Back pain is one of the most common complaints.

Put these two statistics together and you have a large population of people who are traveling whilst trying to manage their back pain as best as they can.

This works great until we decide to travel and put our trust in hotel beds. Unfortunately, you never know what bed you’re going to get!

Therefore you can’t tell if it will allow you a good night sleep or if you will wake up from a restless night feeling all twisted like a pretzel.
