I often have suggestions for things that might make good gifts for people dealing with neck or back problems. For example, have you perused my 9 Back Pain Books Not To Miss list?
And when I don't recommend, I might help you choice an item that's right for you. For example, there's my Ergonomic Chair Review list. I think all the items on that list are great, but let's face it, when you are going to plunk down a few hundred bucks - or more - it's important to review the details and make your own choice. So that's what that list helps you do.
And finally, there are times, admittedly rare, when I (almsot) flat out tell you not to buy something. Such is the case for the Spinal Stretch Home Traction Unit. I have my reasons, so check the article to learn what they are.
