Think of it this way. If it was such a wonderful piece of equipment to relieve back pain, why then do these ads always include the following.
1. only advertised on TV, late night infomercials
2. only available through TV purchase
3. only available for this price with this offer
4. never advised to use by anyone other than those that advertise the product.
5. never see or hear about them except with their ads
6. pressure tactics in the ads to buy now and cure or relieve your pain.
7. always money back offer if not satisfied, but they don't refund the shipping charge, and it's money back if the company ever sends you the money.
Answers to the above questions are simple. They are nothing more than scams to suck you out of money.
Advertised late night infomercials because that's when people in chronic pain are still awake, alone, and in pain. they are searching for anything to relieve the pain and with lack of sleep are a victim in waiting to spend the money and try anything to ease the pain.
The more pressure applied to sell the product, the more likely the chronic pain patient will be to quickly buy the product and get sucked out of their money.
You don't hear about them anywhere but on the late night infomercial because they don't work.
There is no quick easy fix to back pain, chronic pain and spinal issues.
If there was a quick fix and all these crazy machines that are offered for sale on late night infomercials don't work.
If they did work, guess what? We wouldn't have the back pain problems that we have, spinal surgeons would be out of business and we would all be fine and recovered from any kind of spine pain and problems.
That is what I figured. When I googled it the only articles were from the back for life website. I have a triple fusion in my neck with a titanium plate and 8 screws with cadaver bone fusions. I also have one fusion in my lower back with cadaver bone and bone screws from my hip. I have advanced disc degenerative disease and I do what the doctor recommends and take as little pain relief as possible. I keep moving and thinking positive that I am alive and except for the back am in pretty good health. Thanks again for the reply and the info.
Fran, I also wanted to know if anyone has ever tried this Back to Life machine because I was seriously thinking about buying one. You really do make some good points, so thank you! What got me was that the infomercial made it seem so convincing! They have supposed MD's explaining to you how exactly the machine works on your back to provide relief. They explain everything from a physiological standpoint. They also have examples of people who swear buy this machine. But, I realize that most likely the machine does not work and that people will tell you what you want to hear to get you to purchase their product.
"What got me was that the infomercial made it seem so convincing! "
That's the whole idea of the infomercials, convince you that the product works.
The have people on their that claim success with the product, BUT, there is no way to prove that any of these people actually used the product or had spine problems to begin with.
Are the paid actors to say what they do?
Are these doctors really doctors? Are they MD's after their name or are they PhD, or are they chiropractors?
Their physiological explanations are not always correct and some I have heard sound "real" but are more hocus pocus if you know what I mean, info is not factual or correct, or it's twisted to suit the purpose of the ad.
They are doing their best to sell you the product whether it is for spinal pain, or clean your house. That is the purpose of the ad.
When it comes to treating your health, the last thing you want to do is fall for some kind of infomercial ad that has claims that are far to absurd to believe.
I totally agree. There are no free meals. You can check out back 2 yourself which offer exercise program for core strength. Sorry, but you need do the work - no machine will "cure" your back pain. Anyway, they now offer free samples lesson so you might want to try this out.
Back 2 life works for me! After 35 years off and on with lower back pain and misallignment (L5).Paying a ton of money on chriopractic,I finally HAVE CONTROLL of my own health!By the way, an Orthapedic Sergeon wanted to cut to correct the problem.B.S!!! I saw results in just 2 weeks of using this unit twice a day.It more than payed for itself in that time.I still use my back 2 life once a month just to keep things in check.YES IT WORKS!!!!!
It may work for some minor back pain, but for most of us with serious spine issues, this machine is just a waster of money, time and may very well make your spine situations worse.
Various google searches will bring up sites to check out what others have said about the machine.
Most of the info that says it works is from those that are part of the company that sells the machine and there may very well be some of those people on various sites that praise the machine.
I have spoken with many people who have tried the machine and attempted to return it, but have never gotten their money back, have never had favorable results, but in fact, have made their spine problems worse.
