Miracle Back Pillow for Lower Back Pain Review Ask Jo
Hey everybody, it's Jo, and itsproduct review time. The folks at Miracle Back sent me their miracle back pillow,and Friedman, who developed it, sent me some pictures of Macie and Cass, which youknow we always love the dogs around here. Let's get started. What's very cool andunique about this back pillow, is you lie on your stomach with it. I haven't seenany kind of low back preventing pain pillows that you lie on your stomach. Soit's really really cool because this broad piece up top goes just below yourchest and then the point down here kind
of goes over your pubic area. And so yourstomach goes in the space here and actually takes the pressure off of thatarea. Especially when you're lying on your stomach, if you've got a little extra belly, maybeslightly overweight, or if you're pregnant, or something like that, if youlie on it puts that spine in a really awkward position. And this pillow reallyhelps put you in a neutral position, which is very very cool because I myselfreally like to sleep on my stomach, but I don't do it often because I have someneck issues and end up having my neck in
a really weird position. But this helpswith the neck as well as the low back because you can get your whole spine inneutral position which is super comfortable. So it's really really cool it also has a zipper here where you canopen it up, take it out, clean this separately if you need to and that'sreally nice as well. The cool thing again about lying on your stomach with thisparticular miracle back pillow, is it makes so you can do some traction ofyour back. So it opens up those spaces. So if you have something like a pinchednerve, disc issues, something like that,
getting that spine in that neutralposition this way versus in that extended position or even in that flexposition for a long period of time, it makes it so is taking pressure off ofthe nerves and the disk that might be pushing on the nerves to cause thatpain. So getting into that position and just even taking three nice deep breaths,it helps relax those muscles back there and then get that neutral position. So it's really cool again it'sunique, it's something that I haven't seen before, and I was really excited toget to try it out. So i'm gonna show you
how it looks lying down. So once you lie it down, again make surethe broad piece is up top where your chest area is going to be, and the apex isgoing to be at the bottom. Just lying down on it getting your breast areaslightly above a slot there. So coming down, getting that comfortable position.And again, you take the first three deep breaths to get everything nice andrelaxed, but they recommend lying on about 15 to 20 minutes at a time. So justlying here, deep breath in, do three those, and evenafter that first one I actually felt
just a little pop in my back that my spinewas adjusting itself which is really nice. And just laying here and relaxingif you want to. What I also like about this is you can use it as a tool fortherapy exercises as well because now that my spine is an alignment, my hipsare in alignment, if i wanted to do just a few exercises like a leg lift, I could do something like that. Just domaybe ten on one side, 10 on the other side. And the thing is since you're inthat nice neutral position you should really have a whole bunch of pain whenyou're doing that if maybe you have pain
