As a board-certified chiropractic orthopedist and certified laser pain management physician, Dr. Ed Barry has spent the past 38 years helping patients get back to all the things they used to do. Over that time, Dr. Barry utilized traditional chiropractic techniques as well as laser therapy to treat a variety of conditions including arthritis, sciatica, spinal stenosis, hip pain, back and neck pain, and carpal tunnel syndrome.
Many years ago, while Dr. Barry was exercising in the gym, he was drawn to a curious apparatus that was specifically designed for toning the abdominal muscles. What made this piece of equipment so interesting was in the design and movement – a bench was fitted with a pivot bearing in the mid-point of the table so the user could alter the plane of movement in the abdomen as you contracted upward, creating resistance to both the anterior and oblique muscles in the abdomen.
That got him thinking about the possibility of creating a device that could combine the two movements of flexion and traction for the lower back. And that’s when the seed for Lift was planted, and with those years of development, refinement, and engineering, Dr. Barry is now proud to introduce Lift to patients all over the world.
