In short, the Stamina Inline back stretch bench provides a simple and comfortable way to stretch the back and decompress the spine. And, you don’t have to hang upside down. Plus, this lightweight and compact machine allows us to do our own home therapy from the comfort of, well, home.
Not only can it help reduce lower back pain, this basic device can help minimize hip and knee pain as well. Without the addition pressure from gravity, some people find these horizontal back stretchers more comfortable and just as effective as inversion tables.
In other words, you don’t have to hang upside down to stretch out your back at the end of the day. In fact, you can comfortably lay on your back while watching TV, talking on the phone or reading a book.
The Stamina back stretcher includes an easy-to-use cranking lever that slowly and gently extends the length of the traction bench.
Therefore, you can safely decompress your joints a little bit at a time.
The contoured, high density foam ankle and arm supports make this device extra comfortable to use. In addition, you can adjust the width of the shoulder supports for ideal comfort.
Note: For these reasons, people find this back stretcher easy to use on a daily basis and counteract the effects of everyday wear-and-tear on our bodies.
How to Use a Stamina Inline Back Stretch Bench:
Not surprisingly, some professional chiropractic doctors use and recommend the Stamina traction bench to their patients.
This back stretcher provides a convenient alternative for people who don’t want to use inversion tables or hang upside down.
For example, some people find that inversion tables can create pressure on the ankles and therefore feel uncomfortable. With a flat traction bench, however, you don’t have to worry about the additional gravity pull on your feet.
As Dr. Jonathon Mainieri explains below, the gentle stretching allows the spinal discs to decompress. Thus, fluid can come into the spine between the discs and help prevent muscle spasms, pain and stiffness.

A Stamina back stretcher may even benefit people who sit for long periods of time, have poor posture or stressful jobs. I mean, doesn’t that include most of us? =)
Stamina Inline Back Stretch Bench Review:
The follow video demonstrates how this unique at-home traction device can stretch your back, shoulders, knees hips and ankles simultaneously. Stamina reviews how to use the machine, including how to get in and out of it safely and easily.
Compared to traditional inversion therapy tables, the back stretcher is easier to move, carry and store under a bed. It takes up very little space, plus it’s more portable.
The design of the backrest and ankle supports looks very similar to inversion benches. However, you can manually extend the supports to allow for an even greater stretch. Not to mention, it only costs about $150 (cheap when compared to physical therapy or chiropractor visits).
