Back on Track Back Brace?

Has anyone had any experience with the back brace by back on track?

I've been having tight lower back muscles for a while now and my spine almost feels weak and since the Back on Track worked well for my horse I looked into their human line....

I trust it to work but I'd rather not spend 70$ on something that really doesn't, so I came looking for reviews. :)

Thanks in advance!

I get on my horse bareback, sit tall, loosen my hips and spine and let the action of walking "massage" my back. Many muscles benefit from this passive therapy.

If you add holding your shoulders straight while you do this (which can also be done in a saddle) you REALLY give your core muscles a heck of a workout! If you want a tight core and a skinny waist, holding your shoulders stock still and making your hips, abdomin, and lower back take all the movement of the walking/trotting horse - it only takes a couple minutes to understand what kind of workout that is!

I'm late to the party, but I bought one last year for my parents. Both wear it when they have back issues, and both said it works. My trainer has one on too quite often (she has a bad back), and she was the one who recommended it to me in 1st place.
