I threw my back out a couple weeks ago and it has been hurting me!! I discovered this product via Google and seriously it is a game changer!! I can hear my back pop as soon as I lay on it!! It was uncomfortable at first but after 3 times using it, my backpain has reduced 90%!! I was amazed. Everyone needs one of these and it saves you tons of money from going to chiropractor!!
I try to use this daily for 10 minutes using the middle placement of the removable slat. Build yourself up to it because it can be a very intense and sometimes uncomfortable stretch; I sit at a desk all day and need something to keep my back and hips from tightening up so badly. This works well and despite my thoughts about it being gimmicky I think over time it's helped to keep my back looser and more limber.
This little gem of a health device has proven it's worth since I purchased it over a year ago.
It's so simple yet works amazingly well.
I am a landscaper, am 65 years old and use my body a lot in my work.
My back is still in great shape after 30 plus years of strenuous use but occasionally gets out of alignment.
After just a few weeks using the device I changed the setting to the second level of arc to increase the back stretch.
That was a turning point.
I just had to get onto the device (on the floor) and my back started to pop and crack almost instantly.
In just a few minutes my back was stretched out and un-kinked.
I have been suffering from lower back pain for about 2 months, since injuring it while shoveling snow. After reading about some of the positive benefits people have felt after using back stretching devices, I thought it was worth trying myself. The positive reviews that I read about this product before purchasing are well earned. After a week of use, I am already feeling positive benefits myself. I am able to rest on it on the first 2 levels, but have been using the first level so as not to push my body too fast. I still have a bit of an ache, but I am not feeling the abrupt twinges that I had been feeling before. I have been combining using the back stretcher with some lower back yoga which I highly recommend doing as well. Whether or not you like the nubs on the stretcher is one of personal preference.
