  • Vented and breathable side panels
  • For weak backs and minor strains
  • Suitable for tendonitis and arthritis

Back pain can be debilitating, especially if you're an athlete. The McDavid Universal Back Support features a neoprene back panel for warmth and comfort, and six stays for extra support. This allows it to support weak and injured backs, while increasing range of motion and reducing pain.

Who Can Make Gains with the McDavid Universal Back Support?

The most popular in McDavid's line of back supports, the McDavid Universal Back Support features fully adjustable vented and breathable side panels. This feature, along with the neoprene back panel and supportive stays, allows the brace to support the back and increase range of motion without causing the wearer to feel hot or uncomfortable. This makes it ideal for athletes looking to support their back while taking part in intense exercise.

Protection Level III 

This robust support is rated at protection level III, a maximum level of protection designed for:

  • Weak backs, as well as minor strains or pulls of the back or abdomen muscles
  • Tendonitis, arthritis and non-specific back pain
  • Pain relief and promotion of healing

The above is a guide only, not a substitute for medical care. Always consult a doctor for injury diagnosis and treatment.
