Spine Worx Back Support The Spine-Worx uses natural spine alignment to relieve back pain, tension and stress Spine-Worx gently guides misaligned vertebrae into their correct positions and holds them there, while tense muscles relax and stretch. Spine-Worx uses only your own body weight to control applied pressure. Spend just fifteen minutes on your back to relieve back pain and related symptoms including headaches. You can't overuse or over adjust since the back conforms to its normal and natural shape. First, place your Spine-Worx on a firm, level surface. A small pillow placed as shown will increase comfort. Carefully sit with your back toward the end with the highest rails as pictured beside. With your arms and elbows behind you for support, gently lower yourself onto the Spine-Worx with your vertebrae centered between the rails and gradually lie down. Relax. Allow several minutes for your back to conform to the natural shape of the Spine Worx. After a few minutes, you may feel you need more or less pressure in a particular area. You can adjust the pressure in different areas by changing the positions of your arms or legs. Try placing your arms on your stomach, chest, or above your head. Your legs can be spread apart, or tucked. Spine Worx Alignment Benefits: Spine-Worx helps to relieve muscular pain, pressure and irritation. Spine Worx is the best home therapy for the back in relieving tension and stress. Spine Worx cradles and elevates the spine, isolating the vertebrae into a neutral position where gravity takes over and allows the vertebrae to naturally and properly realign. Spine Worx helps to relieve symptoms common to misalignment problems, since the basic concept has to do with biomechanics and proper alignment. Spine Worx presents no chance of overdose or over-adjustment since the back conforms to its normal and natural shape. (Our suggested use is ten to twenty minutes as needed.) Any age group may be a candidate for use of Spine-Worx. Children should seek medical advice before using Spine-Worx, as their skeletal framework may not be completely developed until they are 16-17 years old. Spine Worx is designed to apply pressure to the mid (thoracic) and lower (lumbar) back only. (Not designed for the neck (cervical)). Spine Worx is portable and lightweight (2 lbs.) and can be taken on business trips, to the office or on vacation.
