How DR-HO'S Triple Action Back Belt Outperforms Other Back Support Belts
March 18, 2021


From chronic disc, nerve and muscle issues to work- and activity-related pain, lower back pain has many causes, symptoms and side effects. It can leave us unable to move due to pain, tensed up and aching, hunched over and more.

The mental and physical toll of lower back pain is significant and widespread. As a result, finding ways to relieve and manage the pain is important. But where to turn? Outside of drugs, medications and invasive treatments, which are options that should only be seriously considered after careful consideration and medical advice, how can lower back pain sufferers find temporary relief on a day-to-day basis?

Back Support Belts and Braces for Temporary Pain Relief

For many lower back pain sufferers, turning to back support belts, braces and massagers can be an effective way to get more back support and relieve symptomatic pain. Here are some popular options:



A Back Brace

A popular support belt for back pain sufferers is a back brace; back braces can provide structural support in the upper or lower back, depending on where it’s most needed while you go about your day. Lower back pain sufferers in particular can benefit from the lumbar support that lower back braces offer.

Back pain sufferers have a wide selection of back braces to choose from, with some models offering mobility restriction if movement worsens your pain. These devices encourage proper posture alignment in a variety of ways with different strap configurations and levels of rigidity. Back braces apply varying degrees of pressure to the back so that the spine can align more ergonomically, taking some of the excess weight off of spinal discs and thus relieving the associated pain.



A Back Traction Device

Back traction and decompression therapy works to widen the space between each vertebrae in the back, making it especially popular among back pain sufferers with pain originating from the spine. This can potentially help back pain sufferers correct spinal issues, reduce stiffness and find some much-needed relief.

Two common options for back traction and decompression include inversion tables which promote back traction through anti-gravity, and curved, manual spine stretchers that lay flat on the ground. As with back braces, back pain sufferers can choose between the different product types to ensure comfort, especially considering the risks associated with inversion tables such as hypertension or collapse from misuse.



A Back Massager

Back massaging devices come in various configurations and at a wide range of price points, but they all use similar technology to provide soothing, massage-like relief. Whether the device be handheld, situated on the back of a chair or worn like a brace, these electric devices often feature kneading, rubbing and chopping sensations that can feel both soothing and relaxing. 



DR-HO’S Triple Action Back Belt: Back Support, TENS Pain Relief & Soothing Massage-Like Stimulation

While all of the devices listed above come with their own benefits, what if there was a device that could combine many of those benefits into one pain therapy device? DR-HO’S Triple Action Back Belt (TABB) delivers support, effective temporary relief and massage-like stimulation.

Having a reliable way to find support and temporarily relieve pain that you can count on is what really counts. The TABB uses three different kinds of pain-relieving methods that outperform other back support belts and devices: 

  1. TENS and EMS with DR-HO’S proprietary AMP technology
  2. The Lumbar Support Cushion & The Dual-Core Support Band
  3. DR-HO’S Pain Therapy System for Full-Body Relief

1. TENS and EMS with DR-HO’S Proprietary AMP Technology

The Triple Action Back Belt utilizes three distinct types of technology to provide effective symptomatic relief and help manage chronic, intractable pain. Here’s how these technologies work:

TENS Therapy: TENS uses safe, low-level pulses of electricity conducted through the device or adhesive body pads to stimulate the nervous system and “block” pain signals from registering in the brain. Additionally, TENS therapy helps the body release endorphins, a naturally-occurring chemical that is thought to help the body alleviate pain.

EMS Therapy: EMS (electrical muscle stimulation) is a form of electrical therapy that’s used to stimulate muscles. EMS stimulation causes muscles to contract and relax to increase local circulation and soothe soreness. Stimulating healthy muscles also helps improve and facilitate muscle performance.

AMP Technology: While most competing TENS machines block pain at first, they only offer a single, predictable mode of electrical stimulation. Eventually, the body learns to bypass this stimulation and continues to deliver pain signals to the brain. All of DR-HO’S TENS devices deliver AMP (Auto-Modulating Pulse) technology, which alters frequencies, wave durations, and waveforms at random. This means no matter how long you use a DR-HO’S TENS machine, you will find the temporary relief you need in the lower back.



2. The Lumbar Support Cushion & The Dual-Core Support Band 

The Triple Action Back Belt also provides customizable lumbar and core support through a lumbar cushion that is inflated to your comfort. This can be an especially meaningful feature for lower back pain sufferers. The support cushion helps realign the user’s posture into a more ergonomic position, taking the weight off of discs and joints in the spine and helping you practice better posture going forward.

The Triple Action Back Belt also works like a back brace to give you that extra support you may need to go about your day without the disruption of back pain. With a simple design that’s free of uncomfortable straps, suspenders or pulleys found in other back braces, the belt can be worn discreetly under clothing so you can confidently enjoy your favourite activities. 

3. A TENS Unit That's Adaptable for Use on Other Body Parts

Something that’s truly unique about the Triple Action Back Belt is its ability to be adapted for use on other painful parts of the body, such as the hips, legs, feet, upper back, neck and shoulders. The user can extend the benefits of DR-HO’S Pain Therapy System (TENS, EMS & AMP) with adhesive, conductive body pads that can be placed anywhere on the body. The gentle, stimulating currents are conducted via the pads to the desired area, helping you find pain relief wherever it's needed.
