Review Content Sciatic pain is almost gone. My wife and I both use this machine. Its easy to change the height and easy to use. The best thing about it is that it works! Were in the middle of a move and use it every night and most mornings. miracle worker Shoveled snow 2nd time in life (62y.o) felt the pains next day..order Back2Life, been thinking about it for years. [...] ease of snap together had me feeling better that nite..use next day..even better..2 days all good. Loaned to niece (32y.o)she is so thankful will purchase one herself. Good product so far I havent had this product long enough to give an opinion, but I have noticed that the "On" button is hard to reach while lying down, especially with short people like me who have short arms. It does seem to relax my back at the end of the 12 minutes, but like I said, I havent used it long enough (have used only 3 times since Ive had the machine) to give you an honest opinion on its effects on my back. Note: Ignore all the "Cons" I entered. I cant clear them. I was trying to give a short synopsis to fit into that section. S.I. can you fix this?? This product is amazing!! Im using this product twice a day and I feel better and better at next day. Helped me a lot until i had knee surgery I have had low back problems most of my life. Especially as an over endowed woman, there was a lot of unusual strain. I also am an absent minded professor type and hence accident prone. This machine helped me enormously. Before I had a reduction, and for months after, back pain had *become so bad i could only even SIT upright for 3 or 4 hours a day without terrible pain. I used to come home at lunch and use the machine so I could get through the afternoon in the office. For a long time I worked half my day at home, but things changed so I needed to be on site more. I finally got approved for insurance to cover a reduction. I also had some muscle and tissue balancing that was a normal procedure, but experimental as a back relief aid. I feel sure back2 life is a part of why it was so succesful. But i got a big surprise when after a knee replacement I used it and it felt like the supporting joints also had the separation like the back. That was a very BAD thing for my replaced knee and I stopped u What a relief! I have had lower back pain on & off for about 3-4 years. When it started getting worse on top of extreme neck, should & arm pain I have had for 7 years (now disabled due to failed neck surgeries) I could hardly walk & I was getting so depressed. I have tried just about everything for my neck & did not know which direction to go for my back. With little faith & afraid I was wasting good money, I bought this anyway, used it 2x a day for a few days & I have been lower back pain free for about 2 1/2 weeks now! Thanks to whoever made this! Feels good on my back but not my legs It makes my back feel really good when I use it; however, it really hurts my calves. Im not sure if I am still using it correctly, but I move my legs so that the machine is resting on the lowest part of my calves instead of the higher parts. I thought that it was just me, but I had a friend try it out, and she had the exact same experience. Im in love this back2life saved my life, I suffer from sciatic nerve, it has relived the pressure and I fell great, it only took about 8 days, I use it everyday and will continue to use it daily, the hardest thing for me is getting off of the floor because of my age but well worth it I LOVE MY BACK2LIFE Cheryl F. Not for tall people My husband is very tall and the unit would not stretch long enough for him. We even put a board underneath it and it still wasnt right. This product is NOT meant for tall people. YOU WONT BELEIVE IT NO PAIN VERY EASY TO USE. MY BACK HAD ALWAYS HURT SOMETIMES SO BAD I COULDNT WALK AFTER TWO WEEKS OF USING THIS PRODUCT MY PAIN WAS SO MUCH BETTER. I HAVE USED IT FOR TWO YEARS NOW. MY MOTHER BOUGHT ONE USES IT DAILY. MY NIECE WHO PLAYS COLLEGE VOLLEYBALL USES ONE. YOU WONT BELEIVE IT BUT IT DOES WORK. IT HAS SAVED ME SO MUCH PAIN THAT I HAD ON A DAILY BASES. THANKS This product REALLY works! I suffered with lower back pain from years of heavy lifting. Now, thanks to Back2Life Pain Relief Solution, I dont have to take Hydrocodon pills or drink 101 proof Wild Turkey for the pain. Back2Life really works! Love Love Love It Absolutely LOVE this machine!!! After the first use could feel a difference in my low back. Used it 2-3 times a day and was completely pain free and able to walk/move without pain. Relief Set the height adjustment, plug it in and its ready to give relief. The easy motion just puts you to sleep you are so relaxed. Low Back Pain Relief Anytime You Need It I have sciatica and this helps a lot. It helped the first time I used it. Sometimes when I cant sleep because of the sciatic pain that goes into my hip & down my leg, I will get out of bed and use the Back2Life. It relieves the pain and I can go to sleep. I like the fact that I have it at home and can use it anytime (I dont have to wait in pain and make an appointment & go sit in a doctors office) I also like that it is pain relief without medication. It is so gentle you think it isnt going to work but when the 12 minutes are up and it stops; I am always amazed at how much it has helped. The only cons I can think of are that I have gone to sleep using it. It is used on the floor, but I dont really mind that. I have a thick down afghan/throw that is light weight that I use to lay on. really works i use this product twice a day seven days a week very easy to use makes a big difference in my back pain will use this product as long as it lasts back2life Even after chiropractic treatments my back was close to being 100% but just wasnt there. After using back2life for a few weeks I can say Im back to 110%. I wish I would have found this years ago. YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE IT UNTIL YOU USE IT After one week of use beats the price and trouble to a visit to my osteopath doctor.Took a day or so and a call to customer service to get the proper position also to get dog use to fact I was not on the floor to play! Works great! I tried it upon a co-workers suggestion because it worked great on him. I have lower back pain that makes me miserable. I did the sessions and my back pain went away. When it comes back from time to time I just do it again. When I get severe pains from standing all day - I do two sessions in a row and incredibly it goes away. (I am sore, but not in pain) Not sure . A little stretch to reach the on button. When placing legs and body in various comfort places to work this machine...it is noisy ...it creaks and my fear is that it will break or quit. It does not seem to matter the placement. Through the noise it does feel very good on my back when it stops and I wait two minutes with legs on the floor as suggested. I also go to the chiropractor and use this in between times. Back 2 Life - a Joke If you have back problems you know how hard it is to get down on the floor - and then to "scootch" over until your buttocks are against the machine. This thing made my back much worse! It did not do what your description said it would do and it was very uncomfortable on my legs. I have sent it back to you. I would buy this for someone as a gift Its a slow moving rotation. Would like it more if it had a few speeds. The on/off button is in a bad spot, I always bump it on when I take my legs down. Its hard to get down in the floor when your old or have back problems. After using for the set time, it is easier to get up off the floor. Liked It I was very excited to get and use the Back2Life. However, upon buying it and setting it up, I soon found that unless I had someone there to press the button to start it up, I couldnt use it. Once my legs were up, my arms were not long enough to turn it on. My husband was unable to help me due to a stroke, so I had to return it. I so wish it had a remote control. My daughter helped me out with it several times during her Christmas break from teaching, and when I went to my Chiroprater, he said my back seemed to be moving better. I told him I had been using the machine. So, Back2Life,PLEASE come up with a solution. Im sure its great; just not for me The Back 2 Life was delivered to me quickly and was a snap to put together. Ive been using it for weeks now and just have not seen any concrete results. Perhaps my back pain is not the type that can be helped by this product. This is an amazing machine I bought this based on the reviews on this website and I was not dissappointed. This is a machine you can use several times a day, and it definitely does wonders on your lower back. i got my back2life on 9-9-2011 i got my Back2Life on 9-9-2011.and i love it and it have been 5day and i have not have to take anypainpills i wouild take a 8painpiills a day butof to day i have not for 5 day and i have been in pain for 25yr it have help me tyvm .i have been a fireman 23yr all of this is not a joke it work ty .12min-and to time a day . Back 2 Life has given me a new back! I use my Back 2 Life every night after my shower. I let the warm water relax my back prior to use. Then I relax for 12 minutes and love it! I love the self timer and that it is so gentle. The only thing I am not so happy with is it makes noices and squeeks. That interupts some what with me trying to relax. I have recommended to a co-worker who has back problems also. I think she is going to order. WOW I have spent several thousand dollars going to chiropractors. My doctors finally conducted an MRI and found more than a few chronic conditions and sent me to six weeks of phisical therapy. My condition was so bad that even driving short distances sent shocks of pain up my spinal cord. After one week of twice a day on the back-to-life I am a new man. I still use back-to-life due to arthritis and other conditions but I have been able to avoid that dreaded surgery and am able to work part time now. this machine is built as well as the ones in the chiros office. The steady motion is much better than a jarring twist and crack. Did I say much better that surgery.
