From the brand
How we got our start?While in massage school in 1995, I experienced firsthand the many benefits of applying direct pressure to tight, sore and knotted muscles: noticeable relief, more flexibility and better circulation. I later noticed many of my clients needed a way to manage their pain between visits.
What makes our product unique?I began the process of creating a tool that would comfortably and effectively treat any muscle, be lightweight, versatile, affordable, and simple to use. Body Back Buddy is the result of this process. We are a family-run business committed to offering only the best massage tools available.
Why we love what we do?We are a family-run business committed to promoting global wellness one person at a time. With more than a million sold & over 5,000 5-Star reviews, we have set a standard of personal pain relief that few others can match. Please know you are the best part of our business. -Paul Nash, CMT, NMT

Back Pain, frozen shoulder, mouse shoulder, trigger point
WHAT IS A TRIGGER POINT: Trigger points are tight, tender spots in a contracted muscle, creating involuntary pain and muscle dysfunction. The resulting spasms and increased nerve sensitivity elicit sharp pain or a constant ache in the muscle. Trigger points can also cause referred pain, pain that travels from the effected muscle through the nerves and is expressed in remote areas. WHAT CAUSES TRIGGER POINTS: Trigger points develop from emotional or physical stress, repetitive use or overuse of a muscle, trauma or accidents, structural imbalance, improper stretching (or lack of stretching) before physical exertion. When individual muscle fibers are over-stimulated and unable to release their contracted state, painful knots develop. The knotted muscle experiences a spiral of events starting with a decrease in blood flow, which causes a diminished supply of oxygen, which causes a build up of metabolic wastes, and finally results in the contracted muscle (trigger point) sending out signals of distress and pain. HOW TRIGGER POINT THERAPY WORKS: In most cases you can eliminate your muscle pain by treating Trigger Points yourself with the Body Back Buddy. When you apply pressure to the Trigger Point, the pain-spasm cycle is interrupted which helps stop the contraction making the pain go away. The Body Back Buddy gives you easy access to all parts of your body. You control the amount of pressure you want to apply. Each therapeutic knob on your Body Back Buddy is designed to simulate the shape and size of the thumbs and elbows therapist's use for Trigger Point Therapy. To treat your trigger points, comfortably position a therapy knob directly over the affected muscle and apply sustained pressure for a period long enough to release the muscle spasm (about 10-30 seconds). When you release the pressure, you will feel the muscle let go and relax. Regular use of your Body Back Buddy is one of the most powerful yet simple ways you can treat muscle pain and discomfort.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I was a little reluctant to order because, plastic. But when I read reviews about how sturdily it was made, I took heart. It *is* well made, and would have to come under serious abuse to cause it to break. It was worth every penny.
I am almost 27 years old with size G cup breasts. No matter what I do, my back is constantly in pain. I seriously do not remember what it was like before my back pain, which started around 8th grade. I’ve tried yoga. I’ve been on pain killers (for a short time, because I cannot stand taking pills daily). I’ve had professional massages (amazing, but not realistic when needed as often as I do). I go to the chiropractor as much as I can. I exercise. Everything.
I had been looking at Thera Canes for awhile. I was debating back and forth whether to spend money on something that may or may not work. What sent me over the edge was throwing my back out for the 5th time. Let me remind you, I’m just shy of TWENTY FREAKING SEVEN YEARS OLD! Why am I having the back issues of a 50+ year old!?
I got this cane and two different kinds of back rollers. The back rollers have been amazing at stretching and cracking my back. I would highly suggest them as a compliment to this cane. But this CANE! THIS MF CANE! It has changed my LIFE. All the knots and tension built up from YEARS of muscle strain are being slowly chiseled away like magic. It definitely hurts SOOOOOOOOOOOO GOOD. My sweet fiancé (love you babe) could N.E.V.E.R. He tries so hard, and I commend his efforts. But he doesn’t get close to a fraction of the pressure this provides. You couldn’t even pry this from my cold, dead hands.
In short, if you are curious about this for your back pain (as long as it’s not due to inflammation), GET. THIS. F*****G. CANE.
I've never been able to reach that spot before and it felt Wonderful. I was simply over joyed that I'd finally found something that could target the spot and provide relief. Yep, he's a real miracle worker.
I even found that I can hold the Back Buddy in place and lean back against the couch. I can then move side to side using the couch as an aid. If it ever feels to hard, I simply take a towel and fold it in half and lay it across the area I'm working on.
I've had owned the Body Back Buddy for six years now and I'm very happy with my purchase. Debi B.

Recently I have been suffering more and the massages I was having, while nice, just weren't cutting it. With the foam roller and massage balls I had I just couldn't get to the knotted muscles myself. So I turned to Google to see if I could find anything that I could use to get at the source and I came across the Body Back Buddy.
Initially, I didn't buy it but the pain persisted and so I popped it into my shopping cart.
And now I wish I had bought it years ago. After just one use I was able to get at the tight muscles under my shoulder blade and release some. I don't have the constant feeling of a tennis ball sized knot getting in the way under there and so slept better than I usually do.
The right side of my back hasn't felt this loose and relaxed in such a long time so I am looking forward to regularly using the Body Back Buddy on all those tight areas around my body, getting the treatment I need without the high price tag.
I suffer withe shoulder muscle pain badly and it releases tension completely.
You have to spend a little time with your eyes closed mindfully finding where it’s needed, and then...... a little pressure and gentle coaxing and, aaahhhhhh......bliss. ( I still think it’s pricey! 🤣)
Definitely recommend it.
