‘It Moves With My Body’: Black Veteran Creates FDA-Approved Invention to Help Relieve Back Pain

Good News Notes:

An Atlanta-based veteran has invented a special support belt to help relieve some of the pain afflicting those with acute or chronic back pain.

Glenn Gordon developed the We Gotcha Back support belt five years ago. The FDA-approved product works to improve back, lumbar and total body pain, and can also improve blood circulation.

Gordon’s previous experience in the U.S. Army as a heavy equipment forklift operator contributed to his own long-term back problems.

‘That has taken a toll on my back because I didn’t realize bouncing up and down over all that rough terrain really does hurt your back and into your hips,’ Gordon said.

The 65-year-old South Carolina native recalls beginning to feel discomfort in his late 30s and early 40s.

He says the VA hospital treated him with pain medication and uncomfortable back support devices that left him feeling as if he were wearing a straitjacket when he had them on.”
