Tests were carried out on 50 patients with the collaboration of Dr.D.Troup, Director of Spinal Research at the Royal Free hospital, London. 50 outpatients, within the period of 3 months between January - March 2004 in The Luklinski Spine Clinic, London. The Back Rack consists of 16 wooden spindles with a frame like spine. Patients were asked to use equipment as instructed 3x per week for the 3 month period:
Lumbar spine = increased abdominal pressure / sustained trunk up - 3 sec.
The Back Rack will apply stretching and over-pressure, the symptoms will typically improve rapidly. Passive movements are made easier, lying down compression is 25% of that of standing = SPINE. To elicit back pain PASSIVE - ACTIVE of motion must be activated.
Pain only - 10 / severe disabling symptoms - spasm
