Disclaimer: Used sensibly, the Backpod is safe for almost all common musculoskeletal conditions involving the upper back, middle back and neck. It is entirely under the user’s control. The stretch it provides can be graded with pillows under your head and/or a fluffy towel or two over the Backpod itself so that it’s just initially uncomfortable - this is all in the instructions.
We do genuinely think that the Backpod does a better stretch for the thoracic spine and rib cage than anything else on the planet. It is not possible to build a single product perfectly suited to every patient; however the Backpod and its home programme should benefit the vast majority of upper back and neck problems. If problems or pain persist when using the Backpod or following its home program, see your doctor or other appropriate health practitioner. The Backpod shouldn’t be used where there are wounds, recent surgery, infections, shingles or other skin lesions; bony fractures, cancer, or much osteoporosis - see pages 7&8 in the Backpod’s user guide on the BACKPOD page.
