  • Acute or chronic pain: by keeping the temperature in the back stable, compression increases blood flow, which reduces chronic pain due to injuries. This therapy will allow the transmission of nutrients throughout the body, even in the area where the person feels the discomfort.
  • Sciatica: the back support allows to reduce the movement in the back, this will prevent less pressure on the nerve root of the lumbar area. When there is less pressure, the nerves regenerate and it is possible that the recovery is more effective because when a nerve is damaged, it is necessary to go to surgery.
  • Lumbalgia: in this injury, the back belt serves to prevent the muscles from completing their job of stabilizing the lumbar area. It facilitates the work of the muscle fibers and makes the load less, remember that all tissue needs to be at rest to avoid future recurrences of the same injury.
  • Herniated disc: when a disc is displaced, the belt contributes to the least possible amount of sudden movements. It helps to keep the disc in place and prevents the disc from deforming, in these cases it is necessary to remove it and place a substitute of biocompatible material.
  • Inguinal hernia: it will protect the membrane that covers the intestinal and urinary area, the back belt covers almost the entire waist and will only leave part of the groin exposed in both men and women. It will avoid the overload of work in the tissues located in that area and the pain of walking will not be so intense.
  • Muscle contractures: if you need to keep active, the lumbar belt will reduce the tension load on the muscles and maintain a temperature according to their recovery. When cold therapy does not work, then the heat makes the fibers relax and you will feel the tension decreasing.
  • Tension in the back: tension is energy accumulated by fatigue, the lumbar braces keep the muscles compressed to reduce excessive involuntary movements. If you are not used to using it, remember not to tighten the lumbar brace too much so that blood continues to flow.

Remember that the vertebrae are separated by the discs, but in reality they are individual pieces with articulated movements between them and that efforts should always be made to keep them together.

When the spine is deviated, it can adopt that posture for a long time and cause more injuries.
  • Reduces tension: if muscles are overstretched, high tension builds up in them, so back supports belt reduce muscle workload. These garments take care of the flexibility and elasticity of the lower back muscles.
  • Accelerates recovery: after a mild or moderate injury, the lumbar support reduces involuntary movements that compromise the damaged structures. They provide the necessary rest for the back; when the back does not relax, there will be no possibility of a better recovery from the injury.
  • Minimizes vibrations: with the back supports, the probability of cramps decreases, which generate vibrations in the fibers and activate them to the point of generating significant wear and tear. Any movement of rotation or inclination will cause the fibers to vibrate with the stretch.
