very area where relief was being sought. Additionally, the LumbaCurve design features encompass the combined benefits of shiatsu stimulation, yogic stretch, and acupressure massage, all recognised techniques, used in Traditional Oriental Medicine.
The original LumbaCurve back pain relief products were manufactured from rigid polyurethane foam as reaction injection mouldings, but the new version exhibited at the Back Pain Show, are produced as a rotational moulding in medical grade polyethylene offers a more lightweight and portable option.
LumbaCurve is suitable for adults who experience lower back pain as a result of occupational posture related conditions for example pc users, drivers or recreationally aggravated conditions such as in golfers or gardeners. LumbaCurve is very easy to use, simply lie down, slide LumbaCurve under your lumbar region, follow the instructions, and carry out a few exercises. With minimal time and effort the effects could be amazing.
