  • Doctor Recommended Luxury Bed

    This mattress provides luxuriously soft yet strong support where it’s needed, cashmere topper and the gel memory foam work in unison to cradle and support the spine comfortably. The overall design and engineering with the addition of cashmere makes this a true mattress that can be described as sleeping on a cloud.

    With 5 layers of advanced materials, this mattress encompasses 4 layers of memory foam that has been designed to provide the perfect balance between soft and firm. The perfect blend for sleepers that prefer the middle ground. With the mattress being entirely made of memory foam a good night’s sleep would not be difficult to attain.

This highly designed fill can comfortably support and cradle your neck to the optimal spinal position for a good night’s rest. Also with a 10 year warranty, this pillow is a no brainer.

  • Doctor Recommended Home Exercises for Back Pain

    I practically prescribe Yoga to nearly all my patients that suffer from low back pain, these exercises in this video series are by far the most effective and simple to use, especially for the beginner. The importance of stretching the spine and all the muscles is paramount to a healthy back. The instructors are top notch and video production quality is professional grade.

  • Doctor Recommended E-Stimulation Therapy

    TENS 7000 2nd Edition Digital TENS Unit with accessories

    The importance of electro-stimulation in cases of back or neck pain is essential in the treatment protocol. It provides relief and increases blood flow to allow quicker recovery. I use e-stim therapy as part of my office procedure. With technology getting better now, this once in-office treatment can be used at home or on the road. Fun fact, I actually used this on an 8 hour flight during a family vacation, saved my life!!

  • Doctor Recommended Home Treatment for Neck Pain

    Saunders Cervical Hometrac Deluxe

    If you currently receive therapy from your doctor for neck pain and your doctor prescribed this for home use, then this is a great addition to your treatments. Gentle traction can alleviate the discs and relieve the pain in the neck. On the pricey side, but the company has been around for a long time producing good solid medical devices for various spinal ailments.

  • Doctor Recommended Back Brace

    Aspen Lumbar Support Back Brace for Lumbar Support

    When the back is hurting and you must go to work or do your chores, then this may help ease the pain. This brace can help to hydrate the discs, as well as reduce the pain, and ease the muscles spasms one has with back pain. Slim and comfortable design, not bulky and intruding will work under clothes, but summer time heat is not very good. Too much sweat.

  • Doctor Recommended Analgesic Cream

    Biofreeze Pain Relief Gel 3 oz. Roll-on

    If you can’t go to the doctor for relief, use this to reduce the pain. I use this all the time in my office. Instant pain relief cools and numbs the area. The roll-on is especially effective, no mess, just roll on. Portable and easy to use. Always have this on hand, along with the TENS.

  • Doctor Recommended Massager

    Thumper Maxi Pro Professional Electric Massager

    This is the most asked about piece of equipment in my office, everyone loves this. They all ask if they can take it, unfortunately I have to say no. Now the friendly folks at Amazon sell this, so you can use at home. A great well-built massager that has a variable speed option. A good investment regardless if you have back pain or not, good for sore achy muscles.

  • Doctor Recommended Blood Pressure Monitor

    Omron 5 Series Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor

    Everyone should know what their blood pressure is, just like their weight. Easy to use, big bright numbers, and accurate. A great addition in the home for all members of the family. If you don’t know what the numbers mean, then ask Google.
