 Perfect Targeted Treatment

  • TREAT the cause
  • RELEASE the ribs
  • RELIEVE the pain

The Backpod and its home program were developed in New Zealand specifically to counter the huge upsurge of pain and headache in people hunching over computers and smartphones.  So the Backpod is ideal for all problems which involve hunching.

It also specifically stretches tight rib cage joints, so helps with breathlessness and other conditions involving these, including costochondritis, chronic asthma and rib pain in pregnancy.

Magic Backpod!!

I cannot rate this highly enough. I actually found out about this product while searching for info on Costochondritis on YouTube and was amazed that help was at hand here in New Zealand. I’ve been using it for two weeks and can feel a marked difference in my pain levels and my flexibility. I am lucky to have found this and lucky that my physio was open minded enough to try it, to the point she now has one for her practice!! The best $100 I’ve spent in a long while!!

A life saver

I thought I would be suffering with costochondritis the rest of my life. I had already begun ticking off the activities that I would no longer be able to enjoy. Then I began to use the Backpod and within TWO WEEKS my pain subsided. I feel like I have my life back!

So far so great!

I have had the opportunity to use the backpod about 5 times now and already, I can tell that it is helping me. I have noticed my posture has improved and the old whiplash neck even seems to benefit. I've practically been telling everyone I know about it. Thank you so much to whomever came up with this! I'm a fan!

Back Pod Review

I continue to utilize the back pod for mid and lower back vertabral spasms. I have aproximately 18% scoliosis and can easily experience spontaneous muscle spasms. I have found that treatment witht the backpod to be highly helpful and would certainly recommend it use.

So helpful for costochondritis recovery

In late November 2021, I began experiencing very painful symptoms of costochondritis that would flare up almost every day for 2-3 months. I stumbled upon the backpod on Youtube and Reddit and I so glad that I did. Hearing Steve August explain costochrondritis in a way I felt like my doctor was failing gave me hope. Now, my recovery was not as quick as I would have liked, but using the backpod really helped, especially to relieve the severe symptoms I was having. I would use as instructed, starting out once a day and then increasing to twice daily. I would use it between my spine and shoulder blade on both sides of my back as instructed in the manual. Combing the backpod while the other exercises that Steve reviews on Youtube helped immensely and I am so grateful to have this as a tool in my recovery from costochondritis.

Skeptical no more!

Takes getting used to but give it some time, it works. You will walk taller and feel relief.Pain lessens and neck tension eases. Worth the money.

Backpod works wonders

This is an amazing product. I use it for a few minutes every evening. My back and ribs feel so much better after a few weeks of use.

Amazing Product

I purchased this for my wife and myself. I had been using it maybe 3 days when I went back to see my Physical Therapist’, what turned out to be my neck, back and spine. He was thrilled I was using the back pod, he thinks it’s a great product. It’s definitely helping to break the collagen loose, allowing my thoracic spine to move freely. With About 9 visits to my PT and using the Pod, my posture has improved, my hunch is slowly going away and my neck straightening. I will continue to use the pod and do my PT exercise at home to keep myself pain free. I am so glad to find this great, easy to use product.

No more pain around my sternum

Just using the back pod for a few minutes each day has stopped the constant pain I’ve had where my pecan muscles attach to my sternum.

Been using this daily for 6 months. It's totally eliminated pain from costochondritis. Couldn't be happier. Thank you.

This is a very useful product to help with the upper back and a stoop. Both my daughter and I use it and I find it also helps with any neck pain.

Don't be without it!

Have a Pettibon wedge which I still use and benefit from but I have to say this Backpod does more to relieve cervical spine stress at home than anything else I've ever used. And that includes emulating the same thing with rolled up socks or a tennis ball which I've done for years. I am super active, walk a few miles daily, and do specific exercises to help my neck/back. Cannot imagine not doing my Backpod routine and stretches. Thank you for this marvelous creation!

It Works If You Follow the Instructions

After 6 weeks using the Backpod I have eliminated my Costochondritis without using anti-inflammitories. I continue to use the Backpod daily to ensure it never comes back and to counter balance the time I spend on a computer during work. Read the instructions and follow them, you will not regret it!!!

This thing really works!

I've been trying for years to get my shoulder to stop hurting. My back stiffness I just took for granted. Then I heard about this device from Bob and Brad on Youtube and watched the video by Steve August. He had so much integrity that I took a chance and ordered it. And I'm very glad I did. I just lie on it while watching TV and do a few exercises. The amount of stiffness in my mid-back that the backpod unlocked was a revelation to me and I think it's what allowed my other muscles to start to relax. I'm feeling so much better. My neck and back feel way less stiff and sore, my shoulder pain is going away and I have hope that my body is going back to the way it used to be when I felt limber. I can't recommend this enough.
