Question
Hi, my dad has back pain, and two of his disks are dislocated, what type of massage chairs do you recommend in buying, for this type of problem?

Answer
i dont recommend massage chairs for someone with herniated discs without examining them. i personally use human touch technology chairs or panasonic makes a good one. i have had my human touch for 10 years now with 0 problems.
ps- if your father has herniated discs in his lower back he should see a massage therapist and a chiropractor, then he needs to ask the chiropractor to release his ILIO-PSOAS muscle. that muscle connects to your discs in the lower back. It MUST be addressed when dealing with lower back pain and disc herniations. just saying:) , but what do i know ? haha - good luck!
If he is really suffering and has no relief he should try Cold laser therapy daily for 2-4 weeks.
