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!
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 have used magnet therpy for lower back pain in the past. When I moved I misplaced my old belt. When I received my new belt, I put it on expecting quick results but was a little disappointed with the power of the magnets compared to my old belt. The price of the new belt though was much cheaper than my old belt. If you have belts with larger/more powerful magnets, I would be interested in info.
