Back Muscle Exercises While You Relax
Determine the length of your back from the center of your neck to your
lower loin just below the waistline. Insert the tops onto the pins in a
position that is comfortable to suit the length of your back.
Lie on your back making sure that the two #2 tops on the lower back area are just above your hipbone in contact with your loin muscles. The upper back, neck, and shoulder tops should not be in direct contact with your head but touching your neck and shoulder muscles.
Finally, make sure you are perfectly centered on the tops with your muscles on each side of the spine in contact with the tops. You may move your head to the sides, lift your arms and bend your knees to increase the pressure against the tops.

Take all the high tops off at the neck end and put the pad over the remaining tops. Lie on your stomach, and make sure you are perfectly centered on the tops in your abdominal area.
