The Body Back Buddy is by far the best hook massage tool in my collection for a number of reasons.

First off, I also own the standard S-Hook as well as the Theracane and from my experience with all three, this one is the winner by a long shot.

The S-Hook's main advantage is the ability to take it apart, which makes it very compact for travel purposes. But even still, I like to take the BBB with me unless compact space is absolutely critical.

The Thera-Cane's main advantage is its simplicity. It is one-sided and fairly light-weight compared to the BBB.

Now for the real review, the Body Back Buddy has many advantages over the above mentioned tools.

- 11 knobs in assorted sizes and shapes from small to round to pointy
- Large enough to command and control comfortably
- Handles are angled for better leverage compared to other tools
- Can use on practically every muscle group from abs, chest, shoulders, whole back, quads, hams, feet, neck, etc...
- Great conversation starter

Summary:
When I say I take my BBB with me everywhere, I mean EVERYWHERE! It's that awesome! I'm at a computer for 10 hours-a-day almost every day and before I found the BBB, I had a hard time releasing tight muscles and trigger points. Although I did have the S-Hook and Theracane, I found myself not using them as much as I do the BBB. My best guess is that it just wasn't as effective and I quickly got tired of effort required. It's true that you can use your body weight and larger muscle groups to leverage the pressure on the aforementioned tools, but the BBB is just much better at it.

I especially love the pointy knobs for really digging into deep trigger points in the back, shoulder and feet.

Thought it was the greatest tool ever for loosening up my very tight neck and shoulder structures... until it broke under what I believe to be little pressure. Fail!

I could not decide which device to buy, so I ordered both. I love both! Within 5 minutes of opening the package (sturdy packaging from DBROTH) I was massaging a tight muscle in my back that I had not been able to reach before. I am 62 and have had over 40 years of back aches. I have tried stretching, yoga, the tennis ball in the tube sock thing, a hugger mugger roller, and every over the counter pain pill ever invented. Last night I took a hot soak in the tub and then 30 minutes of theracane and back buddy. This morning I woke up and my back was not aching. I don't remember the last time that happened. These items came with the booklet from Theracane that showed massage positions. You can download the manual from the Body Back Buddy web site. I also ordered the trigger point workbooks. I will read them some day when I put the canes down.

(approximate) Theracane Dimensions:
height: 24 inches;
diameter across cane head: 11 inches;
handle length from cane to bulb: 3.5 inches;
diameter of round bulbs: 1 inch;
length of little knobby things: 1 inch;

(approximate) Back Buddy Dimensions:
height: 27 inches;
diameter across larger cane head: 11 inches;
diameter across smaller cane head: 9 inches;
handle length from cane to bulb: 4 inches;
diameter of round bulbs: 1 inch;
length of pointy bulbs: 1.5 inches;
length of little knobby things: 1 inch;

Go ahead and laugh at me! I don't care! My back is happy!

I've known I have trigger points for years (Thanks, Clair Davies!), but since I have a Knobble, a boyfriend, and some sharp edges on my granite countertops, I thought a Back Buddy type tool would be redundant. How wrong I was! I've been having a lot of tension headaches lately, and finally thought I'd give the Back Buddy a try.

This incredibly bright blue tool arrived larger than I had imagined. It's great for digging into all sorts of area that the booklet doesn't illustrate. For instance, sit at your kitchen table, using the table to support the Back Buddy ,and lean one of the long pokey parts into your neck to apply pressure to your sternocleidomastoid muscles. You can also balance the tool on the ground, kneel, and lean into the same pokey bit to massage sore hip muscles. Be creative! I've used it to help stretch and to unplug an item behind a large appliance.

When not in use to massage sore muscles, you could probably also keep it around to club a burglar in the night.

Oh- and be forewarned: It has an incredibly phallic portion that *will* provoke your friends to inquire about your actual intentions for the tool's usage.

This tool is great! I'm a dad with 3 kids and giving piggy back rides is part of my daily routine...highly recommended for all dads! My back pays for it though and everybody runs for the hills when they hear me asking for a back rub...sometimes I even have to bribe them...wife too! With the Body Back Buddy, I can treat my back to some much needed relief and hit the exact hard-to-reach areas!

I originally purchased the Body Back Buddy, but returned it for the TheraCane. The BBB was just too cumbersome to use, being as large as it is, and with that "S" curve. Seems whichever side of the "S" I wanted to use, the other side would be sticking way out. Why have something larger than it really needs to be? After awhile, I really didn't like using it very much. Sent it back.

So, I tried the Theracane. Perfect! It is smaller, the feel of the plastic is smoother and more comfortable, and it is just a sturdy. Quite portable the Theracane is.

Everyone is different, though. I would say if you're into working out all the time and nutrition and and exercising, the Body Back Buddy might be for you. It is larger, for sure. Once learned, it *might* be more versatile, with all the handles and knobs on it.

However, if you're just an average person like me who is in need of something smaller and simpler to help massage those areas you can't reach on your own, the TheraCane will probably be better for you. Also, if you're older, try the TheraCane. I think you'll like it. Plus, it is small enough to take with you on vacation.
