{Test This} Dr. Ho’s Decompression Belt

2013 January 15

If you’ve been to a chiropractor, then you’ve probably sung the praises of these alternative healers more than once…but, they will cost you! Chiropractors can charge upwards of $100 per session.

That’s why chiropractor, Dr. Michael Ho, created his Decompression Belt (retail value: $159.96), originally intended as a way for his celebrity and athlete clients to relieve backaches when they were traveling and unable to make appointments. Dr. Ho eventually started receiving inquiries from non-patients who wanted to purchase a belt. Three years ago, Dr. Ho introduced it for sale on his website, an ecommerce site featuring pain relief and weight loss aids. Read this interview with Vincent Ho, son of Dr. Ho and president of DR-HO (Dr. Ho’s product line), then enter by leaving a comment, below, for a chance to test one!

Why might FOFs experience back pain as they age?
A lot of people have the misconception that they got back pain out of the blue. But the fact is, in the fifty years leading up to back pain there was bad posture, repetitive strain such as driving or sitting at a computer, overuse of their body–these things have caused their body to slowly break down. That day they feel pain–it’s just so to speak the straw that broke the camel’s back.

What led Dr. Ho to create his decompression belt?
A lot of people with back pain will go get treatment, feel a little better, but it never lasts. The pain comes back. They might see a specialist three times a week and thats a lot in terms of time and money. On the days they are not being treated, the body regresses, which is why a lot of people get frustrated. When my father would treat his patients, he would send them home with this belt or another device. This way on the days they didn’t have an appointment, they would treat themselves at home, and progress would constantly be made. Beyond his patients, people became interested in buying the devices knowing it would save them time and money. They’d be able to see their doctor less frequently.

So, could the belt be a substitute to going to a doctor or chiropractor?
It’s complimentary. It’s not replace them. The doctor or chiros that are confident in their practice and really want the best for their patients have no problem using or selling the products because at the end of the day it’s the best for the patient.

Why is the belt a good way to alleviate back pain? How does it work?
We want to treat the root cause of the pain–why you have the pain in the first place, not just the symptom. As we get older, the discs between the bones in our compress, sort of like how brake pads in a car, wear down. Bone on bone, which happens when the discs wear down, causes pressure. The decompression belt stretches the back to it’s normal length. You strap the belt on and pump it up. It gets taller, pulling the back up, stretching the muscles. This puts less pressure on the back.

How long do you need to use it before it alleviates pain? How frequently should you use it?
Within the first twenty minutes you will notice pain relief. For long term pain relief you’ll need to wear it for approximately three to four weeks. The key is to wear it every day. After wearing the product for four to six weeks you can go years without pain.

Are there are other products on the market like this for back pain?
There are so many products that can offer someone a quick fix at a much cheaper price but nothing is going to fix the problem long-term, like this.

Can you wear it with clothes?
Yes, absolutely.

What conditions can it treat?
Pinched nerves or degenerative discs, herniated disc, bulging discs and sciatic pain.

What can’t it treat?
It doesn’t help as much for scoliosis, a condition where the back is in an S shape. If the back is not straight, it’s more difficult to stretch. The belt would give someone with scoliosis more support and comfort but not necessarily fix it, because scoliosis is incurable.

Where are they sold?
Doctors offices nationwide and online at the DR-HO website.

Does medicare cover it?
Yes!

    Oh I have suffered with chronic back pain for more than 5 years now. I have mild disc herniation, mild spinal stenosis and scoliosis. I feel better with stretching and movement. I would dearly love to try this, the thought of possibly being without pain is inconceivable to me.

    Thanks
    Jessie

  • Fumiko S. says:

    I was in a car accident in 2003 and although not injured badly, I have a bulging disk that has been painful for years. I also have four sons and having back pain stops me from being physically active with them and enjoying our time to hang out and have fun. I would love to try this product to see if I can get relief…….my kids would be so grateful. I don’t want to miss out on any more time with them before they are grown.

  • Lisa says:

    I suffer from back pain caused, no doubt, by sitting hours at a desk, driving hours in a car, etc. I would LOVE to try this. If it works for me, I’d buy one for my husband who also suffers from back pain (and wears an over-the-counter back brace every day).

  • Debbie says:

    I have a whole class of nursery children who just NEED me to do the Hokey Pokey with them. Please help me , to help my back so I can get back to successfully doing my job .Can’t you just picture all those smiley face children as they are dancing with their big old teacher!!!!!!!!

  • Linda says:

    I’ve been suffering from back pain for more than two thirds of my life. Things became worse when I fell down a flight of stairs nearly 8 years ago. Several doctors cannot figure out what is causing the pain and have tried many treatments – including spinal injections, accupuncture, chiropractic, etc. My case was even heard by a panel of doctors at Stanford Medical Center. If I could resolve this issue, it would be heaven. Thanks.

  • susan s. says:

    I have suffered with back pain for 48 years. I have been told that I have herniated disks which cause pain in my lower back and legs. I would love to find a better solution to help alleviate this constant pain.

    How wonderful would it be if this could truly help those with heriated discs. I’d be delighted to try it!

  • C. Dowling says:

    Nothing to lose but pain!

  • Shari W says:

  • Linda Siess says:

    This could be a life-changer – for my FOF DH (LOL) and me! Thanks for the opportunity to win. . . relief would be priceless!

  • vasslt says:

    My back needs this now! I have suffered with back pain for years.

  • Cheryl Lee says:

    I would love to have some long term relief for my back pain. Massages and the chiropractor help, however, the pain always seems to return. After years of trying solutions and pain meds it would be wonderful to find a natural way to relieve the pain and to have it work long term!

  • Manmohan Kaur says:

    My brother, who lives in India, is suffering from severe back pain for approx. 10 years. Recently his wife died in an accident and now he has to take care of his business [which needs lots of physical excursion] and his two children. Now with the change in weather his back pain came back and he is suffering badly.
    I think he needed it the most.

  • Joanna Baker says:

    OMG I need this!

  • Susie says:

    I like the idea of relieving back pain while I go about my day! I like the color too…nice and neutral!

  • disgusted says:

    I have such a back pain right now that I wish I had one..this sounds like a miracle..

  • Gaye says:

    I’ve suffered from back pain since I was around 14 and now also have arthritis in neck and lower back. I try to stay as active as possible to keep joints loose but I sit at a desk most of the day. I’d love to see if this would help ease the pain.

  • Sharon O'Donnell says:

    I need it right now!! We’ve recently moved, and I’m sitting here with back pain because I have yet to find a new chiropractor. I have degenerative disc disease and am hopeful that the decompression belt will bring me some comfort.

  • Gwen says:

    Would love to try this. It sounds like a fabulous tool – especially for someone who sits at a computer all day! Have had chronic back pain for 20 years.

  • Robin says:

    “Pinched nerves or degenerative discs, herniated disc, bulging discs and sciatic pain”…that’s me! I would love to try this!

  • joyce says:

    Maybe this would help my lower back pain.

  • Michelle Butler says:

    I would absolutely love to test this product. I have chronic back pain due to metastatic breast cancer that had spread to my bones. I’m in remission but still have bone/pain issues. This might just be a God send to me. Plus if it works for me it would be a great way to advertise the product. I also worked as a nurse for many years and that is hard on the back as well.

  • Diane says:

    Of all the items you have ever offered for us to test, this is the number one I would like. I have severe degenerative disc disease……………have had for about ten years. I started with a chiropractor, 55 times….did not help. Then I tried medication after a painful test where needles were inserted all over me and electricity turned on. I forget the name of it. I was put on a very harsh medication. Seemed like it helped at first but it’s usefulness soon diminished. Then I had 6 epidurals, then 3 facet injections. I have been on all sorts of prescription pain medications and am still on one. My back makes my life miserable. I would have surgery in a minute if it would help. A friend has had 5 surgeries and none have worked.
    If I cannot test and the results of whomever gets to test are positive, I will buy it. I would love to try it…………..I would be a perfect tester. Thanks~

  • Billie Davison says:

    I am 55 years old and have scoliosis. The last 2 years I have had severe lower back pain. I have had steroid injections, PT, yoga and so far nothing is helping. I’m game to try anything that might help.

  • sandy haber says:

    oh wow. i’ve been struggling with lower back pain due to some scoliosis and bulging discs, and now sciatica, for too many years to count! if this would save a trip to the chiropractor or physical therapist, count me in!!

  • Christine says:

    wow, love to try this, have multiple back issues, thanks

  • tawnya says:

    I sit at a computer all day, and experience back pain. If this works, it will bring great relief to a sore back!

  • IntoTheMist says:

    My mother was hit by a car and we paid almost all the bills. She had tried a belt but not like this for the pain she is left with. It has been years now and getting old with no surgery for it. I do get back pain myself and would use it especially, because I need to keep on the computer to get income and do some creative work otherwise. But, I would like her to try this and hope it would help. They said her options were acupuncture or the shot like for childbirth.

  • Justina Wilson says:

    I love my Chiropractor very much. I have been
    going for 29 years and tell him after every visit
    I want him to come home with me. I know not realistic
    but this would be the next best thing. Looking
    forward to using this for my back and to also share it
    in my family.

  • Heather Cooney says:

    Oh my aching back. My husband did spinal decompression for his bulging disks. Fixed him right up. I’ve been jealous ever since. I would love to try this!

  • Joyce A says:

    I recently had an MRI indicating a herniated disc and allunear tear.. PT was not recomended due to the constant pain .. and Dr. felt it would not be beneficial for me at the moment. Dr. suggested I meet with an anesthesiologist to have a spinal injection .. I would love to test this!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • LizM says:

    Winning this would be a dream come true. I have seen Dr. Ho’s commercials and wanted to try this but with a limited income it is not in the budget. Thank you for this opportunity.

  • kathy kukla says:

    I really want to test this belt. My back is really bad. I’ve been seeing Drs. for it for 20 yrs. I still have chronic pain. I think this could really help me. Please?

  • Elizabeth Barnette says:

    I am a Pilates instructor and many of my clients have low back pain. Strengthening and lengthening the core muscles often alleviates back pain so I understand how this belt could work. I would love to try test this myself and also let my clients try it.

  • Phyllis Mannerino says:

    As a nurse I am on my feet all day long.This would be a great help!

  • DawnMarie Helin says:

    After surgery at 26, I’ve been managing my back pain in many, many ways to avoid additional surgery. This device appears to address, in a non-pharmaceutical way, the wear and tear that our aging frame takes. I’d love to give it a try.

  • Barbara says:

    Please, anything that will save me from another back surgery. Already had a PLIF on L5 S1 and 4 screws, persistent grade 1 spondylolisthesis on L4 L5 on S1 with multifactorial moderate stenosis , moderate facet arthritis, L1,2,3,4 facet arthopathy. . Rotatory levoscoliosis of lumber spine along with slippage on maximal flexion back and also stenosis above. Want MRI reports? If the dr has anything for the neck to be tested?…..think the back is bad, the cervical spine is even worse!Scheduled for more epidurals and who knows what will be>>a belt instead of surgery, now that is a no brainer.

  • Lisa Brock says:

    I have severely compressed vertebrae in my lower spine and only get relief with spinal shots. I would love to know if this compression belt could provide relief. If it works I’d be happy to spread to word far and wide!

  • Janet Keyser says:

    I need to try this. just not living like I use to. Help

  • Rita C says:

    Will this product help with arthritis?

  • mandrada says:

    I had polio as a child, and gaining weight has even progressed my back, neck and body aches, since then they labeled my condition as “progressive degenerative disease”. I could definite use one, since my insurance does not cover chiropractors and physical therapy is covered at a minimum. Thanks.

  • FabGirl says:

    I hav suffered with degenerative disc disease since I was 21-33 years now, and the pain culmulatively worsens with each year as I grow older. I would love to try the Decompression Belt. I like the fact that it naturally relieves pain, and can be a long term solution. It would be such a joy to not feel 20 years older than my actual age, and not feel pain every minute of the day. This sounds like it would be perfect for me, and I would be so grateful to be chosen to test it and report on my results. Please consider me, and thank you for offering the opportunity.

  • Rita C says:

    Will this product help with arthritis? I would love to try it!

    Mary Catherine

  • Greyfilly says:

    Oh yes,thank you for a chance to try this wonderful sounding device!I have a Dr. appointment today for back pain,which was diagnosed as that friend to many NOT,arthritis.If one wants to live on anti-inflammatory meds as well as muscle relaxers and hardly be able to stand for more than a few minutes @ a time,then this is the condition for you!Seriously though,I am seeking help that is not harmful, and to top it I have a little grandson one year old,that I have been asked to help out with very soon!Is it bad form to mention that I have been a stay at home for a number of years because of a plethora of health issues,and my husband has been on L & I for months now because of a whiplash injury that has gone from bad to worse even with treatment.Surgery is raising it’s ugly head as the only option for “fixing” it.Sooo….sure could use this chance to try Dr. Ho’s Decompression Belt!

    I have a degenerative disc in my lower back and trying everything to avoid the knife. I swim and do physical therapy as well as massage. All my efforts have given me perhaps 50% relief. I used to enjoy going to museums and walking around NYC with friends. Now I have to decline. I would love to try this to see if it could make the last difference.

  • Candace McMahon says:

    This sounds wonderful. I have been using chiropractic for years and believe it is the first thing one should do after a fall or for pain. I like that this sounds like it helps for lasting pain relief. I really hope to try it!

  • Robin Stanfield says:

    I have had back problems off and on since I was a teenager. I would love to try this and see what great results I could get.

  • belindabg says:

    With a herniated disc in L5-S1 and chronic BRUTAL sciatica, I NEED THIS, so PLEASE CHOOSE ME to test it!

  • Kaye says:

    I really, really, really want this for my poor dear hubby who suffers with back-hurting so often.

    I have degenerative disc disease and am in constant pain. To be able to use this product would probably work amazingly well. Any time the pain is not there would be incredible. I hope I get to test this product… thanks so much

  • Dale says:

    Because my job requires long periods of sitting I frequently have lower back pain. I would love to test Dr. Ho’s decompression belt – although my current physician may be upset that I’d no longer have to visit his office. Physical therapy and movement (tai chi & yoga) help the most- however I feel the need to properly support my back while working. Please choose me! I’d love to give a review of this new therapy.

  • smfsprout says:

    I think 4-6 weeks of the belt is more than a fair trade for years free of pain. I’m ready to strap it on and pump it up.

  • Connie Williamson says:

    I *really* need this. My back was described as “terrible” at my last doctor visit. It hurts in my lower back area and the pain goes down my right leg. Oh please, please, please! Pick me to test it!

  • Marne Rogers says:

    I need this! I’m an RN and end every shift with S-I joint pain. If this works, I will sing your parises from the rooftop!

  • Sara Kennedy says:

    I have just been diagnosed with a herniated disc. I have acute pain in back, leg and foot. I am asking for a back brace. Nobody seems to think it is necessary…except me!

    I would like to test this brace, and am a great candidate for it!

  • Sharolette Morgan says:

    I go to the chiropractor every 3-4 weeks. Also, get massages. Hope this could help with the pain from old injuries.

  • Rosita Eizenshtein says:

    I have been suffering from lower back pain forever and the fact that I sit long hours in front of a computer, doesnt help one bit…I would love to win this! thx

  • Mary Catherine says:

    I would absolutely love to try Dr Ho’s belt…I have had back pain for 20 years and can hardly remember what it is like not to hurt. I would really like to be able to enjoy grandchildren soon and to be able to enjoy traveling with my husband of 34 years. We have looked forward to these things for so long and I am so limited…I think this belt would make such a positive difference! Please allow me this chance to try something natural to alleviate pain that won’t leave me drowsy like pain meds. Thank you for bringing products like this to help us…I would love to be one of the lucky FOFs to test this belt. Hopefully yours, Mary Catherine

  • sharon says:

    I would like to try anything that would help with my L-5 S-1 herniated disk pain.

  • Annetta Smith says:

    This would be a slice of Heaven to me – constant lower back pain for years has limited my enjoyment of lots of activities requiring extensive walking – hiking, touring art exhibits and outdoor festivals, exploring new parts of the world while travelling … I would LOVE to try out Dr. Ho’s compression belt and see if it will free me to enjoy life more!

  • Jane says:

    Please, YES!

  • carol hollenbeck says:

  • Deb M says:

    Carrying and delivering (naturally not via c-section) a 10 pound 1 oz baby definitely takes its toll on your back! I’d love to try this.

  • allies says:

    I would love to try this! I was involved in a car accident many years a go & the damage has gotten worse over the years – especially when I work in an office – sit at a desk 9 hours a day! I think this would be very helpful for my pain relief, which is greatly needed! :O)

  • Diane Welker says:

    I would love to win this for my daughter. She was only 19 when she woke up paralyzed from the waist down, while away at college. She had to have emergency back surgery. She is doing much better now, but she still has bouts of pain. She also has a scare that runs from the nape of her neck to the end of her tail bone. She doesn’t believe in taking/living on pain medications so this may be just the right medicine for her.

    Thank you,
    A Concerned Mother

  • Christa L. says:

    I would love to test this! I always get back pain!

  • Gaye Weinman says:

    I have suffered with back pain for 40 yeas (I’m 66). Had a disc operation eight years ago. It helped, but did not totally alleviate the pain. Eight years later it is really bothering me again. I don’t want to go through another operation. Dr. Ho’s Decompression Belt sounds promising for this debilitating condition. I would be your you biggest fan if I win it!

  • Lisa says:

    Having been a back pain sufferer for years, I would love to test this!

  • Michelle H says:

    I try not to put anything on lower shelves because I can’t take the pain bending over. I would love to try this.

  • mprimo1 says:

    Twenty years ago my chiropractor gave me a brace to wear that was made of elastic with velcro closures, had a hard large piece of styroform and stays in the back so that I couldn’t move the wrong way. Now, I have DDD and a slightly pinched nerve so, I still use this brace, though it’s kind of frayed and the elastic is sort of stretched. Dr. Ho’s Decompression Belt would be the up-to-date, modern replacement.

  • ciaobella70 says:

    Oh, I need this sooooo badly! With my severe back problems, this belt would be a God-send…now I just hang from doors.

  • Carole Mellin says:

    love to try it.

  • Vanessa says:

    What a God-send this would be!

  • Lisa Dunmore says:

    This sounds perfect for me as I have a bulging disc L4-5 so my lower back is painful a lot, with pain radiating down my hip and leg. I’ve tried many things but nothing like this! Plus Medicare covers it so if I like it, I could get one as I have Medicare (disability). Thank you for offering this opportunity!

  • Rob Champion says:

    I do construction work, and my lower back is always killing me. Hope this works!!

  • pepper3 says:

    I am a Sales Representative & carry a heavy bag all day. My back has really started hurting in the last few years. I would love to see if this belt would make a difference!

  • Doris says:

    I have constant lower back pain and would love to try Dr. Ho’s decompression belt and stop taking the pain relievers I have been taking for years. I would love to win this. Thank you.

  • Elaine says:

    I have been to non-surgical orthos, chiropractors, physical therapists, etc., and I still have back pain. I would LOVE to try this. If it works, I will be happy to sing its praises to EVERY person in the world. Please pick me.

  • LindyBelle says:

    I noticed some people have problems with their cervical spine; however, I do not think this would work on that. I do have a bulging disk in my neck, but I also have scoliosis and a malformed fifth lumbar vertebra, which I think would benefit from this form of gentle stretching. Please consider me to be a tester of Dr. Ho’s decompression belt.

  • Sandy Bonesteel says:

    What a great idea for back pain! Having had back pain for quite some time (scoliosis and a bad disk), it would be amazing to be chosen to test this. It would be really nice to be able to stop taking over the counter pain medications (which don’t help a whole lot), or try to find a topical pain cream that actually works.

  • Belinda says:

    I would love to give this to my Mom to test. She is so in need of relief.

  • rosevincentia says:

    I would so appreciate the relief from chronic pain the belt may offer. With mutliple herniated discs, spinal stenosis and arthritis in my back, I’d welcome pain-free days.
    Does the belt come in plus sizes??

  • Linda Ivey says:

    I want to be a tester! I have severe back pain.

  • Miami163 says:

    I live for many years with this type of pain. I know all about that: sleepless nights, numerous of doctors helpless… I would love to try it!!!

  • Gail says:

    I have a ruptured disk at L-4 and would love to try this.

  • patmal says:

    PLEASE let me try this. I caught just a a glimpse of this and focused on the ‘lifetime” part. This would be so fabulous if it works

  • s_lynze_s says:

    I would love to try this product out. I have scoliosis and big breasts so my back is always hurting.

  • JoAnne D. says:

    This is EXACTLY what I’ve been looking for! A non-prescription way to alleviate the chronic back pain I have had for many years. Such an improvement over the typical tresatments!

  • vm_stars says:

    Sounds like a winner to me – and better than actual traction!
    I would love to try this product.

  • char.moser says:

    I am 64 years old and still working at my computer and needless to say I suffer from lower back pain. I do go to my Chiropractor when I can’t stand it any longer and he does help me. I would love to test your product. Thank you. Char Moser

  • DELIA SADLER says:

    I’ve been “out of kilter” since I was paralyzed in a car accident 40 years ago. I overcame the paralysis, but have residual effects. Have had to do PT, muscle massage, stretching etc. ever since. The pain always settles in my lower back. What a relief it would be not to HAVE to be so vigilant on a daily basis. Yes, I would love to try this out.

  • d.wales says:

    I’ve sprained my back 3 times in the past, and I regularly see a chiropractor in order to avoid a forth incident. I’d love to try this product!

  • carolineno says:

    I have just spent all morning looking online for something to help my back. I have tried pills and sprays but I want to do more than that. I can’t believe this was listed! If this helps me I will more than happy to tell the world!

  • Terry says:

    I purchased a Dr. Ho small electrical stimulation unit for aching muscles quite a few years ago and still use it. If this decompression belt works as well, it is sure to be a winner. With my back pain, mostly due to spinal stenosis, I would love the opportunity to try the belt.

  • Sandee Ferranti says:

    Oh happy day!….I would love to try this…sounds like it might really work to ease my back pain.

  • Eoan Russell says:

    I have suffered with back pains for over 28 years. I would love to try this belt to see if it really works.

  • Nancy McMullen says:

    This would be a gift from God for me…I have been suffering with back problems for many years now, have had many steroid shots, many alternative and medical treatments…so something such as this decompression belt sounds *amazing*. I love the concept of how this belt works, and would dearly love to test this out and hopefully get some relief. Thank you!

  • ellen schull says:

    I would love to try this. I go to chiropractor a lot for lower back pain. I would like to see how this works.

  • DIANE KORBER says:

    23 years ago I had spinal fusion. My recent MRI showed severe discogenic disease, multi level degerative spondylosis,facet disease and spondylolisthesis. Bottom line “progression of the disease”. MD states I need 4 level fusion with rods. I am 68 years old, have recently had to leave my job due to excruciating back pain. I can literally hear and feel the vertebrae rubbing bone on bone. I will do and try anything to not have surgery. I am also a cancer survivor and do not want any further surgery. I would love to try Dr. Ho’s decompression belt so that I can be more mobile and in less pain. Thank you for your consideration .

  • Suzy Zawadzke says:

    I would love to try this to alleviate my chronic back pain, instead of always having to rely on prescription painkillers!

  • holly holst says:

    I would like to try this belt. The concept is good.

  • Ellen says:

    Will give a detailed review if allowed to try this!

  • Candace says:

    I just turned 51 and have the accompanying aches and pains. Because of an accident a few years ago where I fractured my ankle, my walking is imperfect and often causes backaches. This would be a wonderful opportunity to try an option other than NSAIDS. thanks so much!

  • Bjm says:

    I really need to try this. I have degenerated disc disease and herniated discs in my lower back. I take more pain pills than I want but the pain is horrible and it lasts 24/7. I wear a regular back brace sometimes but it really doesn’t help much. I go to a neurosurgeon for it and I have been told it is inoperable. I also have injections several times a year

  • Brenda says:

    I would love to try this. I have a lot of back pain.

  • Elisse says:

    I have scoliosis and would love to try it, but I really want this for my US Army Ret. husband to try SO badly! He has arthritis exacerbated by a fracture sustained in the military & a degenerating disc. He cannot take pain meds & Nothing gets him out of pain except accupuncture, but the nearest accupuncturist is 4 hours from us! If this works for him it would be SO wonderful!

  • kathi fincham says:

    Really and truly? Something that might make my pain go away? I was diagnosed 20 years ago with degenerative disc disease. The surgery was wonderful and stopped my pain, but they couldn’t do all the surgery that needed to be done. So about five years ago, the pain started coming back. I live on a daily basis with this pain, and it gets worse as the day goes on after standing too much, or sitting at my computer too much. Till now, because I can’t afford a chiropractor on a regular basis, and my insurance doesn’t cover it unless you have jumped through ten thousand hoops first, my answer has been Vicodin. It works, but I don’t like the idea of taking this every day. This could be the answer to my prayers, and if it worked, I would find a way to pay for it! Just give me a chance. I’m going to be 60 this weekend – I hopefully have a lot of years left. I would love to spend them pain free!!!!

  • DOTTI says:

    If this could relieve my back pain it would be like a miracle to me.

  • Heather Cariou says:

    I was a dancer for years when I was young, and have some lingering problems as a result – unstable pelvis, herniated L4, sciatica, and was born with natural lordosis and scoliosis which has worsened over the years. I spend a fortune on acupuncture, chiropractors, massage et al. This could be alife saver for me!

  • Rebecca says:

    I have had chronic low back pain for over ten years! Would love to test this product.

  • amber says:

    sign me up to try this. Good luck

  • Ruth says:

    I would love to try this. I just had steroid injections in my neck and back yesterday for bulging discs.

  • Rinda Freeman says:

    I could use this after long hours sitting at the computer

  • Jewel Hopson says:

    I once told my older brother, “I wouldn’t mind growing old, except for one thing.” He laughed and finished my thought by saying, “The pain.” It’s difficult to accept that every day for the rest of my life, I’m going to deal with back pain. I would like to prove him AND my PCP wrong. This is a wonderful opportunity. Thank you.

  • J. says:

    As a back sufferer for the past 20 years anything that
    might aid in the pain is a “want, need and use” product!!

  • Julie says:

    I would love to feel the benefits of this exciting sounding idea!

  • Doreen Olson says:

    I’ve been having back pain for years, even though I go to a chiropractor regularly and a physical therapist from time to time. My chiropractor said she could probably justify seeing me on a daily basis. To be able to treat myself at home sounds like a dream come true!

  • Jennifer says:

    After 12 years of maintaining a residential housecleaning service my back was trashed. I have permanent degeneration in L4 & L5. I got out of the business and have been pretty much symptom-free for the past 10 yrs, however in just the past 3 weeks the pain and stiffness is back with a vengence. I would be very grateful to give this a try. I work at a golf course, and this is impinging on my ability to work as well as golf.Thank you!!

  • Julie L says:

    I would love to test this! I’ve been having horrible back pain for a few years now but cannot afford to continue expensive treatments for it.

  • Beth Lowe says:

    After many years of working on my feet at a fast paced job and lots of horseback riding I often have a sore lower back. I would love to try this belt to get some relief!

  • Terri Bond says:

    I an a server. I work 40 hours a week.I work 3 10 hour gays a week straight thru. I am 57 years old. I am in horrible pain from my back 24-7. I would be so extremely grateful for the opportunity to see if this would ease even a little of my pain. PLEASE…..

  • Maureen Tablan says:

    I look forward to the opportunity to try Dr. Ho’s Decompression Belt as an alternative to DAILY PAIN ….
    MAJOR INVASIVE SURGERY … STEROID INJECTIONS ….. NUMEROUS Conventional & Alternative Treatments etc…etc….. ALL of which I have endured…. post accident from more than 3 years ago. Although I have continued to work throughtout this saga, some extra RELIEF would be a real blessing in my life !

  • mary mouradian says:

    sweet

  • carol says:

    I would love my daughter try this, she is 54 yrs of age, working as an ICU nurse and with her 12 hour shifts on her feet has back problems. She has tried many things, but this seems like it could help her.

  • AlvaFay@msn.com says:

    Oh, please, I need this. I have degenerative disc and scoliosis. A few years ago I had an RFO, but now the pain is back. I do not have the time, money, or sanity to continue on like this. This belt could be a life saver. Thank you!

  • elizabeth says:

    I was diagnosed with spondylitis 20 yrs ago. I don’t even remember what it is like not having lower back pain. In the last few years, my back has been going out quite frequently too. I would do anything short of surgery if it would help my lower back.

  • Dianna says:

    Oh my goodness! This sounds like just what I need. I have an inversion table that has helped some..can’t get around and live on that. This sounds wonderful. My herniated discs and I would love to try this. :)

  • Debra Simning-Chapman says:

    I would love to try this and give my opinion to all the FOF’s. I am overwieght ad have lower/middle back problems. This would be great for that! Thank You!

  • Sherri Amerman says:

    After years of lower back pain, this sounds like a wonderful solution. My disks are in pretty good shape, but they’re as old as the rest of me. Sometimes my pelvis becomes twisted and my legs differ in length by as much as 1/2 inch. Just from the description, my back is saying, “Oh, yeah!” I’d love to test it!

  • Michelle says:

    Wow. Would love to try this product. I have had pain from many issues for over 16 years. If I could have just a few hours a day relief, I might actually start living again. My beloved niece is getting married soon and I would love to be able to participate in all the festivities. I have been waiting for 27 years to see her special day and I don’t want to be in bed suffering from back pain. Thank you.

  • km_maggard says:

    I would love to give this a try. I have low/mid back pain and the dr cannot find anything wrong after xrays and ct scan… Would like to see if it offers relief!

  • JAN says:

    Injured my back while working in an OR a year ago and have been seeing a chiropractor ever since. Have had some relief, but still having lower back pain. As a nurse, I notice the pain is draining and distracting – would love to try this to see if it would make a difference.

  • Paula says:

    I’ve ALWAYS have lower back pain — gone thru 3 chiropractors but the pain is still there. I would LOVE to try this.

  • Soledad says:

    I really, really need this. After seeing my doctor yesterday about my back pain, she thinks it might be a pinched nerve. It has been bothering me for months. I cannot stand or walk for more than 15 minutes because of the pain. I am unemployed so cannot afford to go to a massage therapist like I used to.

  • Sue Franco says:

    I have had chronic back and hip pain for years and would love to try anything that might help

  • Judy Yacker says:

    I work with preschoolers and am constantly crouching down, bending over and sitting on those tiny chairs. all this on top of normal aging stuff. My back is a mess! I’d love to try this (or anything that might help relieve the pain!).

  • Carmen says:

    I’ve had a pinched nerve in my lower back for many years that sends pain shooting down my leg and into my foot. I’m open to trying anything that might help!

  • Pam says:

    What a great opportunity to try Dr. Ho’s decompression belt. I had been diagnosed with degenerative disk about 5 years ago. Have tried physical therapy 3 different times now. While that works for a while, the pain always returns. I sit at a computer at work, so I know that is part of the cause. I try to be aware of my posture and do stretches several times a day. I would love to try the decompression belt to get some “real” relief with my back.

  • Linda says:

    This sounds like it really might work! Having exdperienced one sciatic episode, I would be most diligent in wearing the belt daily in order to prvent future pain.

  • Margarida says:

    Dr. Ho’s Decompression Belt sounds like an inexpensive effortless way to relieve back pain.

  • kweiyin says:

    Growing up in Taiwan, calcuim (milk) was not readily available and very costy. I constantly have lower back pain after doing light housework or gardening. I would love to try out this product and see if it can solve some of my cronic lower back pain.

  • Michelle M says:

    I need it so bad!!!

  • susan says:

    i have seen this on tv, and it looks interesting, but i would like to test it before i purchase it. i have degenerative arthritis of the spine and sciatica and i think it might help when i am at work and on my feet for 12 hours at a time!

  • jeanie1032 says:

    would be SO welcomed & I am doing PT right now for back & neck

  • Margee says:

    Would love to try. I’m on my feet all day everyday, and at the end of the day my back is barking!

  • dorothy borgese says:

  • Kay Duffield says:

    I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to try this out to see if it relieves back pain.

  • Susan robinson says:

    I am a fairly new reader and seeing this might have made the benefits of readership skyrocket for me. I was diagnosed last year with spinal stenosis and 2 bulging discs. These produce sciatic pain as well as other symptoms.
    I am 57 but this past year with these back issues has made me feel 77!!!
    I would love to try this product and would also be thrilled to win one!
    Thank you for the possibility of relief.

    Susan Robinson

  • Janis says:

    This would be a wonderful product if it works the way it is described. I have osteo/arthritis and have a lot of lower back pain, would love to find something to relieve the pain. I am not a fan of taking prescription meds but in this case I have to. If I could find an alternative I would shout it to the roof top to every one I know who has back pain.

  • Merri matalon says:

    Need this product! Give me some well earned relief from back pain!

  • Jody says:

    I’ve received all the steriod injections I can get in a year and just had radiofrequency ablation. Now it’s back yo the chiropractor because I didn’t get any relief. I’m sooooo tied of being in pain!

    I’ve received all the steriod injections I can get in a year and just had radiofrequency ablation. Now it’s back to the chiropractor because I didn’t get any relief. I’m sooooo tired of being in pain!

  • jenni104 says:

    OH my I would love to try this. I have a horrible time with back pain, and I am going in for my second surgery because of it in two more weeks. I have a back brace that is really just a girdle with metal stays in it and it helps but not as much as I would like, this is something that I would absolutely love to try. I also would like to show it to my doctors if it does what it says, if it was something they had available for patients now I would have it already. And I think it sounds like something the two of them should and would consider. My pain specialist and my ortho surgeon are the ones I wish had it in now. I hope that I am one of the lucky five, thank you for getting the word out about this either way.

  • Christine says:

    would love to try this

    Back pain has started in the past year – would LOVE this!

  • Sandy says:

    I have had many shots in my spine. Just finished P.T.
    Like you say the pain does come back. I do have scoliosis, so do you think this would help me, with my back problems?
    I don’t understand how the pain would go away for ever, if you wear this belt all the time? Willing to find out.
    Thanks.

  • Fran says:

    I have 3 back problems: herniated discs L 4 and L 5; Degenrative Disc Disease and arthritis of the spine. I weigh in at 121 pounds at 5′ 8″ so weight is not as issue. I have been in a back brace all the time I am veritcle since 1991- and it only gets worse. I have tried everyhting short of surgery ( which I was told would nto work on me)- even acupuncture and a ‘tens unit’- all with no relief at all.
    SIGN ME UP>>>PLEASE!!!!!!

    My constant back pain would love to test this.

  • mtm says:

    Hi, I hope you will consider me for testing this belt. I have chronic Fibromyalgia and debiliating pain for the past 20 years. I’ve lost my very good job and I think any day my husband will lose his because he has to dress me every morning and it means he is late. I find it so hard to do anything, even stand in the shower. Cooking is desperate cos I burn everything. I do have to sit or collapse and can’t get back up to catch things from burning. Our house is just €2 over the mark for having a doctors & medicine card. I would love to be able to do something and if this belt helped maybe I could have a new lease of life. I am so depressed the whole time. Its very hard. So if its possible, please consider my request. I am so desperate for help that I don’t even care who sees me begging here.

  • Mary says:

    The belt sounds wonderful. I would love to try it on my aching back.

  • Heather says:

    Sounds like help is on the way, a miracle of sorts that could relieve alot of pain. What a great concept and opportunity for relief.

  • Pammie says:

    I am so exhausted from the pain. My life is curtailed by the pain. After a long line of pain management failures, I am currently in PT and doing acupuncture and my life revolves around appointments. Can you make me the recipient of a new lifestyle please? I promise to be diligent about reporting back my findings!!!!!

  • Christine says:

    I have been suffering from back pain now gong on seven years from a MVA. I have tried injections with no relief, and am not a canidate for surgey as I have a harrington rod in place. I would love to give this belt a try.

  • Gisele says:

    Okay, I don’t usually chime in but this one would be great for my husband to test, is that allowed? He is 58 years old and does carpentry. He has had back pain for a long time and has been going to a Chiropractor for many years. Inversion and a home stim unit keeps him going. It would be wonderful if this could help.

    Pick him please :-)

  • Kimberly Irby says:

    I would love to try this. I am 53, and suffer from extreme back pain due to a congenital spinal abnormality. There is nothing that can be done for me surgically, so things like Dr. Ho’s decompression belt are the only hope I have for quality of life.

    Thanks so much for reading my reply, hoping for some relief.
    Melinda

  • Kathy says:

    Decompression works on my back pain. But the only way I can achieve that now is by lying on an incline board. That works. With this decompression belt, I wouldn’t have to put up with all that blood rushing to my head!

  • arlene kohler says:

    I would love to try this…I have a herniated disc which went undiagnosed for years and finally caused never ending pain and weakness. I have now been in physical therapy for several months to correct the damage down to the connective tissues in my legs and back. I have had to leave my job at a personal care facility for seniors and feel like my golden years will be spent in agony.

  • Jennifer Taylor says:

    I cannot begin to tell you how much I need to try this belt. I have walked with a cane for over 8 years now because of a calcium problem. I know it will not heal me but would LOVE to find something that would allow me some relief when I stand up and walk. If this could make my back feel better I would be ever so grateful. Thank you so much.~ Jeni

  • Celeste Crago says:

    This looks and sounds amazing! I broke my neck and my back 40 years ago come this March 16. I get chiropractic adjustments twice a week. A device that would help with back pain would be a Godsend for me. I’d be the perfect subject to test this product!

  • johnkathoop@comcast.net says:

  • lisa mcfarland says:

    my back would love it if I tried this and it worked

  • Cari says:

    I’ve been battling degenerative spine disease for 15 years which is bad for someone only 56. I’ve had my neck fused and now it’s attacking my lower back. I’ve started Pilates to help strengthen my back muscles, but then I hurt. Would LOVE to try this to see if it helps slow the progression. The medical field keeps coming up with new and less invasive procedures all the time and the more I can put off surgery again the better it will be.

  • janis says:

    I would be a great person to test this. I am a bartender/server and by the end of the day my back is a wreck. Would be awesome to find something that would relieve the pain

  • Marthasan says:

    My spine is ready to try the Decompression Belt. A support for the center of my body would be a relief. Lifting is part of my every day job. I will give you the most honest feedback

    Thank You Dr. Michael Ho for your creation of healing.

  • Nancy M says:

    I have a slight disc bulge that causes numbness in my lower leg and foot and think this would be great to try out. If it works, I would recommend to my brother-in-law who has bad back pain.

  • tksinclair says:

    I WISH I could try this. As a chronic back pain sufferer and scoliosis this would be wonderful if it worked.

    I’ve done medication, chiropractor, bio feedback, physical therapy, injections, multiple surgeries and they tell me it’s now “soft tissue damage”. My posture is just getting worse and worse and concerns me…

    This would be a blessing…

  • Sacha Schroeder says:

    I struggle with back pain but am afraid of using a Chiropractor. This would be ideal.

  • Sandra Mooring says:

    I so need this belt. Me and my back hope you will let us test it!!! Please!!!

  • Daryl says:

    I fell off a ladder at work falling about 12′ to the cement floor. Breaking both feet and my left wrist in a way the surgeon couldn’t believe. After a year of pain pills a Dr. told me my back was way out. I didn’t have back pain with the fall, but then went to a accupressure chiropractor he picked me up and put me back on my spine. After a couple of months of his work I was feeling really good, but not complete. My special chiropractor got sick and could no longer treat me. I did get back to work but soon started to deterierate. I have been searching and asking for help thru work comp to no avail. I have so much leg muscle pain it keeps me up at night quite often. It keeps getting worse and now affects me from my buttox to shins.

  • Helen says:

    I need it… PLEASE CHOOSE ME to test it!

  • Debbie D says:

    Would love to test this belt. I am 59 and do frequent lifting of my disabled adult son. I’ve noticed in the last year that my lower back is often sore.

  • Lisa D says:

    Can an inflatable belt really stretch one’s back enough to overcome the compression caused by a herniated disc? I’d love to be able to answer that question!

  • jackie kirkpatrick says:

  • Brenda Leon says:

    I would love to test this!! I have spinal stenosis. As of now I can only stand or walk for only 10-15 minutes before pain forces me to sit or lay. Most of my day is in bed. I need something to help and give me my life back. I have been unable to work and on pain pills for over eight years. I am told it will put me in a wheelchair, that it just gets worse. Please choose me!!

  • Connied says:

    This would be a godsend! I just got back from the doctor, with a prescription for muscle relaxants and pain pills. I have gone to Chiropractors in the past, and I milked my insurance as long as I could to relieve my sciatica. I could and would use this product to prolong my visits. I did not know this product was available!

  • Angela K says:

    I suffer from a lot of backaches from working at my desk too long. This would be a great product for me to test!

  • Kathleeen says:

    I would be forever grateful if I test this and it helped my back pain. I have normal osteoarthritis and a bulging lumbar disc, but no MAJOR back problems. I just traveled halfway cross country to see family and pick up a puppy to train as a companion dog. As I was started on a new med by a doctor, it made me fall 3 times and my back muscles are sooooo tight. I have tried ice, heating pad, normal back brace, lidocaine prescribed patch. My back muscles need some rest from spasms, as I MUST train this puppy before she gets to the professional training at 4 months old, so if this product works, it would be like Heaven on Earth to be able to play and walk with no more back muscle spasms. I have been medically checked out, so the afore mentioned treatments are medically allowed. I have stress back muscle spasms without anything else that would be a negative to this belt. THANK YOU. I hope to try it and report a better back so that I will be able to let others know and help so many people.

  • Penny kopf says:

  • Patricia Collier says:

    I would like to try Dr. Ho’s Decompression Belt because my back was injured in 2000 and I have suffered from chronic pain ever since. Having back pain has severely restricted my life and even changed my personality. Perhaps Dr. Ho’s product could provide me with relief, or at least some light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you.

  • Danean Delinski says:

    I’m a 47 year old who has FAILED BACK SYNDROME/CHRONIC PAIN SYNDROME. I have a SPINAL CORD STIMULATOR that has been a God send for relief of the left Sciatic nerve pain. I have Degenerative Disc Disease from L1 thru S1. There is no surgical intervention that can be done. I have been dealing with this for the past 5 and 1/2 years. I have lived in pain for that time. I’m tired of dealing with Physicians who say that I have to learn to live with the pain. I can’t accept that, as I spent my life on an incredible nursing career. Now, I am on disability, my depression and anxiety are horrendous and many days I don’t even care if I get out of bed. I WANT MY LIFE BACK! I have 2 teenagers, a husband who works full time and then has to come home and do things I used to be able to do, such as laundry, cooking, yard work, etc. I have gained back weight I’d lost from Gastric Bypass surgery. I need help, but I don’t want to waste more money on one more thing that’s not going to work. PLEASE, I would so benefit from a free trial. I’m tired of being miserable. I can’t imagine the rest of my life being this miserable!

  • Joan Dizon says:

I do exercise but I when I sit or work a long time and don’t get to lay my back flat soon at night least for 4 hours I feel dis ease. I hope I can try one for 30 days and feel and see the difference. I would even promote this to my friends and all over if ever given the chance. Thank you very much.
