”I have used the Swedish Back Care System from Mastercare in order to get the best possible relief of my back and joints.
I strongly feel that my regular back exercise has been well worth the few minutes spent each day to avoid stress, pain and injury to my body.”

“Besides stretching and unwinding the back, backward inversion makes it easier for the return to the heart and lungs of venous blood which then gets faster oxygenated.”

“After fifteen years of hard training, and thousands of miles on the road, I´m thinking of the future. Avoiding back problems is a major step towards a healthy life.

With the Master programme, I can stretch my back naturally. It really helps after a hard workout. When combined with relaxation,
the effects are amazing.”

Tre kronor - Swedish national hockey team

“The Mastercare gives a light traction in the cervical, thorax and lumbar part of the spine as well as in the hip, knee and foot joints. This has been positive both before and after training or game. I strongly recommend Mastercare – The Swedish Health Care System.
It is an easy to use tool for training and rehabilitation. It is built from basic physiological laws and is also easy to use for the individual after just a short demonstration and introduction.”

Ulf Karlsson, Physiotherapist
The Swedish National Hockey team Tre Kronor

As you know I was suffering from a pinched nerve and herniated disk in the lumbar spine area. After several weeks of using Back-A-Traction and following your suggested exercise routine while laying on the sliding platform; I enjoyed a great deal of relief. After continued use I was able to avoid back surgery.

Initially the unit was purchased for my personal use. However, after experiencing such satisfactory results I moved the unit into our gym so that our members could use it and I would have it available to me while at work. A number of our members use the Back-A Traction on a regular basis and most have had great results. All those that use it after workouts find that they have much less back pain.”
