Frequently Asked Questions
I’m wondering if anyone has used this slant board who has also used one of the rolling stretchers that rolls one foot at a time. Which you’d recommend
I've used foot rollers and also this slant board. They address different issues. The slant board works to lengthen and strengthen the spine and legs. The rollers massage all the energy points of the body which have specific nodes on the soles of the feet.
Suspicion that this may only work for women's feet? Anyone can give some feedback, if toes are hanging off the top and if that reduces effectiveness?
Wear 11 1/2 no problem.
Will using this grow my calves or simply just stretch them?
The slant board can help you stretch leg muscles properly before/after workout and improve your flexibility and posture. Other equipment and activities are needed to grow your calves, but the slant board does help to reduce the risk of injury and it is beneficial to the body recovery.
Does anyone know how to put the metal support back in once it falls out ?
There is a horizontal socket underneath (in the middle). You could push the metal support back in. Or contact our customer support through the Amazon buyer-seller email system, we will get the problem solved asap.
