What condition were you trying to treat using RelaxoBack?

I like to consider the use of the RelaxoBak a total spine tool. Appropriate posture is something that is quickly disappearing due to the sedentary lifestyles most Americans have today. Postural deformities will be the next major cause of numerous dysfunctions affecting the health of millions in a myriad of ways and will permanently damage the children today when they are adults in the future. My Focus has always been to use the RelaxoBak as a pelvic stabilizer to reduce stress of the S-I Joint and the lower spine. A solid foundation leads to a neutral position of your entire spine and head.
