Back Supports & Lumbar Supports

Back Supports & Lumbar Supports

Almost all of us will suffer from back pain at some point in our life; usually it is not caused by a serious condition. It may arise from poor posture, lifting a heavy item or twisting the back. The back pain may be due to strain in the muscles surrounding the spine. Treatment options include rest, physiotherapy (to work on strengthening the muscles in the back) and the use of back supports and lumbar supports offer an additional level of protection outside of your physiotherapy sessions.

When it comes to back supports the list can be endless, which is why we’ve tried to make it simple by allowing you to refine your results by a number of key criteria, including the injury you wish to manage, so that you can select the right product. If you can’t find what you’re looking for then you can get in touch with us on webchat or by picking up the phone.

Causes of back pain

Injury to the back can also affect the nerves in the spinal canal causing pain not only in the back but also in the lower limbs. Sciatica and spinal stenosis are conditions caused by changes in the spine with symptoms affecting the thighs and buttocks.

Incorrect lifting techniques and poor manual handling is one of the main causes of back pain in the workplace resulting in time off. In 2011/12 over 27 million days were lost following a work related injury, of which back injuries were one of the most common.

What does a back support offer?

Back supports and lumbar supports offer compressive and proprioceptive benefits which can keep you mobile for longer and make you more aware of your movements and the range of motion you are able to attain. Compression works to manage inflammation which in turn can offer pain relieving qualities. They can also be used to help with conditions relating to the nervous system such as sciatica.
