Review - Use This Decompression Belt to Ease Your Back Pain for Good


Dr. Ho'sMy husband has suffered from back pain and problems for as long as I've known him.  He's been in one too many car accidents and had one too many sports-related injuries for his back to ever be "normal" again.  Because of this incessant pain, my husband gets deep-tissue massages on a regular basis which seem to work temporarily.  The one thing each and every masseuse tells him is that the muscles in his lower back are extremely weak.

Dr. Michael Ho is a Doctor of Chiropractic and Acupuncture and has been practicing and teaching for more than 18 years.  He believes that the body has incredible healing powers and under the right conditions, these healing powers can potentially restore the body's prior functions.  Dr. Ho recognized that some elements are common amongst people who suffer from similar conditions, such as lower back pain. Armed with this knowledge, Dr. Ho continuously works with innovative engineers and scientists to develop products designed and formulated to help address the specific underlying causes of a problem.

The Decompression Belt is one of his latest inventions and sounded perfect for my husband to try.

I reviewed the Decompression Belt from Dr. Ho's which retails for $320.00, but is currently on sale for $159.96.

The Decompression Back Belt from Dr. Ho is great for anyone suffering from lower back pain, stiffness or tension.  It is unlike any other support or back pain belt, because it provides clinical grade traction and decompression therapy.  Decompression is a proven technique endorsed by medical professionals used in both upper and lower back pain treatment, without the need for surgery or drugs.

Decompression BeltThe Decompression Belt is ideal for:

  • Low back pain and hip pain
  • Degenerative and herniated discs
  • Sciatica related leg pain and numbness
  • Back pain from work, play and sports
  • Stress-related back pain

Using this device is extremely easy too.  First, make sure that the Decompression Belt is completely deflated.  Next, position the belt around your waist so that the bottom of the belt sits just about your hip.  Shift the belt into position so that it is properly aligned on your waist and then tighten it as much as you can.  A very snug fit is imperative for proper results, which is why it's extremely important to order the right size belt.

Decompression Back BeltNext, pump up the belt using the included hand pump until you begin to hear the belt hiss.  Make sure that you're in the standing position while putting on the belt so that the fit you achieve is optimal.  Now that your belt is pumped up and secure, you should lie down with your knees propped up under two pillows, or sit relaxed in a comfortable chair.

You are encouraged to wear the Decompression Belt at least 3-4 times each day for 30 minutes each time.  Doing so will help train your muscles and your spine to adapt to the effects of traction.  Your back will begin to get stronger and feel better.  Once this happens, you can begin wearing the inflated belt several times per day for up to an hour at a time.  The Decompression Belt can be worn uninflated too and serves as an extra level of protection for your back.  You can wear an uninflated belt as often as you'd like, even while sleeping.

My husband has been wearing this device regularly for two weeks now.  He said that during the first few days of initial use, his back pain actually increased a tad, but after that, he could tell a dramatic difference for the better.  He claims to sleep better and feel better in general.  Wearing the Dr. Ho's Decompression Belt is also saving us money because my husband hasn't felt the need to go get one of those deep-tissue massages so far.

If you'd like to begin using the Dr. Ho's Decompression Belt, be sure to get proper clearance from your doctor and never wear it if you have any of the following conditions:

  • Dr. Ho's Decompression BeltLumbar spine damage
  • Acute lumbar injuries
  • Spinal fractures
  • Rib fractures
  • Pelvic fractures
  • Severe osteoporosis
  • Serious cardiovascular or respiratory diseases
  • Pregnant

    I have a back problem since I was a teenager and I can tolerate pain very well until it so bad that I can’t get up. Sometime I have to crack my back or put some kind of ointment to relieve the pain. I think this device will help to relieve my pain without putting ointment or drinking pain medication.

    I have severe back pain… to the point I can only stand for 3 minutes. I would love to give this a try and see if it could help give me some mobility back

    TawndaM Says:


    this is intriguing because it sounds so easy… & this house is no stranger to chronic back pain. Unfortunately, it would require an informed decision of who the in-house guinea pig would be due to the size variation… but that can wait til after the win ☺

    deb c Says:


    I have a bit of Scoliosis and I had an orthopaedic surgeon tell me I’d always have back problems. So far, he’s been right. I help it by taking yoga and stretching
    classes to keep limber and would love to try this.

    Sandy VanHoey Says:


    I have many back issues as well and feel like it is crippling me. Started with arthritis in lumbar and has worsened to where I am always in pain with my back

    Karen Medlin Says:


    I like that you can wear even while you are sleeping, or even all day long. The corset the hubs wear now, is a bit bulky and heavy.. this is nice with it being so light weight.

    Kimberly Schotz Says:


    My husband has constant back pain and uses prescription pain patches to manage the pain. Sadly, the side effects of the pain medication can be difficult to deal with. I am curious to try this, it seems like a non invasive way to manage pain.

    I have had back issues since slipping and falling down the stairs 3 times in 5 months.

    Robin Quick Says:


    Because my husband has degenerative disc disease and has chronic back pain. Im interested in seeing if this relieves the pain at all.

    Rob Says:


    I tend to get a really sore back from standing for a short while, especially when I try to do the dishes but there isn’t a ton I can do about it because it’s caused by my auto immune disorder (celiac disease) just part of the way it’s messed me up unfortunately. I’d like to actually try one of these someday even if I don’t win.

    Michele P Says:


    my husband cleans floors for a living, and it is hard work working all night keeping those store floors clean. He often has to bend down and use a razor blade to get areas that have build up on them and is constantly using floor care machinery as well as moving racks etc… this would provide him with good support which he needs.

    Jasanna Says:


    My husband has back problems too!!!

    Debbie Petch Says:


    For as long as i can remember, I have had this pain!

    Tania B Says:

    Jill Myrick Says:


    My husband repetatively lifts a lot of weight at work foe 8-10 hours. And comes home often with a sore back. I think that this belt would be great for him. And help him to not only lift better but also feel better.


    Eileen Says:


    I have been dealing with severe back pain/issues and many surgeries since a horrible traffic accident involving a semi when I was just 19, on my way to college. After 5 surgeries in my 20’s, my fusion is still loose and I actually feel like my back is going to fold and collapse. I was such a lucky mom to be able to have children as I was told it was not the best idea. The timing for this review could not be better. I am down for the count on bedrest and at the end of a 3+ month wait to get into a specialist. I am so interested in finding if this product would work for a sort of smaller woman? Most products are not sized for smaller frames. I have all of my lumbar region halfway fused with the right side loose. With most people having spine surgeries on bone (not discs) you learn the next vertebrae up just takes the pressure and will degenerate from this and/or genetic disposition as in my case. Save the fact that another surgery may not help, this support could be my lifesaver. This weekend was the first time in 4 years I required a wheelchair to get around. It is not a fun thing for me or my family to have to resort to this. I am only 52 and not ready to give up on my mobility. I am heading to the links to this company. I am sure my insurance won’t pay but am going to ask about this at my appt. on the 17th. Thanks!
