No, it complements manual therapy. People will still go to manual therapists for the human touch and to get treatment on areas of the body like the legs which are not treated directly by BackHug.
Although BackHug could benefit the whole body, we are sure people will continue to turn to manual therapists for specialised treatment. Still, many are too busy to make a one hour appointment outside of working hours or are unable to afford the full price of manual therapy.
BackHug fills the gaps by offering 10 - 15 minute sessions at home, at work, or other convenient locations at an affordable price.
For certain conditions, regular use of BackHug can even improve the impact of specialist manual treatment, so that BackHug and the manual therapist work “hand in hand.”
