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. I highly recommend this product.
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. 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.
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 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! 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!
