  1. Warm up first. Make sure you have gone for a walk or done some general exercise before getting on the Denneroll. Your chiropractor may suggest a Prolordotic Stretcher as a warm up.
  2. Follow the instructions on placement and how to increase the time on the device, carefully. If anything is too uncomfortable or your are not sure about the position of the Denneroll, stop and speak to your chiropractor.
  3. Lie on a yoga mat or on the carpet, NOT the bed
  4. Have your arms out at approximately 45degrees, with your palms up. This helps to gently stretch your chest area.
  5. Have knees bent, feet flat on the floor, unless instructed by your chiropractor to place a rolled up towel or Lumbar Denneroll under your low back.
  6. Do not use your hands, keep arms down on the ground.
  7. Once timer goes off, then, use one hand to lift your head and use the other hand to pull out the Denneroll from under your neck. Lie there for a minute or so and then roll onto your side to get up.
