Chirp Back Roller Review
Is your back killing you? According to research from the American Chiropractic Association, over 80% of Americans will experience back pain in their lives. Over one-half of all working Americans will have to deal with back pain this year, which accounts for more than 264-million lost working days.
Back pain is a real thing, and it hurts.
In 2015, the Plexus Wheel burst onto the yoga and physical therapy scene. The product is the brainchild of Tate Stock, who self-funded the project. Stock put $400 into building Plexus wheels, and saw a $12,000 return on his money, inspiring him to pursue the venture after he graduated from Brigham Young University.
In 2016 and 2017, sales of the Plexus wheel were skyrocketing, so much that Stock had to open a shipping company – ShipStud to handle the logistics responsibilities of the business. In 2018, Stock decided to open a Kickstarter to raise money to fund the updated model of the Plexus Wheel Plus, which would eventually become the Chirp Wheel+.
The Kickstarter was a smashing success, raising over $1.5-million in 45-days, making it the 4th most-funded Kickstarter project out of Utah. Today, the Chirp Wheel+ is a household name among physical therapists and chiropractors around the United States.
In this detailed review, we have provided an analysis of the Chirp Wheel Pro along with a key comparison of its features and usability.

How Does the Chirp Wheel Work?
The Chirp Wheel+ has a specific design to target your spine and supporting muscles, stretching them out to relieve compression that drives nerve and joint pain. The Chirp wheel features design and construction with injection-molded polymers that are lightweight, and strong enough to support up to 500-lbs.
On the exterior, you get a 20-mm thick padding that relieves the pressure from the wheel, helping you to maximize your stretch. The Chirp wheel is 5-inches wide, with a specific design to kit between your shoulder blades during use.
The Chirp Wheel+ kit comes with three different size wheels included. The 12-inch provides the broadest and most comfortable stretch along your spine, allowing for a gentle movement of the joints in the spine. With the 12-inch wheel, you roll along the entire length of your back to open all the vertebrae in your spine.
The 10-inch wheel provides you with a focused stretch, and it's suitable for use on the mid and upper back. However, please don't use it on the lower back, or it causes pain.
The 6-inch wheel helps with targeted deep-tissue stretching and massage for isolated problem areas. Please don't use the 6-inch wheel on your lower back, but it's suitable for rolling out your hips, calves, and shoulders.
The Chirp Wheel – Better than a Foam Roller for Curing Back Pain
So, what's the difference between the Chirp Wheel+ and a standard foam roller?
The Chirp Wheel+ comes in three sizes for different applications, as we mentioned earlier. However, the Chirp Wheel+ has a unique design component – the groove in the wheel's center.
This grove contours to your spine, gently pushing the supporting spinae and trapezius muscles apart as you roll. You are getting the vertical movement as you would with the foam roller, but you're also getting a horizontal stretch. That adds up toa 4-way stretch that feels amazing with every roll.
