Testimonials on the Back-A-line Back Support Belts

From the Experts

aoasmlogo.jpgSports Medicine -In evaluating the product, Back-A-Line was reviewed by a panel of expert physicians. Some of their comments:

“The rigid, firm lumbar support is ideal, and I like the idea that there is less elasticity in the product as opposed to the current ones on the market. I believe that this belt is the best one that I have evaluated to date.”

“The product does do what it is advertised to do. If this product is used properly and at the proper time it can be very beneficial to the user. In fact as it creates or suggests better postural alignment it should call into play balanced muscle activity to activate and restore proper muscle function and thus continue to enhance strength and endurance.”

univofmichiganlogo.jpgErgonomic - A former Ergonomist of the Year, a consistent critic of industrial back belts, writes:
“Your concept of a stiffer form-fitted back belt is appealing, and is much more consistent with my own thinking than many of the soft pliable belts.”





chiropractic-thumbnail.gifChiropractic - International lecturer, Inventor of the “Back Companion” and other health related products, Dr. Guy Doran writes:

“This is the first belt I have seen that provides abdominal and postural support at the same time.Some of my post surgical patients won’t go anywhere without it. The stiff, rounded quality of your lumbar pad maintains the proper lordotic alignment [spinal curve]to protect the lower spine. Promoting good posture alone should be a major contributor to back pain reduction, but the pressure of your pad against the back muscles seems to provide a further alleviating effect. I highly recommend this belt to my patients. I wish you the best. You deserve it for this product.”


sealofacceptanceaoasm2.jpgAOASM-“We particularly like Back-A-Line’s design when compares with the common elastic belts seen so often these days. The risk of muscle atrophy is caused by elastic belts doing the work that the muscles would normally be recruited to do. In contrast, Back-A-Line, with its non-stretch belt, will stimulate the abdominal muscles by providing isometric resistance for them. Similarly, with its lumbar pad to promote lordosis, the Back-A-Line should stimulate the spinal muscles as well.”

“As the #1 category of industrial injury costs, the low back should be given a high priority. Back-A-Line, along with an effective exercise program, helps to significantly reduce that risk.”
