It does what it's supposed to do. The first couple of times I used it I could barely get off the floor because my back hurt that bad after stretching. However, after a few minutes I was fine and after another several minutes I actually felt great. Now that I've used it several times and have it correctly adjusted, I no longer encounter this problem and I go straight to the "feeling good" part.
The two small issues I have with this stretcher are:
- It takes a bit of strength to get a good stretch. You hook the clamps around your ankles, lay back, and push the handles toward your feet. Effectively you're using your arms to make your feet and shoulders go in opposite directions. Obviously you need some strength to do this, and some people may not be able to push hard enough to get the full benefit.
- The instructions tell you how to properly adjust everything, but it took me five-ish sessions before I finally got everything tweaked and adjusted to where it worked best. Use the instructions as a good starting point for fitting, but don't read them as gospel.
The construction is good and this thing definitely feels like a heavy duty piece of equipment. It has addressed my issues very effectively, and for that I'm happy with this purchase.
My personal situation is as follows: I'm 6'1", in relatively good physical health (no knee problems or anything) and I've got a bulging disc in my lower back that gives me a lot of lower back/leg pain, in some instances so bad I could barely walk or work. I've been doing stretches and core exercises for about a year now, which has been helping to keep the pain at bay. I could still lead a normal life, but there was a certain kind of discomfort that never went away, regardless of much I stretched that day. I bought this product in hopes that it would "get" the pain that I wasn't able to relieve through stretching - and it's worked beautifully. I've used this product 5 minutes and I am more pain free than I've been in over a year. It is worth noting that the stretching sensation isn't as obvious as it is when you stretch your muscles. It's not obvious at first, but the relief is enormous.
This product basically works on the principle of spinal traction, where you physically stretch your vertebrae apart. The idea is to allow your vertebrae to "decompress." This is the ONLY device I've found for less than a hundred dollars that can give you traction for your lower back, and it definitely works (at least for me). Almost all of your other options are $400 inversion tables that are very bulky or paying for expensive physical therapy visits to do traction there (too expensive to continue in my case).
The only drawback to this product is that the ankle locks are pretty uncomfortable. I had to wear three layers of socks in order to apply the force I needed to in order to stretch comfortably without hurting my feet. Other than that, this product is comfortable, easy to use, very durable and IT WORKS. If you are in lower back pain that might be disc related, do yourself a favor and buy this product. I don't doubt it will easily pay for itself in chiropractic/hospital bills.
Summary: Product works well for lower back pain, it's durable cheap and easy to use. I gave it 4/5 because the ankle locks are pretty uncomfortable, but that problem is easily surmounted. This product removed pain nothing I else I tried could touch. Definitely well worth the $100.
