Despite its terrible name I have to admit I am a great fan of the back knobber! I own one use it to relieve tension in my neck and shoulders and also in the piriformis muscle.
It’s very simple; it allows you to apply pressure to trigger points and areas of muscle tension in your back that would normally be very difficult to reach. It’s also shaped very cleverly to allow you to increase or decrease the pressure on the point.
There are other similar devices to be had, the Thera Cane Massager looks a bit similar although seems to have a greater choice of massage head on it.
For smaller areas the Knobbles look good or you can get massage balls that let you apply point pressure to small areas.
The Amazon store below* shows some of the latest back pain massage products available including the backnobber - my favourite!

What are the * links?
There are two types of links on this website. Any which have a * are affiliate links which take you to the product website which then pay this site. The second type is not an affiliate link and has no *. For you the user there is no difference, the product is the same whether you go via an * link or not. Also, the things I write are never affected by whether I am getting revenue or not. If I can't find an affiliate link for a useful product, I will still include it in exactly the same way. For more details about affiliate links and what happens to the money earned from them read this page.
