It’s wonderful to be able to provide a discreet way for individuals suffering from back pain to finally have relief. No one should feel that they are being held back from living their best life by discomfort and stress
Toronto,ON (PRWEB) August 14, 2012
May 2012 marked the approval of DR-HO’S Decompression Back Belt and the DR-HO’S Pain Therapy TENS system as Swiss approved medical devices in Europe.
Under Switzerland’s most rigorous approval process, both DR-HO’S products became officially registered as medical devices to be covered by Swiss government insurance. Now, consumers won't have to incur out-of-pocket expenses to purchase both DR-HO’s units. Doctors can now prescribe these two products that are covered by the Swiss Medic System to patients experiencing back pain and muscle tension. These products originated in Canada and are now available in Europe and several countries around the world.
The registration numbers for these two products under the Swiss Medic System (http://www.swissmedic.ch) are:
TENS:MiGel Nummer 09.02.01.00.1
BackBelkt:MiGel Nummer 05.14.03.00.1
Having met all the necessary criteria in Switzerland to become approved as medical devices in Europe, the Decompression Back Belt and Pain Therapy TENS system offers a non-drug alternative for European citizens to help relieve symptoms of common painful conditions. These products are known to help relieve pain and muscle tension associated with migraine headaches, neck pain, back pain, degenerative discs, nerve pain, numbness, arthritic pain, sports injuries and stress induced tension and pain. These are all clinical products reinvented by Dr. Michael Ho for home therapy, allowing people with pain to live an active and healthy live without the use of drugs or surgeries.
According to the National Health Service in England, about 9.3 million working days were lost due to work-related back pain and other musculoskeletal disorders in 2008 through 2009. The longer individuals are immobile when sitting at work or otherwise, the weaker back muscles become, which can lead to more back pain. DR-HO’S Decompression Back Belt supports the back to improve stability and alignment of the lower back. The Belt also helps to stretch or traction the lower back to release tension and to decrease pressure on spinal discs. This mobile traction belt allows a person with degenerative disc problems with Sciatica nerve pain to get relieve without having surgery or attend expensive sessions of decompression therapy in hospital. This is a traction belt that can be worn while sitting, walking and even while sleeping. The belt also allows the back to become stronger by stretching and relaxing the deep layers of tense muscles in the lower back. The belt is non-powered, and works by inflating with an accompanying hand-held air pump. It’s portable and safe to use.
“It’s wonderful to be able to provide a discreet way for individuals suffering from back pain to finally have relief,” said Dr. Ho, a back specialist with special interest in helping people with pain. “No one should feel that they are being held back from living their best life by discomfort and stress. Now that my back belt is prescription approved, those suffering from back pain can enjoy a pain free lifestyle.”
DR-HO’S Decompression Back Belt provides decompression therapy which has been used by doctors for over a century, but would typically be expensive, time consuming, and restricting. The Decompression Back Belt works by expanding and decompressing to stretch the lower back muscles, relieving pressure off the back and providing pain relief. It mimics the treatment a patient would receive at a chiropractor’s office by inflating to provide core strength and support in the spine. Along with clinical grade traction to help back pain sufferers relieve and manage their lower back pain, the belt is designed to be lightweight and discreet enough to be used throughout daily activities.
DR-HO’S Pain Therapy TENS system is a state of the art transcutaneous nerve stimulation device which works to stimulate the nerve and muscles to relieve muscle tension, improve circulation and, relieve pain. A published clinical study in the Journal of Musculoskeletal Pain, conducted in Canada by Dr. Stuart McGill has proven that significant results can be measured after one 20 minute session. This is a TENS device with proprietary technology that works to relax tense muscles and quickly relieve pain. The device comes with different size electrodes for relieving pain in different body areas, a pad placement chart and even a pair of special pads for foot massage. Unlike other TENS devices that tend to be uncomfortable to use, DR-HO’S TENS device provides a deep, soothing massage sensation that induces deep relaxation. It operates on two AAA batteries, and is safe and portable.
These DR-HO’S pain relief products are best for pain, provide relief for anyone suffering from muscle tension and pain as a result of car accidents, work injuries, slips and falls, and trouble sleeping.
