The annual incidence of pain syndrome is 5% and the complaints rate of second to acute respiratory diseases with backaches being more common in the active population group aged between 30 and 50. Researchers discovered that intervertebral discs could reabsorb liquid and restore their normal structures, following a spinal distraction. It was the goal of this research to study the efficiency of Cordus and Sacrus gravity device therapy of the spine; Cordus and Sacrus are the two devices designed to provide relaxation to paravertebral muscles. The rehabilitation course was conducted at the Center for Science and Research of Sport Science and Psychophysiology of South Ural State University in 18 patients aged between 23 and 65, suffering from various myofascial pain syndromes. The rigidity and the tone in the paravertebral muscle decreased significantly (p > 0.05) in most of the subjects who had elevated muscle tones before the session. It is worthy of note that working on deep-seated muscles of the lumbar and sacral muscles reduced stiffness and improved elasticity of the leg muscles (m. Gastrocnemius). The research findings suggest that paravertebral relaxation device gravity therapy, if performed by qualified staff, yields positive results on most of patients having no contraindications (>84% of the subjects), coming in the shape of pain relief and improved mobility of joints. The devices can be used as part of combination therapy for a wide range of spine conditions.
