True Back Orthopedic Traction Device Review & FAQ 2018

If your back hurts right now, I’m guessing that just looking at the structure of the True Back Traction Device can make your back pain worse.

Stretching your back when you’re in pain is not an easy decision.

But:

What if it really works?

What if you could say goodbye to all that tension, stiffness and pain in your back in just a few minutes a day – using a simple orthopedic back stretcher?

True Back Orthopedic Back Traction Review

The True Back Traction device is a convenient little home back stretching device. It allows your back to be passively stretched in opposite directions while being supported in the correct position.

  • Size: The True Back is 24 x 10 x 4 inches, 4 pounds. I find it east to pick and store, takes almost no storage space.
  • Weight: 4 pounds

Before we go into detail, here’s our summary:

How Does the True Back Work?

When you lie on the device, the 30 suspension points molded into the center rails support your body weight and create pressure on the muscles on each side of your spine.

This pressure allows for the muscles to completely relax, which increases blood flow.

It decompresses your spine and you are passively stretching in opposite directions while being supported in the correct position.

The True Back non-powered orthopedic traction device decompresses your spine and takes away all the tension from your back. When you get off it, you have a great feeling of renewed well-being.

Who Can Benefit From the True Back?

true back review and rating

The True Back can be helpful for anyone suffering from

  • Back muscle knots
  • Sciatica
  • Back pain after exercising (it can prevent the pain if you use it before exercising!)
  • Back pain from prolonged sitting and standing
  • Posture related back pain
  • Herniated/bulging disc

Pro Tip:

The True Back offers a mild form of spinal decompression. If you need stronger traction, I would advise you to consider the Nubax Trio or a high quality inversion table.

True Back Extra Benefits

The True Back doesn’t just temporarily relieve back pain. If you use it properly and every day, you’ll enjoy these benefits:

  1. Improved flexibility and range of motion
  2. Better sleep
  3. Improved posture
  4. Stress relief
  5. Increased energy.

Also, the True Back is an effective back pain prevention tool, not just a pain reliever.

True Back Treatment Time

You’ll only need a few minutes a day (3-5 minutes) to get the remarkable benefits of the True Back.

But if you stop using it every day, you can’t expect lasting results.

The secret is to keep using it every day, if only for a few minutes.

  • Use it before you go to sleep if you have back pain at night.
  • Use it before and after exercising to prevent injury and back pain.
  • Use it whenever you feel a “back attack” is coming to stop it dead in its tracks.

Where to Buy the True Back

I’ve checked the price both on Amazon and the True Back website. The price is usually lower on Amazon. Check this page and if you find it for less than $79 – it’s a good deal.

True Back Stretcher FAQ

Here are answers for the most frequently asked questions about the True Back:

Is it Painful to Use the True Back?

true back traction deviceThe stretch is quite strong, but that’s the point of having a stretching device –

Tto give you a stronger stretch passively than you can do on your own.

Though it can be painful to lie on at first, when your back relaxes and “adjusts” (you’ll feel that nice crack), it can be extremely helpful.

I can’t say that this is “comfortable,” but I think the hard protrusions with their nubs are designed not only to grip your back, but also to poke in and “force” your muscles to relax.

Keep the foams in place and you can use a small blanket on it until you get used to it. If you want to take the stretching down a notch you can use a small pillow under your head.

Does the True Back Come With Instructions?

Yes, the True Back comes with an instructional DVD, make sure you watch it to use it correctly.

Will it Break Down Easily?

The True Back is made of solid plastic and you’ll need a hammer or a big (and angry) dog to cause any damage to it. There are no parts that will need replacement ever and it can last indefinitely.

How High is the Highest Lift?

The Trueback is about 3.5 inches from the floor at the highest point.

True Back Downsides

The True Back is a bit long for me, so my head rests on the hard end of it and I need something for padding. Other than that I couldn’t find any other downsides.

True Back Stretcher Best Price

It may seem like a lot of money for a piece of solid plastic, but it gets the job done as promised and relieves back pain effectively, making it worth every penny.

Check this page, and if you find it for less than $80 – it’s a good deal. Grab it.

The price may seem high, but it won’t anymore when you reap the benefits. I would definitely say that the True Back is a great buy and my preferred way to relieve back pain – without medication.

Pro Tip:

You can find cheaper back stretchers, such as the North American Back Stretcher, but this one doesn’t have the pressure points which increase blood circulation. It’s up to you.
