If you’ve got back pain and are looking for a permanent solution, Do Not Overlook the Invertabelt.
I almost did and what a mistake that would have been.
After scouring Amazon for some helpful home-based back pain solutions, I found two products I decided to order.
The first product was from Shark Tank’s Lori Greiner called Lo-Bak TRAX – shown below (Not impressed and sent it back to Amazon).
The other product I took a shot on is called The Invertabelt…
Boy I ‘m glad I went with it.
The Invertabelt looks pretty simple in design, but the effectiveness to decrease and eliminate low back pain is no joke.
I’m so happy with the results of this product.
I feel there is really nothing else on the market that offers so much to low back pain suffers like myself.
That is.. In terms of value for the price.
If you suffer from lower back pain, decreased mobility, and increased frustration with your back pain, you might want to consider getting an Invertabelt.
Let’s begin the review.
The Invertabelt Review – Product at a Glance
Name: The Invertablet
Creators: The Oakford Group
For: Back Pain Suffers
Verdict: 98/100 – Works Like a Charm!
What is The Invertabelt?
The Invertabelt is a simple therapeutic device that you can use to..
- Decrease low back pain
- Increase range of motion for the back and lower body
- Improve the ease of every day movements
- Build core muscle stregth
- Potentially eliminate back pain all together 🙂
It’s made of super strong webbing, like what rock climbers use to scale mountains.
It has a simple design of a belt and foot strap, both made of webbing, with two circular resistance bands that attach to the belt.
The Invertabelt can be used in multiple positions (sitting, standing, laying down).
It comes with a ton of great exercises and helpful training videos to walk you through the proper use of the product.
It is relatively new to the market, being introduced in places like Amazon about 6 months ago.
The product was created by an advanced group of Physical Therapists called the The Oakford Group.
They created the Invertabelt to solve one problem, and that’s low back pain.
How Does The Invertabelt Work?
The Invertabelt is based on a couple physiological/anatomy principles, the McKenzie Method®/dynamic disc model and pain science.
The Invertabelt allows the user to apply what’s called Overpressure within the spine.
I don’t want to go into an anatomy/physiology lessen here, but essentially by exerting an overpressure to the spine, we can decrease pain and improve motion to our back.
Especially in the lower back!
The best way I can describe this experience is like a calm embrace.
It calms your muscles and normalizes pain.
When you have the pressure from the belt, then add additional tension from the Foot Strap and/or Resistance Bands, you get a softening of tight muscles that helps you relax.
At the same time, you get a decompression and overpressure of the spinal column in the lower back.
This results in decreased pain and softened muscle tone, all while improving upon motion within that painful area.
What I Liked:
There’s a ton of things to love about this product.
You may not think it’s so powerful just by looking at it, but it really does a number on tight and sore lower backs.
Here’s what’s to Love about the Invertabelt…
- It’s Lightweight and Compatible – You can take this product anywhere, like work, on vacations, etc.
- Educational Videos provided are short and easy to follow
- Plethora of daily exercises to improve core strength
- Instant Decrease in Low Back Pain!
- Improved Back Motion
- You Can Grade all the Exercises (discussed below)
- Awesome Customer Service
- Excellent price for all that you get = Excellent Value!
I’ve have had back pain off and on for over 20 years, but over the last 4 years I’ve had chronic lower back pain.
Lower left side most all the time. I’m also an Occupational Therapist, did 5 years of Yoga, and have a decent understanding of how to manage back pain.
I also recently finished 3 months of PT sessions and dry needling (which has solid results) at $120/45 minutes.
The Invertabelt only costs $49.95, less than 1/2 of one of my PT sessions. I did like 20 sessions!
At this point I’ve bought Foam Rollers, Therapy Balls, an Inversion/Tilt Machine and I’m using the Invertabelt and getting really positive results.
As for the Invertabelt goes, there’s really nothing but value in this product in terms of pricing, functionality, and results.
What I Didn’t Like:
There’s really nothing to dislike with this product.
I would recommend improving upon the organization of their educational website a bit, but that will come in time.
It is a new product so that can be expected.
I did have one of the Red Resistance bands break on me a couple weeks into using it.
I’m pretty careful with these types of things and watched all the videos. Maybe I did something wrong, but one of the bands broke.
I emailed the owners and the customer service was incredible.
They instantly sent me a new one and really wanted to know what happened in order to improve upon their product.
Since then, I’ve been using my new Invertabelt and haven’t had any issues with it for over 2 months now.
Bottom line, really solid customer service and it’s nice to know the company cares about their customers and products.
Their website will get better and maybe they’ll need to strengthen the bands, but all in all, nothing to dislike here.
Invertabelt and Grading: What’s this Guy Talking About?
Grading is a therapy concept of making a task or exercise easier or harder to find the appropriate challenge for the patient.
As we master easier tasks, we grade up to more difficult tasks to achieve whatever goal we’re going after.
At the same time, if something’s too hard, we grade down to achieve results.
The Invertabelt is extremely easy to grade for stretching, core strength exercises and the decompression and overpressure of the spine.
Simply by changing the tension on the waist belt or foot strap, or by moving into a different position, we can find the right challenge our bodies need.
This makes this product work for the user on an individual basis.
How to Use the Invertabelt?
There’s a ton of exercises that are included with the program.
They give great examples and show proper techniques on how to use the product.
Here’s a few Invertabelt Exercises that will give you an idea as to how this product works.
It may not look like much is happening in the video below, but the pressure from the foot strap and resistance bands provides decompression and overpressure to the spine.
Check it out.
This is how you can tell the Invertabelt was created by physical therapists.
Sounds like Boot Camp for folks with back pain. 🙂
I kid… 😉
It’s actually a great video to demonstrate the majority of the exercises you can do with this product.
With each one of these exercises, you can do them slowly and for repititions, or hold the end range of the motion to decrease pain and improve mobility.
You might find something that really works for your kind of back pain.
Plus you can develop a daily exercise routine to keep the results you gain by using this product.
I’ve found the Invertabelt to be one of my go-to-tools to not only manage my back pain, but significantly lesson it.
I’m hoping to have it gone soon as I keep using the product.
Just got to keep up with my daily exercises!
Special Note: If you go with this product to help your back pain, you’ve got to follow the instructions and stick to the program daily to get good results.
You can do it and it will be worth it.
I think if you’re having consistent back pain at all, I would highly recommend the Invertabelt.
Back pain is horrible. It only increases over time and the sooner you take control of it, the better quality of life you will have.
You can spend thousands on Physical Therapy for your back pain, or you can get the Invertabelt.
I’m glad I made the right decision.
I hope this review of the Invertabelt has been helpful. If you have any experience with the product, please leave a comment below.
