Features

  • Designed by a Physiotherapist

    The Back Pedal was designed by a Doctor of Physical Therapy named Chris Beddoe. He has used his expertise to design a device that would treat the underlying cause of lower back pain in a simple, inexpensive way.

  • Stretches the Muscles

    One benefit of the device is that by doing a series of simple moves on a daily basis, you can stretch out the muscles in your back. Stretching lengthens out the muscles, which can improve joint flexibility and range of motion.

  • Lessens Joint Pain

    The Back Pedal is supposed to realign the joints in your lower back. One result of this is to decrease joint pain, and not just on a temporary basis. Since the misalignment in many cases was causing the pain, the pain relief may be long term.

  • Strengthens the Pelvis

    The Back Pedal strengthens, realigns, and stabilizes the pelvis. This is because knee, back, and hip pain originate in the pelvis. The pain is often ultimately caused by a pelvic misalignment or a weak or destabilized body part. Your pelvis is so important because it's the primary support for both the upper and lower body.

  • Relieves Back Pain

    The primary goal of the device is to help to relieve your back pain, on your own, without running to a lot of appointments or taking a lot of medication. In order to do this, you do a series of exercises every day which help support both the back and the surrounding areas.

  • Realigns the Spine

    Issues with the spine, such as misalignment, can be at the root of back pain. Therefore realigning the spine is a key goal of the device and program.

  • Bonus Device

    There's a 'double offer' where if you buy one you get a second 'free'. If you look carefully at the fine print, however, you see that the second device isn't free - it's half price.

  • Money-Back Guarantee

    Doctor Beddoe is offering a 100% money-back guarantee. If you're dissatisfied with The Back Pedal, send it back within 30 days of the delivery date for a refund.

Pros

  • Easy to Use

    The Back Pedal is a simple-looking device, and quite easy to use. There are a few simple and clear steps to understand in order to use it correctly. It doesn't involve understanding any kind of technology or putting something together on your own. Basically, the device isn't intimidating.

  • You Can Use it At Home

    This product can be used in the privacy of your own home. Many people don't like doing exercises in front of others. It also means you can do them without having to leave the house. More than likely this will increase your chances of keeping up with the daily routine.

  • Saves You Money

    If the device works as advertised, it could potentially save you a lot of money. This includes money for medications, medical treatments, and products that you shouldn't need after using this device regularly.

  • Provides Long-Term Relief

    According to the inventor, the beauty of this simple device is that it doesn't just give you short term relief from your pain. It deals with the root causes of the pain, realigning the joints around the back and supporting it.

  • Reasonably Priced

    The device isn't wildly expensive or out of range for a lot of people. Those who need it could probably purchase it, especially considering that it could save them even more money in the long run.

Cons

  • Doesn't Look Comfortable

    This device doesn't look like it would be comfortable to use. Even the pads don't look very inviting, or like they would protect you much from the hard bar. It's unlikely that people would be rushing to use this every day based on appearance.

  • Poor Choice of Name

    If you look at the pictures showing how to use The Back Pedal on the website, you can kind of see what the company is getting at calling it The Back Pedal. It's meant to treat your back, yes, and it also kind of resembles a back-peddling motion when you do the exercises. However, the 'pedal' connection isn't really clear enough to justify calling it that. You expect the device itself to be or have some kind of pedal, and meanwhile, you only get the handlebars. It seems like they just found a cute name and tried to make it fit - unsuccessfully.

  • Looks Unappealing

    The Back Pedal may look simple to use and unintimidating, but it's not attractive. It looks like someone removed the top bar from a bicycle and marketed it for another use. The blue color is a nice shade, but fairly plain. There are no other color options on offer. Basically, it resembles a cold, hard-looking bar that doesn't seem like it would be nice to use.

  • Not Enough Personal Support

    It's possible that someone sitting at home using this device would need some support in terms of clarifying the steps and using the device correctly. Without this help, people could end up doing the exercises wrong and doing more damage than good. They may do harm to the muscles and joints by moving improperly.

    Having said this, it's also true that there are some videos on the Internet with the technique demonstrated and explained by Doctor Beddoe.

  • May Discourage Other Solutions

    Given that the inventor professes this to be such a revolutionary tool for treating back pain, it's possible that it would encourage people to focus only on this solution. They may forfeit other treatments that could be helpful.

How it's Different from Competitors

There don't appear to be any products very similar to this one, but there are devices that profess to help your back using stretching and other exercises. These include teeter tables, which have the user strapped to a rotating table that stretches out the back. These are quite a bit more expensive than this one. There are yoga trapeze type devices to stretch the back for twice the price of this product, and also a simpler but expertly designed device that you lie on to stretch and strengthen the back. This product costs half the price of The Back Pedal.
