Saunders Lumbar Hometrac Traction Unit

Saunders Lumbar Hometrac State-of-the-art Traction at Home

Old Hospital Traction Methods

Traction is no longer like this: shown above as this patient was hospitalized in traction for 2 weeks, 40 years ago.


Although the Saunders Lumbar Hometrac was designed for use at home by back pain sufferers, the professional quality and durability make it a wise choice for small clinical settings as well. Users easily control pressure by way of a pneumatic pump. The friction-free track creates a highly efficient, effective result; facilitating the use of less poundage while achieving better therapy than other, more expensive electronic traction units. Saunders design of both the thoracic and pelvic belts exerts less pressure as traction is applied; really improving comfort.

Correctly performed traction benefits the body in the following manner: Lumbar Traction for Disc Herniation

  1. Distraction or separation of the vertebral bodies
  2. Distraction and increased gliding motion of the weight-bearing facet joints
  3. Improved tensile strength of the ligamentous structures that stabilize the spine
  4. Widening of the intervertebral nerve spaces
  5. Straightening of excessive spinal curves
  6. Stretching of the spinal musculature with gentle release of scar tissue adhesions
  7. A decrease in intra-discal pressure, eliciting a suction of fluid into the disc and possible retraction of herniation from negative pressure. Overall, the process brings hydration and nutrients to the cartilage cells, aiding the healing process.

Spinal traction has been used for treatment of the following conditions: Lumbar Traction indicated for Degenerative Discs

  • spinal nerve root impingement from: a) herniated disc; b) ligament encroachment; c) narrowing of the intervertebral foramen; d) osteophyte encroachment; e) spinal nerve root swelling; and f) certain types of spondylolisthesis.
  • joint hypomobility
  • degenerative joint disease
  • extrinsic muscle spasm and muscle guarding
  • discogenic or joint pain
  • Lumbar Facet Syndrome
  • compression fracture

Traction should not be applied if there is knowledge or signs of infection, malignancy or any condition where movement is contraindicated. Acute strains, sprains, and inflammatory conditions may be aggravated by traction. Traction given to patients with hypermobility of the spine may cause further problems. We recommend that you discuss lumbar traction with your attending physician prior to use.

    CAUTIONS FOR USING LUMBAR TRACTION: a Saunders Lumbar Traction Unit can apply up to 200 lbs. of force. We highly suggest you acquire a physician recommendation and specific instructions for proper application regarding your particular diagnosis as a prerequisite to using Saunders Lumbar Hometrac. Please read: Contraindications For Lumbar Traction in page text above. As a general rule it is best to start with only about 40 lbs. of traction for the initial treatments and the adjust slowly upward for subsequent treatments. Traction can be be sustained or intermittent and the pump, combined with the pressure relief valve puts these options within the user's control. Overall treatment times should perhaps begin with about 10 minutes and should not exceed 20 minutes, unless advocated to the contrary by your physician. Traction is usually not done more than once per day, nor more than every other day. When traction therapy is begun the user may end the session feeling a little sore or awkward with benefits often not felt until later that day or perhaps the following day.
