I was in an automobile accident three years ago which resulted in five bulging discs and two tears in my spinal column. That’s why I decided I’d like to give the Backloop a try after having chronic pain, I mean, daily. In pain – every day. Within three days I saw a difference — three days. And for me, for three years of pain, and then within two weeks to have whole days with no pain….that’s just beyond comprehension for me.
Eleven months of physical therapy, and chiropractic care, excellent chiropractic care, I just for some reason was not able to hold it. So, for me, being able to do this as I need it or on a daily basis is huge. I can’t go to the chiropractor’s office and stay there every day. Who can do that? We don’t have time to do that. We don’t have the money to do that. This (the Backloop) was an answer for me. In fact, my daughter and I were speaking just today and she was saying what a tremendous difference she has seen.
I’m able to do things again that I thought I would never be able to do again. And that is priceless. I can go up flights of stairs… I wan’t able to go up a flight of stairs. I can go up a flight of stairs now without thinking. I just go. I don’t have to coach myself, I don’t have to take one step and bring the other foot up like you do when you’re learning to go up stairs as a child. I don’t have to pull myself up using the handrails. I can walk normally up a flight of stairs. I can walk up a ladder. I can climb on a ladder. These are things I never thought I’d be able to do again.
I still have occasional flare-ups. But I get back in the Loop and it really relieves the pain and keeps me moving. I use it now probably one to two times everyday unless I have a flare-up, at which time I’ll use it as many times as I feel like.
It relieves the stress in my body. It just helps me to walk better, sit better, do all my daily activities better.
Right now, I feel like I use it on an as-needed basis. I do travel with it. If I go somewhere, it’s going with me. I love it.
