VacuPractor -- Is This The Solution For Lower Back Pain Relief?

X-ray taken of my lumbar vertebrae April 2014
I cannot remember a time when my back didn't hurt. As a child and teenager I remember always being in pain. Even during my years of playing competitive ice hockey, I just played through the pain. And then there were times when the pain was so bad that I ended up at the physical therapist's office doing isolation exercises for my back muscles.

Those were painful. And they helped a little. But the pain always crept back.

Lower back pain is the worst. I have issues with arthritis creeping into my sacroiliac joint, and compounding that with inflammation in my hip joint and bursae, my lumbar spine hurting is the straw that broke the camel's back. I couldn't take anymore. I had to do something. So I went searching for answers. I went to see a rolfer who specializes in structural integration, I started getting chiropractic adjustments more frequently.

Because I live in Central America, and don't speak the language, I rely on other ex-pats for help. I know two chiropractors and one rolfer. I used to go to the Peterson Wellness Center back home, and sometimes I was there once or twice a week for relief.

When I went visiting my family back in April, I went back to Peterson Wellness Center to get adjusted and got some x-rays. Dr. Norman took a look at the x-rays (see the image above) and explained how the first three vertebrae in my lumbar spine were straight, and had no movement. The last two vertebrae were overcompensating for the curve that was supposed to be there, ultimately causing excruciating pain.

I was given some exercises to do and came back to Panama.

Because back pain SUCKS, and is hard to go about your regular daily life, I have tried almost everything: Nikken Magflex magnets, Soothanol X2, icing, stretching, exercise, chiropractic and massage. I have not resorted to pain pills because I am petrified of getting hooked on them.

So, when I found out about the VacuPractor, I got SO excited. GUARANTEED TO WORK! Well, that is worth a shot, right? I looked forward to it arriving in the mail, and when it did, my husband used it first. He doesn't have low back pain, but he tried it anyway. He did not feel a difference, and I was so worried that when I tried it, it wouldn't work on me. I really was counting on this thing to help me!

My turn came. I followed the instructions, and I do have to admit that it was a bit uncomfortable for me to lay flat on my back without my feet or legs being elevated. Because I have arthritis in my SI joint, it isn't a good position for me, but it wasn't unbearable, so I stuck it out. When I got up after using the VacuPractor for 10 minutes I was IMMEDIATELY able to feel relief in my lumbar spine. (Unfortunately not my SI joint, but maybe eventually it will help with that once my lumbar spine is better?)

To me it felt like my spine and surrounding soft tissue was being massaged from the inside out. And I felt that way for hours afterward.

This is amazing. Honestly, for those folks who have lumbar issues, this is going to rock their world!
My lower back has been in a LOT of pain
