The Adjustable SI (Sacroiliac) Joint Helix provides comfortable support to your SI Joint and to the tendons and muscles surrounding your SI joint. The SI joint is comprised of ligaments that hold the bones of the back (sacrum) and the hip (iliac) together. Forces applied to these ligaments from trauma or during exercise can cause minor or major symptoms, including severe pain and inflammation. The compression and warmth of our Helix may aid in reducing the pain and inflammation associated with damage to the muscles, tendons, and ligaments around your SI joint.
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 SI (Sacroiliac) 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.
The Adjustable Back Helix is wider and provides more support for the lumbosacral and lower thoracic muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
The SI (Sacroiliac) Joint Helix is 31 inches long and is a “one size fits most (but not all)”. The benefits of the compression are lost if you stretch the material past its optimal elasticity. If your hips are over 40 inches in circumference, the Adjustable Back Helix will most likely be a better fit.
Very convenient, light weight and does not hinder movement. Reduces pain.
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!
All our compression products have two options available: Max Compression and Ultra Light. What’s the difference?
