Can the Nubax Trio ease your aching back?

By Steve Hefferon

Lasting back pain relief in just 3 to 6 minutes a day? If you’re skeptical, you’re in good company!

When I opened the box this Australian company sent me and read the claim accompanying their device, my first reaction was “Yeah, right!”

Here at The Healthy Back Institute we receive many products making big claims, but to be frank about it, the number of products that are GREAT enough for us to recommend are close to zero…

The Nubax, however, passed our rigorous reviews with flying colors!

Now I know how effective inversion can be for decompressing the spine and giving relief from back pain and sciatica as pressure is relieved. But there are a lot of people who are either scared to invert or can’t for a medical reason, such as a hip or knee replacement.

That’s why I was really interested to see how well the Nubax Trio worked for spinal decompression.

Here’s my take on how easy the Nubax is to assemble, how easy it is to use, and most importantly, how well it decompresses the spine:

    Great to hear Nicholas… we LOVE the Nubax and feel it is one of the best treatment devices ever developed, especially for lower back pain.

  2. Gail says

    My Nubax and infrared healing pad are my best friends. I
    have experienced so much relief with them. My life is definitely better.

  3. Mark Shea says

    I bought a Nubax in March of 2010 when I came across it by chance on the Wal-Mart web site. I experimented with it for a week, but returned it because it seemed to be a slight bit undersized for me (I’m 6 feet 5 inches tall). I e-mailed the company for suggestions and they were responsive, although I had already tried what they suggested and it did not help the situation, namely the strap slipping out of my waist bend and thus providing no decompression tension for my back. I feel that the design is a great idea, but the frame needs to be just a bit higher for someone my size. I tried raising the frame on 2 x 4s so as to keep the strap in the waist bend, but this created other problems. I would say that if you are 6′ 2″ or under, you should have no problem with the Nubax, but if you are taller, you may be disappointed. I really wish that the Nubax had worked for me, because I can’t use my inversion table at much of an angle due to circulation issues at my age (60+).

    I purchase the Nubax from your company and have used
    it daily for several months. I regret to report that it
    has not helped my thoracic and lower back pain. Would you consider a trade for your inversion unit?

  5. Rick says

    I use it everyday in the morning. I have hardly any back issues anymore and have had so much more flexability. Its probably one of the best thing I invested in for my back. If you have lowerback pain its a must thing to have.

  6. KS Lim says

    I am interested in buying the Nubax. How can I order?
    I live in Singapore but the add on cart only listed US and Canada.

  7. Admin says

    Hi KS Lim,

    Thank you for your query.

    We are very sorry but we cannot ship the Nubax outside the US or Canada.

    Thank you

    You said in the video that you “would NOT want to use the Nubax Trio for AFTER SURGERY with rods & pins”. Why?
    Just to keep this short, I will not go into my back issues, but.. I sure could use some professional help that’s on the other side of the fence of surgery! But also with surgery as well, which I think I am needing but too scared to do it. I’m only getting older & in more pain.
    Most of all, I need help now, so I can be stronger for surgery. Getting rolling cramping in my feet constantly now so I KNOW I need the right steps need to be put together up to, during & after surgery. Even advise of where to go for surgery weights heavy on my mind, mainly because I have ‘many’ other health issues that MUST be considered such as past pelvic floor muscle prolaspe.
    So if you feel you can help me, I invite you to email me. I have questions.
    Most Sincerely,

    No one should should use and form of decompression if you have had a fusion or rod and pins are being use to stabilize the spine. In either case you do not want to be putting a pulling force on the fusion or pins that are designed to hold the spine together…

    We highly suggest that you work to balance out your body from a strength and flexibility point of view, that mean strengthening the weak and stretching the tight muscle groups…

    I highly suggest that you get a copy of our New book The 7 Day Back Pain cure so you will have a better understanding of all of your options when it comes to treatment


  10. Steve says

    Tim, No form of Spinal Decompression should be used after a fusion including the Nubax, as the whole idea of the fusion was to keep the vertebra together, and decompression pulls them apart…


  11. Marie says

    I have herniated discs L4, L5 and sciatica. I went to 20 sessions of spinal decompression NOTHING has changed , I am still in pain. While browsing for specific exercices for herniated discs the answers I GOT WERE NOT TO INVERT,,NO TWISTING AND NOT BENDING FORWARD. And twisting AND STRETCHING from right to left was part of my daily exercices. I DONT KNOW WHAT TO BELIEVE ANYMORE..

  12. Admin says

    Hi Marie ,

    Thank you for your queries.

    We will answer all of these questions and set the record straight in our new book…

    Thank you

    I have not tried the Nubax…have tried inversion. The inversion hurt my ankles – too much pressure. With the Nubax demonstration you have to be on your knees. Is there another way to use this product as I cannot put pressure on my knees (in fact getting on the floor is a big problem as I cannot get up without help). I have herniated the L5-S1, buldging L1-L2, L2-L3-L3-L4, L4-L5, sciatic pain on and off, Osteoporosis in the spine, arthritis/degenerative disc disease and osteopenia in the hip (I had breast cancer and the drug I was put on for the past 5 years did it’s job – #1 side affect is bone loss). Prior to that my BMD was better than good). I have been going for acupuncture for pain relief as I refuse to go to pain management with all those drugs injected in my spine/back and am looking for holistic/natural help.

  14. Dori says

    I bought one of these for my husband, it only took him a week to realize how great it is. He told me to throw away the box, no way was he returning it.

  15. Steve says


    Beside, the kneeling issue, I suggest that you consult your physician before using any form of spinal decompression device if your bond density is in question… further there is a really good book called The Calcium Lie, by Dr Robert Thompson. I would suggest it to anyone with bond density issue…

    P.S. My wife just finished her 4 rounds of chemo and will be starting the hormone drug for the next 5 years, so I thank you for sharing your story…


  16. Steve says


    That is a great story and I think it is interesting how some people just know, that a product and or procedure is right for them… I can not invert and I know it, and I stat away form inverting, and yes I have a Nubax and I it does agree with me and I use it every week…


  17. Paige says

    I love my Nubax. It helps my back problems tremendously. I have a herniated disks L3-L5 and spondalytic arthritis plus fibromyalgia and CFS. Twenty plus years of martial arts did not do me any favors! It really gives me a lot of relief. Because of arthritis in my knees, I use a gardner’s pad to kneel on. My boyfriend also experienced great relief with it. He cannot do inversion because he had a stroke in his eye and cannot have added pressure on it. He has had other people try it, and purchased one for those who it helps. We have even taken one down to a friend in Mexico. He had 100% relief. I think that the earlier you start using this the more chance you have of complete recovery.

    Peter, there is not way for anyone to know, specifically how long you, as an individual user would need to use the Nubax to get the result you want…

    Truth is you do not need to have the disc more 100% back to its orginal positon to be painfree you just need the disc to move just enough to take the pressure off the nerve and in some cases that happens with one use, I’ve seen it and I have had people tell me that many times…

    That said, there is no way to say that the disc will go back into place and be permanent, that not how the body works, I suggest that you read our New book The 7 Day Back Pain Cure or under our Treatments section on this web site our Concept of Muscle Balance Therapy and you will understand all of the factors that need to be addressed, as Spinal Decompression is a great treatment, there is more to learn…
