When you've been living with chronic upper or lower back and spinal pain, there are numerous pathways you can take toward beating your symptoms of discomfort. While it's important to speak with your primary care provider about the nature of and causes behind your physical ailment, doctors often recommend a course of prescription pain medications or sedatives to dull the sensation. In some cases, taking these tranquilizers and painkillers can result in a variety of health complications, most notably substance abuse and addiction. 

If you're hesitant to experiment with prescription drugs, you'll be happy to learn that there exist many alternative therapeutic products from Dr. Michael Ho that can help relieve the aches and pains in your upper or lower back without putting you at risk of negative health consequences. In particular, the decompression belt for back pain can be a valuable tool in your efforts to overcome chronic discomfort.

Here's some background information on how this incredible product can benefit your recovery.

Introduction to decompression back support

Whether you injured your back due to excessive heavy lifting, overextension or are living with a degenerative muscle and joint condition, chronic back pain is a persistent issue that requires ongoing attention.

Realizing a need for a holistic product to provide relief for patients' symptoms, back pain specialist Dr. Michael Ho developed the 2-in-1 Decompression Back Relief Belt, a unique belt designed to offer decompression back support for those in need in order to minimize pain in the lumbar spine.

Users can wear the device over a T-shirt and under other layers of clothing, whether they're at home, at work or on the go. As the belt inflates, it can offer clinical-grade traction and decompression therapy for patients, relieving immediate aches and pains in the intended area. This medically sound technique enables patients to go about their daily lives without relying on drugs to dull the pain or scheduling risky and expensive back surgery.

How the Decompression Belt works

Now that you know a little bit about the development of the Decompression Belt, it's time to talk about how to put it into daily usage. This thin and lightweight holistic product can easily be wrapped around the waist and furthermore, the versatile design of the decompression belt height allows the product to be used by individuals of varying sizes, weights and ages.

Once the belt has been secured firmly around the waist, attach the pump and begin inflating the device with air. As the belt expands vertically, it slowly stretches the lower back and spine through traction. This process gently relieves spinal compression, allowing the intervertebral discs to separate slightly and soothe tightness in nearby muscles and joints.

Dr. Ho recommends that users wear the decompression belt for about 30 minutes several times a day for ongoing traction and decompression therapy. The versatility and mobility of this product also allows individuals to use it in a variety of settings for different purposes.

For example, you can put on the Decompression Belt before heading out the front door for added back support and pain reduction, whether you're planning on playing a sport or just going to the office. When you're at home, you can use this device as a physiotherapy tool, especially as you're resting on the couch or going to bed at night.

Medical endorsement of a decompression belt for back pain

Not only is the Dr. Ho decompression belt able to relieve chronic pain symptoms in the neck, upper back and lower back, but it is a medically safe and effective treatment avenue.

In addition to being designed by medical doctor and back pain specialist Dr. Michael Ho, the Decompression Belt has been clinically endorsed by chiropractor Dr. Michel Rice of the Ontario Spinal Assessment Clinic in Toronto, who has been certified by the American Medical Association's Academy of Disability Evaluating Physicians and has an associate fellowship degree in sports medicine.

Rice notes that the spinal decompression belt is effective for treating chronic and acute lower back pain along with related conditions like sciatic nerve damage and spinal disc herniation, as well as providing back support for pain related to poor posture. Furthermore, Rice praises the Decompression Belt as a revolutionary holistic product that has broken new ground in providing vertical traction and axial therapy.

"I evaluated the efficacy of Dr. Ho's Decompression Belt with the execution of a full digital radiographic analysis of the patient's spine in motion in two formats: flexion-extension lumbar motion with the patient wearing Dr. Ho's Decompression Belt and another motion study with the belt," wrote Rice in a release on the HoPhysio Belt's effectiveness. "Results were objectively measured to show not only improved bony position (equating with stability and segmental re-enforcement) but the belt has proven to add dynamic stability during full motion in the flexion and extension ranges. The stabilizing effects of Dr. Ho's Decompression Belt can equate with immediate pain relief, improved lumbar function, strength and marked improvement of patient overall well-being due to improved lumbar stability."

      Hi Bev,
      DR-HO'S Decompression Belt can provide traction therapy to the lower back. When the spine is fused, the areas above and below the fusion can still benefit from the decompression therapy. Furthermore, the belt can assist in lifting the weight of your upper body off of the lower back, allowing low back muscles to rest and relax. If you have more specific medical questions regarding the use of DR-HO'S Belt, we always recommend that you consult your doctor, as they have the best knowledge and understanding of your back pain and condition.
      Kind regards,
