The Adjustable Back Helix provides compression to the low back and abdominal muscles, helping to reduce spasm, fatigue and pain.
Please note that there are many causes of back pain. Please seek medical evaluation for prolonged or severe pain.
When a back compression brace is advised, the Adjustable Back Helix is the best product available. Our latest advances in fabric science allow uniform support to the paraspinal muscles, tendons and ligaments in the low back. Gentle support and comfortable compression frequently ease low back pain. The Adjustable Back Helix is recommended for pain reduction due to its ability to keep the muscles and tendons warm.
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.
This Helix can also be used to comfortably support injured abdominal muscles so that athletes can recover with less pain.
There is a functional overlap of the Adjustable SI Joint Helix and the Adjustable Back Helix. The Adjustable Back Helix is wider and provides more support for lumbosacral and paraspinal muscles. The Adjustable SI joint Helix will provide support and warmth and is ideal for injuries involving only the SI joint.
The Adjustable Back Helix comes in two sizes depending on your measurement at your waistline. Small-Medium: 20-36 inches and Medium-Large: 34-52 inches.
It is very important to measure at the waistline.
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.
I ride horses and as you can expect it is not the easiest sport on your lower back. I was experiencing lower right back pain during the canter (lope for you westerners, and it is the third movement of a horse, right below a gallop for everyone else). I was wrapping my back with those simple strechy wraps from Walgreens. It worked ok, but it was too long and always had some annoying rub points. I've only used the Body Helix twice so far cantering and have to say that I did not notice my back at all. As we know the bracing for pain causes us to carry ourselves differently and was probably what was keeping me from getting in tune with the horse.
I don't notice it at all when I'm wearing it. No rub points or feeling of being restricted. The only negative part is that it doesn't breathe at all. So on those hot days, all the sweat runs down the wrap into my pants, the reason for the 4 stars. :( But something I'm willing to put up with for no back pain.
Like any plastic product there is off gassing, and even 2 weeks later it still has a strong smell to it. Even after the first wash. Other than that, thanks Body Helix for a great product. It is allowing me to enjoy my sport again.
I am a competitive tennis player and have several Body Helix products. I think they are the best on the market. Super comfortable, easy to wash, and they last! They are well made and worth the price. Great products from a great company!
All our compression products have two options available: Max Compression and Ultra Light. What’s the difference?
