Back Pain…How many of us have it? I know I do. I find myself suffering time and time again. I’ve finally realized that I need to start taking some preventative measures to keep my back healthy year round.

I was recently contacted by LiteAid to try out a back stretcher. Well timing could not have been better. I have been doing lots of planting and gardening and found myself in terrible pain all in my lower back.

***This is level one stretch. I did like how it felt, but found myself wanting to jump right into level two. I needed a deeper stretch.***
So I set up on level two. Now this stretch felt amazing. I cannot get over how relaxing it is to just lay down on the stretcher and let the tension of the day melt away. I am normally very flexible, but have found repetitive motions such as weeding and planting really tightens up my back and instantly causes knots in my sacroiliac joint.


I plan on using this little gem the three times a day for five minutes per session, like the product usage instructions recommends.


I am hoping to work my way up to the third level next week. I really think this will help protect me against unnecessary back pain. I know back pain is not completely avoidable, but if one simple effort helps eliminate any pain or most of my pain, how can I not work this into a healthy daily habit.


The back stretcher comes with a great usage instruction chart with helpful suggestions and guidelines. I also love that you can use this in your car for back support as you travel.


Here’s to happy backs one stretch at a time. Stretching away the pain. A special Thank-you to LiteAid for sending me this product for review, I truly enjoyed putting it to the test and have found great results after only several days of stretching.
