Back Joy?

Has any one tried this back orthotic from the EDITED I've spent so much money on junk before trying to make my pain more tolerable that I'd hate to throw another $50.00 bucks out the window. But if it works, hey I'd spent that money in a flash!



  • ...about the orthotic device, but I just checked out this site & ordered a month's supply of their "Rub-On Relief"...sounds good to me (not endorsing anything, mind you) Been using BioFreeze from PT last year & this stuff promises no "locker-room smell"...LOL! Hey, at this point, I'll try ANYTHING non-invasive!

    If it doesn't work for my flaming back, maybe I can drink it?! :<

    Big storm here---rain/sleet/ice/huge winds...I'm ready to jump in the Lake w/ the Polar Bears! (water temp is 37...)One huge ice-pak!

  • :) i doubt if they will give you any better tips than the ones found here on the forum from qualified doctors. =D> the forum is thick with "Treatments" and what may or may not help your pain. i would be very cautious about them wanting your money. :? i looked at the site and some of the products seem ok but i didn't see anything worth $50.00. good luck! Jenny :)
  • Well I have recently ordered this product so will give it a try for my back. Really looking for it to help me be more comfortable sitting for longer periods at work and in the car and maybe maintain better posture.
  • OK so I received my Back Joy from lose the back pain and have had it for a few days now. It took me a little while to get used to it and get the right positioning but now I like it. It is very portable and slimline. A lot easier to take with me on public transport than my cushion I used. What I have noticed most is that my lower back doesn't have that achey feeling I used to get after sitting for a longish time and I think I sit in a better position. Early days but so far so good.
  • So you're liking it? Do you think it's worth $50.00?

    I had totally forgotten about this thing. We have two nice, firm, wing back chairs, so I have a couple good chairs to sit in. I can't sit on my love seats anymore, they're just too soft.

    Hoping it works out for you.

  • I have one too and it really helps me to be able to sit for longer without feeling uncomfortable.

    I know people who have bought more than one. One at home, one in the car and one at work.

    I move mine about, but know I would miss it if I forgot it and left it somewhere.

  • Back joy did not make any difference at all in my pain levels. I tried it for a week and ended up sending it back. First of all they billed me for two, and sent me two, even if i ordered only one. Well I got reimbursed for it and sent it back,still gave it a chance, but ended up sending the other one back also. With the last one I had trouble getting reimbursed. Take claimed they never received it, but I had the receipts and the ra numbers etc for proof, so after a couple of phone calls I finally got my money back. Definitely not worth all the trouble. But I guess I am also ready to try anything to get rid of the pain.
