I have been using the back stretcher daily and enjoy the gentle stretching it provides. I still have it on the first setting but that feels helpful enough. I shall advance the setting higher after giving it more time. It is comfortable and easy to use. Thanks Vive for another economical, therapeutic product!

Looks easy - but can be a challenge! Two weeks in and I'm still only on the second level, but started trying level three for a minute. I really thought I was more flexible, but this little beast proved me wrong - hah! It is wonderfully comfortable and so easy to align it correctly with your back. Very lighweight and flattens out for travel - I just love it and feel so much better after using it - it is now part of my bedtime routine every night without fail. And as always, Vive's customer service is outstanding!
Lisa, thank you for the wonderful review! We are glad to hear that the back stretcher is working out so well for your needs. Thank you for being a Vive Health Customer! ~Rebecca, Vive Health CS~

Did someone say relax the back.
The back stretcher is one of the most basic, inexpensive way to relax your back. Your vertebrae floats in the channel and you just breathe and relax. The hardest thing about is bending the hard plastic to fit in the first position which is the lowest ,starting point. The back stretcher arrived quickly and without problems.
Hi Joanne, Thank you for taking the time to give us a positive review. We are happy to know that you are pleased with the Back Stretcher as well as with the delivery service. Looking forward to doing business with you again soon. Thank you for being a Vive Health customer! -Warm regards, Gre_Vive Health
This back stretcher, even at the minimum level, is very effective!

Will this work with someone only 5’2”?
Yes, the lumbar stretcher measures 15” in length to properly support a wide range of heights.
What is the weight limit?
The back stretcher safely supports up to 440 pounds.
How do I adjust the height of the back stretcher?
First, place the base on a flat surface with the widest end closest to you. Then slide the narrow end out of the slot and reposition it in the desired position, sliding it into the corresponding slot.
Can I sleep on it?
The maximum recommended time for stretching is 5 minutes, making it unsuitable for sleeping on.
Does this help stretch the entire spine?
Yes, the back stretcher when used as instructed stretches the entire spine. To increase the amount of stretch in the lower back, slowly lower the legs from the bent knee position. To increase the stretch felt in the upper back, slowly raise the arms above the head until the elbows touch the floor.
What are the dimensions of the back stretcher?
The back stretcher is 15” long and 9.5” wide. The angle of arching is adjustable from a minimum height of 2” to a maximum height of 4.5”. And can fold flat for more compact storage.
Which end goes near the shoulders?
The narrow end of the stretcher should be placed towards the shoulders with the wider end positioned at the base of the spine.
Can it be used while in bed?
The back stretcher should always be used on flat, stable surfaces.
How many times a day should I stretch?
The back stretcher can be used for up to three, 5-minute sessions each day.
Will it fold flat for traveling?
Yes! Simply slide the narrow end out of slot to fold the back stretcher flat for storage or easy portability.
Can I use this in a chair instead of on the floor?
Yes, the back stretcher can be used while seated for support.
