  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Stretch

Contour Belt With Back Pads

Recommended Posts

I bought this belt to strengthen my stomach and back muscles. This unit has many programs in it. It is extremely powerful at the upper settings. The belt, with back unit, cost total $250.00 on the INTERNET.

It seems strange that the pain in my back has been lessened. I was just going for making my back and stomach muscles stronger so that I wouldn't fall over so much. I have L-4 to L-5 and L-5 to S1 injury that has always been painful in many ways. This injury has caused me to have weight in my stomach due to being unable to exercise that area at all.

I was given a tens unit several years ago, but the tens unit is weak compared to this Contour Unit. The front and back units work at the same time. I wasn't expecting to lose a few pounds either, but that comes with the territory.

Stretch, What's the name or manufacture of this belt? I have suffered with back pain for almost 40 years. TENS units are weak for me too. Did you check our ebay for this belt? Thanks. Is the name of this Contour belt??

The Tens unit I have is from frontier medical and is called tri-wave. This belt makes that tens look like nothing.

I found the site again. I bought the belt on some TV offer, but this site has the same one that I have. You don't need the disc with exercises on it, so you don't have to order the disc on the website (this disc has to do with dumbells). If you look at the back attachment it has two oblong tens patches about 5" x 2.75". The patches are close together on both sides of the spine. There are 4 of the patches on the back and four on the front.

They have patches to order, but I found out (others talking) you can moisten the patches with water and they are good as new. The patches keep their stickiness for about 30 times before they start to dry out then just put the water on them.

It starts out with pulses for warm up, and then wham it starts a gripping kind of in a downward motion pulling the muscles together the length of the patch (about 6"). When the motion routine first starts it kind of startling, but after that first startle it is really amazing. I didn't know there was anything like this. You can adjust the intensity up or down. I only run both sides at around 30%. There are 6 major programs in the unit, with about 5 frequences for each program.

The unit has 4 AAA batteries that comes with it. I use rechargable batteries and have only recharged them once in three week.

My Son works for UPS and he is amazed with it also. He is getting one for himself.

I have only been using it for about 3 weeks. My rhomboid muscles have been painful for about 3 years, and I moved the belt up in the upper area of my back. It made the rhomboids hurt for a while, but the pain seems to be going away.

Another strange thing, at the VA yesterday, my oxygen sat was 99. I have always been between 90 and 95 sometimes lower. This could just be a fluke in the VA machines.

If you just want to use the Pads off the belt, it works good also. Here is a list of the locations you can use for the pads. I will keep any progress up to date.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
