Ortho Medical Ltd Established in 2009
Ortho Medical Exclusive Distributor in the UK for Disk Dr Products
Disk Dr. Waist WG30
The founder of Ortho Medical Ltd has suffered back pain since 1999. By the summer of 2008, he was unable to get out of bed and was diagnosed with herniated discs (MRI August of 2008 L5-S1 9mm, L4-L5 5mm). Having tried different treatments, none of which effective, he was shocked when he was told surgery was the only answer. Lying in a bed for two months unable to get up and waiting for spine surgery, accidentally found Disk Dr. belt on the internet. He wasn't optimistic, having tried 3 different types of belts in the past. However, the Disk Dr. clinical results were so impressive, he decided to try it for himself.
Updated: March of 2009
Today, (March of 2009) he still wears his Disk Dr. belt. It has not only improved his condition, he is now also able to travel overseas on business trips. Because the Disk Dr. Waist WG30 belt made such a significant difference to his life, he wanted to share this unique, patented, scientifically proven product with other back pain sufferers. In 2009, the company Ortho Medical (ex Back Pain Fix) was established to supply the range of Disk Dr. products to the public and medical practitioners.
