VersaBack Low Back Exercise System ::
Reduce Low Back Pain and Instability:
The VersaBack combines a specially shaped Swiss ball with a supportive frame to form an exercise station for low back strengthening and rehabilitation. The VersaBack's unique configuration also make it a versatile support for many other core strengthening exercises. Regular use of the VersaBack will strengthen muscles that stabilize your spine, which can help significantly reduce low back pain.
Why the VersaBack is Better than a Swiss Ball:
Swiss balls (sometimes called physioballs) have become very popular for balance training, and are a challenging addition to many training programs. They decrease the stability of an exercise, which forces your body to rapidly contract more muscles to maintain balance and proper form. Unfortunately, Swiss balls add too much instability to some exercises, and can put some individuals at risk for further injury.
The VersaBack uses the Swiss ball's best feature - the flexible top surface - and adds to it a stable, elevated base. This makes the VersaBack easier to get on and off of, keeps the ball from rolling out from under you, and makes it possible to perform a wider range of exercises.
Note that the VersaBack's ball can also be removed from the frame, which allows you to perform most standard Swiss ball exercises, if so desired. And it's unique peanut shape provides a wider, more comfortable support surface than other balls.
