The Pneu-Back program™ offers a new approach to managing lumbar stability.

Lumbar instability is one of the most challenging spinal diagnoses seen in orthopedic physiotherapy. Over the past 10 years, the Pneumex Corporation has done a significant amount of research with the aid of many physiotherapists in designing what is now known as the PNEU-Back (distraction system). This program has clinically been shown to be one of the most advanced and effective systems for assessing and treating lumbar instabilities.
