    Hi,
    When I was diagnosed with lumbar spondylosis (1997), part of my physio was using a stretch machine.  I used it only once - I was worse after than I was before.
    In a recent appointment with the surgery physiotherapist, he said they`ve since been banned.  The one I was subjected to (yes, subjected) was like the old torture gadget where they strapped you down and turned you into a 7 footer from a 5 footer (slight exaggeration ;)).
    I`ve just looked at your link; I would be inclined to discuss the items therein with a medical professional.  Having said that, I think there is an ex-physiotherapist on here who may be able to help.

    I fully support your opinion. The only problem is the conflict of interest of the doctor or physiotherapist you are referring to. Do you think he will give up his income in favor of devices that can help you at home? I'm sorry, but I don't think so

    I`m sorry, but your reply doesn`t make sense to me.
