Bakballs Spinal Mobilisation DeviceBakballs Spinal Mobilisation Device

BakBalls is a portable easy to use product that you can lie on or lean against to treat back pain and stiffness, and BakBalls assists in the long term treatment of back-related conditions.

Benefits of bakball

  • Small and practical, easily stored and carried
  • Can be used anywhere
  • Uncomplicated, yet very effective

Nearly 100% of your back pain patients can now safely use the softer red BakBalls to maintain the benefits of your lumbar and thoracic mobilisations. Like Theraband®, start patients on the softer red BakBall then progress to the firmer black BakBall once your patients adapt. BakBalls were scientifically designed by an Australian Olympic Sports Physiotherapist and University post-graduate lecturer. The BakBalls dimensions are perfectly matched to the average vertebral width to ensure the force is applied directly to the spinal joints and muscles when your patients lie on BakBalls.

How To Use Bakballs

BakBalls is designed to reverse joint stiffness and correct slouched, hunched forward posture that significantly contributes to back pain. Poor posture significantly increases the pressure placed on the ligaments and discs supporting the spine, and can result in extension or elongation of the spine which is a major predisposing factor in the development of spinal conditions.

The balls are positioned horizontally so that the spine runs vertically between the two balls and patients lie on the device. The pressure exerted at each vertebrae of the spine mobilises the painful and stiff joints providing relief of symptoms. By moving down to each vertebrae, relief can be achieved from the upper to the lower back.


BakBalls are designed to provide a therapeutic manipulative force directly onto the most commonly painful regions of the spine.

Please Note: Bakballs should be used in conjunction with the advice from a professional practitioner.
