First let me start by saying that this is literally the VERY first review I have ever written in my life.

Now, that being said... I have severe neck, shoulder, upper and lower back problems. This causes me to be in excruciating pain every single day! I own a cleaning business which requires a lot of bending over for long periods of time, lifting and moving heavy things to clean behind them, etc. Yes, I know with these problems, owning a cleaning business isn't ideal, but I refuse to let the pain win!

I came across the back stretcher while searching for other items that may help with some/any type of relief and were portable enough to take with me if the pain would get too bad. I ordered a few different devices, but the back stretcher was/is by far the best so far. I see some people posted that it is too painful and had to put some cushion over it, but that has never been an issue for me. The only time I find discomfort while laying on it, is when my back is really tight and to me that's when I need it the most. However, after only a minute or so, I feel the discomfort just melt away as it loosens those tight muscles.

Everyone is different and it make take some time to find the right positions that work for you, so don't give up...

one thing is that you need to make sure your spine in aligned correctly in the middle of the stretcher, then place the highest part of the arch where you are in pain and stretched. I start at the top and go all the way down my back, doing a few minutes on each part. How you bend your knees or straighten your legs is also key - so that you are relaxed and your back and tailbone are flat on the board and not raised, depending how you are positioned on the stretcher.

A few minutes every night on the stretch mate really has stopped my back pain. I had mid back pain whenever I had to do much walking, standing or carrying my 25# granddaughter around. I place a towel over the stretcher and it feels so good, I could fall asleep on it, but the directions say not to do that. Now I'm just using it 3-4 times a week or when I have pain. I was dubious about it at first, but the science behind it made sense to me. I am just so happy to have found something so simple (and inexpensive) to relieve my back pain without going to doctors, taking a bunch of medicines and spending a fortune. Thanks StretchMate for a wonderful product.

We've purchased 3 different back stretchers, including the Spine-Worx! In our opinion, this is the best ever. Long enough to cover your entire spine, wide enough to provide stability (you won't fall to either side) Rigid & textured gently to work muscles between and along the spine. This is the best of three we've tried and I think the only choice if you've had a couple of back surgeries, like me.

I have a long history of back problems. After running at the gym, I can't go to sleep at night without this thing. Once you let yourself sink into it, find that perfect spot, you're going to melt. Buy this. But 2 of them. :)

This does help my back. I use it almost daily. If you read the directions, it actually tells you to lay the opposite way of the picture (so the large hump isn't under the small of your back). I use it a bunch of different ways depending on the day, area of the back, etc.

Like others have mentioned, the blue ridges are not soft. That would kind of defeat the point if they smooshed around. I can see where people would think its uncomfortable, but I quickly got over that feeling as the back pain started to go away. Just make sure to position yourself so your spine is between the ridges, even if that means you have to shift around to get the best fit.

It's small/short enough I store it under the family room table so I can grab it during commercials.

I bought the stretcher to relieve some back pain and hoping to visit the chiropractor less often. Overall I like this stretcher, it does what it's supposed to. My only complaint is that I'm 5' tall and I feel it was designed for taller people. I wish I could adjust it to fit my height.
