About Extentrac Elite

Advanced Back Technologies, Inc., introduces Extentrac® Elite providing
M3D® (Multi-Directional Disc Decompression)

Extentrac® Elite is a patented, non-surgical device for the treatment of lower back pain. It is designed to relieve pressure on structures that may be causing lower back pain through decompression of the intervertebral discs and facet joints, that is unloading the spine with distraction and positioning.

Extentrac® Elite leads the way in helping your physician, chiropractic physician, and physical therapist provide relief for debilitaing acute and chronic lower back pain and sciatica (leg and thigh pain) due to :

Protruding or Herniated Discs
Acute Facet Problems and Pain
Degenerative Disc Disease

Extentrac® Elite’s state-of-the-art design and extraordinary treatment versitility is the direct result of extensive cooporation between skilled physicians, experienced design engineers, and most importantly - patients.

Extentrac® Elite is Safe


Extentrac® Elite is registered with the United States Food and Drug Administration. Treatment is painless as the application of distractive force is gradual and controlled. The parameters of therapy and applied customized treatment protocols are pre-selected after a complete health history and comprehensive examination.

Non-Surgical Intervertebral Disc Decompression


Non-surgical disc decompressoin is the reduction of internal disc pressure through the application of non-invasive distractive force. Lowering internal disc pressures with distraction, may help to reduce pain, enhance disc and joint
nutrition and retract protruding or herniated discs.

Multi-Directional Disc Decompression (M3D®)

Advanced Back Technologies, Inc., M3D®, a new patented technology comprising a fully articulating leg and low back support assembly. This allows placement of the spine into varying degrees of flexion, extension, lateral flexion to accommodate painful postures and administer disc decompression at correct anatomical positions. This revolutionary M3D® system additionally enables ‘hands-on’ manually applied therapeutic procedures including gravity/postural traction, therapeutic exercise and facet-joint joint mobilization.

Extentrac® Elite combines extension, flexion, or lateral flexion positioning with
simultaneously applied decompression represented by the diverging arrows. This acts synergistically to provide a rapid more effective means of relieving low back pain than axial decompression alone. When assessing Extentrac® Elite’s therapy effectiveness, the whole is truly greater than the sum of the parts.

How will the Extentrac Elite with M3D help Me?

The Extentrac Elite will help you by gently separating the bones in your back allowing the disc to move towards its proper position, taking the disc off of the nerve root while removing the irritation and your pain. While doing this the disc is also "pumped" allowing vital fluids to hydrate the disc and nutrients to be introduced back into the disc further helping the healing process.

Has back pain taken the LIFE from you?

There is an answer and it is NOT surgery.

Are you tired of living but not truly living your LIFE due to pain? Is it low back pain, sciatica, numbness and tingling into the legs that have stopped you? Pains that are due to Bulging or Herniated discs or maybe even facet syndrome?

So many people are truly not living their life the way they would because of these problems.

Now that can all change, thanks to the Extentrac Elite, with M3D technology. A new, non-surgical, FDA approved approach to herniated and bulging discs, sciatica and facet syndrome. An approach that will allow you to take your life back. By combining specific positioning and disc decompression, you will now be given the results that few can offer.

What is a herniated disc?

How can it hurt me?

The intervertebral disc is a rubbery sponge like disc that sits in between the bones in your back, commonly known as vertebrae. The disc itself is mostly fluid filled. These discs act not only as a structural support, but also as a shock absorber to the spine. The intervertebral discs also separate and hold the bones in the back to a specific height, keeping them apart and keeping the disc off of the nerves that come out from the spine. These nerves not only go to your lower back, but they also go down your legs into your toes (sciatic nerve). When the discs have enough pressure put on them, they compress and leak out, creating a bulge which can put pressure on a nerve (pinched nerve), causing low back pain, numbness, atrophy even sciatica.

The problem?

Gravity.

Because of the inherent effects of gravity on the spine, pressure is constantly applied to the soft gelatinous discs that separate andcushionthe spine. With added stress to the discs, factors such as lifting, , auto or work injury, sports injury obesity or pregnancy can compress these discs, damage the tissue and create a bulge or a herniation.
