The Backpod for upper back and neck pain
The Backpod is a practical New Zealand innovation for treating upper back and neck pain. It is especially effective for the very common hunched, tightened upper back which drives most neck pain and headache. Statistically, most people will get this problem sometime; 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.
The Backpod and its home care programme were developed by a New Zealand physiotherapist with 30 years’ experience in treating back and neck pain. The videos show the simple exercises, massage, stretch and posture techniques 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 programme. 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.
