Say Goodbye To Back Pain
Relieve your back pain with the Quantum™ Optimum Back Stretcher. This therapeutic home health accessory uses a multi-level adjustment technique to provide you the desired stretch you're looking for. Featuring 96 massage points and 10 magnetic therapy points, all to stimulate points on your back, the Optimum Back Stretcher helps to restore the natural curvature of your spine.
Whether you have an injury or suffer from a form of spinal degeneration, this practical pain reliever works to safely stretch the lumbar region. Especially for anyone working remotely or from a home office, the everyday seating position may be comfortable, but might not be good for the back. Office chairs normally feature orthopedic designs, while home chairs or couches don’t give that much support. That’s where the back stretcher comes in, as a great alternative to expensive physical therapy appointments or chiropractic adjustments that are not readily available.
How A Back Stretcher Works
As we age, gravity begins to pull the spine down, compressing the vertebrae and often causing pain and discomfort. The first step to making a back stretcher work for you is to try and completely relax the back muscles. Once that happens, the back stretcher starts to stretch the spine vertically, creating some space in between the vertebrae and counteracting the natural effects of gravity.
A back stretcher also works to relieve issues with the sciatic nerve, arthritis in the lower back, and possible herniation of bulging discs in the back. It’s also great to use with any number of physical stretches, including yoga postures, to help with relief and flexibility. The built-in magnets add stimulation of certain back points and aid in restoring the spine. You can also position the back stretcher to use with the waist by laying on your side.
How To Use The Optimum Back Stretcher
To start using your new back scratcher, position the wide end of the unit against your lower spine. Center your spine in the slot designed to cradle the spine, for extra comfort and ease of use. Next, raise your arms over your head and shoulders, resting them as close to the floor as you can in order to gain an additional stretch. Before standing, sit up gradually and rest for 30 seconds to avoid getting light-headed.
Assembly is easy but should be followed step by step for proper use. Start with pre-bending the arch board for the level you want to use. Then gently press the arch board down and slide the narrow end into the baseboard to create the correct position for your stretch. Then secure the wide end of the baseboard against your knees and slide the wide end of the arch board into the single slot.
Choose from three levels, depending on the position you want and the intensity of the stretch. Beginner / Level one: Less intensity; positions the back 7 cm from the ground Intermediate / Level two: Moderate intensity; positions the back 9 cm from the ground Senior / Level three: Strong intensity; positions the back 11 cm from the ground
