I believe, that if the idiopathic juvenile scoliosis in young teens is detected early and a systematic plan of treatment is carried out using a combination of axial traction (with the Mastercare being the best system I know of) corrective exercises, and EMS stimulation, an optimal outcome can be achieved.”

Most sports such as cricket and rugby, which Craig is involved in are very ‘compressive’ in the nature of the biomechanics involved. This is particularly true of fast bowlers, and the tight five in rugby. The controlled longitudinal traction with the dynamic nature of the moving portion of the table in the professional version, makes for an excellent way to decompress the spine, stretch muscles and ligaments and allows for physical therapy to take place for the first time in a ‘distracted position’.
IN other words, since the table is so stable and the patient is locked in, a lot of the myofascial release, stretching, dry needling, electrotherapy and joint mobilization/manipulation techniques can take place in 15 or 30 degrees of inversion. Also since the intervertebral discs require ‘movement’ for nourishment, the inversion forces could encourage better nourishment of the nucleus pulposis.

“There is no doubt in my mind that certain types of low-back pain, with muscle spasms are treated to full healing with this equipment.”
“The medical conclusion is that Mastercare, The Swedish Back Care System, means a break-through in nearly all back-care rehabilitation.”
“I highly recommend using the Mastercare Inversion Table.”
I was introduced to it 6 years ago, when I, as a physiotherapist, was invited to a professional demonstration. I know immediately that this is the thing I was looking for years.
I think that as a physiotherapist I have to teach people how to take care of themselves. I prefer to give people fishing poles rather than fish.With the Mastercare, everybody can live for ever with no back pains.
I bought one Mastercare Inversion Table for myself , for home use. I have a severe Scoliosis and a severe risk for Osteoporosis. The daily traction that I have by using the bed, prevent any back pains in spite the very hard physical work that I am doing daily. In addition, as a physiotherapist I made a study of the ways how to prevent, or, how to slow Osteoporosis. Traction and rotation with traction on the spines are recommended.
While exercising on the bed I make rotation and other exercises.
I have a wonderful feeling when I use the Mastercare, and I often recommend using it to my patients.

Natural Spinal Decompression with Mastercare Back-A-Traction
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 functioning 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 exercises 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.”
How and why Mastercare Back-A-Traction is useful for Physical Therapist
…Mastercare Back-A-Traction is an adjunct to exercise therapy for patients with many diagnoses, allowing treatment while patients are in supine or prone position…
Mastercare Back-A-Traction offers Natural Spinal Decompression
Thanks to its moving backrest the traction force is sufficient to relieve the pressure of joints and spine already in 15º inclination, which is enough to ensure a comfortable position and allow the muscles to be relaxed in between each exercise, and still have the best results of inversion.
Mastercare Back-A-Traction is the only scientifically tested and evaluated inversion product on the market. It has been successfully used all over the world since 1987 by medical doctors, physical therapists, chiropractors, naprapaths etc. for patient groups with mobility difficulties due to back, neck, shoulder, hip and knee problems.
Mastercare Back-A-Traction is being used in Sweden in the education at:
– The Naprapath College, Stockholm
– Physical Therapist School in Lund
– Physical Therapist School at Karolinska Hospital, Stockholm.
The Mastercare Concept – which has been developed together with experienced medical doctors and physical therapists in Sweden – is based on decompression of discs and joints in combination with simple therapeutic exercises in 15º inversion. Its moving backrest transforms the bodyweight into gravity traction and the exercises are done in an unloaded and pain free position, which renders in general a decompression throughout the entire body.
The Mastercare System is unique as in 15° you can combine different techniques on one single device so that it becomes very practical in today’s clinic, such as:
– Soft tissue
– Use McKenzie principle under traction
Help and treat more patients at the same time and increase your income!
After introduction the patients can often treat themselves and regain an
active life with less pain.
