The Serola Sacroiliac Belt
Wednesday, 15 January 2014 | Paul
During pregnancy, between 50 – 80% of women experience some kind of pelvic/back pain relating to the pregnancy. It is most common after the sixth month and increases with the advancing pregnancy.
What Does The Serola Sacroiliac Belt Do Exactly?
The Serola Belt works by compressing the sacroiliac joints, relieving stress and instability in these weight bearing structures. The Serola Belt is positioned in the natural indentation around the hips and supports the base of the spine, providing the correct balance of resilience and resistance.
Does It Work?
Several studies have been conducted to investigate the effects of wearing a sacroiliac belt, such as the Serola Belt, during pregnancy and all show real benefits can be achieved.
Since during pregnancy all the pelvic joints loosen, a Serola Sacroiliac Belt will work by significantly reducing the mobility of these joints, relieving strain on the weight bearing pelvic structures and can therefore help significantly reduce associated pain.
One study showed that up to 70% of women experiencing pelvic pain had immediate relief when wearing the sacroiliac belt.
Wearing a sacroiliac belt such as the Serola Belt during pregnancy can not only help prevent pain, but can also keep people working for longer. Lower back and pelvic pain accounts for the majority of sick leave within pregnant women. In the study of four hundred and seven women, sick leave frequency was reduced in the group affected by posterior pelvic and back pain.
With its proven effectiveness, it is safe to say that wearing a Serola Sacroiliac Belt during pregnancy is likely help improve overall comfort.
