A restorative treatment with transformative results
For many patients, ReActiv8 goes straight to the source of mechanical CLBP: your multifidus muscle, the primary stabilizer of your lumbar spine. If you suffer from mechanical CLBP, you may be all too familiar with the cycle of pain, muscle deterioration, and movement difficulty.
ReActiv8’s restorative therapy can disrupt this cycle of pain and muscle degeneration by painlessly stimulating the nerves of your multifidus muscle and causing beneficial contractions. The ReAtiv8-B clinical study shows that this can significantly reduce mechanical CLBP.
1. ReActiv8 placement
During a minimally-invasive procedure, your physician will implant the ReActiv8 system in your lower back. Two electrical leads are positioned to stimulate the nerves that control your multifidus muscle, a stabilizing muscle in your lower back. The leads are connected to the implantable pulse generator which is placed just under the skin in the upper buttock or lower back area.
2. Patient-controlled therapy
Twice a day, you simply use a remote linked to your ReActiv8 system to start your therapy session — then lie down and relax.
For each 30-minute session, ReActiv8 generates painless electrical pulses that cause your multifidus muscle to contract and relax.
3. Substantial and lasting improvements
After one year, the ReActiv8-B clinical trial showed that 78% of patients were “definitely satisfied” with the treatment. Overall, 64% of patients had reduced their pain by half or more while 73% of participants had a 50% improvement in pain and/or disability.
Real patients with real results
Many people who were treated for their mechanical chronic low back pain with ReActiv8 have seen a dramatic improvement and were eager to share their stories to give hope to others.
Patients’ stories are theirs only and not indicative of the results for all patients. Patient outcomes will vary.
