What to do?
The good news is that because it all happens in a logical pattern, you can treat it logically and effectively. But you have to treat all the pieces causing the problem.
Often health professionals treat only one or two, so you get only very temporary
The Backpod™ is a high-tech mobilising tool which uses your own upper body weight to let you stretch out the tightened hunched upper and middle back which drives most neck problems.
This user guide also provides the basic stretching and strengthening exercises, home massage and postural techniques that you need to treat and care for your own upper back and neck at home.
These aren’t time-consuming or complicated. They are also available free as videos on our website
It’s fine if you’re already under care from a doctor, physiotherapist, osteopath, chiropractor,
massage therapist, acupuncturist, Pilates or yoga instructor, gym trainer, pharmacist or other
health professional. The Backpod™ and its selftreatment programme fit right in with all the other
approaches. They provide stand-alone treatment and maintenance for most middle back and neck problems, but if your specific problem needs extra help, your health practitioner is there to provide it.
We all want you, the patient, to get better, and stay that way.
The second part of this user guide is for doctors, physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors and other health professionals. It contains more detailed information on how the Backpod™ will
help their particular treatment approach. The Backpod™ and its programme are highly effective
complements to each speciality.
