What’s the Chirp Wheel?

The Chirp Wheel comes in 3 sizes and can support up to 500 pounds. It’s doctor recommended and comes with a happy-back guarantee. 

The largest 12-inch Gentle wheel is easy on the back and gives the largest overall stretch. This wheel is best suited for overall pain, upper and lower back and can also be used to stretch hips and open the chest. The medium, 10-inch wheel offers a mix of overall and targeted stretch and is ideal for use with a wall. The Medium Chirp Wheel is ideal for transitioning to the smallest, 6-inch wheel which gives a deep tissue targeted stretch. The Deep Tissue Chirp Wheel is great for neck and posture correction. 

How does it compare to a foam roller? 

The Chirp Wheel is designed with a perfect 5-inch width which fits perfectly between your shoulder blades. The wheel will align your spine and reach difficult knots. Foam rollers, on the other hand, cannot effectively target the deep tissue around the spine as they are too wide. 

How can the Chirp Wheel be used for back pain? 

Here are 10 poses to reduce tension and improve flexibility that can be done with the assistance of the Chirp Wheel. We used the largest and the smallest wheel for these poses.
