The System-Loc LSO provides immediate pain relief for a variety of conditions. This rigid spinal orthosis protects soft tissues, reduces flexion and rotation and decreases forces on the discs. The ambulatory traction and hydrostatic lift provided by the System-Loc helps alleviate pain and increases rehabilitation by providing effective stabilization and unloading weight and pressure off of the spine. Rigid anterior and posterior panels stabilize the spine and restrict range of motion. The V-shaped anterior panel provides abdominal compression and creates "hydrostatic lift" to help relieve the load and stress on the spine.
