Q. How quickly can I expect to see results?
- A. It depends on each person. However improvements are generally quickly observered, in less than two or three weeks of treatment. In some cases, the pain can disappear completely, whereas in the most difficult situations, pain may reduce slowly over two or three months of treatment.
Q. How safe is Nubax for my back?
- A. Nubax is designed in such a way that it is not possible to damage your spine by spinal traction on this device.We recommend you start slowly and increase the intensity in a very gradual way to minimize the risk of generating discomfort.
- In general, it is not necessary for the intensity to be very large in order to obtain an entirely satisfactory result. The key to success is the frequency of sessions over a sufficiently long period.
Q. If I have osteoporosis, can I use Nubax?
- A. Unless osteoporosis is advanced to a critical level, axial vertebral decompression does not represent a danger to vertebrae with osteoporosis.It has been shown that the application of a force on the bones slows the development of osteoporosis on these bones and increases their resistance.

Nubax and Scoliosis
- What is Scoliosis?
Scoliosis is a permanent deformation of the vertebral column in the three planes of space. It manifests itself by an inclination of the vertebrae on the frontal plane, an inversion of the curves on the sagittal plane, and a rotation on the horizontal plane.This torsion of the column is dangerous, as it may cause deformation of the thorax and surrounding areas. Scoliosis should not be confused with the scoliotic attitude which is the result of poor posture and which is much less serious. It does not involve twisting of the vertebrae or deformation and can be easily corrected.
Idiopathic Scoliosis and Secondary Scoliosis
There are two types of Scoliosis. When the causes of the deformation of the column are unknown, Scoliosis is said to be idiopathic. This form of Scoliosis often appears during childhood or adolescence. Even if its origin remains mysterious, the hereditary factor sometimes comes into play and sometimes several members of the same family are affected.
- This form of Scoliosis is the most common form, accounting for 70-80% of cases of Scoliosis. Secondary Scoliosis has a clearly identified cause. It may be the result of a neuromuscular disease such as poliomyelitis or myopathy, a genetic disease such as Marfan's syndrome, or it may be due to a congenital malformation.
What are the symptoms of Scoliosis?
It is imperative to screen and treat Scoliosis as soon as possible, because the greater the degree of deviation, the more difficult the treatment. The problem is that this deformation of the vertebral column is not always accompanied by pain, and that it can therefore go unnoticed as long as the twist is not too severe.Poor posture, one shoulder slightly higher than the other, or the appearance of a bump on one side of the back when the child leans forward are signs of Scoliosis.An x-ray is necessary to determine where it is located and the angle of the twist.
Who is at risk from Scoliosis?
Although Scoliosis can occur in adulthood, it affects mostly children and adolescents. Girls are more affected than boys, and often have larger column deviations than boys. Adolescence is a period of risk. Before this stage, Scoliosis evolves slowly, but with accelerated growth, deformities can increase more rapidly.
- Early detection is therefore essential to manage Scoliosis as soon as possible.
Treating Scoliosis with Nubax Trio
The treatment of Scoliosis takes place over the long term. Surgery is only necessary when the angle of deformation reaches 35 ° or more.In less serious cases, physiotherapy and the practice of swimming have proved their worth, as well as the spinal traction, particularly effective to treat this twist of the spine. Indeed, this method makes it possible to stretch the column and to align it with the pelvis and the shoulders, while making the vertebrae a correct position. With Nubax Trio, it is now possible to enjoy the benefits of spinal traction at home, with simplicity and safety. Nubax works by using gravity, the weight of the upper body, and leverage, to apply a traction force to the back. Whilst pulling the shoulders and hips in alignment with the spine.Nubax is simple to use, and it takes three sessions of three minutes per day to regenerate the spine. Indicated for Scoliosis and many back problems, Nubax can also be used to correct a bad posture due to a scoliotic attitude.
Nubax and Sciatica
- What is Sciatica?
Sciatica Neuralgia, more commonly known as sciatica, manifests itself as a sharp pain felt along one of the two sciatic nerves, which are the largest nerves in the body. They are located at the back of each leg, and join the spine in the lower back, just above the coccyx, in the lumbar and sacral vertebrae. People with sciatica experience pain usually in one side of the body. It invades the buttocks and thighs and radiates towards the calf and the foot. It can be a short, intense electrical discharge or, on the contrary, be lighter but constant. This pain is accentuated when sitting or coughing and is relieved by lying down.
Causes of Sciatica
Sciatica is not a disease, but the sign that the sciatic nerve is irritated. This irritation can have several causes, such as the Facet Syndrome or the Piriform Syndrome, which mainly affects athletes, or the narrow lumbar canal in the elderly.
- The most common causes of Sciatica are herniated discs caused by the wear of an invertebral disc or simply the compression of the dics allowing the vertebra to press on the sciatic nerve.
A better explanation of a herniated disc is to imagine that the discs situated between the vertebrae act as shock absorbers and by ejecting a small amount of liquid each time they absorb the shock.
At night, when they are at rest, they slowly re-inflate by a re-aspiration mechanism, which can become less and less effective over time. As a result, the disks dry up and deteriorate.
Risk factors and treatment
Sciatica often affects people with Osteoarthritis or certain forms of Arthritis, as well as pregnant women because of belly weight and increased hormone secretion. It also affects sportspeople, people with jobs that require heavy lifting or thinks that they are overweight or live a sedentary lifestyle. Plus, having poor posture or weak abdominal muscles are also risk factors. Sciatica generally disappears within a few weeks, but if nothing is done to treat it, it may reappear. Traditionally, Sciatica is treated by resting, taking painkillers, and applying cold or heat to the painful area.
- Treating Sciatica with Nubax Trio To cure or avoid Sciatica Neuralgia, it is important to limit vertebral compression. Spinal traction is a proven method with treating Sciatica. It has been practiced in the United States since the 1980s using expensive and cumbersome machines. The introduction of Nubax Trio has revolutionised this practice. Invented in Australia, Nubax Trio decompresses the vertebrae thanks to a lever system that multiplies the body weight, exerting a suction force from the center of the vertebral disks. In the case of a herniated disc, the compressed disc regains its thickness and the protrusion is reabsorbed, as the Sciatic nerve is no longer crushed by the hernia and the pain subsides because the vertebrae are re-aligned. By using Nubax Trio for only three minutes at a time, three times a day, Vertebral regeneration is possible. It helps your back get healthy and you to get back to life. Nubax Trio is also effective in cases of Lordosis, Scoliosis, Stenosis or Kyphosis. Nubax Trio has opened new frontiers in the treatment and prevention of back pain. With Nubax Trio, Sciatica Neuralgia is no longer an issue!
- Very few exercises are this subtle with such powerful results. Done properly this exercise directly strengthens the muscles around your lumbar spine or your “low back.” This is where most back injuries and pain occur. Modify this move by lifting just your right arm and left leg first, then left arm and right leg.
- Lie down on stomach with arms and legs long. Draw abdominals up and away from the mat and pull shoulders down away from ears.
- Squeeze abs, back muscles and glutes to lift arms and legs off the mat. Release to start position with control.
- This is a sister exercise to the Superman listed above, but keeps the focus on the mid-back. It teaches you to relax your low back and isolate the mid-back muscles to do the work on their own. Too often our low back kicks in where it’s not needed.
- Start lying face down on mat. Lift abs away from mat to engage them and slide the shoulders down the back. The head is lifted in a low hover. Your body is one long line. Using your back muscles and core, lift the chest away from the mat into extension as you exhale. Think of lengthening from the crown of the head.
- Inhale and return back down to the mat slowly getting longer through the spine as you return.
Bird Dog Crunch
- This exercise strengthens the front and back side of the mid-section, both of which need to be strong to prevent low back pain. A balance challenge is presented with the leg and arm extended and the transverse abdominus is strengthened as it works to keep you from tipping to one side or another.
- Kneel on the mat on all fours. Reach one arm long, draw in the abs, and extend the opposite leg long behind you.
- Bring the elbow and knee in towards your center as you round your back remember to draw in your abs.
Full Body Roll-Up
- A classic Pilates exercise, this move strengthens the mid-section and stretches the back and hamstrings all at the same time. In addition, the slow movement of one vertebrae at a time—or “articulation”—is important for developing a more flexible back less prone to pain and injury. This move can be done every day!
- Start lying on mat with arms extended overhead, legs long, and feet flexed. Inhale as you lift arms up and begin curling chin and chest forward. Exhale as you roll the entire torso up and over legs keeping abs engaged and reaching for toes.
- Inhale as you being rolling your spine back down one vertebrae at a time and exhale as the upper portion of the back lower and arms reach pack overhead. Repeat moving slowly and using the abdominals to lift and lower, not momentum.
- After any workout or even just waking up in the morning, the downward dog is going to open up your back side. It stretches you from your heels to your head. Remember, your body is a kinetic chain so a bad back isn’t isolated to the spot you feel it. Likely, the tightness or pain involves other parts. This stretch will cover a wide spectrum.
- Begin in a kneeling position on your mat with hands directly under shoulders, fingers spread wide. Tuck your toes under and engage your abdominals as you push your body up off the mat so only your hands and feet are on the mat.
- Press through your hands moving your chest gently toward your thighs and your heels gently toward the floor. Relax your head and neck and breathe fully. Hold as long as you like.
