The Assist 8 Extra™ Lumbar Support is a streamlined, lightweight lumbosacral support that consists of cotton sections with multi-position fastening straps for easy fitting and removal. The lumbar support has been designed to offer additional support and peace of mind for those suffering from lower back pain, giving you the confidence to stay active.

Back pain can be debilitating and make the simplest of tasks rather complex; like putting your shoes on, getting in the car or simply moving around the home. Following the onset of lower back pain it is important that you stop and rest to minimise the risk of further damage being caused. Pain is simply your body’s way of telling you to stop what you are doing and failure to heed the warnings could result in a more serious injury materialising.

Following the initial injury it is advisable to take it easy for a few days, applying heat to the affected area which can be useful in reducing pain. Should you fail to see signs of improvement then it is advisable to seek professional advice, typically in the form of a physiotherapist who will work on strengthening exercises. Lumbar supports such as the Assist 8 Extra are used outside of your physiotherapy sessions in order to offer additional support when mobile, applying compression to the affected region which can also help with pain management and in tackling inflammation.
