My story starts 8 years ago. The doctors cut out two-thirds of my liver. I healed up and for about 1 year I was okay. I then started getting severe pain in my back. They found I had a growth that had eaten my L4 vertebra. It had also eaten the pads above and below the vertebrae! It ate the nerves that came through the L4 that go down to operate your lower legs. I was going to die so they said. I was put on palliative care and spent the next three years in bed in the fetal position. I was approached by the doctors and asked if they could do this experimental operation to see if they could repair my back. There was a 50/50 chance of living through it. I thought since I was dying anyway, why not. They put me on this cancer medication that was ten times stronger than average for a year so they could open me up. All of my teeth snapped off at the gums and fell out one by one. After about ten and half months my back broke and I shortened about 6 inches. The only thing that was holding me together was the growth. The top part of my spine went out, and the bottom part went in. The spinal cord had two ninety degree bends and was stretched about four inches between. Luckily the spinal cord wasn’t severed.
The doctors stretched me back to normal height and put a six inch piece of femur bone from a female cadaver. The operation was thirteen hours with six doctors. I am metal from the top of my shoulder to my tail bone. There are three different devices to hold everything and allow me to move. After, I healed amazingly and started to walk in a semi bent over position with a cane. The cords in the back of my legs had contracted from not using them over three years. I ate 300 mg’s of ovicodone per day for the pain. I was supported to go into the hospital to have my legs straightened when I got a diabetic ulcer on the bottom of my big toe. That took another three years to heal without having it amputated (that’s another story.) As I learned to walk in the semi crouched position, bending over at the same time, I developed a bend in the back. I am going to have my legs straightened in a couple of months. My back that was straight will still have the bend in it and would have taken extensive therapy to straighten. I saw the Dr. Ho belt on TV and thought it may help, so I ordered it. Since I have been using it, my back is straightening out. It also has taken a lot of my pain away so I don’t have to take nearly as many pills. I am walking better and no cane!
Thank you Dr. Ho. I am a firm believer of this product. It works miracles and I would recommend it to anyone. Again, thank you very much.
I just want to thank you. For the first time in at least 20 years I am 99% pain free and that is after only 51/2 days of using the tens unit plus the belt. I get out of bed in the morning feeling great and spend the whole day feeling that way. Nancy told me to use the machine and belt every day for the next 3 to 4 weeks, (at least 3 times a day)or until I am pain free and I am following her advise to the letter. I still have the occasional twinge of pain but they are coming less and less frequently. I'm now hoping that by the first of the year I can stop taking the pain medications that I have been taking for the last 20 years that only work about 50% of the time (if that) and just keep them in the house for emergencies. Really hoping I won't need them at all. You have given me my life back. No more nights of sitting up until dawn crying from the pain in my low back,hips and legs. No more syatic nerve pain. MY only regret is that I didn't have this tens machine and the traction belt years ago. I could have avoided years of debilitating pain. I could have spent that time doing something other than sitting on the sidelines watching everyone else enjoy their life and feeling miserable from the pain. The smartest thing I ever did was going to your clinic at the Shoppers Drug Mart by Scarborough General Hospital last week even though I had to practically crawl to get into the car due to the pain I was in. Thank you and God bless.

2-in-1 Decompression Back Belt with FREE Magic Heat Pad
Developed by back pain specialist Dr. Michael Ho, the Decompression Belt is unlike any other support or back pain belt, because it also provides clinical grade traction and decompression therapy. Decompression is a proven technique endorsed by medical professionals used in both upper and low back pain treatment, without the need for surgery or drugs.
Just wrap the Decompression Belt firmly around your waist, attach the pump, and inflate the belt. As the belt inflates with air, it expands vertically, gently stretching and tractioning the lower back. This gentle traction helps decompress the spinal discs and stretch and relax tight muscles to relieve lower back pain.
Because the HoPhysio Belt fills with air, it is not bulky and very light, so you can wear this discreetly underneath your every day clothes. Wear it for just 30 minutes a day as a therapy belt. Or wear it all day while you work and play as an activity belt. You can even wear the Belt to get a restful night’s sleep. The dual purpose of the HoPhysio Belt allows you to not only get home physiotherapy, but also allows you to be active and do everything you’ve avoided. Treating chronic and acute back pain has never been easier.
People of all ages and all sizes, from young athletes to seniors, are getting fast, long-lasting back pain relief with the HoPhysio Belt. Remember, with the HoPhysio Decompression Belt, there’s no pills, no appointments, just less bills and pain relief for back pain.
