The Backpod offers effective home treatment for upper back and neck pain caused by; bad posture, excessive and repetitive computer work, overuse of mobile tools, etc.
The Backpod is a practical New Zealand innovation developed to address a problem which was either ignored or misunderstood for far too long. It has been developed by New Zealander Steve August, a physiotherapist for over 30 years’, with extensive experience in treating back and neck pain issues. The tool has had an extremely positive reception in the professional community and from customers who have genuinely found a solution to a painful and debilitating physical issue. It is especially effective for the very common hunched back and/or tightened upper back that drives most neck pain and headache.
Statistically, most people will experience this problem at some point; one in six people will be in acute pain right now; and everyone knows someone who is stooped and sore – usually hunching over a laptop, tablet or smartphone has an element of cause.
There are extensive materials available to support the correct usage of The Backpod – this includes videos showing the simple exercises, massage, stretches and posture found most effective to care for your upper back and neck at home. The Backpod is a stand-alone, home treatment device and ongoing care program. It also helps and enhances existing treatment from doctors, physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors and other health professionals.
The Backpod also has specific uses in opposing the twist in mild scoliosis and loosening restricted rib (costovertebral) joints, which are commonly tight in asthma and also drive most costochondritis (see Steve’s video How To Fix (Most) Costochondritis and Tietze’s Syndrome Chest Pain).
