If it really is a spine issue then this likely won’t help you. However, if it just happens to be a muscle issue somewhere along the spine then I will tell you what I do about every single morning.
I use a 1/3 sheet Makita vibratory sander. People usually laugh when I tell them this. But I swear it gets me going in the morning, and has for about four or five years now. If you think about it this sander does the same thing as a lot of “Mickey Mouse” back massagers available on the market, except it is much much more powerful and much much better.
The 1/3 sheet size is pretty hard to find. However, here is one on Amazon.com. After going through seventeen pages on Amazon.com to find this one I ought to order this one for when mine burns up. Most of the vibratory sanders now days are the ¼ sheet size palm sanders. I don’t think I could do the same thing with the palm sander. I reach around my back and hold this thing by the grip handle with one hand and the front handle with the other hand and run it around my lower back. I've been using it so long now I can't imagine doing without it. It was a miracle for my back problems.
Here it is. However, I don’t need the dust bag.
