Its estimated that Lower back pain affects some 10 million Britons every day, according to the National Back Pain Society, resulting in a reliance on over-the-counter remedies and an estimated £530 million annual spend on pain medication. Indeed the NHS spends over £1 billion pounds annually. Significantly, the majority of lower back pain complaints are associated with the lumbar region and this is only rising due to increasing sedentary lifestyles.
The good news for back pain and sciatica sufferers is that relief could be on the way from Liverpool Science Park based LumbaCurve International, in the form of an innovative portable device designed to alleviate lower back pain naturally.
Using patented technology, LumbaCurve back pain relief combines passive gravity assisted traction with the effects of acupressure stimulation, and is very easy to use. Simply lie on the floor, slide LumbaCurve under the lower back, do a couple of basic stretching exercises, and relax, for literally a few minutes a day.
Used by physiotherapists, chiropractors, and osteopaths alike, the LumbaCurve design also provides the user with the combined benefits of shiatsu stimulation, yogic stretch, and acupressure massage. A major international distributor has now taken on LumbaCurve so confidence in this drug free product is growing.
LumbaCurve director David Pegg commented, “We are very pleased with the feedback we are getting from users and indeed healthcare professional such as the club doctor at a Premier League football club. In order to substantiate these testimonials, LumbaCurve has undergone clinical evaluation being compared directly with standard NHS treatment guidelines for low back pain. LumbaCurve was found to be significantly more effective than the NHS control group”
Consultant orthopaedic surgeon, Mr George Ampat FRCS, commented, “Having personally used the LumbaCurve device after suffering from lower back pain, I believe that LumbaCurve is of benefit to some patients suffering from discal problems, amongst other lower back pain issues that commonly occur.
To coincide with Back Care Awareness Week and World Spine Day LumbaCurve is currently available at a greatly reduced price during October
