Several years ago, I started experiencing sharp pains in my neck and lower back that got worse over time. Some days it was difficult to walk or even move my head. I saw a couple of doctors and they gave me a list of stretches to do and told me to take ibuprofen. I thought I was going to live with the pain forever.
I was given one of these to try and was very skeptical to say the least. However, I stuck with the regimen (2 times a day for 2 minutes at a time) and my back pain was greatly reduced within 6 weeks. After a few months, it was almost as if I never had a problem. It has even helped my sciatica.
I started on the first level and made it to the last level in about 7 months. I still use it, but only once a day, and sometimes I even skip days. But if I go a week or two without it, the pain starts to creep back. (I still have to be careful about what movements I make because I can still easily wrench my back, but I have no trouble running or turning my head anymore.)
There are very few things I fully endorse, but I believe in this product so much that I bought one each for my mom, brother, and sister this last Christmas. It's crazy that more people don't know about it. Even crazier is that some people I've told don't believe me. Or maybe they don't want to invest in it. If you have back pain but don't want to spend the money on this thing, put it on your Christmas or birthday list. Seriously.
The Backbridge was simple to use and provided a gentle, supported stretch for my whole back. Using it twice a day has relieved my pain and tightness. The adjustable levels make it possible for me to get more or less stretch, depending on how I am feeling. I've also used Backbridge in my yin yoga class as substitute for yoga blocks. A great all around tool.
I received the backbridge a few weeks ago and it's made such a difference for me! I have lower back pain because my job requires a lot of sitting. Since using it every morning for 2-3 minutes before I go to work I have been pain free! I also use the backbridge with the strap that comes with it for my work chair! It has supported my back and improved my posture while working. This was a GOOD BUY!
