Review of Backlife,
a device that eases my Back Problems & aids my Mobility

I have suffered back problems since the age of 15 with surgery in 1964, and spinal fusions in 1989 and 1992, fusing three vertebrae together. Although I continue to have severe pain most of the time and I am prescribed and take heavy duty painkillers every day I have always felt that getting on with things and not letting it beat me works better than feeling sorry for myself and taking time off. Keeping occupied takes my mind off the discomfort to some extent.

That said, poor mobility is an issue. Staying in one position for any length of time is awful - especially when I try to move again! Muscle spasm is also a regular problem for me. However, keeping on the move is something I am prone to forget when focussed on something!

The physiotherapists are right, I think, to keep insisting that I should practise the small movement mobility stretches and exercises they have prescribed but, my goodness, they are mind-numbingly boring! 

So, over the years, I have spent a fortune on special furniture, gadgets and machines to help relieve the stress and pain. None were cures, some have worked to an extent but nothing has really addressed my mobility issue, nor given any lasting relief, perhaps until now.

In January 2013, I noticed an advert for a device that would gently rotate my pelvis and create movement in my lower back that would ease tension in the deep muscle tissue. I decided to give it a try since it had a moneyback guarantee.  It is November now and I still have it. It is called Backlife and it does help to relieve the tension, my mobility and pain levels. I don't think this is a cure but used as the manufacturers suggest it does help a lot.

I got this device online from a company called J D Harris
