I am hunched over a desk nine hours a day, my husband is hunched over his welding equipment all day, and we have the worst back and neck pain daily, along with knots covering our shoulder and neck areas. This tool is something you can use on your own — it reaches all the tough spots, and it really helps to break down some of that hard tissue. After a few days of use, I noticed a huge difference! My posture was better, my back no longer hurt while sitting at work, and my neck and back finally starting cracking like they used to before I sat on my ass nine hours a day. It’s been incredible with helping with our chronic pain. Highly recommend!" —mrsh810

    amazon.com

    "We use them while camping, I use them for naps, and until very recently my husband wore them every night to drown out the sound of me snoring.
