Can you imagine having a full-time chiropractor ready to relieve your back pain 24/7 at the comfort of your home – For free?
You can stop imagining. This is exactly what you get by owning a home spinal decompression device.
While studies on home spinal decompression machines benefits are lacking, the word “on the street” seems to get louder every year, and more people discover the powerful pain-busting ability of home traction devices – Without medication.
Statistics find that a good quality home device can even prevent back surgery, if you use it properly.
But how to choose a home spinal decompression machine? Which will most fit your needs? Which one’s the most cost-effective?
But which one will finally get your lasting back pain relief?
If I’ve learned one thing from my personal experience and research on spinal decompression, it’s this:
A well designed home spinal decompression machine can be just as effective the fancy DRX 9000 at your chiropractor’s clinic, for a fraction of the cost.
Important Warning about Home Spinal Traction Devices
Wait a minute. Before you go and look for bargains at Walmart or on Amazon, know this: Not all traction devices are equally effective and safe.
A low quality inversion table will have a disastrous impact of your back pain and may make it significantly worse.
How to Choose the Best Spinal Decompression for You
In my opinion and through my own research, I’ve found the top 3 options for spinal decompression at home. All of these systems are backed up by real research – and they won’t be too costly either.
Option #1 – Inversion Table
An Inversion Table provides spine decompression starting from 15% inversion and often bring FAST and immediate back pain relief, including hip and neck pain.
No more popping pain killers and stretching every hour. Inversion tables can be effective for herniated discs, bulging discs, sciatica and pinched nerve, degenerative disc disease and arthritis joint pain.
I found a number of studies showing that many back surgeries have been cancelled after patients used an inversion table as little as eight times.
This video shows how an Inversion Table works:
The key to success with these tables is to use a QUALITY device.
The most popular inversion table is definitely the Teeter Hang Ups.It costs between 180$ – 300$ with free shipping. But, if you are not sure that an inversion table is right for you, The Healthy Back Institute offers a risk-free Trial for an excellent inversion table – So if you don’t like it you can just return it and not pay a dime.
I don’t know about you, but I like to try stuff before I actually buy them.
If you’d like to know more (and you should…), See my detailed review for the Teeter Hangups.

Option #2 – The Nubax Trio
The Nubax Trio is only recommended for middle and lower back pain (from the shoulder blades to the SI joint) but it’s an excellent alternative to those who feel uncomfortable inverting.
The Nubax Trio is easier to get in and out of and it allows you to apply as little or as much traction as is needed. It only takes 3-6 minutes of treatment a day of leaning over and relaxing.
In one study by the School of Sport Science, Exercise, and Health in Western Australia, the Nubax was shown to give 100% improvement for users – In physical function, stiffness and pain – Within the first three weeks!
I searched for the best price for this machine and found that (as usual) the best price is online. Most online stores offer it for 299$. You can get it on Amazon with free shipping.
But, if you buy it on The Healthy Back Institute website, you can get a payment plan, which makes it a little more affordable.

Option #3 – True Back Traction Device
This small hunk of solid plastic takes up no room to store it. There’s nothing in it to break or go wrong, you’d need a hammer or a big dog to cause any damage to it. Plus, no parts will ever need replacing.
(I love the part about no parts to replace)
The design is quite simple: When you are lying on the True Back, the 30 suspension points molded into the center rails support your body weight and create pressure to the muscles on each side of the spine.
This pressure allows for the muscles to completely relax, and thus boots your blood circulation. It decompresses your spine and you are passively stretching in opposite directions while being supported in the correct position.
The True Back 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.
I’ve just finished a detailed review about this great little device, you can read all about it – HERE.
To your health and happiness,
