Sore No More

When back pain strikes, who has time to lie in bed? We found a simple, effective way to ease the pain without putting your life on hold. Called A Better Back, it’s a lumbar support pillow that can be worn like a backpack if you’re on the go, or strapped onto a chair if you’re working at a desk. You can use it everyday as a gentle reminder not to slouch (sitting up straight allows for deeper breathing and more oxygen to the brain, which is great right around 4:00 p.m. when our energy levels always seem to plummet). The pillow comes with two thermal packs, one for the microwave and one for the freezer. So when pain flares up, you can alternate between hot and cold therapy – a proven method to relieve all types of soreness and muscle tension. Inventor Claudia Rimoli designed the pillow after her own troubles with debilitating back pain. Now she takes care of her back without toning down her energetic life, which lately has Claudia rallying support for a local women’s shelter and championing the Darius Goes West Foundation (A Better Back donates a percentage of sales to this organization that raises awareness of Duchenne muscular dystrophy). Gio wrote to tell us about A Better Back. He says the pillow changed his life — so much so that he went to work with Claudia. Now he’s helping spread the word about A Better Back so more of us can enjoy life without being sidelined by back pain.

    I'm Claudia Rimoli, founder of A Better Back and I am thrilled to have our company selected for today's feature. My associate, Giovanni Ferro and I would like to thank the Daily Grommet Team for this wonderful opportunity and for making us a part of the Daily Grommet family.

    For the past 4 years I made it my mission to create a tool that brings comfort, promotes better posture and alleviates pain to those suffering from the results of spending long periods of time working at a desk or driving in a seat. I am proud to say that the result of my research is, A Better Back! A Better Back is ergonomically designed, using temperature sensitive memory foam for the perfect fit. It molds to your upper or lower back, providing comfortable and firm support to maintain balanced spinal alignment. Its support relieves pressure on important nerves and muscles in your back that can become inflamed and painful. A Better Back can help to relieve back pain, muscle soreness and stiffness as well as alleviate the pain associated with back injury and chronic conditions such as sciatica, scoliosis, arthritis, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis and muscular dystrophy.

    We at A Better Back are strong believers in "giving back" to charity; that is why we have decided to "Give Back with A Better Back." Therefore, with every purchase, A Better Back will donate a percentage back to charity. It's that simple to help yourself while supporting others in need.

    Furthermore, we can't wait to hear all your questions today. A common one we always get is: Does this help me if I have____? and 9 times out of 10, the answer is YES it Will! Why? Because A Better Back is not only for those suffering from a health condition, back pain or bad posture but also for those seeking comfort in general. There are multiple applications that successfully benefit from using A Better Back, that is why I encourage you to share your questions and/or concerns with us today.

    While suffering from a rare kidney stone disorder for years, I gave up on the idea that anything short of pain killers would ease the discomfort. After using A Better Back just once, I noticed the difference. I now use mine everyday! It's amazing! The cold element reduces swelling in my back caused by the kidney stones and the hot element relaxes me so I am able to rest. A Better Back is truly a miracle!

I can tell my posture is so much better when I am using the pillow. It is an exceptional product. I love to use it when it is cold as well. It is so soothing on my back! This is a MUST HAVE ITEM! Enjoy!!

    LOVE love LoVe the Better Back! In fact, I call it "my Binky". I use the Better Back everyday while working and it has made a HUGE difference in the way my back feels and even effects my energy level. I have scolliosis and from using the Better Back I forget about my lower back pain! It's wonderful.

    Back to my nickname for the Better Back, "my Binky". I came down with a sever kidney infection (first and hopefully last) and the Better Back did not leave my side for three days. The comfort/heat it brought to my lower back/kidneys was AMAZING!

    I now own two...one at the office, one at home/travel! It's great to see the people behind this fantastic product, Thank You Claudia and Gio and Thank You Daily Grommet!

    It has started to cool off where we live and many of my friends tell me how they shiver through hockey and football games/practices. A Better Back was originally designed to help people sit up straight and to help relieve pain, but being so transportable makes it ideal to help keep you warm/comfortable at those chilly sporting events, too.

    What Claudia has invented based on her needs is something that fits a gap in my chiropractic sports medicine practice here on Miami Beach. For well over a decade, I've been trying to get patients to apply ice and moist heat (at different times during their treatment plan) and very often get excuse after excuse as to why they cannot. The #1 excuse is that they don't have the ability to apply ice or heat at work. There's no kitchen, nothing to chill or heat it in.

    Well, A Better Back has solved this. With a simple (and good looking I might add) device, a patient with an acute problem can get up to 8 hours of ice throughout his or her work day. Someone with a chronic problem can get up to 3 hours of moist heat therapy. a couple minutes more in a microwave and you get up to an additional 3 hours of soothing moist heat.

    I carry this product in my office for my patients and I have 1 at home that I use for myself. Since I'm also an athlete, I have to take care of myself quite often and this is just so easy to take with me when I'm on the go.

    And the best....for those of you that cycle long distances or do intense mountain biking, throw a nicely chilled "A Better Back" on your back and stay cool throughout your ride.

    I'm sold. What a great product. Kudos to you Claudia for such a wonderul and practical invention!!!

    I had a terrible accident, and fell off of a 20 ft ladder. luckily nothing was broken, just a bulging disk and very sore bruised muscles. For the following weeks the only thing that would relieve my lower back pain was the Better Back. It followed me everywhere. Car, office chair, couch, even while in bed. The option of heat or cold was truly a blessing. Thank you Claudia and thank you Better Back.

    As a yoga practitioner and teacher, I suggest it to my students for its therapeutic benefits.

    I use it personally and have shared it with so many that love the pillow.

    The cold stays cold for so long! We brought it to a football game to keep cool in the Florida sun.

    Everyone that I have turned on to this product is in love with it.

    BTW... Claudia is the quintessential businesswoman with a conscious and the Better Back is just another expression of her love.

    I received this pillow as a present while working at a trade show. I put one of the two elements in the freeze that evening. The next morning I woke up with a tight sore back from lifting heavy boxes at the trade show. I slipped the frozen element in the lumbar support pillow and it was like magic. This support pillow offers the ability to ice your back completely and evenly. The soreness in my back disappeared. I am most impressed with the ice because it stays very cold for 6 + hours. It is very easy to alternate hot/cold therapy because it comes with two elements. I use this pillow everyday. It makes a great present.

    A better back has been a real blessing for my husband. Not only for his back but also for his neck, shoulders, elbow and ankles. He restores old houses which puts stress on different areas of his body, he has learned to use the hot and cold packs for effective pain relief where ever he has pain.

    There is no way to fit this product to my office chair which is a very standard office chair (ie it's not an executive size chair) In fact I just spent 20 minutes tugging and pulling at the straps trying to get it to stay in place somehow and now my back is killing me lol!

    There is nowhere on the better back website to contact the company other then leaving reviews/praise on their Facebook site.

    I highly suggest a 'contact us' link on their website for better customer service.

    I have used my Better Back pillow consistently since I injured my lower back. It is the first thing I pull out when pain starts. My family swears by it for athletic over-extertion to menstrual pain. It's comforting on my days without back pain too as I fall back into that heated plushness. Now that I am in menopause- it has become my new Bed Buddy providing me with cooling relief to the night sweats and hot flashes. It's really a miracle product on so many levels.

    I received this pillow as a present while working at a trade show. I put one of the two elements in the freeze that evening. The next morning I woke up with a tight sore back from lifting heavy boxes at the trade show. I slipped the frozen element in the lumbar support pillow and it was like magic. This support pillow offers the ability to ice your back completely and evenly. The soreness in my back disappeared. I am most impressed with the ice because it stays very cold for 6 + hours. It is very easy to alternate hot/cold therapy because it comes with two elements. I use this pillow everyday. It makes a great present.

    A better back has been a real blessing for my husband. Not only for his back but also for his neck, shoulders, elbow and ankles. He restores old houses which puts stress on different areas of his body, he has learned to use the hot and cold packs for effective pain relief where ever he has pain.

    I have read a few other blogs related to this subject in the past couple of days in doing a research report for my boss. I have to say that what you're saying here makes perfect sense and is helping me to get my head around this subject. Do you have any other blogs you could recommend to help my research?

    Thank you,

    There is no way to fit this product to my office chair which is a very standard office chair (ie it's not an executive size chair) In fact I just spent 20 minutes tugging and pulling at the straps trying to get it to stay in place somehow and now my back is killing me lol!

    There is nowhere on the better back website to contact the company other then leaving reviews/praise on their Facebook site.

    I highly suggest a 'contact us' link on their website for better customer service.

    I have used my Better Back pillow consistently since I injured my lower back. It is the first thing I pull out when pain starts. My family swears by it for athletic over-extertion to menstrual pain. It's comforting on my days without back pain too as I fall back into that heated plushness. Now that I am in menopause- it has become my new Bed Buddy providing me with cooling relief to the night sweats and hot flashes. It's really a miracle product on so many levels.

    I recently received my A Better Back lumbar support pillow. I had a minor challenge with my pillow I called Claudia at A Better Back and she could not have been more helpful and accomodating! She solved my problem, we had a wonderful chat about the product and I will certainly be passing information about this product around. Thank you Claudia and my back thanks you!
