SACRUS Contraindications

CORDUS has some contraindications like many other methods used for the body (massage, swimming, acupuncture, etc.). In most cases, if you are able to apply massages you can use SACRUS, because it has contraindications similar to therapeutic massages. SACRUS has significantly fewer contraindications than chiropractic and other similar therapies.

We can divide the contraindications into absolute and conditional.

The Absolute Contraindications are usually very serious health conditions: such as cancer, infectious diseases, etc.

The Conditional Contraindications are when the device cannot be applied in a specific area, but it can be applied in other areas of the spine.
