From the video on the Lumbar Saunders Traction Unit:

"Dr. Karin explains how to use a Saunder's Lumbar Traction Unit for low back pain.

If you have low back pain, are considering an inversion table or other home device to help, checkout the Saunder's Lumbar Traction unit.
If you are going to take the time to stretch your back, you want the best for your time home remedy. In my biased opinion, the Saunder's lumbar traction is the best. For a therapeutic traction, you need 10 minutes at least twice a day.
More than 20 minutes at a time can cause permanent elongation of the ligaments that hold your bones together, causing more harm than good.
Inversion tables are limited to under 10 because of the pressure it exerts on your head from being upside down, causing blood to uncomfortable rush into your head.
Plus inversion tables can not target the low back, and can cause harm to other regions.
Getting out of inversion tables is also tricky if you have a bad low back.
In this video, Dr. Karin explains how to get into the Saunders traction unit, how to use it to stretch (and re-hydrate the discs of) your low back, and how to safely get back into a standing position.
As always, before you try any home remedy, talk to your healthcare provider to make sure it is appropriate for you. Hopefully that is one of us here at Drummond Chiropractic if you are here in Bloomington, Indiana. All of our chiropractors are low back pain chiropractic experts."
