Do you suffer from lower back pain?

Select Your Territory

Mechanical chronic low back pain (CLBP) results from an injury or stress on the tissues surrounding the spine, including soft tissues, muscles, bones, and joints.

Often, this type of pain is due to impaired muscle control and neural inhibition of the multifidus, which is the largest stabilizing muscle in your back.

Back pain is worse than leg pain

Physical Therapy and medications have not provided relief

Ask your doctor if you have multifidus dysfunction

Mechanical Chronic Low Back Pain

Mechanical chronic low back pain results from an injury or stress on the tissues surrounding the spine, including 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 pain.

ReActiv8 overcomes neural inhibition and allows the body to regain control of the multifidus, providing functional lumbar stability and reducing mechanically based pain.

Interrupt your lower back’s cycle of pain, degeneration, and loss of function.

Like many CLBP patients, you may have suffered from debilitating back pain for many years and nothing has provided you with lasting or meaningful relief.

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.

Treat the cause

Restorative treatments focus on improving function for patients by addressing the underlying cause.

not the symptoms.

Palliative treatments focus on blocking pain through Spinal Cord Stimulation, oral medication, injections, or burning nerves.

Think Restorative Sooner

ReActiv8: A new treatment option designed to
restore neuromuscular control of the spine.

Control

Of neural signals activating
your multifidus muscle

Function

Of the multifidus muscle to
provide stability to the spine

Stability

Of the spine to reduce pain

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.

Long-Term Clinical Outcomes

Pain and Function Improvements

8 out of 10 patients reported substantial improvements in pain and/or function

Opioid Reduction

7 out of 10 patients voluntarily eliminated or reduced their opioid intake*

*Percent of patients that were on opioids at baseline: (1-Year= 31/65), (2-Year= 34/57), (3-Year= 36/51).

Clinical study data show that patients experience progressive long-term improvements in pain and function, over time, demonstrating a durable, consistent, and restorative result.*

Is ReActiv8 right for you?

Complete this survey to see if you’re a good fit

Take the first step towards finding a doctor and determining if ReActiv8 is right for you. By answering the following questions, we can provide you with general guidance on whether you may be a candidate for ReActiv8.

"*" indicates required fields

Have you experienced back pain for more than 3 months?*
Is your low back pain worse than your leg pain?*
If you were to rate the level of your day-to-day low back pain on a scale of 0-10, with 0 being very little pain, and 10 being the worst possible pain, how would you rate your average low back pain over the last 7 days?*
Have you tried prescription medication or attempted physical therapy for your low back pain?*
Are you willing to consider a surgical procedure for your low back pain?*
Have you previously had lumbar decompression or lumbar fusion surgery?*

Frequently Asked Questions

What makes ReActiv8 unique?

ReActiv8 is designed to address the underlying cause of mechanical low back pain by helping patients restore neuromuscular control of the multifidus muscle.

Why is the multifidus muscle important?

The multifidus muscle is the key stabilizing muscle in the lower back. A single injury to the back can cause impaired muscle control of the
multifidus. This lack of muscle control can decrease the spine’s functional stability, leaving the spine susceptible to further injury and overloading.
Restoring the neuromuscular control of the multifidus muscle can stabilize
the spine, therebyincreasing function and decreasing pain.

Is ReActiv8 covered by my insurance?

By enrolling in the RSVP Program, you may be able to increase your access to ReActiv8 through the submission of prior authorization and patient-based appeals.

What are the differences between ReActiv8 and Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS)?

ReActiv8 addresses mechanical CLBP, delivers stimulation to the multifidus muscle in two 30-min sessions daily, and aims to restore neuromuscular control to increase function. SCS addresses neuropathic CLBP, delivers stimulation 24/7, and aims to interfere with the perception of pain.
