Testimonials

In this week’s newsletter, we have put together some of the testimonials which we have received from our clients across the world who have used our flagship product, Disk Dr.WG 30 belt. We are hoping that the feedback from our customers who have used our products will help people to know more details about our product, Disk Dr.WG 30

I’ve found a lot of pain relief when wearing the Disk Dr. belt, sometimes more than other times. If I’m not wearing it I’m usually in a lot of pain.Over the past 20+ years I have tried loads of belts and supports, been to physios and osteopaths seen my G.P. lots of times, done loads of exercise, with little help or improvements in pain or mobility, but the Disk Dr. WG30 has really helped with the pain unlike anything else. I have tried other belts before, but I was so desperate to get some pain relief that I took the chance, and am so glad I did. It has really helped me with the pain, being in bad pain is so depressing and Disk Dr. has helped me. I would give the Disk Dr. 9.5 out of 10. Thanks it is a really great product, and am so glad I got it –

The Disk Dr. WG30 belt has made a significant contribution to my mom’s rate of recovery. She is using it and it’s helping. I just spoke with her. Thank you very much  –

I find my Disk Dr. belt excellent for a number of reasons as I have had two discs removed following sporting injuries in the past and now I suffer from discs slipping / moving periodically. I’m in my sixties but still enjoy golf. I find that I can wear the Disk Dr. belt as a preventative measure when playing golf and long distance driving without discomfort or loss of turn movement. When I have pain I fit the belt and leave it in place for up to six hours. I find that the insertion of air actually causes the back to stretch and I can feel  the discs separate which allows spinal cord to move away from the disks and relief the pain. –

I am really satisfied with the Disk Dr. belt I have received from your site. I started gaining good pain relief and so I started recommending it to people I know who were suffering from back pain. The person who recommended this belt to me, told me that he gained 100% relief after approximately 3 months of use. I am really impressed with the engineering behind this belt as it does really do wonders. Thank you very much for your customer support, great service! –

Back Pain and Sleep

Dear Readers,

In this week’s newsletter from Orthomedical.in, we will focus on back pain and sleep. Back pain affects you or a family member and you might despair of ever getting a good night’s sleep. We came across this article in webmd and wanted to share it with our readers. Pain can disturb the sleep that your family needs, night after night. But experts say that with proper treatment, the chances are very good that you or your loved one can get relief from back pain and enjoy normal sleep. Below, find out about lifestyle tips for better sleep.

  • Choose a comfortable mattress and pillow. You don’t have to spend thousands of dollars on a mattress. Studies show that a medium-firm mattress is best for most people. The key is to use whatever is comfortable for you. If your mattress is too firm, you can add an egg crate mattress pad. Pillows come in all shapes and sizes. Find the one that’s right for you.
  • Sleep in a comfortable position, although try not to sleep on your stomach. It can cause you to arch your back. Bending backwards often aggravates chronic back pain. To break the habit, wear a sleep shirt with a pocket in front and put a tennis ball in it. For most people, the best position is to lie on your side in a fetal position with a pillow between your legs. If you prefer to lie on your back, put a pillow under your knees.
  • Establish a bedtime routine. Try to go to bed at the same time each night. Follow a routine, such as setting the alarm, putting on your pajamas, and brushing your teeth. Do not read, work, or watch TV in bed.
  • Minimize stress. Stress is the major cause of insomnia. It is also associated with chronic back pain.
  • Limit or eliminate caffeine. Even moderate caffeine use can cause insomnia and sleep disturbances.
  • Avoid eating heavily before bedtime. A heavy meal can cause acid reflux (heartburn) and keep you awake.
  • Don’t self-medicate with alcohol. It’s worth restating that alcohol impairs the quality of sleep.
  • Do some soothing exercises. Try relaxation techniques and ask your health provider or physical therapist about helpful exercises that you can do to help your back before going to bed.
While the best way to get a good night’s sleep is to get rid of chronic back pain, this is not always possible. Other factors such as stress, anxiety, and depression that affect sleep and pain might also need attention and treatment. Many people put up with pain, when in fact most back pain can be helped and treated successfully. Don’t give up on finding a treatment that can work for you.

Vertical Air Pressure technology for treating back pain

Vertical Air Pressure technology ( VAP)

In this week’s blog, we focus on a unique technology that makes our products one of the most effective products in the world for treating back pain.

Vertical Air Pressure technology ( VAP) is a unique technology which delivers high air pressure only vertically, therefore protecting lumbar vertebrate against gravity. This unique and patented Technology sets our products apart from all other ambulatory supports. This creates traction as the brace is inflated. This action increases the intervertebral disc space, decreases axial loading, and the pressure applied on the nerve root is relieved. Pain is reduced while assisting active rehabilitation

Image

Vertically expandable air pressure can give traction power ( around 50 kg) that can lift the upper body of a mature adult.

The VAP technology enables traction among vertebrate even with such pressure as low as 15 PSI. The powerful pneumatic pillars raise the back, producing intervertebral spaces of an average of 3mm sufficient enough to maintain herniated vertebral spaces. The product is inflated to produce traction in the vertebral column and thus ease lumbago, effectively treating herniated intervertebral discs and degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis. This help to get over lower back pain  without any surgical operation. If the operation in inevitable it cannot be helped. But it is recommended that back pain patients give Disk Dr.WG 30Disk Dr.WG 50 a try to overcome lumbago before opting for an operation. Disk Dr.WG 30 offers a comfortable feel of wear which ensures unrestricted freedom of activities as well as long time use. The users can enjoy comfortable wear in daily life, going to work, doing house work, going on travel, engaging in sports or enjoying hobbies.

Degenerative Disc Disease

In this week’s Newsletter from Orthomedical, we focus on a Degenerative Disc Disease which we came across in WebMD (http://www.webmd.com). Contrary to the term disease, Degenerative Disc disease is a term used to describe the normal changes in spinal discs as people age. The discs act as shock absorbers for the spine, allowing it to flex, bend, and twist. Degenerative disc disease can take place throughout the spine, but it most often occurs in the discs in the lower back (lumbar region) and the neck (cervical region). The below picture shows the spine and discs in the spine

Image

As we age, our spinal discs break down, or degenerate, which may result in degenerative disc disease in some people. These age-related changes include:

  • The loss of fluid in your discs. This reduces the ability of the discs to act as shock absorbers and makes them less flexible. Loss of fluid also makes the disc thinner and narrows the distance between the vertebrae.
  • Tiny tears or cracks in the outer layer (annulus or capsule) of the disc. The jellylike material inside the disc (nucleus) may be forced out through the tears or cracks in the capsule, which causes the disc to bulge, break open (rupture), or break into fragments.

The symptoms of Degenerative disc disease is that it may result in back or neck pain, but this varies from person to person. Many people have no pain, while others with the same amount of disc damage have severe pain that limits their activities. Where the pain occurs depends on the location of the affected disc. An affected disc in the neck area may result in neck or arm pain, while an affected disc in the lower back may result in pain in the back, buttock, or leg. The pain often gets worse with movements such as bending over, reaching up, or twisting.

During Clinical trials of  Back Treatment and Support Belt Disk Dr. WG30 which was carried out at the Department of Orthopaedic surgery, College of Medicine, Inje University Seoul Paik hospital, South Korea, in a similar situation experienced by patients during the trails, the interval of the intervertebral discs at the 4th and 5th segments of the lumbar spine were increased by an average of 3 mm and this was due to resultant lowering of intra-discal pressure by the Disk Dr. WG30 which has been shown to reduce pain and provide ongoing treatment through long-term wearing of the Traction Belt. In lumbar disc herniation patients before their treatment , the intervertebral disc or the the nucleus pulposus is extricated from it’s normal anatomic position in the intervertebral space. This herniated disc compresses on nerve roots and causes back pain, sciatics and muscle spasm. After treatment using Disk Dr.WG 30, it was observed that Disk Dr. helps return nucleus pulposus or the intervertebral disc to it’s original position by reducing the pressure in the intervertebral space creating traction through the air cells within the device.

Degenerative Disc Disease and Disk Dr Waist.

In this week’s blog from Orthomedical India, we shall discuss about Degenerative Disc Disease and Disk Dr WaistDegenerative disc disease is one of the most common causes of low back pain, and also one of the most misunderstood. Disc degeneration is a natural part of aging and over time all people will exhibit changes in their discs consistent with a greater or lesser degree of degeneration. However, not all people will develop symptoms. In fact, degenerative disc disease is quite variable in its nature and severity.

The lumbar disc is a unique and well-designed structure in the spine. It is strong enough to resist terrific forces in multiple different planes of motion, yet it is still very mobile. The disc has several functions, including acting as a shock absorber between the vertebral bodies. Generally, the pain associated with degenerative disc disease is thought to stem from two different factors: Inflammation and Abnormal micromotion instability

Most patients with degenerative disc disease will have some underlying chronic low back pain, with intermittent episodes of severe low back pain. The exact cause of these severe episodes of pain is not known, but it has been theorized that it is due to abnormal micro-motion in the degenerated disc that spurs an inflammatory reaction. In an attempt to stabilize the spine and decrease the micro-motion, the body reacts to the disc pain with muscle spasms. The reactive spasms are what make patients feel like their back has “gone out”.

Disk Dr. Waist

Disk Dr.is a unique back traction device, completely different from existing waist protectors. The Disk Dr. features a unique air pocket expansion system that helps combine both effective treatment and the relief of pain by helping to reduce pressure within the lumbar vertebrae. Disk Dr. Waist not only widens and supports lumbar vertebrae but it also forces muscles around the waist to exercise more.

The DiskDr’s patented, vertically expandable columns provide secure mechanical support for the lumbar vertebrae. The air inflated belt acts to provide a butress action between the lower part of the rib cage and a patient’s hip, diverting weight bearing forces away from the lumbar spine and thereby reducing intra discal pressure.

Disk Dr. Waist is recommended for Lower Back Pain, Herniated, Bulging disc, Degenerative disc, Lumbar acute/chronic sprain, Congenital weakness in waist, Low back pain caused by obesity, Spondylolysis, spondylolisthesis, spinal stenosis, Strenuous jobs requiring heavy lifting or long time driving, Low back pain of physical origin which need traction therapy

Disk Dr. Waist comes in three unique forms for back treatment and back support.
