Back Massager – Back pain is a problem that plagues millions of people around the world and it can make your life a living hell. I know first hand about this as I have been dealing with chronic back pain for a very long time. Through the years I have used a number of treatments, therapies, and procedures. From medicated pain patches to tens therapy, spinal fusion to nerve ablations and much more. If there is a treatment for back pain, chances are I have tried it.
A Back Massager for Dealing with Pain
Fortunately, there are many options available to deal with back pain. They may not fix your back problem but they’re great for giving you some temporary relief. Getting a massage is one way to curb your back pain. However, everyone can not afford to have massages. That is not to say that messages are not worth the money. They are well worth the money, that’s if you can afford to shell out the money.
There is good news, though. This way is easier and cheaper. Back Massagers are a nice alternative. You only pay once for the back massager and you have unlimited massages from that point on! The massages you can treat yourself to is literally endless.
The great thing about getting a back massager of any kind is the portability. You can use it almost anywhere like in your home, your car, even at the movies, etc. You don’t have to make an appointment and spend hours on a massage if you do not want too. It can take as little or as long as you want. You really can have a message virtually anywhere.
Masseuse vs Back Massager
There is one complaint that you hear sometimes after someone has gone to see a masseuse. The complaint is the masseuse was way too rough on them. Even after telling them it hurt, they did not let up. Well, I have to say from my experience that I have had massages where the masseuse was rough because they were working on some knots in my back. However, anytime I would tell them I was hurting and they always backed off. So, to be honest, I do question some of those people who come out with those types of complaints.
If you have your own back massager, you won’t have to ever worry about possibly dealing with that. Most massagers have different types of massages to choose from and you can adjust the intensity. Some have the option of adding heat or cold to your massage.
Massages can be expensive, especially if you get them regularly like once or twice a week. You will definitely get the most health benefits from a massage when you get them regularly. A massage can do wonders like calming your nervous system, improve your blood and lymphatic circulation, and relieve muscle pain. It can work as a great pain management tool for conditions like arthritis, sciatica, muscle spasms, and chronic back pain.
A back massage from a masseuse will cost you on average about $70. The range across the board can be as low as $40 and up to $150 and sometimes even higher.
Getting a back massage from a Back massager, on the other hand, costs far less and you’ll be able to use them for years after paying for them just once. You won’t have to worry about fitting the massage payment into your budget each week.
Air Compression Back Stretching Mat
The HoMedics® Air Compression Back Stretching Mat is really a great product. I like to refer to it as a yoga mat on steroids. This mat has a precision-controlled air-compression system that surpasses the basic stretching. You can easily increase your flexibility as the air chambers inflate and deflate to replicate your favorite yoga stretches. If you do not know any yoga that’s okay. This mat works great if you simply just want to do stretching.
You can lie back and let the HoMedics® Air Compression Back Stretching Mat do the stretching for you. There are precision-controlled air compression chambers for maximizing your stretches with very little effort needed. There are 4 preset programs and 3 levels for controlling the intensity of your stretch. It comes with a programmed hand controller, making it easier to get a great experience. This mat can work in any space. It folds up easily and can be stowed away taking up very little space.
I have not used this product but it jumped out at me and looks like it would be fantastic to have. Especially if you travel a lot
