Key product: Bauerfeind Sacroloc Back Support
Back pain is extremely common and is likely to affect most people at some point in their lives. Back injuries can be caused by a number of activities, particularly heavy lifting which can lead to long term damage to the back. Sitting incorrectly, poor posture and bending can also cause back pain and injury. In working environments such as warehouses and factories the importance of lifting items correctly is regularly emphasised. However it is day to day tasks such as carrying shopping or lifting children where the care needs to be taken.
For lower back pain, lumbar pain and sciatica the Serola Sacroiliac Back Support Belt is one the most highly rated sacroiliac supports available. The Serola Back Support works by compressing and supporting the sacroiliac joints and thus relieving stress and instability. The Serola Belt can also be used as a prophylactic back support belt as it provides support to the base of the spine, minimising the risk of injury. The Bauerfeind Sacro Loc Back Support has also been designed to relieve the stress on the pelvic and sacroiliac joints. Bauerfeind are widely regarded as one of the leading manufacturers of sport supports and braces and provide excellent support, comfort and breathability.
