An investment that increases your income...

P.T. Karin Timmermans at Mastercare Training Centre:

"Most backcomplaints are caused by instability of the spine. The condition of our disc is being most responsible for a good functionning segment. That means that if the amount of fluid in the disc is decreasing, the distance between the vertebrae is decreasing, the stability is getting lost and nerves can be pinched.

On the Mastercare device we find that due to its moving backrest with an inclination of 15°, the tractionforce is big enough to effect a structural change at the spinal segment, because this moving backrest eliminates friction. The moving backrest also permits us to do some more exercices to relieve pressure on the joints and realign the pelvis with a few simple stretching movements as to increase mobility.

We obtain relaxation, decreasing of pain and musclespasm, increase mobility, increase circulation and nutrition towards discs and joints, postural correction and re-alignment of pelvic and spine, increasing muscle balance and power in an unloaded position."

"As a physiotherapist working with backpatients every day I know that the Mastercare        Back-A-Taction is perfect to treat ... most of all backproblems. I would like to recommend
this device to anyone who wants to help people with backcomplaints."
-Karin Timmermans, P.T., Mastercare Training Centre, Kalmthout, Belgium



"The Mastercare Back-A-Traction unit is particularly suited to a busy clinic setting because
the unit locks at either -15º or -30º  of inversion and the patient can be taught to use the
unit independently, thus freeing up the therapists for other work in the clinic."
