 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.

Little Green Pod of Surprise

It was easy to use and brought relief to a locked up back & muscles. I found it useful. It didn’t take long to use it without too much discomfort. Longer term, will see how it goes. I love the green colour which inspires and sense of ‘go’ and movement.

A great stretch

The back pod is way more effective at stretching my upper back than the roller I used to use. I look forward to using it at the end of a day at a computer.

Love it

I’ve really enjoy using this device. And it addresses so many symptoms we experience due to our computer driven lifestyles.

Worked on the first few days!

I am beyond impressed at how quickly this pod helped me. I had been having chest pain on my left upper ribs for over 3 weeks as well as back and back pain. The upper left side ribs were very tender to the touch, i had difficulty sleeping because I couldn't find a comfortable position and overall uncomfortable with the pain. Anti inflammatory medicine was doing nothing for me. My doctor said it was possibly costocondritis due to my job and posture in front of a computer all day. When I found a video regarding the back pod i knew i had to try it. Unbelievably, the pain was gone after only 2 days of using the back pod to stretch my spine and back. I will continue to use it as it has been amazing relief. Thank you so much!!!

The totally awesome Back Pod

I sent this to a family member as a birthday present. The feedback is very positive. "Excellent pod and has made a huge difference to relieving my back pain".

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.
