Since I am leaving my lovely BUPA cover through redundancy I have been recommended this

Anyone had any experience with this? Thinking of buying one and seeing if it brings me relief; reviews look good from back pain sufferers.

Not had one but heard they are good. The designer is from a few miles down the road. Same fella designed a yoke for spreading cement evenly between bricks when building walls a few years ago. I used see it advertised on eurosport.

I know the professional sports teams use them for training and recuperation. Any reviews I heard on radio etc. were positive. I haven't tried it myself. I rarely do the exercises I should for my back as it is.

Had it a couple of weeks now. Never used foam rollers before this.

Arrived in a battered box for 55 notes, however unit was undamaged from transit just you know initial presentation wasn’t good. Inside were the rollers and A4 card showing the routine to use, although it is better to look up videos of it in use for better view of where to position yourself on it.

Seems to work, in that the pain I feel when I used to go to the physio when she hit my last and traps is similar, as is the period of relief. However the difference is that I can do this everyday instead of sporadic physio appointments. Also it covers all my body not just where my physio focused. So my gluteus, quads, hamstrings, IT band, calf and shins also get a going over using the programme that came with it which takes 20 minutes (26 moving between positions included).

Doesn’t however deal with my main issue of rotator cuff damage, which still requires a tennis ball against a wall.

Will do more reading on foam rolling and keep going with it and let you all know more.

Update: yeah it’s good. Glutes are where my back pain starts and this really hits those. Great to use after skating/excercise.
