As a sufferer from lower back pain I have tried many different remedies to relieve my pain. I’ve tried everything from medicine to chiropractic care and various exercises but my weak lower back still gives me problems and I’m always looking to try something new. A while ago I saw an advertisement for a product called Spine-Worx which the description states that this natural back support system, designed by a chiropractor, uses your body’s own weight to apply controlled pressure to the spinal vertebrae. As you lie on Spine-Worx, your spine is pressed firmly against the length of its two unique padded and contoured rails, injection-molded to fit the natural shape of the mid- and lower back. The vertebrae in the spine are gradually and gently encouraged to realign into their natural positions, which ultimately is said to relieve pressure and pain.
So, with nothing to lose, except the lower back pain, US Therapy, Inc sent me a unit for review. Upon opening the box the Spine-Worx product almost looks like a toy and some sort of gimmicky product. But prior to requesting the unit I read many other great reviews and new that they had to hold some truth. I read the instructions, which I highly recommend, since if used improperly you may potentially hurt yourself. After finishing the instructions I placed the product on the floor and aligned myself with the support system. In my mind I thought when I laid down and applied pressure I would hear everything pop in place… but that was neither the case nor how this product works. It was a bit uncomfortable at first but with a pillow behind me head it became less uncomfortable and I could feel the even pressure being placed on my spine from my body weight. And honestly, this product could not have come at a better time as my deskchair at work was giving me serious lower back pain issues with no lumbar support what so ever.
After the first use of about 10 minutes or so I actually felt some relief after getting back up. So, with that in mind I put the product to the test and used it for two-weeks for about 10 minutes every night. I was presently surprised each and every time that I used the product my back did not bother me as much during the day or at night since starting to use the product. Additionally I have also started to do some basic back stretches too and the combination seems to be working great! The Spine-Worx product even though it may look simple and silly is a great product and I can’t say enough about it. I look forward to continuing to use Spine-Worx in addition to my basic exercises and will surely recommend it to others who are also in the same position as me and looking to find relief from back pain.
