If you have back massages prohibited do not use SACRUS.
You can also consult other limitations within the sections of SPECIAL DIAGNOSTICS or PARTICULAR CASES.
For certain diagnosis, it is recommended NOT to place SACRUS directly on the damaged area; in these cases, the correct method of use is to avoid the affected areas by simply placing the device along the rest of the undamaged regions of your back. Since the spine is a connected system; any improvement gained within the structure of your spine will give benefits to other areas.
ARTHRITIS / ARTHRHOIS: Do not apply the device directly on affected areas, instead position it 3 cm (1.2 inches) above or below this point. We recommend that our clients take anti-inflammatory medicines and undergo magnetic therapy at least twice a year.
SPASTIC BRAIN PARALYSIS IN CHILDREN: In mild cases, it may complement other treatments.
CERVICALGIA: During the first three sessions, place SACRUS on the basic points of your spine. You will then concentrate more attention to the cervical and trapezius zones (apply to every vertebra in each of these zones).
COXARTHROSIS: Do not apply SACRUS to damaged areas.
VERTEBRAE DISPLACEMENT: Avoid placing the device directly on damaged regions.
Place SACRUS directly to areas close the problem, 3 cm (1.2 inches) above or below the affected area.
SPLICED, CLOSED OR JOINED DISCS: Avoid this damaged zone and work nearby areas, 3 cm (1.2 inches) above or below.
SCIATIC PAIN (HIPS AND FEET): Execute a basic discharge of the sacrum. It is recommended to complement your therapy with the CORDUS device.
SHOULDER PAIN: Same use as in cervicalgia. Also, apply SACRUS to the zone below the shoulder blades.
KNEE PAIN: Concentrate most of the therapy to the sacrum area and remember to also include additional points applied to below the knees.
SCOLIOSIS: Use SACRUS moderately*, by incorporating the use of supports. Execute recommended exercises to treat adequately this disease. Only to treat 1st and 2nd degree.
SPONDILOLISTESIS, LISTESIS AND RETROLISTESIS: Do not apply SACRUS to damaged zones. Only place the device on nearby areas, 3 centimeters (1.2 inches) above or below the affected region.
ANQUILOSANT SPONDILITIS: SACRUS can provide relief and it can be applied up to twice a day. Do not apply the device where the vertebrae have already merged (joined).
STENOSIS: SACRUS will help remove muscle spasms in areas close to the damaged region, instantly reducing de pressure of intervertebral discs and effectively decelerating the stenosis process. During the first month of using SACRUS, apply it to the areas without stenosis. At the end of the month, apply it directly but moderately to the damaged area *
FIBROMYALGIA: Use SACRUS as an additional complement to your doctor’s recommended therapy. Use the device at a moderate pace during the night hours within a quiet environment.
FIBROSIS: If the condition is determined to be within the muscles near the vertebrae, avoid applying SACRUS directly to the damaged area. Place SACRUS on nearby areas, 3 centimeters (1.2 inches) above or below the affected region.
DISC FRACTURE: SACRUS cannot be applied to a fractured zone. You can use it on nearby areas, 9 cm (3.5 inches) above or below the affected region.
GONARTROSIS: Avoid applying device directly to damaged areas. Place it on nearby segments, 3 cm (1.2 inches) above or below.
HERNIATED DISCS: For basic application, it is recommended to complement your therapy with the CORDUS device.
If the fibrous ring is ruptured, SACRUS will not be able to help you. If you need to use it to treat other problems along the spine, apply 9 cm (3.5 inches) above or below the area with the ruptured fibrous ring.
HYPERLORDOSIS: For basic application, it is recommended to complement your therapy with the CORDUS device.
LUMBALGIA: For basic application, it is recommended to complement your therapy with the CORDUS device.
OSTEOARTHRITIS: Do not apply SACRUS directly to the damaged area. We advise customers to use the device after taking inflammatory medicaments. (Consult with your specialist.)
OSTEOCONDROSIS: Apply basic therapy.
OSTEOOPHYTES: If you feel pain while applying SACRUS to a certain point, avoid the affected region and proceed to treat the surrounding areas.
OSTEOPENIA (PRE-OSTEOPOROSIS): SACRUS can be applied in a moderate* manner.
OSTEOPOROSIS: SACRUS should only be applied to areas not affected by this disease.
FOOT ASLEEP: For basic application, it is recommended to complement your therapy with the CORDUS device.
POLYOMYELITIS: Use SACRUS in a moderate* manner by incorporating supports. Perform the recommended exercises for this disease. Only for 1st and 2nd degree.
RADICULITIS – RADICULOPATHY: For basic application, it is recommended to complement your therapy with the CORDUS device.
ROTOESCOLIOSIS: Use SACRUS in a moderate* manner by incorporating supports. Perform the recommended exercises for this disease. Only for 1st and 2nd degree.
DISPLACED VERTEBRAE: Avoid placing directly on the damaged area. Apply SACRUS to areas close to the problem, 3 cm (1.2 inches) above or below the affected region.
FUSED VERTEBRAES (joined): Avoid the damaged area, use 3 cm (1.2 inches) above or below.
Use of SACRUS in particular cases
SPINAL SURGERY: SACRUS can be used six months after undergoing a surgical procedure. Remember to start moderately *.
DIABETES Type 1: The application of SACRUS normally reduces the glucose levels. Therefore, we suggest that you measure your level before and after each session is completed, in order to carry out an adequate control. Talk to your doctor about whether or not you should reduce your medication based on your continuous use of SACRUS or CORDUS, since these devices might have a positive impact on reducing your glucose level. We suggest alternating the daily use of each device, one day SACRUS and another day CORDUS.
PREGNANCY: Use the device only on the cervical and dorsal areas (above the shoulder blades).
HYPERTENSION: In some cases, the use of SACRUS in the cervical and thoracic areas, can cause anxiety and raise the pressure. We recommend using SACRUS during the first month on the lumbar-sacral area, where it will provide improvements to blood circulation. If necessary use it moderately* and keep control of your blood pressure.
HYPOTENSION: Since people with low pressure can feel a little dizzy when finalizing each session, we highly recommend our clients to use the device before going to bed.
PACEMAKER: SACRUS has neodymium magnets. For safety reasons, we strongly recommend removing them before starting to use the SACRUS.
HEART PROBLEMS: If you do not have massages prohibited, SACRUS should only be placed on the lower back and coccyx areas.
We suggest getting an x-ray of your spine and having these results revised by a doctor. This way you will know the contraindications based on the condition of your spine and diagnosis.
