I've had problems with my lower back for months and have tried just about
everything. I had heard about magnets and when I saw the belt with the magnets I thought it was worth a try.
The quality of the belt is excellent and the Velcro that holds the belt on is perfect, no slipping and not at all uncomfortable. The fit is also as good as you could hope for.
I wouldn't go as far as to say it "cured" my back problem, but it has certainly helped.

I need a back belt for lumbar stenosis. My back hurts all the time and after trying this in place of a regular back belt it seems to help with the pain. I'm not to sure about how the magnetics work but it does. I recommend this to anyone needing a back support belt, with the magnetic aspect it does seem to work, and I am ordering another to have as a backup if this belt get to where it needs replaced. i worry that if it does fail due to my daily use that another wouldn't be available. so I am buying a spare because i do think it helps. The additional pouch lets me put an ice pack on with ease as a bonus.

After searching unsuccessfully for some time for a magnetic back support belt we were pleased to find one that appeared to fit our needs at Overstock.com. When it arrived we were so pleased with the quality and the fact that it was exactly what we needed, that we ordered a second one. Also, the delivery speed was excellent. Thank you Overstock.com.

The belt seems a bit pricey for what it is, but the quality seems good so it might be worthwhile. I like the inside pouch which comes in handy since it can hold a cold or hot compress. It's still rather new so I'd like to see how it holds up with a bit more use.
I've had lower back issues due to a bad fall almost 20 years ago and they've been getting worse as I get older. I've been looking for a magnetic support belt similar to one my mother purchased in a retail store some years ago, which they no longer make, to keep me mobile (and out of the chiropractic/PT offices) when I have to do stuff that I know will put more strain on my lower back like yard work, shoveling, moving furniture, cleaning, etc. This belt is the closest thing I've found for a decent price to the one my mother wears. So far, I've had very good results with it. I've been trying to help demolish a pool deck and didn't have the belt the first time I worked on it. I noticed an immediate difference the next time I worked on it using this belt. I've even worn it during a workout when my back was a little achy and it helped with that as well.
I had a double microdiscectomy 2years ago which got rid of my extreme leg pain caused by nerves being pinched in my back but the surgery left me with a constant dull pain in my lower back. I really did my research before I decided on a new back brace to try to fix this problem and what I found was this brace. I found info online that explains that after surgeries scar tissue can cause blood to not circulate properly which causes a dull pain because the blood keeps everything working correctly. Magnets gets the blood flowing properly, there are different strengths of magnets and this brace had the highest strength for a reasonable price. I'm not a doctor so I cannot say 100% how exactly they work and there isn't a whole lot of info on them online but my findings do seem logical and I have seen real improvements with this brace. I don't have a dull pain when I have it on and no pain for a while after I take it off too. I wear it pretty much daily and people don't even realize it because it is thin and nude colored. The only time anyone notices I'm wearing it is when I tell them. It also has a pocket behind the magnets which is the perfect size for an ice pack, it's the only brace I found that has a pocket in it. I highly recommend this product for anyone who has constant dull back pain.
I really enjoy with this belt.I kept searching this type of magnetic belt on line for a while and could not see other products offer look better

I saw great reviews on this product so was excited to try it for myself. It did not help with my pain. The pouch for a heat pack or ice pack is great! Without heat or ice I had no relief from the pain.

I bought this for my father who has lower back problems. He's not a believer in magnet therapy but needed a new back belt anyway. I had it mailed to him as a gift & he wears it everyday and loves it so I'm assuming it works! No complaints!
