Back pain relief with the Nuova Health Lumbar Back Support
Sometimes it can be a daily struggle and a challenge living with back pain however we have developed a new back support designed for superior and lasting comfort and rehabilitation of the afflicted area.
This back support is a specialist orthotic device designed for relief from lower back pain, to improve posture and to aid rehabilitation of the lower back during physiotherapy or after surgery. The support works by applying fairly firm and even compression around the lower back providing much needed comfort and support. By holding your posture the support can also act as an injury prevention and treatment device.
Promotes better blood circulation and healing
Good blood circulation is an important part of the rehabilitation process of any injury and the lower back is no exception. The Nuova Health back support increases blood circulation through compression and magnetic therapy with strategically placed infrared magnets throughout the support. The magnetic field that the support creates directs blood to the tissue surrounding the lower back, this is due to iron in the blood being attracted to the magnets. Increased circulation to the lower back provides warmth, therapeutic relief from pain, and healing.
Please consult your doctor first if you have a pacemaker fitted as the magnets may interfere with the pacemaker.
Posture correction with the back support.
By engaging your core muscles the lower back support helps to promote good posture. Good posture makes you look more confident, appear taller and also reduces slouching and helps to reduce disc degeneration and damage to the facet joint in the spine.
Made from the best materials
The NuovaHealth back support is made of high quality medical grade neoprene, providing the best level of strength, durability, comfort and protection. Neoprene is a special material that is lightweight and breathable providing great comfort whilst also being strong enough to withstand daily wear and tear.
When can I use the back support?
This back support can be used throughout the day or as recommended by your physiotherapist. We recommend taking breaks from wearing it so your body doesn’t become reliant on the support as this can cause muscular imbalance.
The back support can also be used during heavy lifting and handling. We recommend that you tighten the belt whilst engaged in these activities in order to help engage your core muscles more and improve lifting ability.
Can also be worn during sports.
Injury Prevention with the NuovaHealth Lower Back Support
Not only can our back support help in the treatment of lower back injuries but it can also prevent them from occurring in the first place!
If you lift heavy objects regularly it can be useful to wear a lower back support to prevent injury, prevention occurs due to the correction of posture and also through raising neuro-muscular awareness. Neuro-muscular awareness is all about mind-muscle connection, better awareness of your muscles ensures correct lifting technique and optimum posture minimising the risk of injury. The compression that the belt provides also helps you to engage your core more in the lifts, by squeezing your core you are much stronger in the lift and there is less risk of you relying too much on the lower back to do the heavy lifting for you.
The Nuova Health lower back support helps to treat the following conditions*:
* Please always consult your doctor or physiotherapist first before using your lower back support to help treat the following conditions. We accept no responsibility for any injury caused by the use of our product.
Caused by either irritation or pressure on the sciatic nerve. Pain or a tingling sensation is symptomatic of sciatica; this pain usually radiates from the lower back and travels down the legs to the feet.
Slipped disc is caused when the disc that sits between the bones of the spine becomes damaged and then starts to press on the nerves. Slipped discs are very similar in symptoms and causation as sciatica although sciatica is specific to the sciatic nerve.
The facet joint stabilizes the spine and helps to excessive movement of the spine that can result in injury. When these joints become damaged through the normal ageing process, injury or repetitive strain the joint can become painful; Facet syndrome is pain that can develop anywhere along the spine due to this damage. This spinal injury can result in lower back pain.
Lumbar spinal stenosis
Spinal nerve roots are choked causing symptoms of sciatica.
Degenerative disc disease
Degeneration of the discs causing permanent pain in the lower back. In the long term can lead to facet syndrome and other problems if not treated.
Long term measures have to be taken for all back injuries as they can progress and get worse with time, there are no instant cures, wearing a back support is just one part of a wider rehabilitation plan.
