Why Use a Back Belt?
Back belts are designed to reduce the load on the spine and to encourage a healthy and straight posture. Lumbar injuries can be caused by a range of things, including sports, day to day living or a sudden blow to the spine. These injuries result in symptoms such as loss of mobility and back pain.
How Does the Thuasne Spinal Back Brace Help the Lumbar Joint?
The Thuasne belt works by increasing your intra-abdominal pressure, which helps to correctly align and support your intervertebral discs. These discs are essential for range of motion, stability, and shock absorption for the spine. The lumbar belt offers light immobilisation of the lumbar area, preventing extreme movements which might cause further damage to your spine.
How Do I Fit the Back Brace?
Ask your healthcare professional to shape the stays to fit the curvature of your back and ensure you get the right support for your body. The brace features finger loops for easy fitting and a logo to indicate which is the right size up.
How Comfortable Is the Back Brace?
The lightweight fabric and seamless design of the back brace ensures the maximum level of comfort. The belt can be easily adjusted to establish the right level of compression for your requirements, and the material at the hips and ribs have been designed with angles to result in optimum comfort. The lumbar belt helps to keep the lumbar joint warm, which improves circulation and recovery as well as easing discomfort.
What Is the Function of the Additional Strap?
The LombaSkin Back Brace features an additional strap which fastens over the standard belt straps. This provides improved compression and support for your spine, and also allows for hassle-free adjustments to the belt over the course of the day.
