We have used this back stretcher a few times since we got it and everyone in my family has found it useful. My husband & 15 year old son have different back issues but they both found that it has helped them. I use it for relaxation and stretching and enjoy the way my back feels after I use it. It is a simple product that seems to do a lot of good.

Like many worker bees, I have bad posture. Years of hunching over a steering wheel and computer keyboards have left the center of my back weak, and have given my chin the propensity to jut forward somewhat. I have found through yoga and past physical therapy that "chest opening" stretches lesson my mid-back and neck pain while also improving my posture over time. This back stretcher has been an easy way for me to stretch daily. I have also found it more effective than other methods I have tried such as lying over a rolled towel as well as more comfortable than using a yoga block under my back.

This size and quality of this product work well for me. I am a medium-build 5'8" woman with a long torso, and it is just the right length to reach from my sacrum to my neck when lying down. The stretcher is padded so that I do not feel any hard edges or otherwise uncomfortable features when lying on it. I have found too that I can vary the intensity of the stretch based on the way my body is positioned. With knees bent and arms crossed over my chest, the stretch is mild. Extending my legs and raising my arms over my head deepen the stretch. The information that came from the manufacturer states that the device can also be used to stretch along one's ribcage if used while lying on one's side. I haven't tried this posture yet, so I can't say whether or not it seems helpful.

Others wondering whether the back stretcher will work for them should consider a few things: I knew before using this product that stretching my back helps me to feel better. I am also a somewhat active person with good flexibility, so stretching usually feels good to me, not uncomfortable. If you don't have similar experiences with your back pain, you may not like this product as much as I do. I should also mention that this stretcher seems to be a good fit for my height and weight. I cannot say whether others will find that the length and amount of padding suit their needs.

Structurally, this product still works well, which is my main concern. Cosmetically, this thing looks horrendous and cannot sit out in the living room between uses because of poor construction. There is a seam that traverses the bottom perimeter of the product that easily started peeling off and the stitching started breaking very quickly. This is a static product, meaning you just put it on the ground and lay on it. How does a static product wear so easily and quickly? Regardless, it's cheap, it does the trick if you have lower back pain, but make sure you lower yourself slowly on it. I found that I could easily hurt myself if I didn't take my time laying down on this, as even though it seems harmless, this thing REALLY stretches your back.

For the price it is great. But I bought an inversion table and do not use this anymore. But before I got the inversion table I did use it and it did help my back.

This really stretches out the back without letting you go too far. I can actually hear my back popping all the way up and down.

I have a slew of back problems after some car accidents. Because of this my back does not tend to stay curvy in the proper fashion. This stretcher helps some. I would not qualify it as the best thing I have ever felt but it is nice. After a long day walking around its nice be able to rest on this thing. I can definitely feel my back relaxing but I wouldn't recommend this as your only fix.

I am a Pilates Teacher/Trainer and I purchased these for my students. They are excellent for back support and stretch as well as neck. I bought five and have been happy.
