Subject to constant physical stresses, our backs have to work 1,500 times per day on average during our various movements.
This complex joint system consists of a set of very different anatomical structures, including vertebrae, discs, muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves and damage to one or more of these components can cause low back pain.
Lumbar support belts provide relative rest for the lumbar spine. Their technical characteristics determine the degree of immobilisation.
The action principle of lumbar belts is based on 3 key mechanisms:
An Increase in Intra Abdominal Pressure: By rebalancing the loads on the intervertebral discs, they provide immediate relief for the lumbar zone.
Posture Correction: By limiting the range of motion, a belt encourages patients to avoid extreme movements that may be harmful to their backs.
Proprioceptive Stimulation: By improving patients’ awareness of the position of their lumbar spine and pelvis, the belt promotes the adoption of analgesic postures and a sensation of vertebral stability.
