Products And Books

  • RockBack – if you check out my blog article on sitting, you can see that when I wrote it I wasn’t aware that there was a chair that allowed you to sit both passively and actively. The British made RockBack will let you do this. A patient of mine got one and tipped me off about it. I now use one. Highly recommended.
  • Spina-Bac – this back support device (sold by Applied Healthcare Ltd) is perfect for use in the car or the office chair.
  • The Backfriend may be worth a try for car and office use.
  • Water pillow – this water pillow, sold by Mediflow, is the best solution for those who are never quite happy with a regular pillow.
  • Fantastic book on posture, movement and back pain – this is one of the best books I’ve come across on this subject. Read it, implement it, and it will make a difference.
  • MRI imaging – this facility in Wimpole St, London provides MR scanning for circa £250.00, including a radiologist’s report.
