- Inflate Thoratrac fully and place it under your chest while lying face down. Move it slightly to affect the area in your back that is tightest.
- If Thoratrac feels too hard, deflate to comfort. It is important to keep your head straight so that the vertebrae are not turned while they are being pushed back.
- If comfort necessitates deflation to the point that more chest elevation is needed, an article such as a book may be placed under the Thoratrac. If your forehead does not reach the ground, you may place a rolled up towel or other article under your forehead.
- Go slowly. Changes should be subtle enough so that it may take 1-2 weeks for a noticeable difference to appear in your daily level of back pain or tension.
- Use for a maximum of five minutes a day. Overuse may lead to chest irritation and stress where the ribs meet the sternum.
- Thoratrac is not recommended for people with heart, artery, lung, or bone weakening conditions.
- If Thoratrac causes undue pain or discomfort when uses as directed, discontinue use and consult a doctor familiar with the spine.
