Pros

  • Great Customer Satisfaction

    Customers have nothing but good things to say about the Lo-Bak Trax. Many of the testimonials not only on the website but on other review sites mention their regular back pain. They mention their inability to complete daily tasks like sleeping, but with their first use they saw immediate results. Customers have also mentioned that they traditionally had upwards of 10 level pain on a scale of 1 to 10, but after using the Trax went down to 1 or 2. Others compliment how it has reduced pain, improved flexibility, and made the body stronger.

  • Fda Approved

    Lo-Bak Trax was made to treat back pain and has been listed by the FDA as a medical device. It has been officially cleared by the FDA to treat things like sciatica, muscle spasms, spine degenerative joint diseases, back pain, spinal curvature, herniated disc, and more.

  • Lightweight and Portable

    The Trax weighs less than 4 pounds so it can be easily portable and kept in a suitcase if you are traveling, in a cubicle at work, or next to your bed. It has padding for extra comfort.

  • Quality Guarantee

    The Trax is marketed as a medical device meant to last a lifetime, something that you work into your regular daily regimen. If it breaks during normal use, a replacement can be made upon contact with the customer service department. You are responsible for shipping the broken device back to the headquarters before they will send a replacement. The company will, however, send a replacement at their shipping cost if the issue is a defect.

  • Return Policy

    If you are not satisfied with the purchase for any reason, within 90 days of the purchase, you can return it for a full refund of the original price, minus shipping costs. You are responsible for the shipping and handling charges not just from the first purchase but for returning the medical device. The device has to be returned in the original box, with the instruction manual, the dvd, and no damage to any of the parts. If it does not meet with this criteria, then the refund is not issued but they will return the device to you at their shipping expense. However, this refund policy does not apply to trial offers, special offers, or discounted items.

Critical Advice

Remember that you should store the original purchase number and a receipt for your purchase somewhere safe in addition to the original box. This is important because you will need the box for a refund. You will need the purchase number and receipt for special offer refunds or returns, and the purchase number for a replacement should your product break at some point during the course of normal use. As long as you keep all of this in a safe place, you should be able to work with customer service at any point.

How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Lie Down

    Many people who have back pain are in pain most of the time, but when they lie down that pain dissipates. The reason for this is that lying down takes pressure off of the spine, which allows the muscles to relax and remain comfortable. So the first step in using the Lo-Bak Trax is to assume that position.

  2. Pull Your Feet up

    The second thing you must do with the medical device is pull your feet up. This causes the curve in your lower back to naturally flatten. When the curve naturally flattens, it requires less force to stretch or traction your spine.

  3. Push

    The final step is to push. Pushing is an easier process than pulling. With the Lo-Bak Trax you have a natural lever which creates a mechanical advantage in this area. This helps with traction for the spine and discs. It is an easier way to get spinal traction at home comfortably. Breathe normally during use and allow the body to rest for two minutes before you get up after use. This will help to avoid spasm.

How It Works

Lo-Bak Trax works by stretching the soft tissues around the spine which are supposed to support the spine. These tissues are not normally stretched like this, so those who use Lo-Bak Trax for the first time will experience a bit of soreness. Just like any medical program, it is recommended by the company that users begin slowly, not pushing too hard or holding the stretch for too long when they are first beginning. It will take three weeks, on average to become acclimated to the stretches. There will be traction in the mid back area and not the lower back area at the start for many consumers, even though it is meant to target the lower back primarily. With regular use the soft tissues stretch and relax, making traction throughout the lower spine much easier.

How it's Different from Competitors

Traditionally, users who want spinal traction have to visit an office where they get strapped down to a table by the ankles and then turned upside to stretch out the spine. Said device seems to mimic medieval torture devices that pulled the body apart, and in some ways it is meant to. That idea of stretching is what creates traction and alleviates the pain that regularly hunching over and sitting down creates.

The lower back has a natural curve in the spine which is called the lumbar lordosis. This area of the back absorbs most of the shock during the day. Lying down to traction this area of the back means the curve needs greater force in order to separate the spine from the soft tissues and muscles around it. For this reason traction devices like this one need more force in order to get the spinal traction you desire.

Going to a doctor to be turned upside down on a table is not ideal when you have low back pain or when your low back is in spasm. Cost effective does not apply here. However, simple biomechanical changes in your posture with this product achieve the traction force necessary to provide pain relief. Using a particularly unique design, this product is unlike any other. In addition to all that, it also gives you complete control on how direct the traction force is, so you can adjust the pressure according to your needs. Doing so is much easier with this device compared to lying on a table and trying to stop a motor or turn a crank.

Features

  • Lo-bak Trax

    Lo-Bak Trax is a new portable spinal traction device that is designed to help alleviate back pain and pressure. It is FDA cleared for relieving spinal degenerative disk disease, herniated disks, muscle spasms, spinal stenosis, lower back and sciatica pain and tension.

    You simply lay down flat on the floor. Raise your knees up and then use Lo-Bak Trax to press down evenly on both of your thighs.

    This pushes your lower body towards your feet and the metal handles push your upper towards your head. The dual traction of the devices decompresses or "tractions" your spine and immediately relieves pressure, tension and pain.

  • Ergonomic Design

    Lo-Bak Trax has an ergonomic design that evenly distributes dual traction force that stretches and decompresses your spine and disks. This in turn, relieves the pressure that could be causing your back pain.

  • Easy to Use

Save Money

Warnings

  • Not a Doctor

    While there is no harm in trying Lo-Bak Trax to help get rid of your back pain, it does not replace the care of a doctor or other medical practitioner.

Great Product!

I purchased my Lobaktrax from Showcase for CAD$20 yesterday. I have used it twice and have already noticed a reduction in my pain. Can I use it more than once a day? I hope it continues to improve my pain as I use it longer.

Good Product But There are Alternatives

The Lo-bak Trax is a fine therapy device that actually works quite well if you follow their directions. There are additional exercises that are often recommended by physical therapists that can accompany the TRAX. Knees to Chest, and Bicycle Pumps often will help strengthen the core muscles and relieve lower back pain. There is an alternative device that is much simpler and assists in traction and the above additional exercises, it is called the LUM-BAR. It is much lighter (under 2 pounds), more portable, has fewer parts, is lower in cost, designed to last a lifetime, and has its exercise program on its website. Check it out at: lovemylumbar.com. P. S. You should always consult with your doctor or physical therapist before using any traction device such as the LUM-BAR or Lo-bak Trax.

Lo-Bak Traxx

I just bought this device at Wal-Mart for $20. And it's worth every penny. I had knee surgery in Nov. 2017 and have had sciatic nerve pain ever since. My Dr. Proscribed Gabapentin for my nerve pain and it's helped a lot but the sciatica was still very painful. I've used this product for 3 days and am amazed at how well it works. I highly recommend Lo-bak Traxx!

Herniated Disc l5 Vertebrae/sciatic Nerve Pain

I was in er 6 times last year with horrific sciatic nerve pain, in and out of the hospital several times, and in a nursing home for physical therapy for a total of 7 weeks. I bought a "lo-bak trak" and a "soft touch lumbar stretcher" just a day before I went into er the first time, so I have never been able to use them because I was diagnosed with a herniated disc l5 vertebrae. I went online and sent a message to lo-bak trak two weeks ago asking if they would accept it for a return and they have not responded. 855 / 721-3343.

Spondylolisthesis

Question: I have spondylolisthesis in lumbar 4 / 5 ( degenerative disc disease ). Is this safe and will it help? I would love to just be able to walk more, but the pain requires me to sit after about 5 minutes.

You should check with your hip surgeon before trying anything. Are you doing pt at all? I had my ( left ) hip replaced in March 2017. I have lower back pain now too. Muscle aches more than joint or spine pain. I've been told it's due to the muscles having been used improperly before my surgery. It will dissipate with time but it's not fast enough for me. I would hold off on using this or any device that your doctor has not approved first.

I Love This Product

I have had Sciatica pain for 2 years and tried various exercises and nothing was working.
I had the Lo-bak Trax for one week and I can't believe what a positive difference it has May.
If you have back pain you need to try this product.
It is important you follow the instructions.
