The Adjustable SI Joint Helix back brace provides compression for those diagnosed with sacroiliitis, sacral or lumbosacral strain.
Please note that there are many causes of back pain. Please seek medical evaluation for prolonged or severe pain.
The SI joint, or sacroiliac joint, is comprised of ligaments that hold the surrounding bones together. Forces applied to these ligaments can cause minor or major symptoms, including severe pain. As with any acute sprain, ice, rest, elevation and compression are advised. The Adjustable SI Joint Helix will provide comfortable support to the involved area and keep the injured tissue warm. The compression and warmth may aid in reducing pain.
There is a large functional overlap of the Adjustable SI Joint Helix and the Adjustable Back Helix. The Adjustable SI Joint Helix is narrower and provides less 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 SI Joint Helix is available in one size fits most but not all. The benefit of compression is lost unless the extra large athlete is lean.
This Back Support is very strong and stays secure while wearing. I really like being able to wear under my clothes discreetly.
I am an Air Force Veteran and have been a nurse for 25 years. Since 2013, I have had 3 back surgeries including lumbar spinal fusion. Physical Therapy provide an SI belt which although bulky, provides support and pain relief. I discovered the Helix SI belt and decided to give it a try.
Pro: Quick on/off, comfortable, easy to wash, low profile under clothing.
Con: 20-30 degrees of compression is NOT enough for significant SI joint instability. Also, company included instruction card for a face mask I neither ordered nor received. (???)
Please let me know if you develop an SI belt providing greater compression with same low profile - I would be a willing guinea pig!
