It’s no fun  to live with a bad back and when you’ve been dealing with one for a long time, it can seem like a hopeless uphill battle.

Don’t throw in the towel just yet!

You can manage chronic lower back pain as well as improve upon your symptoms. You might even be able to eliminate your back pain forever.

When you look at the options to treat chronic lower back pain, you’ve got some choices.

Expensive vs. Economical

Expensive is..

  • Surgery, Physical Therapy, Chiropractors, and some types of Medical Devices.

On the Economical Side, We’ve Got..

  • Exercises, Yoga, Hot/Cold Packs, E-Stem Machines, Foam Rollers, Therapy balls, etc.

So there’s a variety of choices and I’ve tried most all of them over the years as a Therapist and as a back pain sufferer.

About 9 months ago, a brand new product was released to the marketplace.

Today we will look at this new device as well as give you a few helpful suggestions and resources to improve your back health.

If you need a solution to your chronic lower back pain, one that you can do at home and that’s inexpensive, you’ve come to right place.

Let’s begin..

Chronic Lower Back Pain Treatment: Think Holistically


What we’ve found in therapy and in clinical studies is that people who suffer low back pain get the best results from from a variety of therapies and exercises.

But mostly, from exercise, that is proper exercises for low back pain.

We’ve outlined a structured approach to treating chronic lower back pain, click the link to learn more.

In general, if we can calm down the lower back, improve mobility, and increase strength, we can get the back to function again without experiencing pain.

And this is the entire point.

The Invertabelt combined with exercise, occasional use of hot and cold packs, and a little bit of education and you’ll get great results.

The Invertabelt itself combines manual therapy, core strengthening, flexibility, and neuromuscular re-education, and it works great when used in conjunction with some healthy back pain specific exercises

At the same time..

Why Do You Have Chronic Lower Back Pain? 


Before getting to the exercises of our favorite new chronic lower back pain treatment, you’ve got to figure out what is the cause of your pain.

Is it your posture when you work?

Do you spend all day at your desk (this is my problem working online)?

Or is it just that you have decreased strength in your hips and core strength (also an issue in my situation )?

We want to take a holistic approach with chronic back pain.

Find out what’s causing the pain then create systems to prevent the cause.

If you don’t stop the source of your pain you’ll never be free of lower back pain.

So how does one do this?

Check Your Ergonomics and Prevent Back Pain


I work online a lot, and my lower back pain is always related to my sitting posture.

I sit far too many hours without taking breaks, and sometimes find myself in awkward positions.

Neck protruding forward, upper back slumped, lower back slouched, etc.

OH, if you need help with sitting posture, check out this post to learn how to monitor and improve your sitting posture.

Bottom line..

Find out what’s causing your back pain.

It could be the way you sit when driving, your sleep positions, how you lift objects off the ground, etc..

By knowing the cause of your back pain, you can be proactive to make the appropriate changes in your daily routines.

More Practical Ergonomic Applications..


I’ll Use Myself as the Example Again.

I set my mirrors in my car so that when I’m driving, I’m forced to have good posture in order to use my mirrors.

I put the side and rear view mirrors into position once I’ve found a nice upright sitting posture.

Make sure you don’t have the Turtle Head Posture – Neck/Chin protruding forward.

Another Ergonomic Example:

Recently I purchases a height adjustable lift to be able to work in sitting or standing, like a Veridesk.

I can adjust the computer height and keyboard angle.

This gives me a variety of positions to work from versus being forced to work in an awkward sitting position.

Basic Ergonomic Information:

Proper ergonomics prevent numerous nerve impingement syndromes and chronic pain disorders.

Things like..

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Golfers and Tennis Elbow
  • Neck Nerve Impingement
  • Knots in your Upper Back & Neck

With a little preventative care, we can avoid chronic repetitive stress disorders.

Now I can stand while working and move around as my body needs. This alone has made a significant improvement in my chronic lower back pain.

Next we need to get to work and learn some healthy back exercises and leverage this thing called The Invertabelt.

New Chronic Lower Back Pain Treatment: Hello Invertabelt 


The Invertabelt provides the necessary therapeutic exercise you need to improve your back health.

It will strengthen, stretch, decompress and return function back to your spine.

It also provides an Overpressure and Decompression to the spine.

Another aspect that I love about this product is that it provides a manual therapy technique that decreases spastic muscle tone in the lower back.

This is something that usually requires the skills of a Physical Therapist.

So you can independently administer this technique whenever you want.

For me, it’s always my lower back (left side) that gets tight. I can stretch it in forward flexion and do prone back extension exercises. Like this…

But my lower back muscles tighten up again once I release from a forward flexion position and return to a standing or sitting position.

When I stand while working, I can pull on the strap of the Invertabelt to give my lower back a firm manual pressure.

This causes those tight low back muscles to relax and I can continue working.

This basically allows me to break my negative lower back pain cycle.

The Invertabelt is also very economical for what you get (basically the perfect ‘Low Back Pain’ Home Exercise Program).

Forget the Doctor visits, Physical Therapy bills or pain pills.

Plus, you can use this product anywhere you go.

I feel that the Invertabelt is the best value of all the products I’ve used to manage lower back pain at home and on my own.

Conclusion


Chronic lower back pain treatment can be thought of in terms of managing inflammation through cold therapy, augment the healing process through massage, heat, therapeutic exercises and stretches.

If you need more practical applications, read our post on how to treat low back pain.

Many times when we have chronic pain, we don’t want to do anything.

That’s the opposite of what we need to do.

Instead we want to find some activity we can engage in that is free of pain and allows for movement.

This will decrease your low back pain while improving upon your daily functions.

In turn, you’ll return to everyday activities and increase your independence with mobility and daily activities.

The Invertabelt provides you with plenty of exercises that will not only decrease your lower back pain, they’ll teach you how to care for your back in the future, if not cure it.

And for that reason, the Invertabelt is the best new chronic lower back pain treatment on the current market.

    This is a really interesting product that I had never heard of. While yoga keeps my back relatively pain free, I do know people who live with chronic back pain.

    I’m sort of confused how it work though. Do you happen to have a video link showing how exactly this works and how you wear it?

      Hi Katie,

      The products website has around 20 videos and it’s pretty easy. You just got to get the tension right and play with it.

      Check out our Invertabelt Review and we’ve got a couple videos that show how to use it.

      Essentially you tighten the belt and the foot strap and put yourself into various positions (lots of prone with extension) and this decreases muscle tightness and ‘sort of’ resets the back pain neurologically and improves movement in the all the back angles and directions you will need.

      Check out the review and i think it will make more sense.

    Hi there your website is very informative and lots of good content here about lower back pain. I’m going to bookmark it for later use and also to show a few people that could use this treatment. The Invertabelt seems to be a great choice for my back as well. Thanks for the read and I’ll spread the word.
    Cheers

      Cheers Jeremy and thanks for the kind feedback on the site and the Invertabelt. 

      I certainly was impressed with it and still use it for core strengthening and for low back pain.

      Thanks,

      Todd

    Hi Todd,

    When I get lower back pain it is usually sciatic nerve pain that is brought on by gardening (pulling weeds) or doing a marathon run or vacuuming in the house. 

    When this happens, I usually go to my local chiropractor who fixes me up and then he reminds me that I am not a spring chicken anymore and to slow it down a bit.

    Do you have any suggestions as to what I can do to prevent this from happening?

      Hi Ramona,

      Sciatica nerve pain and low back pain are pretty much the same thing since the sciatica nerve is always involved with low back pain.

      Regardless, your Chiropractor is right in reminding you to moderate your activities.

      I think you would really benefit from a daily low back pain exercise routine.

      These symptoms will only get worse if you’re not doing proactive things to keep your body in good form.

      Chiropractors typically alleviate pain, it’s a short term fix to a problem. You need the long term fix.

      That is.. a review of your posture in functional positions like work, if you sit at a desk for long periods, etc.

      Then to simply incorporate a healthy daily low back exercise routine that includes core strengthening and low back specific exercises.

      You can always join a Yoga studio and get great results. You can also incorporate these low back strengthening, and stretching exercises to your daily schedule. 

      30 minutes daily is all the investment you’ll need to keep things running well. I think you’ll find better results with this type of program.

      You may even prevent from having any back pain while doing your marathons/daily tasks.

      The other solid investment you could go with is the Invertabelt system, it’s an amazing product loaded with exercises that you can do daily to completely prevent further back related issues.

      If you go with the Invertabelt, make sure you review all the training material. Their exercises alone will keep your back in good shape for years to come. 

      Best,

      Todd

    Hi Todd,

    I have had low back pain for several years now. I do a lot of sitting at work and my pain gets worse as the day goes on and I sit longer.

    I try to take frequent breaks and I even use a mckenzie roll for lumbar support (which does help). How do you think the lumbar roll compared to the Invertabelt in regards to managing/monitoring posture?

    Thanks,
    John

      Hey John,

      Great question and in my opinion, I’d encourage you to try the Invertabelt.
      Why’s that?

      Although lumbar supports like the McKenzie Roll will give you a bit of cuing (tactile cuing) to sit up better and support the lumbar section, it’s not the same as teaching your lower back to sit with correct posture.

      The Invertabelt does 2 things that I love when working long hours sitting at my desk.

      1. I wear the belt snug. When you use the Invertabelt, you wear it pretty snug around the waste. The causes a pressure that can be applied when force is exerted on the front of the belt via the Blue Strap.

      This causes a release of tight lower back muscles. Something that can be a challenge to alleviate through stretching and exercise.

      Even when I’m sitting there, that little extra pressure allows my back to relax. If my lower back starts to tense up, I can do a back arch/extension and get a manual release from the belt aspect of the Invertabelt.

      2. The Invertabelt Postural System: Get yourself sitting in a good upright posture, feel free to read this post to get an idea of what good sitting posture looks like.

      Once you’ve got the position (already wearing the Invertabelt) and add the resistance bands around the tops of your knees, instantly, you’re posture will be improved and the appropriate muscles for good sitting posture will engage.

      Using this product is like a muscle memory reminder. It cues you to sit properly and allows you muscles to learn this muscle pattern.

      So in a nutshell, I believe this product (if used consistently for several months) will allow your body to inherently learn to sit with correct posture.

      Just like learning how to hit a baseball or walk on your hands. Any movement based skill can be learned until they become second nature.

      One other thing John, I’ve been using a sit to stand desk lift. I think I’m stating that correctly. I’ll be doing a review on the one I bought which I think is awesome. It allows more control over the positioning of the keyboards and monitor/keyboard height.

      But definitely something you should consider in addition to the Invertabelt for sitting at your desk for long periods of time.

      Hope that helps.

      Thanks,
      Todd

    OK I’m sold on the invertabelt. I have for years imagined but not ever done inverted sit-ups on say a weight machine. I’ve always thought lifting backward would alleviate my lower back pain. But I never thought of having resistance added plus some kind upward force from the hips. On the Amazon site is has a special with some handle bar things that go with it. Can you tell me something about that? thanks in advance for the answer

      Hey Gord, thanks for your feedback our chronic lower back pain treatment post, I think you’ll be happy with the results of the Invertabelt.

      I use mine every day, I’m wearing right now in sitting to help my sitting posture (learn how to correct your sitting posture here).

      I think you’ll be happy with how versatile this product is for low back pain issues. I checked Amazon and didn’t see it paired with anything.

      Sometimes Amazon will pair two products that are frequently bought together. It’s just a marketing technique to get you to buy more stuff.

      Thanks,

      Todd
