Does This Machine Actually Relieve Sciatica?

AnonymousUserAAnonymousUser Posts: 49,671
I have suffered with Sciatica for a couple years now and I ran across this CPM machine while surfing the net... I was wondering if anyone has tried it out or if you think it might work for me... I really don't want to have surgery
so I am looking for other options... Here is the link... http://backpaingo.com


  • The machine uses traction, one of the more well known forms of treatment for Sciatica. It's fairly effective at treating Sciatica for some people. It doesn't work for everybody though, and if I were you I'd bring it up with either a doctor/chiro/physical therapist before thinking about purchasing the machine they're showing. Traction has been shown to work, but manual traction with a professional is probably more effective. Most physical therapists/chiropractors are well studied in the use of traction.

    I feel like a commercial, but ask your doctor if traction is right for you. :)

    do not provide a patient with any new treatment that already exists AND you do not have to pay those types of prices.

    One of the first was the DRX9000. Talking with doctors and physical therapists, they all have the same word, ts just a beefed up traction unit. A reputable Physical Therapy center can provide similar functions

    So far, I have not seen anything on the Internet or Papers that provide what they say.
    If there was such a simple process, it would have been developed and designed by doctors and released
