President's Message

Hello, I’m Larry Sheman President of Karris Consulting Corp., the developers of the GolfRoller.

I wouldn’t classify myself as someone who is clumsy but over time I have had a history of hurting myself while doing a variety of exercises. A few years ago I tweaked my back doing some pull-ups. You know, one of those moments when you feel something in your lower back and the only thing you can think is “that’s not good”. Over the next few days I had a bit of tension in my lower back but nothing too severe. The real trouble started a few weeks later when we left for a family golf vacation.

I think all golfers young and old know how much pressure the golf swing can put on the lower back. After a few days of golfing, my lower back really started to tense up. In fact, I spent the balance of our vacation barely able to move.

When we returned from that ‘vacation’ I spent months getting chiropractic care and massage therapy. I was told that my lower back was in spasm. These treatments provided some relief but the pain in my lower back persisted. I was fortunate to have my massage therapist suggest that I use a roller to work my back. I was skeptical at first but I was also willing to try anything.

I started very slowly working my spine and gently rolling my lower back for just a few minutes every day. I could feel myself making progress. After a week or so, I started to roll the oblique muscles down in the lower back. This was an uncomfortable process, putting enough pressure on my back to almost make my eyes water. However, persevering through those sessions was a huge turning point for me.   In a few weeks, I was pain free and significantly more mobile.

I’m not suggesting that the GolfRoller is a miracle cure for back pain sufferers. That said, rolling my back for just a few minutes every day has significantly improved my quality of life.

I hope it can do the same for you.
