Congratulations! Now you have the solution for that problem in your back! The results will depend on the constancy and correct use of CORDUS.

Introduction

CORDUS is intended to relax the deep spinal muscles. It is extremely beneficial to people who have back and limb problems, as well as those who want to increase their vitality. It can also help with the treatment of internal organ diseases.

The continuous use of CORDUS decompresses the intervertebral discs and aids in the recovery and self-alignment of the vertebrae. CORDUS is based on the self-gravitation method. Because it works with the body's weight, it is physiologically natural, safe, and non-invasive for the spine. It also includes magnet therapy, acupressure, passive yoga, and deep massage. CORDUS can be used both at home and by specialists.

CORDUS can be used as early as the age of twelve.

CORDUS is suitable for people over the age of ten and with a height of more than 150 centimeters.

It is critical to have a diagnosis that is supported by a CT scan or an MRI; X-rays are not always sufficient.

If a condition not described in this manual is found in your diagnosis, you must obtain permission from your doctor before using Cordus.

CORDUS is recommended in case of:

  • Functional blockage of the spinal segments (spasms of intervertebral muscles): dyscalgia, low back pain or lumbago, sciatica, thoralgia, cervicalgia.
  • Pain caused by Pain syndrome, as a consequence of protrusion of the annulus fibrosus of the intervertebral disc (herniated disc); tunnel syndrome, peripheral nerve syndromes, numbness of the hands and legs, “frozen shoulder” syndrome, and epicondylitis of the shoulder.
  • Myofascial pain syndrome and restricted mobility in the neck, thoracic and lumbar area.
  • Muscle overload from intense sports training.
  • Back and neck pain caused by excess muscle tension due to static posture.
  • Osteochondrosis in any location, 1°, 2° and 3° grades of scoliosis and roto-scoliosis, 1° and 2° kyphoscoliosis, youth osteochondropathy (Sheyerma-Mau condition), postural errors, growth retardation in children and youths.
  • Headaches of different etiology, insufficient blood circulation in the brain, related to cervical pathology in the neck, spinal artery syndrome, occipital nerve neuralgia, and insomnia.
  • Dysfunctions of the autonomous nervous system caused by biomechanical failures in the locomotive segments of the spine; heart problems, pectoral angina, hypotonic or hypertonic neurocirculatory dystonia; functional failures in sight and hearing (after the peripheral failure of blood circulation), vesicular dyskinesia, interruptions or changes in the functions of the bronchi and lungs, stomach, intestine, liver, pancreas, kidneys, and genitourinary system.
  • Diabetes, low blood pressure, gynecological problems, low sexual energy, and poor circulation.
  • CORDUS improves the body’s general organism by effectively preventing disorders of the locomotive system in adults and children.

Contraindications

  • Specific and non-specific infectious processes in the spine and joints (osteomyelitis of the spine, tuberculous spondylitis, ankylosing spondylitis).
  • Tumors along the spine and spinal cord, malignant neoplasms in any location.
  • Recent traumatic spinal injuries and severe head injuries.
  • Recent surgery and injuries (less than 3 months) of the spine and internal organs.
  • Disorders of the brain or vascular circulation, cerebral infarction, atherothrombosis, occlusion of the vertebral artery, etc.
  • Complete lack of movement of the joints (ankylosis).
  • Serious diseases of the internal organs.
  • Epilepsy.
  • Pregnancy: The special indication is to use the device exclusively in the cervical and dorsal area (above the shoulder blades).
  • If back MASSAGES are FORBIDDEN, do not use CORDUS.

See other limitations and important indications in SPECIAL DIAGNOSTICS or SPECIAL CASES.

Special and limited diagnoses

General indications:

(1): Additionally, make the therapeutic exercises indicated for your diagnosis

(2): If any point causes you are in a lot of pain when using CORDUS, stop using the device in this area for 5-10 sessions. Place it 3 cm (1.2 inches) above or below that point.

(3): The use of Sacrus is important to increase the efficacy

(4): For certain diagnoses, the specific indication for therapy is not to place CORDUS in the affected area, but to apply it to nearby areas and others. By improving these areas, it is possible to give benefits to the damaged area because the spine is an interconnected system.

(5): When feeling relief, do not increase physical loads for at least 2 months.

ARTHRITIS / ARTHROSIS: Always adjust the pressure to be moderate *. During and after the use of CORDUS, it is normal to feel the therapeutic effect (pressure or slight discomfort) of the device on the muscles of the affected area. If you feel discomfort in the vertebra, not in muscle, avoid applying the device in this area for a month and use it where the pressure is bearable. It is recommended to apply anti-inflammatory measures. See (2) (3) (4) and (5).

CERVICALGIA: The first three sessions apply the "Basic Therapy", then additionally apply to each vertebra in the cervical area and the trapezius area. See (1) (2) (3) and (5).

COXARTHROSIS: It helps as long as there is no osteoporosis. Do not use CORDUS on the affected area, place it 3 cm above or below it and the others. See (2) (3) (4) and (5).

VERTEBRAE DISPLACEMENT: see SPONDYLOLISTESIS.

SPLICED, CLOSED OR JOINED DISCS: Place CORDUS 3 cm (1.2 inches) above or below the zone and on the others. Do not use CORDUS on the affected area. See (3) (4) and (5).

SCIATIC PAIN (HIPS AND FEET): Apply the basic points and after three sessions, apply CORDUS in more points (vertebrae) of the lumbar area and in "POINT *" of the sacrum. Request the integral therapy guide at cordus.com. Complement with SACRUS. See (1) (2) (3) and (5).

SHOULDER PAIN: same use as in cervicalgia.

SCOLIOSIS: Always adjust the pressure to be moderate *.
CORDUS must be placed in the same direction as the axis of the spine (See Fig. 1).

- Curvatures from 20 to 50 degrees: avoid placing CORDUS on the vertebrae involved in the most closed part of the curvature, where the curvature changes direction (See “A” in Fig.1).

- Curvatures of more than 50 degrees: the therapy can be made exclusively by a medical professional of the spine.
It is always advisable to supplement therapy with SACRUS. See (1) (2) (3)(4) and (5).

SPONDYLOLISTHESIS, LISTHESIS AND RETROLISTHESIS:Under the affected area put a rolled towel as support. Do not use Cordus on the affected area. For grades 1 and 2 place CORDUS 3 cm (1.2 inches) above or below the zone and the others. For grades 3 and 4 apply at a distance of more than 5 cm (2 inches) from the area. See (1) (2) (3) (4) and (5).

ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS: CORDUS can give relief, it can be applied up to twice a day, do not apply the device where the vertebrae have already merged (joined). See (1) (2) (3) and (5).

STENOSIS: During the first month of using CORDUS, place it in areas without stenosis. At the end of the month, apply directly to the damaged area moderately *. See (1) (2) (3) (4) and (5).

FIBROMYALGIA: Use CORDUS as a complement to your therapy recommended by your doctor, try to do it at night moderately * and in a quiet environment.

FIBROSIS: If the condition is in the muscles near the vertebrae, avoid placing CORDUS directly on the damaged area. See (2) (3) (4) and (5).

FRACTURE OF THE VERTEBRA: CORDUS cannot be placed in the fractured area. You can use it in close areas, 9 cm (3.5 inches) above or below. See (2) (3) (4) and (5).

GONARTROSIS: In addition to the basic points, it is recommended to focus on the lumbar area (each of its vertebrae), sacrum, and coccyx. Place CORDUS 3 cm (1.2 inches) above or below the area and the others. Do not use CORDUS on the affected area. See (2) (3) (4) and (5).

VERTEBRAL HEMANGIOMA (more than 5 mm [0.19685 inches]): Do not use Cordus on the affected area. See (2) (3) (4) and (5).

HERNIATED DISCS: It is always important to supplement therapy with SACRUS. See (1) (2) (3) (4) and (5).

From the sixth therapy, CORDUS can be applied directly to the hernia area. Considering the intensity of the pain **.

- More than 8 mm (Up to 0.314961 inches). (Unbroken annulus fibrosus). It is suggested to apply CORDUS in the surrounding areas for one or two months. After it is recommended to do a study to verify the status of the hernia, if the size of the hernia was reduced to 8 mm or less, it can be started to apply in the hernia area. Considering the intensity of the pain **.

- Broken annulus fibrosus. Place CORDUS 9 cm (3.5 inches) above or below the area and on the others. Do not use CORDUS on the affected area.

In the case of herniated disc surgery, CORDUS is used to improve the rehabilitation process after 1 month of surgery, at a distance of more than 8 cm (3.5 inches) from the surgery area. After 3 months use Cordus at a distance of more than 3 cm (1.2 inches) from the surgery area.

** Pain intensity: AVOID applying CORDUS in the area with severe pain UNTIL reducing the intensity of pain by using the device in surrounding areas and applying anti-inflammatory measures

HYPERLORDOSIS: If you feel very little pressure due to the curvature, place CORDUS on a book to increase the height. It is recommended to supplement with SACRUS. See (1) (2) (3) (4) and (5).

Use of CORDUS in particular cases

SPINE SURGERY: CORDUS can be used six months after undergoing surgery, starting moderately *.

DIABETES Type 1: The CORDUS application normally reduces the glucose level, so we suggest measuring your level before and after the session to keep an adequate control. Ask your doctor whether or not your medication needs to be lowered, as the use of CORDUS or SACRUS may have a positive impact on lowering your glucose level. We suggest you alternate a CORDUS day and a SACRUS day.

PREGNANCY: Use the device only in the cervical and dorsal area (above the shoulder blades).

HYPERTENSION: In some cases, the use of CORDUS in the cervical and thoracic areas can cause anxiety and increase pressure. We recommend starting the use of CORDUS the first month in the lumbar-sacral area, where it will provide improvements in blood circulation. If necessary, use moderately * and monitor your blood pressure.

HYPOTENSION: People with low blood pressure may feel dizzy at the end of the session. It is normal. For this reason, it is advisable to use the device before sleeping.

PACEMAKER: CORDUS has neodymium magnets. For your safety, we recommend removing them before using the device.

HEART PROBLEMS: If massages are not forbidden, CORDUS should only be applied to the lower back and tailbone.

If you have any questions write to us at contacto@cordus.com

Preparing for a session with CORDUS

The session can be done on the bed, in a high-back chair, or on the floor. Choose the way that fits you best. In all the options you will get good results.

Before starting the therapy, you can prepare the supports, they will help you reduce the pressure that CORDUS provides: three or four books of different thickness, pillows or towels, and a blanket to avoid the cold. Set an alarm so you don't fall asleep. If you will make therapy on the floor, use a folded blanket or non-slip mat; be sure to avoid cold drafts in the room; it is advisable to warm up your back before the session by spending a few minutes sitting in the chair, lying in bed or using a warm compress.

Don't rush, take your time to learn how to properly make your therapies. The use of CORDUS should be relaxed and pleasant. Avoid talking, using a cell phone or computer, watching television, or other activities.

IMPORTANT: If the damaged area shows inflammation, deflate it before using the device.

Breathing and Relaxation

During the use of CORDUS, deep relaxation and breathing with the diaphragm are necessary (the muscle “work” or movement is focused on the lower lungs).

Concentrate your attention on the breath and the focus of tension, relax mentally this point.

Inhale calmly with the lower part of the lungs, hold for a few seconds (smile within yourself and give thanks), while exhaling, mentally direct this positive feeling to the point where CORDUS is.

It is not about filling the lungs like a balloon (this causes stress), or “holding your breath”, it is not about competing with ourselves. Proper breathing brings pleasure.

In 1 or 2 minutes, you will notice how the pressure decreases and disappears, as the stressed muscle resists the effect of the device during the first minutes, giving way to the relaxation phase.

IMPORTANT: How to adjust the pressure?

During therapy, you need to feel pressure, not pain or discomfort.

- If you feel discomfort or pain, reduce the weight on the device by lifting your body using supports (books, towels, pillows) or by placing a towel on the device.

NOTE: If during the session a strong discomfort appears at any CORDUS application point, move it up or down a little.

  • If any area causes a lot of pain, avoid using CORDUS in that area for a period of 5 to 10 sessions. Use Cordus in nearby areas.
  • If at the end of the therapy, at some point it is difficult for you to get up (usually this happens during the first sessions of the thoracic correction), you can roll to your side and thus remove the device.
  • Start working on the most problematic areas in an armchair and the other areas do it lying down.

Recommendation: If you have a weak back, start your therapies in your bed or chair and gradually increase the intensity of the exercises. This way you will also get great results.

If you have severe pain or serious problem in a vertebra, it is recommended not to place the device in that area during the first 5 to 10 sessions, then start to place it moderately *.

IF YOU FEEL LOW PRESSURE, place a support under the CORDUS (notebook, folded towel) until enough pressure is felt.

To decrease pressure, place some support under other areas of the back.

To soften the contact, place a folded towel over CORDUS (if necessary).

To increase pressure, place a towel or notebook under the CORDUS.

Using towels or pillows, you can reduce pressure and be more comfortable.

Make sure you align your body correctly.

*Moderate way

Using CORDUS in a moderate way means regulating the pressure by using supports or by applying it on a bed or high-back chair so that you do not feel discomfort.

You should feel tolerable pressure, never pain.

  • Using supports you can adjust the pressure, when it decreases you can remove them slowly (remove one or two books or place a towel of less thickness).
  • Make sure that the spine is right in the center of CORDUS, nothing happens if you vary the location a little in the points recommended in this manual, that is, you can place it a little higher or lower without any problem.
  • If you have a condition that causes a lot of pain, do not place the device in the area where it originates. For the first 10 sessions, place it 3 to 4 cm (1.2 to 1.6 inches) above or below that point.
  • If any point causes you a lot of pain when using Cordus, suspend the use of the device in this area for the first 5-10 sessions, place it 3 cm (1.2 inches) above or below that point.
  • Get help from another person in case of weakness or obesity, or use it on your bed, on a soft surface, or sitting in a high-backed chair (the results will be just as effective, although it will require a larger number of sessions).
  • For greater effectiveness we recommend using CORDUS simultaneously with SACRUS, adding special exercises according to your diagnosis, and taking supplements to improve cartilage. Consult your doctor.

Frequency of use

  • CORDUS is normally used every third day, for 3 to 4 minutes at each point (except in contraindicated areas).
  • A basic cycle consists of 10 sessions. After finishing a cycle, we recommend a rest interval of one week. Repeat the cycle, or use it once or twice a week.
  • After 15 sessions, you can use it daily if you feel it necessary. If your back feels a little pain the next day, do not use the device for 1 to 2 days.

CORDUS basic therapy

Regardless of the location of your ailment in the spine, we recommend that you apply all the basic points indicated here (except contraindicated areas).

After 3 or 5 sessions, you can apply not only on the basic points but also on any other point of the spine (except contraindicated areas).

The session can be performed on the floor, on a bed or a sofa / recliner.
Cordus basic points
Side C: Cervical
Side C: Cervical
Side D: Dorsal – Coxis
Side D: Dorsal – Coxis
Side L: Lumbar – Sacrum
Side L: Lumbar – Sacrum

Can I use Cordus and Sacrus at the same time?

The use of both devices is recommended to increase the therapeutic effect of the method. First, apply Sacrus therapy in the sacrum area, then apply Cordus therapy starting with the lumbar point closest to the sacrum and working upwards.

The session can be done on the floor, on the bed, or on a sofa/armchair with an inclined backrest.

BASIC STRUCTURE OF CORDUS USE

CAUTION! Do not use CORDUS without first reading the PREVIOUS PAGES in this manual.

Cervical Area

Point 1: Between C2-C3 vertebrae

CORDUS is positioned transversely to the axis of the spine with side C under the skull (picture 1) If you feel CORDUS slides or changes position, hold it with your hands (picture 2.1) or place a towel in the gap between CORDUS and your neck (pics 2.2 and 2.3).

In case of discomfort, you can place a towel over the CORDUS to decrease the pressure (pic 2.4).

CORDUS is positioned transversely to the axis of the spine, placing C side beneath the skull If you feel that CORDUS slides or changes position, try holding it directly with your hands If you feel discomfort, you can place a towel on top of the CORDUS to reduce pressure
Point 2: Between C5-C6 vertebrae

To find this point, locate vertebra 7 (which is the protruding bone) with your finger and place CORDUS a little up (side C). If you feel little pressure, clasp your hands and place them under your head, putting your chin to your chest without making an effort and without lifting your head (pic 3), you can also give the CORDUS height, using a towel or notebook under it (pic 4).

The general recommendation for cervical area: For greater depth in the cervical area, after 3 or 5 sessions, you can make two short and smooth half turns with your head, one to the right and the other to the left, keeping the axis of the spine (above CORDUS). At the limit point of movement or where you feel discomfort, hold that position for the 20s and return your head to the central position.

REACTIVATION of muscle tone:

Remove CORDUS, bend your knees and put your hands clasped behind your head, inhale and when exhaling bring your chin to your chest with 20/30% effort; stay in this position for 8 to 10 seconds. Hold your breath! (pic 5); When finished, slowly return to the starting position. Repeat the same with your legs stretched out.

 In case of feeling low pressure, clasp your hands and place them behind your head, lowering your chin to the chest without making great effort and without lifting the head you can also raise the height of the CORDUS by sliding a towel or notepad beneath it

DORSAL AREA (THORACIC): Side “D”

IMPORTANT: While using CORDUS you should not experience pain or discomfort, just pressure. If any point causes you too much discomfort, even by placing supports, avoid it for the first 5 or 10 sessions and use CORDUS a little above or below the discomfort area.

Point 3: Between T2-T3 vertebrae

Place the “D” side of CORDUS above the shoulder blades, 4 to 5 cm (1.6 to 2 inches) below the C7 vertebra (the vertebra that aligns at shoulder height) (pic 6). For people with low flexibility we suggest lying down in the initial position and placing CORDUS in the previous point (2 cervical) with the “D” side up. Then raise your torso until you can use your hand to slide CORDUS approximately 6 cm (2.4 inches) towards your feet and lie down again leaning on your elbows until you feel your spine centered. It is recommended to use a support of approx. 3 or 4 cm (1.2 to 1.6 inches) high (towel, pillow, book) under the head. To give more pressure, you can stretch your arms behind or under your head (pic 7) or leave them at your sides. If the pressure is too much, roll up a thick towel and place it next to the CORDUS to reduce the weight of the head (pic 7.1)

Place the “D” side of CORDUS above the shoulder blades, 4 to 5 cm (1.6 to 2 inches) below the vertebra C7 (the vertebra that aligns at the height of the shoulders) To give more pressure you can stretch your arms behind or below your head
Point 4: Between T8-T9 or T9-T10 vertebrae

Apply the “D” side of CORDUS below the shoulder blades (pic 8). Most people have little flexibility in this area so we recommend raising your knees. Raise your hips and place some support of 5-6 cm (2-2.4 inches) height below your hips. Place CORDUS on the “D” side below the shoulder blades (approx. In the projection of the pit of the stomach) and lower your hips slowly. You can adjust the CORDUS pressure by adding or subtracting height to the stand. In order not to feel discomfort due to the imbalance of the body, caused by “too high” of your hips (more than 8 cm [3.1 inches]), add a support under the shoulder blades (folded towel), with this you will obtain a more horizontal position (pic 9) or use CORDUS in an armchair (pic 8.1).

The general recommendation for the thoracic area:

If a support is used under the sacrum, add a rolled towel for additional support under the lower back (pic 8).

ou can adjust the pressure and height of the CORDUS by adding or removing supports
REACTIVATION of muscle tone:

When finishing work in the thoracic area, remove CORDUS. To reactivate muscle tone in this area, stretch your legs and arms behind your head and with an effort of 20-30%. Hold the stretch throughout the body for 10-15 seconds. Hold your breath! (pic 10).

Correct position of using CORDUS

Remember that the correct position for CORDUS is a triangle with the peak upwards and the spine must fit between the ends.

Remove CORDUS after treating the thoracic zone. In order to reactivate the muscle tone within this area, stretch out your legs and expand your arms behind the head

LUMBAR AREA: Side “L”

(** D Side for people with height less than 150 cm [59.0551 inches])

No matter where you have the condition, complete your session with CORDUS, from the cervical area to the tailbone area.

IMPORTANT: While using CORDUS you should not experience pain or discomfort, just pressure. You can control the pressure that the device provides on your back with the help of supports. If any point causes you too much discomfort, even by placing supports, avoid it for the first 5 or 10 sessions and use CORDUS a few inches up or down from the discomfort zone.

Wherever your condition is located, complete your session with CORDUS from the cervical zone to the coccyx region.

IMPORTANT: During the use of CORDUS, you should not experience pain nor discomfort, only pressure. You can control and regulate the pressure that is being exerted on your back with the device by incorporating the aid of supports. If a certain point causes you extreme pain or discomfort, proceed to use CORDUS on a couch / high-backed chair for the first 5 to 10 sessions.

Point 5: Between L1-L2 vertebrae

To unload the lower back, place CORDUS on the “L” side of the lower back of the spine. Raise the hips, hold the CORDUS by the ends with both hands and place it on the upper part of the lower back (approx. 1 cm [0.4 inches] above the projection of the navel).

Lie back on CORDUS and relax. In case of feeling too much pressure, use supports under the sacrum (pic 11)

When you can identify Point 6, lower your hips so that your buttocks touch the floor and feel an arch form. The glutes should ALWAYS be supported. In case of feeling too much pressure, apply supports under the sacrum (see pic 11).

In order to unload the lumbar zone, place CORDUS on the “L” side of the lower back of the spine. Raise your hips and hold the CORDUS with both hands to place it in the upper part of the lumbar region (approx. 1cm [0.4 inches] above belly button).
Point 6: Between L4-L5 vertebrae

Place the “L” side of CORDUS just above the start of the sacrum. To find this segment (pic 12), look with your thumbs for the two large hip bones and place the “L” side of CORDUS a little above this area. Or at the end of Point 5 therapy, raise your hips and slide CORDUS 10 cm (4 inches) in a straight line toward your feet so that it is on the indicated segment. If when placing the device, you feel that the conical tips stick directly into the sacrum; raise CORDUS a little higher to avoid this.

The general recommendation for the lower back: Normally in the lumbar area when bending the knees you feel more pressure. If you need more pressure, place your feet on a chair or “lift” CORDUS by putting something under the device. More precisely, to reach the intervertebral area, bend your legs (pic 12.1) or place them on a chair (pic 12.2).

Concentrate your attention on the breath and the focus of tension, relax mentally this point.

Remember to place and keep CORDUS at each point for 3 to 4 minutes.

Place CORDUS just above the sacrum (L4 – L5) If you need even more pressure, place your feet on top of a chair or “raise” the CORDUS by placing something beneath the device
Point *Sciatic (Side L):

CORDUS is applied at this point when the person has sciatic, hip, and leg pain. Before placing CORDUS at this point, roll up a towel and place it under your lower back. Place CORDUS on its “L” side in the middle of the buttocks, where the sacrum transforms into the coccyx (pic 13). If this position causes you discomfort, try sliding the CORDUS inch by inch downwards until you find a position that does not cause discomfort.

Don’t try to endure the pain, find the right position. Stretch your legs.

To soften the contact you can put a towel on CORDUS (pic 13.1) or bend your knees.

Keep your hands by your sides.
Point 7 Coccyx (Side D):

Place the “D” side of CORDUS under the coccyx (last vertebra of the spine) and straighten the legs (pic 14).

Reactivation of muscle tone: remove CORDUS. To reactivate muscle tone in this area, bend your knees and grab them above or below with your hands (pic 15). Hold your knees and try to push them forward without letting go, use 20 or 30% effort, hold 10 sec. Hold your breath! A CORDUS session ends here. Quietly get up on your side.

Remove CORDUS when finalizing the therapy on the lumbar-sacrum -coccyx zone. In order to reactivate the muscle tone within this area, bend your knees and hold them with your hands from above and below. (Photo 15) Hold your breath! This is the end of the CORDUS session. Calmly lean on your side and stand up.

If you suffer from sciatica, hip or leg pain, we recommend that you finish the session with the following exercise: lie down with your legs stretched out, bend one knee, inhale and as you exhale, bring your knee closer to your chest with a 20-30% effort force, keep your knee in this position, and continue to inhale and exhale. Each time you exhale try to bring your knee closer and closer to the chest. Repeat the same cycle for two minutes on each leg. Try to keep your head laid back flat on the surface and your other leg completely straightened out. (Photo 16)

Coloca el lado D de CORDUS debajo del coxis (última vértebra de la columna) y estira las piernas Remove CORDUS when finalizing the therapy on the lumbar-sacrum -coccyx zone

For SCIATIC PAIN or discomfort in the hips and legs: We recommend ending the session with the following exercise: Lying down with your legs straight, bend one knee, inhale and exhale with an effort of 20-30%. Close the knee to the chest, keep the knee at that point and continue inhaling and exhaling. Each time you exhale try to bring your knee closer to your chest, do this for two minutes for each leg. Keep your head close to the surface and the other leg straight (pic 16).

Sacro / Coxis area

When you finish using CORDUS, for greater therapeutic effect, it is recommended to avoid standing, so as not to give vertical load to the spine, in case you have to move to another bedroom, lean on the walls or nearby furniture.

I don’t have back pain, why use Cordus?

Not having pain in your back does not mean that you are free of problems. According to medical statistics, 70% of people who have problems with hernias, wasting, spasms, etc. in the back do not experience pain and can live like this for years and not realize it, until the discomfort arises in an advanced stage, being necessary, in some cases, surgery.

The quality of the deep intervertebral muscles is that they cannot relax on their own after being tense. All overloads, bad emotions, stress, fear, etc., cause muscle spasms and accumulate in these muscles since childhood. These spasms must be treated so that they do not become serious diseases and do not reduce the good performance of the immune system.

Example: We all use to brush our teeth daily, but we do not have the same habit of taking care of the spine, although this is the most important system in the body. CORDUS is that “brush” your spine needs. In the beginning, it is recommended to carry out 1-2 courses to treat the spasms accumulated silently in your back, later use the device once or twice a week. In addition, CORDUS can be your best anti-stress ally.

CORDUS as a problem detector

If when using the device you experience discomfort in any area of the spine or other part of the body, it means that CORDUS has detected the origin of a problem.

The space at the junction of Cordus molds is part of its design. When lying on the device, a pressure is generated, causing a slight separation or a snap, this is normal. This happens when the device is adjusted on the user’s back and then returns to its original condition.

Diseases in internal organs

CORDUS is an effective complement in the treatment of diseases of the internal organs.

Each vertebra in the spine is connected to a specific internal organ. The signal from the brain passes to a certain vertebra and then reaches the indicated organ and vice versa.

If strong muscle spasms appear, the correct communication between the brain and the internal organ will be affected, over time the organ will begin to fail and hurt. In these cases the consumption of drugs will not help, since the root of the problem is in the spine.

CORDUS removes deep muscle spasms, which helps regain motor skills and connection in the spine.

By freeing your spine from muscle spasms, you will improve energy flow and your immune system.

CORDUS didn’t help you? Have you not felt any improvement?

Less than 1% of our customers fail to obtain results. According to our research, this is related to:

  • Incorrect use of the device, consequence of not reading the manual carefully.
  • Not having a correct diagnosis.
  • Not previously having reduced the inflammation in the area to be worked on.
  • Not being constant in your CORDUS therapies.
  • Stop using the device before seeing immediate results.

If CORDUS does not help you to solve your condition quickly, it may be because more sessions are necessary for your diagnosis. For other diagnoses such as degenerative ones, the device does not cure the condition, but it can help stop the progression of the disease, which is also a good result. In these cases, we recommend that you do not suspend the use of the device, but rather complement it with other types of therapies. Ask your doctor.

The constant use of the device will improve your spine and the rest of your body. It’s like having your massage therapist, chiropractor, and acupuncturist at home.

If you got good results with CORDUS, keep using it. Relax with CORDUS at least once a week. The bad habits of daily life cause the appearance of muscle spasms that cause a lot of ailments or conditions. Make CORDUS part of your life.

USE SACRUS: THE CORDUS COMPLEMENT FOR FASTER RESULTS

SACRUS is a Russian patented device (from the same inventors of CORDUS) that eliminates the fundamental cause of spinal dysfunction (the micro-displacement of the sacrum and base of the skull, and the tension in diaphragm). Most people have the sacrum or the atlas deviated because of a sedentary life, a trauma during pregnancy or at birth, and falls in childhood.

The micro-displacement of the sacrum or atlas provokes a constant and strong tension in the spine that over the years unleashes serious conditions such as herniated discs, sciatica, scoliosis, wear of intervertebral disc, knee and hip pain, among others.

Treatment of these conditions will not be effective if the origin is not attacked, which is often linked to the bad position of the sacrum and atlas.

Through mild osteopathic unloading, SACRUS restores the functioning of these centers.

Currently, there are no other specialized tools to correct the sacrum, making SACRUS a unique device of its kind.

CORDUS and SACRUS complement each other: it is better to use both devices because the effect will be more positive for certain problems, increasing the effectiveness from 30 to 50%.

Use CORDUS and SACRUS to provide high-level treatment to the entire spine in a very easy and accessible way.
