Why wear this back brace?
Wearing this back support, with its boning at the back and wide straps, may be recommended if you have lower back pain/lumbago, or if you are unsure about how your back will cope when getting back into sport (basketball, football, handball, tennis, running, trail running, gymnastics, judo). It is easy to put on and adjust, with a shape designed to fit your back and keep you comfy. The tightening straps offer additional support.
What is the difference between lower back pain and lumbago?
Lower back pain and lumbago are actually the same thing: back pain in the lumbar region. This pain can be caused by different things, from fractures to deformities and slipped discs. The pain will only disappear if the cause is treated. Wearing a back brace can help reduce pain thanks to its heating action, compression, and the restricted movement.
Choosing your lumbar brace size
Measure your waist size, to 5 cm above the hips. Then match the measurement taken with the following size chart:
Size 1: 65 - 85 cm
Size 2: 85 - 110 cm
Size 3: 110 - 140 cm
