f you have been going around feeling like you’re back just needs to be popped, or you suffer discomfort from hours of sitting in an office chair, one of these devices may help you.
Lynx Portable Back Stretcher
Probably the hottest item in this new crop of back stretching devices is the Lynx portable back stretcher. It’s pretty clear why this is becoming popular, as it has a number of advantages over its competition. First of all, it’s portable. You can fold this thing up and collapse it down to put it into its storage bag, and it’ll only be 20 inches by 12 inches by 3 inches. And it only weighs five and half pounds. Not bad, you could just tosses in the trunk intake into the office.
All you have to do is unfold and extend it then secure your ankles in the foot supports. Then you use your hands on the leverage handles and stretch! This is the best kind of traction – traction that you apply and that you control. The manufacturer says that you can lengthen your skeleton by more than an inch and that will increase joint flexibility while helping you to achieve better spinal alignment.
The first thing we are going to look at is simple lumbar extenders. These consist of one flat side faced with a convex side for you to lie on, or to place between your back in the back of your chair. They help to promote proper seating posture and provide support for your lower back. Some of them can also be used without your chair. Simply lower the lumbar extender on the floor, lie on it and relax.
Back Stretcher -Ab Trainers
Then we have those devices which are combination of a back stretcher and an ad trainer. They kind of look like a chair, albeit one whose arch is back and away from your legs as you lean back in it.

I guess that you can get in an ab workout also by leaning back and then leaning forward. » Read more: Back Stretcher Overview
