Back Pain Belt Uses A Pulley System Combines With Elastic Construction For Moderate Support With Comfort

The back pain belt combines the pulley system of a mechanical brace, with the comfort of an elastic belt to offer moderate levels of support for lumbar spine conditions.

If you do not require solid, strong support of a nylon mechanical belt, and require more stabilization than a typical elastic belt, this is a great option that offers control of support with higher levels, in a belt that can be worn for longer periods. This belt (moderate) provides support between the elastic (mild) and mechanical (strong). It is a great compromise for those who want the advantages of both in a back pain belt that provides good support and comfort.

It is a breathable knit fabric and is washable. It is FDA registered as a class 1 medical device. The focus of support is on the lower lumbar vertebrae. It is unique in its front support along the psoas muscles, and the pulley system provides a high level of user adjustment.

Back pain is very common and there are a plethora of causes and related diseases. In some cases, a back belt can help reduce pain by supporting the core muscles, preventing harmful motions, and there is no evidence that it weakens muscles. If you have ever had a significant muscle strain, you know the muscle is not only painful, but weak.

Injured muscles need support when healing and it is not always possible to avoid activity during the healing period. The added support of a good belt can certainly help through difficult times. We are not talking about a belt you see many workers wear that is half undone most of the time. A back pain belt should be worn for specific purposes. Yes, a cheap one can be worn to remind you about proper posture and safe lifting, however, this is a passive, often ineffective means to achieve those goals.

I do like the idea of psoas support, as this is a key muscle often involved with back pain. With strain of this muscle, a condition known as psoas syndrome can occur. This often is seen in athletes where hip flexion is involved like skaters, hockey, swimmers, and martial arts. Even though the muscle is in the front, it attaches to the lumbar spine and can be quite painful.

Attempts at treating the back often fail and it can be very frustrating and debilitating. Because the psoas is active when flexing the hip (bringing the knee towards the chest), and is a deep muscle, I am not sure that a belt will help with this muscle specifically. I am unaware of any studies that indicate support for this muscle. While stretching and specific muscle therapy are crucial, a belt would provide minimum benefit since the muscle would be involved when rising from a bent posture, however, any support would be nice.

The back pain belt will be useful for conditions like strain of a back muscle, sprain of lumbar spine ligaments, pain from a herniated disc, restriction for extension in spinal stenosis, inflammation from degenerative disc disease, or chronic low back pain, spondylolisthesis and certain elements of scoliosis for postural stability.

I like the belt for its unique design and to have an option for moderate support with advantages of both an elastic and mechanical support belt. The advantages for wearing back support belts warrant looking into this brace as an ideal support belt for back pain.
