Why Choose The Hog?
Spinal decompression lumbar/dorsal exercise: Simply lie on the Back Stretcher (with your lumbar or dorsal region over the stretcher) for 5 minutes, once to twice a day to stretch out your back and chest. It helps relieve back tension accumulated over the day and restore flexibility in your back. It can also reverse poor posture. Regular stretching is the best prevention against chronic back pain by restoring the natural curve and flexibility of your back.
Smart design: A convenient device that helps realign the spinal column. The 168 + mini contours give you a muscular massage and apply an even pressure (acupressure) to loosen up knots and tense areas. It can help the joints of your spinal column relax, reduce muscle tension and can help free up compressed nerves and discs.
A heavy duty construction: The EVA padded interior provides a solid foundation for any user. Its curved design moulds to the shape of the back, respecting its curvature. Firm yet flexible contours, ideal for muscle recovery and rehabilitation. (Start off gradually when first using it).
A compact and lightweight size: Portable and ergonomic, made from durable material. Ideal for travel and moving about.

Building core strength to reduce back pain.
When doing sit-ups place the Back Stretcher under the lumbar spine and your bum creates this beautiful environment for the abdominals to move through their full and available range of motion. It allows for the extension needed in the lumbar spine and the anterior tilt in the pelvis, thereby giving the abdominal muscles what they yearn for – full range, elongation, and forceful contraction.
The Back Stretcher is a multi-functional piece of equipment which not only targets abdominal muscle groups for core strength but also works on the obliques and lower back whilst providing effective deep tissue trigger point massage at the same time. Regular use has been shown to result in improved core strength, an increased range of motion and flexibility, better posture and a reduction in muscular aches, pain and discomfort.
