Cause and solution

Through our lifestyle (sitting behind the computer, in the car, watching tv and stress) we spend many hours in a bad posture.

This bad posture causes a corrective muscle tension in the area of the neck and lower back.

The muscles in our neck and lower back constantly have to compensate for our wrong posture resulting in pain in the back, shoulders or neck, including RSI or the ‘mouse arm’.

A balanced combination of massage, stretching and exercise is the solution to theses problems.

The Back- or Rolastretcher, Giant Rolastretcher or the combination of Rola- and Neckstretcher can solve your problem. The stretchers massages, stretches and mobilizes your back every day and your complaints will quickly disappear.
