I already had a similar back stretcher, but it wasn’t adjustable and never felt enough. This back stretcher is fantastic, and I can choose height depending on how sore my back is. I have spinal stenosis and my disks are damaged and pressing on nerves. I often feel as though I need put on a rack and stretched, as that’s not possible this is the next best thing. I use it every evening and try to spend at least 15 minutes at a time, I put a cushion under my head and relax. The massage protrusions help with knots. It really makes a difference to how compressed my back feels after a long day. It’s easy to store as folds flat.
Well, I very seldom have a product that has helped me as much as this but a few words: You have to get use to it, you cannot, I repeat, cannot jump right in. You are stretching so you do not try to get there day one. Also, I use this product with a towel over the top because the knobs are uncomfortable. Maybe I will get there but not right at the moment. Also, in addition to starting slow, for me, I have to get off the stretcher as if I am doing a sit up not rolling off because I found you can pull muscles by going to the side. That might just be me. I used it beside the bed and use the bed to help pull myself straight up off and then I continue leaning forward for a better stretch the other way. I am 65, 210 lbs. I am in decent shape but do have some arthritis in my back from years of moving furniture. I cannot speak to using it if you have severe type problems , maybe you check with your doctor but I can tell you, it has helped me a lot. I used it 2-3 times a day for maybe 2 minutes each time. I used it at the lowest setting also. I have not tried to raise it yet as it is working right where it is, I cannot say this enough, go slow and get use to it. I also use a pillow for my head. I also use it to get that thoracic type stretch. I just love it. Remember, you are stretching so you have to go slow and you will be sore also.
