Posture Pump® gently decompresses shapes and hydrates the discs in your neck and back. When the neck and back lose their natural curved shape, the soft discs that are in between the vertebrae become compressed and rich lubricating fluid is unable to penetrate and hydrate the discs. This causes premature aging in the form of stiff dry joints. Posture Pump® counteracts that by lifting, stretching, decompressing, hydrating and shaping the neck and back into its “vital” natural curved shape.
With easy to use hand pumps and uniquely angled air cells, expansion and contraction (up and down motion) of these air cells create alternating hydration of the spinal discs and joints. When the air cells are left inflated for longer periods of time (15-20 min.), postural restoration occurs.
Posture Pump® has TWO IRB Approved MRI Studies that were conducted by Dr. C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D., neurosurgeon, researcher and author. Studies showed that Posture Pump® decompressed, shaped and lubricated the discs and joints of the spine as well as showing disc bulge resorption. Our 2008 MRI Study compared it to a commonly used form of traction and Posture Pump® improved the cervical (neck) curve in 72% of the study subjects versus only 8% in the commonly used traction device. Posture Pump® also increased the average disc height twice as much as the commonly used form of traction. Dr. Shealy stated “Considering the cost, effectiveness and ease of therapy, Posture Pump® appears to be the first choice of treatment for cervicogenic pain and cervicogenic headache.”
