LOS ANGELES, Jan. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Spinal Stretch, a new device for relieving low back pain, has been endorsed by Charles Burton, M.D., a noted spine neurosurgeon and a former Chairman of the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) Advisory Panel on Neurological Devices.
"Our long-held belief is that a self-administered spine health program is the key to keeping people healthy," said Dr. Burton, who heads the Center for Restorative Spine Surgery in St. Paul, MN, and edits the authoritative web site: http://www.burtonreport.com.
"Spinal Stretch is a good answer to address that need," said Dr. Burton, who is not associated with, and receives no compensation from, Spinal Stretch. "On the basis of our inter-organizational clinical trials of the Spinal Stretch device, I am pleased to recommend it as a safe, inexpensive, user-friendly device which has shown high patient acceptance."
The portable Spinal Stretch device weighs just 4 lbs and administers a powerful and effective therapeutic pulling force known as "spinal decompression," which can provide relief for many types of low back ailments, including sciatica, degenerative disc, herniated disc, stenosis, scoliosis, and facet syndrome.
"Spinal Stretch works by addressing the root cause of most back pain, which is the spinal discs drying out," explained Dr. David Starr, DC, a Los Angeles-area chiropractor who spent nearly a decade designing, patenting and testing the revolutionary new device before launching it on the commercial market in November 2009.
When used for 15 minutes daily, Spinal Stretch can increase the separation between the vertebrae, thereby relieving pressure on spinal discs and nerves. This separation can also create a "vacuum" effect inside the discs that can promote rehydration and restorative healing.
Spinal Stretch requires no assembly, can be used anywhere there is a door and a floor, and folds small enough to fit inside a carry-on bag. It is registered as a Class 1 Medical Device (FDA #3007360853) and is available for $149 at SpinalStretch.com.
