We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.

As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Why We Love This

The Back on Track T-Shirt provides soothing warmth that’s particularly helpful for shoulder and upper back discomfort with Back on Track’s specially designed fabric - Welltex, a blend of polyester with ceramic powder melted into the threads. Thermal l heat is a well-recognized method used for healing injured muscles, joints, and tendons. For injury prevention, you can wear this shirt prior to riding or working around the barn to loosen and warm up muscles. You can also wear it as a layer in the winter for additional warmth!

Due to the curvature of the lumbar region, the fabric does not come into close contact with your lower back unless you are seated or lying down. The recommended product for lower back pain is certainly the Back on Track Ceramic Back Brace.

Care Instructions:
Machine washable up to 86°F or 30°C. Use normal detergents that do not contain bleach or fabric softeners. Air dry only, do not tumble dry.

Instructions

Instructions for Use:
Please read carefully, both the usage and washing instructions, before using the product.

All Back on Track products should be implemented gradually. To start with, use the product for a maximum of four hours a day for the first 2-3 days. The body then has the opportunity to familiarize itself with the fabric’s effects.

The reason we recommend starting with a maximum of 4 hours use is that some people experience pain in the beginning. In horses and dogs, it manifests itself as a swelling. This is due to the increased blood circulation, which is actually a good indication that the ceramic fabric is taking effect. This initial pain or swelling can occur anywhere from a few to several hours of use. You should then cease using the product any more that day, and instead introducing it carefully and more gradually over the following days.

After the introductory period you should up the usage to a minimum of 8 hours per day, preferably more. After only an hour or so is often perceived a positive effect on tight muscles and stiff joints. More persistent problems may require several days, usually between 10-20, before the desired result is achieved.

After the introductory period of 2-3 days it is important to continue to use the product intensively at least 10, preferably 20 days, before assessing its impact. Since this ceramic fabric reflects more of the body’s heat radiation as you move, the effect is greatest if you wear the product when active. Back on Track also works when resting, even when you sleep.

Continue to use the product according to the routine you develop, or use it for two weeks and then take a break in the third week, this in order to avoid dependency. The sensitivity of this dependency varies from individual to individual. For maximum effect, the ceramic fabric should be in direct contact with the skin (if necessary, a thin cotton cloth inserted between).

Note: Caution is advised during simultaneous use with liniment or similar, since the effect is amplified. Use the product only as directed and consult a doctor if symptoms persist. Do not use during pregnancy.

Specific instructions for use on horses and dogs:

Keep in mind that the effect of Back and Track increases with movement when the body heat increases, so in addition to using pads and blankets in the stables, the horse can also be allowed to move around with the Back on Track products. Especially suitable in this context is Riding Boots, Leg Wraps, Saddle Pads, Exercise Sheets and Blanket/Sheets.

For long term problems, the horse may need to use Back on Track for an extended period. Use the product for two to three weeks and have a break one week, to see if the symptoms persist.

As a preventive measure, Back on Track can be used with regular breaks. Use Back on Track 1 day before and 2 days after exercise and then stop until the next workout. For warm-up, use 1-2 hours before and 2-4 hours after exercise.

For dogs, one often uses the standard Dog Blanket, which is rain repellent and breaths. However, it should be noted that for long-running problems, Back on Track should be used for several weeks, at least 8 hours per day, with regular breaks in order to achieve the desired results. This means that the dog can use the blanket day and night, indoor as well as outdoor, 24/7. If being used at night, it is probably more comfortable for the dog to wear the Mesh Blanket, which is more adaptable. Alternatively, the dog may be provided with a mattress with "memory foam" or a cover of Back on Track to the sleeping basket. The foam part molds to the body shape and relieves a sore back.

Washing:

Back on Track products can be machine washed up to 86°F or 30°C. Use normal detergents that do not contain bleach or fabric softeners. Air dry only, do NOT tumble dry.

Note: Do not use bleach or fabric softener, or tumble dry. The product should be ironed at a maximum temperature of 122 F The ceramic powder is fused in the fibres of polyester/polypropylene and does not separate when washed. The textile loses efficiency with time and extended use.

The textile is produced in China and consists of 100% polypropylene (PP) with ceramic powder or 50% polyester with ceramic powder and 50% cotton.

    Back on Track T-Shirt is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Just "meh" I have lots of BOT products and love them. I wanted to try this shirt, to see if it might help with my stiff shoulders. So far, I'm not impressed! This is the first time a BOT product has let me down. The shirt does not seem to have the same warming qualities as my other products. Also, the sizing is wonky, as other reviews have stated. I would send it back, but I removed the tags.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big help in the gym Seems to keep back arthritis pain at bay as I work out. Not nearly as sore when my session is finished. For me, very good value.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped shoulder pain Bought this shirt for my husband, who had been complaining of a sore shoulder for months. After wearing it for a few days, he definitely noticed the discomfort had lessened.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointment The shirt doesn't have the back on track logo saying on it. It's just a logo on it like Ariats. I like it but it's pretty bland to pay so much for just a black tee shirt. Also it didn't come with instructions of when to use it, like use it after working out, while I ride, when I'm sleeping?? I still don't understand it. I haven't felt any different either.
    Date published: 2015-10-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BOT T-shirt The T-shirt is a great product and really helps my back and shoulders. It does however run a little large. I wanted to wear it under another shirt, but it is a little too thick. Would love one in long sleeve for the winter.
