ReActiv8

Do You Suffer from Lower Back Pain?

Are you suffering from chronic low back pain (CLBP) caused by an injury or stress on the tissues surrounding your spine? At Cantor Spine Center, Drs. Giuffrida, Westerhaus, and Chhatlani specialize in diagnosing and treating mechanical chronic low back pain. Mechanical chronic low back pain results from an injury or stress on the tissues surrounding the spine. This includes soft tissues, muscles, bones, and joints. Oftentimes, this type of pain is due to impaired neuromuscular control and neural inhibition of the multifidus, which is the largest stabilizing muscle in your back.

What is Mechanical Chronic Low Back Pain?

Mechanical chronic low back pain results from an injury or stress on the tissues surrounding the spine. This includes soft tissues, muscles, bones, and joints. This type of pain is often due to impaired muscle control and neural inhibition of the multifidus, the largest stabilizing muscle in your back. When this neuromuscular inhibition occurs, there can be a misalignment of the spine, causing uncontrolled loading and pains. ReActiv8 overcomes neural inhibition and allows the body to regain control of the multifidus. This provides functional lumbar stability and reduces mechanically based pain.

What is ReActiv8?

ReActiv8 is implanted underneath the skin during a minimally-invasive outpatient procedure.

  • A generator is connected to two electrical leads, which are positioned to stimulate the nerves that control your multifidus muscle.
  • You control your twice-daily, 30-minute therapy sessions, which can feel like a deep tissue massage.

Is ReActiv8 Right for You?

  • Have experienced back pain for more than 3 months?
  • Back pain is worse than leg pain?
  • Physical Therapy and medications have not provided relief?

If you answer yes to questions above, ask our physicians if you have multifidus dysfunction.

Treat the Cause. Not the Symptoms.

With ReActiv8, we can interrupt your lower back’s cycle of pain, degeneration, and loss of function. People experiencing Chronic Low Back Pain have historically had few options: pain medications, physical therapy, and in certain cases, intensive surgery and rehabilitation. These efforts can fail to give many patients meaningful, lasting relief. ReActiv8 is designed to address the underlying cause that can lead to mechanical CLBP and can provide patients a powerful solution that leverages the body’s restorative mechanisms to reduce low back pain.

Now you may be able to address your CLBP with ReActiv8, a new and unique restorative therapy that stimulates the nerves of the muscle directly responsible for stabilizing your lumbar spine.
