Chirp Wheel Review: Goodbye Back Pain

From there, slowly roll back and forth, using your feet to move and stabilize you. Voilà! You’re now one step closer to becoming a chirp wheel master. With practice and a little bit of confidence (and gasping), you’ll be as limber as Gumby in a Las Vegas heatwave.

Frequently Asked Questions About Using The Chirp Wheel

  1. Is the Chirp Wheel safe to use?
  2. How long should I use the Chirp Wheel?
  3. Does it hurt to use the Chirp Wheel?

1. Is the Chirp Wheel Safe?

Actually, yes it is IF you follow the instructions and heed the precautions. In fact, the Chirp Wheel is FDA registered as a Class-1 Medical Device. What does that mean? It simply means that you have a low to moderate risk of injuring yourself while using it.

In most instances it is considered safe, however there are some contraindications such as if you have a history of spinal stenosis, back surgery, or the like. If you have doubts, ALWAYS consult your physician first.

2. How Long Should You Use The Chirp Wheel?

On Chirp’s website, they state that using it 5-10 minutes several times a day is ok. From our experience, we noticed a significant amount of relief within just a couple minutes. Whether more is better is debatable, but use your best judgement and do what works best for you. Like anything, consistency is always key to seeing improvement, so keep at it!

3. Does It Hurt To Use The Chirp Wheel?

This question is subjective since we all experience different levels of pain, but here’s what we thought. Initially, using the Chirp Wheel for the very first time was fairly uncomfortable. It wasn’t necessarily pain, but it bordered along it.

That’s really not too surprising since our posture is oftentimes pretty poor from being hunched over a computer most days. As promised, the severity lessened the more we used it and did notice a significant amount of tension release–especially between the shoulders. Oh sweet relief!

Again, ease into using the Chirp Wheel slowly. It’s a great tool, but everyone is different and it may not be a right fit for your present condition.

A Few Final Observations and Cautions

For all intents and purposes, the Chirp Wheel is a great device to help you address some lingering back problems, but it’s not a cure-all. Ongoing pain is a huge red flag, so stop being stubborn and go see a professional already.

Also, balancing on the Chirp Wheel can take a little getting used to. Because of how narrow it is, there is the possibility of it toppling over if you don’t center your body weight. That happened to us and it’s something you too should be aware of.

This will never cross your mind until it happens, but if you have long hair, tie it up stat! Long, dangling hair tends to get rolled over and results in a nice hair tug. OUCH! Don’t let it happen to you.
