    Backpod - A Premium Treatment for Tech Neck, Upper Back and Headache Pain from Hunching over Smartphones & Computers

    Crafted by a highly experienced New Zealand physiotherapist with three decades of expertise in treating back and neck pain, the Bodystance Backpod stands out as the world’s most effective solution for the prevalent issue of a hunched upper back causing neck problems.

    Why Choose the Bodystance Backpod?

    • It offers unmatched effectiveness in stretching tightened hunched spines and tight rib joints, providing a practical and science-backed solution.
    • The Backpod’s design, size, and construction derive from 35 years of clinical expertise, ensuring optimal home stretch for users of all sizes.
    • Its core, made from strong polycarbonate, ensures effective stretching of tough spots, and the hypoallergenic outer silicone provides comfort.

    Upper back or neck pain, affecting 75% of people, is a widespread concern. The Backpod specifically targets hunching in the upper back, a primary cause of neck issues exacerbated by modern technology. Increased hunching from laptops, tablets, and smartphones without detachable screens fuels the surge in upper back and neck pain (tech neck).

    The Backpod® and its home care program combat the prevalent hunched upper back problem, promoting straighter posture and improved breathing.

    It is usable independently or in conjunction with healthcare professionals such as doctors, physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, or massage therapists. The iHunch, a prominent upper spinal problem in the tech-savvy world, surpasses low back pain, driven mainly by laptops, tablets, and smartphones.

    The Backpod’s home program covers stretching, strengthening exercises, massage, and posture correction for comprehensive self-care. Specifically designed to stretch ligaments, joint capsules, and fascia in a chronically hunched thoracic spine, the Backpod provides sustained collagen and fascia stretching for lasting improvements. Unlike other spinal fulcrums, the Backpod’s peaked shape and construction exert localized force on costovertebral joints.

    Suitable for almost all excessively kyphotic patients, the Backpod’s long and transverse axis offers varying stretch levels for comfort. Additionally, it stretches tight rib cage joints, aiding breathlessness and addressing conditions like costochondritis, chronic asthma, and rib pain in pregnancy.

    It also helps thoracic scoliosis by actively opposing the twist, mobilizing sacroiliac joints, aiding ongoing self-care for ankylosing spondylitis, and mobilizing costovertebral joints in chronic asthma and costochondritis.

    The Backpod can be used during treatment sessions or recommended for follow-up self-care. In conclusion, the Backpod is a genuine treatment tool for freeing and maintaining a tight upper back and rib cage, distinguished by its effectiveness and lack of gimmicks.

    What is “Tech Neck”?

    Tech neck” is a term describing neck pain and damage from looking down at electronic devices for extended periods. This posture strains muscles and can cause a variety of issues. Symptoms include neck soreness, stiffness, and headaches. Long-term effects may include increased curvature of the spine and early onset arthritis. Prevention involves maintaining proper posture, taking regular breaks, and stretching exercises.

    What is Costochondritis?

    Costochondritis is an inflammation of the cartilage that connects a rib to the breastbone (sternum). It causes chest pain, often mimicking a heart attack or other heart conditions. This pain can be sharp, aching, or pressure-like and is often worsened by coughing, deep breathing, or physical activity. The exact cause is often unknown, but it can result from injury, repetitive movement, or respiratory infection. Treatment typically involves pain relief and rest, with severe cases sometimes requiring physical therapy or medication.

    How To Fix A Hunched Neck

    Fixing a hunched neck, often caused by poor posture, involves several steps:

    • Improve Posture: Practice proper posture by keeping your ears aligned over your shoulders.
    • Ergonomic Adjustments: Set up your workspace ergonomically. Ensure your screen is at eye level and your chair supports your back.
    • Neck Stretches: Regularly stretch your neck muscles. Gently tilt your head from side to side and forward and backward. Use a device like the Bodystance Backpod to help with neck stretches. Strengthening Exercises: Strengthen your neck and upper back muscles. Exercises like shoulder blade squeezes can help.
    • Take Breaks: Regularly take breaks from sitting or looking down. Stand, stretch, or walk briefly every hour.
    • Use Supportive Pillows: Use a pillow that supports the natural curve of your neck while sleeping.
    • Consult a Professional: If issues persist, consider seeing a physiotherapist for tailored exercises and advice.

    Remember, changes should be gradual. It’s important to avoid overexerting your neck muscles.

    How To Get Rid Of Hunch Back

    To address a hunchback, or kyphosis, focus on these key areas:

    • Posture Correction: Be mindful of your posture, especially when sitting. Keep your back straight and shoulders back.
    • Stretching Exercises: Regular stretches can help. Focus on chest and shoulder stretches to open up the front of your body. Use a device like the Bodystance Backpod to help with stretching.
    • Strengthening Exercises: Strengthen your upper back, neck, and core muscles. Exercises like rows, reverse flys, and planks are beneficial.
    • Ergonomic Setup: Ensure your workspace is ergonomically set up. Your monitor should be at eye level, and your chair should support your back.
    • Frequent Breaks: Take breaks from prolonged sitting or standing. Use these breaks to stretch or walk around.
    • Physical Therapy: A physiotherapist can provide specific exercises and posture correction techniques.
    • Yoga and Pilates: These practices improve flexibility, strength, and posture.
    • Consult a Healthcare Provider: For severe cases, seek medical advice. They may recommend braces, medication, or in rare cases, surgery.

    Consistency is key in these practices. Gradual improvement is typical, so patience and persistence are important.
