Good value back support,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Magnetic Therapy Back Support - Lightweight Neoprene Brace by Neo Physio (Personal Care)
I hurt my back weeding the garden and although it is now much better, I still get a definite twinge when I bend in a certain way. I was nervous that I would put my back out again and thought that a back support might help. I found that most supports are pretty expensive and as I was unsure that one would actually help me, I did not want to spend too much. I saw this belt being sold at a very reasonable price compared with virtually every other belt being advertised so I thought I would give it a go. It certainly looks much the same as other belts. It is made of a thick, stretchy material and has magnets embedded in it both at the back and the front of the belt. It is quite comfortable to wear although it does dig into the ribs a bit if you sit down in it. I have been wearing it to do anything which involves bending such as hoovering, weeding etc, etc and I find that it does offer support and gives me some confidence that I won't put my back out again. It is too soon to say what the long term benefits might be, in particular whether the magnets will help at all. All in all, I thought this was excellent value for money and it is certainly worth a try if you have a weak back.
