Best Products for Lower Back Pain Relief

Thursday, 11 April 2019

A leading cause of time spent off work, lower back pain is taking over the country. Most of us will experience it at some point in our lives, so it's important to prepare for it and recognise what we can do to make living with back pain a little easier. Thankfully, there are plenty of products out there to help.

Lower Back Pain Is the UK's Biggest Absent From Work Cause
Most people will suffer from back pain at some point in their lives

This short guide lists our Best Products for Lower Back Pain Relief, looking into our wide range of rolls, pillows, insoles and more. If you are suffering from ongoing pain, or if you want to prevent back pain in the future, then this guide is ideal for you.

What Causes Lower Back Pain?

Lower back pain is extremely common, affecting millions of people per year, and it's fast becoming the UK's largest cause of work-related absence. It can be incredibly painful and debilitating, but the most important thing to remember is that it is usually not serious and a solution probably isn't too far away. There are many different causes of back pain, but most are usually related to arthritis, bad posture, pregnancy, past trauma or injury, stress, obesity and poor sleep quality.

What Type of Back Pain Relief Product Should I Buy?

This blog is separated into different sections with specific types of product in each, ranging from pillows, to belts, to supports. We would recommend that you don't go for the first thing that you see, and instead take a minute to think about the root cause of your own pain. Generally, we would follow these guidelines:

  • Pillows and Rolls: Ideal for bad posture, bad sleep posture, aches and pains, arthritis, deep muscle injuries and post-operation sleeping
  • TPN and Electrotherapy Pain Relief: Best suited to ongoing chronic pain, reoccurring injuries, injury recovery and post-operative pain
  • Lower Back Belts: Suitable for those who are on their feet all day, those who are post and during pregnancy and those with mobility problems
  • Lower Back Braces: Best suited to posture correction, sports injuries, use during sports and for preventing injuries during sports
  • Shoe Insoles: Recommended for walkers, sportspeople and those who spend all day on their feet

These guidelines are not set in stone, but it's good to have a vague idea about which product is best for you and your lower back. By choosing the right piece of equipment, you can quickly discover the source of your pain and quickly improve the quality of your day to day life.
