Studies have shown lower back pain is the leading cause of disability in the world, with experts estimating up to 80 percent of the population will experience a back problem at some time. Causes range from chronic conditions such as arthritis to injury to easily preventable poor posture.
Eliminate posture problems with this biofeedback device that trains users to improve posture by beeping or vibrating when it detects slouching. Designed by a physical therapist, the lightweight trainer is worn like a backpack over clothing and teaches correct spinal alignment. When users slouch, straps tug on the monitor, triggering a warning buzz or vibration. After three weeks of wearing the trainer for three 20-minute sessions a day, users begin to develop the muscle memory needed to employ good posture at all times and gain the unique gifts of pain reduction and better health.
Back pain often radiates down the legs as well, creating a condition called sciatica. This unique back support provides compression throughout the lower back and upper thighs to help ease sciatica and prevent future flare-ups. Unlike a traditional back brace, this support system combines a slim wrap with compression shorts for widespread relief. The wrap can be positioned anywhere along the back or hips to soothe aching areas. The flexible garment moves freely and can even be worn during athletic activity.
This therapeutic device relieves back pain using gentle oscillation to loosen tight muscles and improve range of motion. It simulates the touch of a physical therapist or chiropractor using Continuous Motion Therapy—a technique used by professionals for decades to treat lower back pain. This process helps promote flexibility and injury repair, reducing pain and stiffness. This device would be a welcome unique gift for anyone you know experiencing the discomfort of lower back pain.
Finally, many folks find they can get relief from back pain by sleeping on their sides with a pillow between the knees. Here’s a simple solution that keeps the back in a neutral position for a good night’s sleep and a good feeling in the morning, too.
