    BodyBack Company's Body Back Buddy Trigger Point Massager FAQ's

    What are the differences between the Body Back Buddys?
    They have 4 styles of the Body Back Buddy. The black colored Body Back Buddy referred to as the "Classic," was the original design. They redesigned the tool, hence the blue version, to be lighter weight and slightly smaller by 2" as well as enhanced the therapy knobs. One of the knobs is pointed on the end allowing for precise trigger point pressure along the spine. The handles are also slightly angled for better control. Larger people, typically men with wider girth, still prefer the bulkiness of the Classic and that is why they still manufacture it. The blue version is by far their best selling design because of it's versatility. It fits approximately 95% of their customers.

    The Body Back Buddy Jr. (purple color) and the Body Back Buddy Mini are both optimal for travel. The Jr. model has more versatility and the Mini is more compact.

    What are the materials and dimensions of the Body Back Buddies?
    The Body Back Buddies are made of high impact glassed filled nylon.

    Body Back Buddy:
    26" long
    11" wide at the widest curve
    9" wide at the smallest curve

    Body Back Buddy Classic:

    What is a Trigger Point?
    Trigger points are involuntary tight tender spots in a contracted muscle. This creates pain and dysfunction within the muscle. They are in parts of the muscle where there is decreased circulation, increased muscle contraction, spasm and increased nerve sensitivity causing a sharp pain or a constant ache. They also can cause referred pain, or pain felt in other parts of the body.

    What causes trigger points?
    Trigger points develop from either stress, repetitive or overuse of a muscle, trauma or accident, structural imbalance, improper stretching or no stretching before physical activity. When a muscle is overused or injured a contraction develops and knots occur. These knots develop when individual muscle fibers are over-stimulated and unable to release their contracted state. This contraction reduces blood flow resulting in a diminished supply of oxygen and a build up of metabolic waste. The contracted muscle (trigger point) reacts by sending out signals of pain.

    How it works/What is Trigger Point Therapy?
    You can control, decrease or eliminate your muscle pain by treating trigger points yourself. When pressure is applied to the trigger point, the pain-spasm cycle is interrupted which helps stop the contraction making the pain go away.

    With the Body Back Buddy you can enjoy the benefits of trigger point therapy in the comfort of your home or on the go. You can reach all parts of your body. You are in control. The therapeutic knobs on the Body Back Buddy are designed to stimulate the action of thumbs and elbows of a trigger point therapist.

    To treat trigger points apply sustained pressure for a period long enough to release the muscle spasm, about 10-30 seconds to deactivate it, release and relax the muscle. This increases blood flow to the muscle normalizing it and bringing it back to a healthy state. This procedure is one of the most powerful yet simple ways to treat muscle pain and discomfort.

    Suggested Use

    How to use your Body Back Buddy
    Hook the Body Back Buddy massage tool over your shoulder or around your side to treat hard to reach areas of the back, neck and shoulders. Hold it comfortably by the handles or the frame so that the therapy knob touches the affected muscle. Push away from your body with your lower or outside hand while guiding the therapy knob with the upper or inside hand. This leveraging technique creates self-directed pressure to the targeted muscle. You can also use the Body Back Buddy to apply healing pressure to many other parts of the body such as your legs, arms, feet, chest and hips. Its versatility allows you to approach each muscle from many angles in creative ways. Since there are hundreds of ways to use the Body Back Buddy Trigger Point Massager, take a moment to experiment and find out what works best for you. Use it standing, sitting or lying down.

    How Much Pressure to Apply
    Place the therapy knob on the sore muscle and apply what you consider to be a comfortable amount of pressure. When this muscle compression is released it stimulates a therapeutic response. Pressure preferences vary from one person to another deep and intense or gentle and relaxing. However, only apply as much pressure as you feel comfortable with. More pressure is not necessarily better!

    How Long to Apply Pressure
    Ten to thirty seconds is normally enough time to elicit a therapeutic response in the muscle. Applying too much pressure for too long causes the body to treat the pressure as an intrusion. For maximum results return to the treated area three to four times each session.

    The Healing Process
    Restoring health to dysfunctional muscles is a step-by-step process. The first step entails releasing the muscle's tightness and hyper contraction. This is the purpose of the Body Back Buddy. After you release the muscle, you should then stretch and hydrate it so that it can regain its natural strength, elasticity and pliability. For long-term muscle health and strength, exercise and stretching are crucial. Finally, it is important to correct the improper body mechanics and/or poor posture that can contribute to muscular problems.

    The Body Back Buddy is a personal health care tool and is not meant to replace your regular heath care provider. Please consult with your health care provider for treatment of any medical conditions or questions you may have regarding therapeutic massage.

    This has changed my life! I always have problems with my back, especially with my shoulders and neck. My muscles were always tense and I often had to deal with pulled muscles. I've had the Back Buddy for a few weeks and I've been using it every day. Since I've been using it, I haven't had one pulled muscles and all of my soreness has gone away! I first started by just applying pressure to one spot at a time, like the directions say to do. Then when the areas became more loose, I learned you can also massage the points in circles, which really helped more to relax the muscles. I highly recommend this product.

    By Barbara (Lake in the Hills , IL )

    I bought this massager a few months back and I love it. I get a lot of neck, shoulder and mid back pain and this really helps to get the knots out and relieves the tension headaches that I get. I loved this so much that I bought another one as a gift for my neighbor who also has neck problems. She loves it too and says it works much better at getting out the knots than her husband's lousy massages! : )

    By Teresa (Jeffersonville , IN )

    This product works great at reducing the muscle tension in the back. I use it everyday now. At first, I used it too much and made the muscles sore but now I use is for 5 minutes or so at a time. The muscle tension knots in my back are almost gone and these have been there for over 20 years. So nice to have a product that actually works! Thanks for such a great invention! I have referred many of my friends and even the mail man bought one for his wife.
