After riding the Body Float, it is
my opinion, that it MAY just be that one thing many cyclists are looking
for to assist their lower backs, reduce fatigue and improve
performance TODAY and in the long term.
1) An apparent reduction of vertical compression forces which
decrease force through lower back... anyone riding a cyclo-cross bike,
HT mtn bike or road bike on a rough surface can related to LBP when
riding these surfaces! The Body Float helps reduce the
2) With a
seemingly decreased lower back trauma/stress the muscles of the lumbar
spine are not fatigued as quickly allowing for better and prolonged
stabilization of the lumbar spine and of the pelvis.
Compressive forces d/t intraabdominal pressure increases in conjunction
with spinal flexion (being bent over when cycling) are significant
factors in the development of lumbar disc delamination (the discs are
damaged and are weakened in
other words) and become not only pain generators but also can lead to
worse conditions... if we repeatedly cause stress/trauma to our lumbar
discs in particular degeneration and potentially herniations can occur
causing you decreased time on the bike, significant injury and
potentially decreasing your athletic career.
