Rarely do I rate products online but this product deserves to be rated. I was experiencing extreme pain in may back due to L3 - L5 and T11 degeneration. I went on Amazon to look for a certain Doctor's belt and found the HailiCare Decompression Back Belt that happened to be an "Amazon Choice" for a much lower price than the Dr. belt. I purchased it on a Friday and received it at my home on Sunday. Put it on and within 30 minutes I was feeling much better. I have used it for a week now, for about 3 hours a day and my back pain is essentially gone! You don't have to wear it all the time, about 30 - 60 minutes twice a day works for me, but I wear it anytime I am doing any lifting or physical work. The only down side I can report is that, while wearing it, you cannot bend as easily to pick up things, but that is a no-brainer trade-off for the relief it provides. If you are suffering from pain like I was, this belt is sure to provide the relief you're looking for. TC, Vancouver, Washington
This belt is the best thing ever- I have been in MAJOR PAIN for the last 4 weeks and the only thing that stopped some of the pain and made life bearable was this belt- if you have spinal disc problems for God sake spend the money on this belt- you will be thanking me for a long time
Recently I had an extreme lower back pain, and my doctor told me that might be caused by a lumbar dislocation. He recommended me to avoid any movement with my waist, which is a little hard for me. However, this lumbar support indeed fixed my waist position even during sleeping, so I give this one 5 stars!
I have just been through **** and back with persistent back pain day and night even on high strength pain relieve and and anti-inflamatory drugs. My problem is disc/nerve related and I was becoming desperate to relieve the pain somehow. A friend told me about traction devices that open up the gaps between vertebrae to take pressure off the nerves, but they were expensive so I did a search to find alternatives. This inflatable belt has been a wonder. When I feel pain building (especially when sitting) I put this belt on, inflate it and bingo the pain goes away and my lower back feels stable. You can't wear it all the time, but you can wear it for at least a couple of hours which works a treat when say you are sitting down to dinner or watching TV or driving a car. I highly recommend this product.
Very comfy piece of kit. I have osteoarthritis in my liver spine. This gives me the support I need when doing day to day activities and jobs around the home. To a certain extent it has enabled me to do things that I previously could not do LIKE GOLFING! can't go without it.
A good belt, the dad is satisfied with his function performs the traction of the back (stretch) is felt. Heating also works, thanks to the Velcro on a large waist 115 cm is suitable.
First, my minor dislike. I ordered this traction belt and paid extra to have it delivered the next day. It was delivered, but shipped in its original box, instead of in an Amazon box. There wasn't even a piece of tape to keep it closed and secure. Anybody could have opened it and removed the items. I am happy that nobody tampered with my order. I am very pleased with this belt. My lumbar #5 has given me trouble for almost 40 years. The first time I put it on, I wore it for about 3 hours, until it finally began to feel uncomfortable. I put it on today, and as I was pumping the belt with air, I felt a certain vertebrae pop INTO place where it should be! I highly recommend this traction belt. It lifted my upper vertebrae off of my lower herniated disc, which is exactly what I needed for all these years for relief from the pain. For the price of a trip to the Chiropractor, I can almost take care of the problem myself. Since I now have this belt, I am able to sit for long periods of time again. And being a truck driver, I don't need the pain in my back, because the other drivers around me are a big enough pain! I also have the electronic nerve stimulator which makes a great companion.
I got this for my husband who has a lot of back pain after ONE USE HE WAS OUT OF PAIN, REALLY I HAVE MY HUSBAND BACK HE IS SO HAPPY WITHOUT THE BACK PAIN I ALSO GOT HIM ONE FOR HIS NECK AS WELL he uses both products in the beginning about 3 to 4 times a week, now he only uses them every once and a while THIS PRODUCT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE OR SHOULD I SAY GET YOUR LIFE BACK, BEST BUY I EVERY MADE FOR MY HUSBAND, I DO THANK GOD AS WELL, OUR LIVES ARE BACK TO NORMAL now when Mark wears his tool belt all day long he may have to us the back stretcher as we call it the Doctor said that Marks hip bone is fused to his spin al so said he should have been much taller and more handsome if it had not grown that way but all jokes aside it works the same day you cant ask for any thing better
Man, this saved me both pain and money! I first found about this through the tv commercials by Dr. Ho and his decompression belt. I almost coughed up the $300 for that one, when I found out about this cheaper, but just as effective option. Does it work? Well, does seem to give me some relief, but I have just started using it. I find it to be really effective when I use it with TENS therapy first. I was skeptical more about if they would have my size since I am a bit stocky, but they did. This therapy new to me, but I am at the stage where I will try almost anything. You should try if you have a need as well.
