The Adjustable Back Helix compression wrap provides warmth and support for low back spasms, fatigue, and myofascial low back pain and can also help with the management of injuries to the abdominal muscles.
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.
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.
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.
I ordered my second body helix and it came the wrong size. I emailed questioning what can be done and have heard nothing.

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?
