What are the EZ StretchNFlex Back Stretching Devices?
EZ StretchNFlex is a simple and unique way to alleviate back pain by stretching muscles without straining your spine. Traction(back stretching) devices have been used for centuries to alleviate lower back pain and sciatica by helping to take pressure off of the spinal disks so they can rehydrate and expand.
There are many causes of back pain, but one of the most common is caused by gravity slowly compressing your disks in your spine, causing them to dry out and get smaller and more brittle. This can cause your spine to start to lock up, and possibly pinch nerves - with painful results. The only time gravity is not compressing your disks is when you sleep, and that is when your body tries to rehydrate and replenish the disks.
However as you probably know, as we get older, we tend to get shorter in stature. This is due to the compression of the disks in your spine. And the reverse of this effect is shown when astronauts return from the space station TALLER than when they left due to the zero gravity.
Since you probably won't be visiting the space station, the EZ StretchNFlex back stretcher is a simple lever-based machine that answers the question of how to stretch your lower back gently and carefully to alleviate those back pains.
The back stretching devices are portable and easy to assemble. Simply lay down on a hard surface and place your ankles in a padded holder and your arms in the crutch on top, and pull the handles that gently stretch your upper, mid and lower back, giving immediate relief.
This is much easier and more effective than the strap-type back stretchers which you need to anchor to a wall or door, and then they just basically drag you across the floor, so your stretch is limited by how slippery your floor is. And of course, inversion tables are heavily advertised, but they are huge, expensive and much harder to use.
Holistic Approach to Back Pain Relief
By using the EZ StretchNFlex Back Stretcher, you may be able to cut down or eliminate expensive visits to your chiropractor or doctor, and you might be able to cut back or eliminate pain medication that is costly and can often make you feel worse. The device also strengthens abdominal muscles which are needed to keep the lower back strong to rehabilitate and maintain a healthy body.
