Best present ever!
This weird looking device is called a Flexibak. It is an osteopath-designed back support cradle that eases lower back pain problems and discomfort. It gives back pain relief by correct decompression of key joints, allowing natural movement to return. Basically you lie on it and do the exercises. Check out the website at www.flexibak.net for more details.
I can be in major discomfort after running/cycling/gym session or just from normal day to day stuff like driving/carrying shopping. I do the exercises every night before bed and during the day if I'm particularly stiff. This wee gadget is a miracle worker! I can get up the next day and do it all over again.
I've had physio treatment on my back many times over the years (I'm over flexible from years of gymnastic training) When my back is bad I have to stop training. Until now. Since I started using it regularly my pain has improved enormously. It hasn't cured me but it's made a huge difference. And that's what makes it the best present ever.
