This review is from: Bodi-Tek Back Magic (Sports)
After some recent pain issues I visited a physiotherapy who recommended two things: 1) Take up yoga and 2) buy the back magic.
For £20 I figured why not give it a go, after all it's not often such a product gets recommended by an industry expert. The back magic itself could be described as just two bits of plastic. But that would do this an injustice, it is actually very sturdy and very comfortable to lie on. You can set it to different heights depending on how much of a stretch you'd like.
Interestingly it really doesn't look like it would do much and I was a little skeptical upon first putting it on the floor that it would actually help.
However, follow the instructions and you'll be amazed at just how effective this little bit of kit really is. 5 minutes on this give you a really deep stretch, and I was using the lowest possible setting! Working in an office, sitting at a desk all day, I've clearly bent my spin forwards, with this I can feel it stretching back the other way and the pain I had has reduced after several months regular use.
I would recommend this to anyone looking for a very quick and easy way to stretch your back, but I would also say that if you can combine this with trips to a local yoga class you will generally feel lots better, as you won't just be doing a single stretch.
This is easy to pack away when you're not using it and is portable enough to take out of the house (eg on holiday) if you're finding using it beneficial each day. Given the low price I fully recommend it.
