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.

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?

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.

Will it fold flat for traveling?
