True Back® is a “non-powered orthopedic traction device” designed to relieve back pain, stress, tension and improve posture. True Back® is totally portable, being only two feet long and weighing about two pounds. The new True Back® is adjustable, with the foam infills in place the traction and mobilization pressure is milder. Remove the infills and the traction effect increases. True Back is the best self-traction device for a painless, flexible spine; and was designed to stretch and mobilize the individual vertebral segments in a way somewhat similar to a subtle chiropractic adjustment, thereby relieving pain and improving posture.
- Comfort Pillow for use under parts of the spine not utilizing the therapy at the moment. Could either be the cervical spine(neck) or the lumbar spine(low back) depending on chosen positioning.

The gently curved shape of the device allows the head and pelvis to be passively stretched in opposite directions, the natural traction is created when the force of gravity causes an interaction between the special shape of the unit and the user’s body weight. This supported ‘intersegmental traction style‘ effect decompresses the vertebrae. With the high end towards the head the device favors the neck and upper back areas. Reverse the device with the higher end towards the base of the spine and the lower back receives most of the traction force.
