Adjustable Strap Ensures Perfect Fit


Product Uses

When a back compression wrap is advised, our Adjustable Back Helix is the most comfortable product available.  The adjustable strap ensures you can get the perfect fit, adjusting the compression level throughout the day if needed.  And, the comfort of the material means you can wear it all day and into the evening if you choose and that you can easily wear it during exercise without feeling like it’s bulky.

This Helix provides uniform support and warmth, helping to ease low back pain from an injury to your paraspinal muscles, tendons, and ligaments.  It is a must for you if you want to Move Through It, exercising or even competing while you are injured.

If you have muscle spasms related to arthritis, this Helix can help to reduce your pain from the muscle spasms by keeping the affected muscles warm and supported.

The Adjustable Back Helix can also be used to comfortably support strained abdominal muscles, allowing you to recover with less pain.

The width of the Adjustable Back Helix ensures that it will cover your lumbar spine (low back) and also, depending on your height, areas of your sacrum (tailbone) and the lower portions of your thoracic spine (chest).

Please note that there are many causes of back pain.  Please see medical evaluation for prolonged or severe pain.

Arthritis of the spine is a problem of the spine joints.  Our product will not help pain solely related to arthritis, but if there is associated muscle spasm the compression and warmth may aid in reducing pain.


What is the difference in styles?

The Adjustable Back Helix is wider and provides more support for the lumbosacral and lower thoracic muscles, tendons, and ligaments. 

The Adjustable SI Joint Helix provides warmth and support for a narrower region and is ideal for injuries involving the Sacroiliac (SI) Joint.  It is also sometimes preferred by those who are short-waisted and during the warmer months in the hotter climes.


Proper fit is important

Please measure the circumference of your waistline for an optimal fit.  Please do not measure your hips.  Please do not measure your ribcage. 


Which size should I order if I am in between sizes? 

In general, leaner athletes prefer the smaller size.  All others prefer the larger size.

My daughter is a gymnast and often has sore, tired back. This brace has helped to give her a little extra support as well as keep her back muscles warm between events.

Amazing Back Brace! Have use mine for years!

Purchased this through Sara. I love to play tennis, walk, and occasionally jog. Have used this much more often in the several months due to RA. Makes playing tennis a lot less painful. (Ahh :) It can be worn at home, on the courts or when going for a walk or jog. I have several Body Helix Products. The only drawback to the full back brace is that it does get hot during warmer months. However, you’d be hard pressed not to have that issue with any back compression product. I may try the slimmer one since I’m using it more often. It works great! I’ve recommended to friends who also love it. If concerned about the price; please note: This is a high quality product that will last years. I’ve had mine for at least three years. I’ve never had a store bought product last that long. Also, most of those do not as work well after washing. Mine has been washed several times. It can also be be put in the dryer. However, I allow mine to air dry. They have a great return/refund policy so when your product arrives, be sure to read how to return, if needed, to expedite the process. They can specialize products to your particular size if you fall outside the sizing recommendations. Great company! Made in Greensboro NC. Product shown is approximately 3+ years old. Still works great! Has a wrinkle that will come out - it’s been in the bottom of my suitcase bc I was out of town for the past 3-4 weeks and just returned home.


All our compression products have two options available: Max Compression and Ultra Light. What’s the difference?


MAX Compression is what we are known for. It comes in a variety of colors and is slightly thicker at 3.0mm in thickness. MAX excels in preventive support and active injury management alike.


Ultra-Light Compression is slightly thinner at 2.0mm in thickness making it perfect for preventative support. Ultra-Light only comes in the marine blue.

Stretch and Elasticity

We refer to this as Form Fit Technology. Body Helix believes the highest quality compression products can only be made with the highest quality material. We use a high-tech material that has more stretch and more elasticity than any other compression products on the market today. It stretches far more than the human body, allowing for full range of motion of any joint on which it is placed. Just as important, it also has far superior elasticity, allowing it to rebound as fast the joint or muscle and ensuring that it will always remain in contact with your body as you move, no matter how quickly and explosively.

Uniform medical-grade compression

Body Helix believes in form and function. Not only must our products look good, they must provide the most effective level of uniform compression for injury prevention and injury management, because we are committed to the science of keeping athletes active and helping them to Move Through It. We offer two levels of medical-grade compression. Our Max Weight firm medical grade 1 compression at 20-30mmHg and our Ultra-Light 2.0 moderate medical-grade 1 compression at 15-20mmHg. The incredible stretch and elasticity of our high-tech material coupled with our moisture activated adherence means that our compression sleeves do not need straps to keep them in place and can provide you with a uniform compression throughout.

Won't slide down

We refer to this as Moisture Activated Adherence. Body Helix believes that the highest quality compression products can only be made using the highest quality material. In the world of compression gear, any movement of the product means distraction from what is most important - focus and performance. Our proprietary material “locks” to your skin with moisture (sweat) ensuring that it will not slip, it will not slide down, it will not move other than to stretch with your body. You will realize just how “locked” it is the first time you wear it, when you need to take it off by folding it down and then easing it off of your body. So, make sure you have it where you want it before you start to sweat! And make sure you fold it down before removing it!

Machine Wash and Dry

Body Helix believes that the highest quality compression products can only be made using the highest quality material. Our high tech material likes to be clean, just like you. The closed cell synthetic rubber does not absorb any odors or bacteria, but the outside material can. So, please wash it frequently - every time you wear it if possible. You can wear it right into the shower and wash it with soap and water, wash it in the sink with soap and water, or put it in the washing machine. And, if you are wearing it regularly, make sure you put it in the dryer on medium heat at least once a week, more if you would like. The more you wash it, the longer it will last. So, please wash it regularly.
