  • I don't know about the belt but physical therapy is very helpful because the exercises target specific problems. I have been going for a certain problem and it has helped tons. GL

  • I used the support belt, it helped quite a bit. Still be careful of your posture and try not to do any heavy lifting.
    I used the belt after I gave birth also, it helped until my muscles recovered their shape (somewhat LOL)
