Hi friends,I bought a LifeSpan TR1200-DT3 treadmill. I love it so much. It has changed my life. But sadly, I may have to return it (I'm still within the 2-month return policy period). First, the good…Continue

"Sorry I'm so late to the party... new here.  I like the "varying your activity" and the "stretching" and the "ergonomics setup". Some more ideas for you: Try new high quality walking shoes, invest in them as…"

"Both dh and I have lower back pain. First thing we did was get a GOOD mattress http://jonsguide.org/best-top-icomfort-mattress-reviews/ and box spring that helped alot. The dr told me to sleep on my side with a small pillow between my legs and it…"

"Forgot to thank you, Catfiend, for that very interesting response you posted. Marla, thank you so much for that link to that stretch. I just watched the video and tried it and I think it might help. Yes, I thought the speed might make a difference,…"

"Hi Jennifer: Actually, it *has* improved a bit in the last couple of weeks.  I think this is due to several things.  1. I started incorporating back and leg stretches before and during treadmill time.  I step off the treadmill every…"

"Oh, and I almost forgot to mention: I had a phone consultation with a pilates instructor about this lower back problem caused by the treadmill. She e-mailed me a link to an article called "Junk Food Walking" that claims that this type of…"

"Marla, Thanks for letting me know you have the same problem. I have not been able to use my treadmill for weeks because I'm waiting for my lower back pain, which was caused by this treadmill, to go away. I'm very disappointed in this…"

Jennifer Smith replied to James L. Dam's discussion Question about Lifespan TR1200-DT3
"Hi Jim, Sorry for the late reply. I have that treadmill. If you get off it for 20 seconds or less, it does not pause. So when I have to do something off the treadmill, such as walk across the room and adjust the level of the air conditioner, I run.…"

Marla Patterson replied to Jennifer Smith's discussion Lower back pain (please help!)
"I'm really glad to see these articles.  I just started deskwalking about three weeks ago, and I love it for all the reasons Jennifer stated.  But my lower back started really locking up. I did get the sense that it was because I was…"

catfiend replied to Jennifer Smith's discussion Lower back pain (please help!)
"Jennifer, I remember seeing suggestions on the ergonomics of standing desks when I was setting my treadmill up that said the monitor should be somewhat *below* eye level to lessen stress on the back and neck. Given that you experience the same pain…"

Steve W. replied to Jennifer Smith's discussion Lower back pain (please help!)
"Sounds like you have a good ergonomic setup. I would try the split keyboard if you think that might help. Hope you canfigure it out. To me it is a lot more natural to have my hands shouldwer width apart when typing vs. together as is the case with…"

Jennifer Smith replied to Jennifer Smith's discussion Lower back pain (please help!)
"Steve, I'm just using my laptop's screen, at eye-level, and using an external keyboard and external mouse below it (about a foot below the laptop). So I think the setup is quite good, ergonomically speaking."

Steve W. replied to Jennifer Smith's discussion Lower back pain (please help!)
"One other question I might have is that are you using a regular keyboard and monitor vs. typing on a laptop?  Though the typing on a laptop might be easiest to set up, I am sure it isn't  that ergonomic. "
