I'm 66 and have had severe lumbar degeneration for 10+ years. I've had one operation, and two ortho docs have told me that my lumbar spine is too unstable to perform any further operations. I have received epidural injections for several years with 100-50% relief. I have also taken numerous pain meds for years. My life has revolved around my spinal disorder/pain.
Then this past weekend I was visiting a dear friend who had a Lo-Bak TRAX and suggested I give it a try. Being very skeptical after years of PT, I thought the Lo-Bax TRAX looked too simple to be effective. But for my friend I gave it a go. I could actually feel a slight stretch in my lumbar. I tried it later that evening and again the next morning. Each time a light stretch could be felt. On the third try, my right leg actually felt warmth flow down thru it. I've had traction before in PT and know that it was a good sign.
I went home and bought myself a Lo-Bak TRAX! I realize that four uses are too soon for most to believe I could feel a positive difference, but I do. My legs are weak and I usually use a cane or walk humped over a store carriage. My right leg, which happens to be my worse leg, actually feels stronger. How this is possible so soon, I don't know. I don't care. I am just delighted to feel relief.
I am going to tell everyone I know who has low back pain about Lo-Bak TRAX. That's my story.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
