So over here, this is what our setup looks like we have a patiently down on their back their face up, we have these two arms to help pull into the lumbar. And we can even pull into the neck curve for people that need additional correction in their spine, all at the same time. So this setup right here involves straps, and ropes, that will help pull and accentuate curvatures into different areas of the spine. So we have one for the neck here. And we’re looking for just a little bit of pressure, nothing past a little bit of mild discomfort to help traction the spine into the areas that we need to and we can even do the lumbar spine and the low back at the same time. So what we’re doing here is we’re tightening up until a patient feels a certain amount of pressure. That good they’re in their spine. So these straps are going to help support these parts of the spine to accentuate degrees of curvature, opening up the disk spaces and helping correct the spine long term. Now you can see here that we can isolate specific areas of the spine depending on where these misalignments are using these straps and using these levers to help pull and fight against gravity. This is a great thing for things like low back pain, sciatica, pain and cramping into the feet. Digestive difficulties. Once we restore the proper function of the spine and the nervous system, it can help regain our strength and vitality in those vital organs where those nerves go. It can help with things like headaches and neck pain, and we can do it all at the same time getting the spine into its perfect position for optimal function.
