After walking around limping for 6 months with what I was told was hip arthritis, an MRI divulged that I had been suffering from a disc tear between my L4 and L5. This tear was bulging and irritating the sciatic nerve. Sheer misery. I tried my husband's back support belt and it seemed to help. Since he needed it himself I decided to buy my own. My physio mentioned the decompression belt, something that they had started to trial at their department (a large university teaching hospital in central London).
Upon trying the belt I got instant relief from the pinching misery of sciatica. No electric shocks down to my knee. No more stabbing buttock pain. I like how it can be applied so easily and without struggling compared to my husband's large elastic velcro application. No pulling or stretching. I liked how it could be worn at night. It really got me some much-needed pain-free sleep! I also noticed that my son's local rugby and soccer club have one in their first aid kit. I am very happy with my purchase. It DID work for me.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
