Support Belts

The use of wide elastic belts that can be tightened to “pull in” abdominal muscles to prevent low back pain are often used by workers.  The support belts may reduce back injury or back pain by keeping the spine stable and in a better posture.

I find its best use is for keeping my back in-line through long periods of sitting, which I do everyday.

Back injuries are the most significant occupational health problem by far, and thousands of companies and workers use supports everyday as part of a complete approach to reducing their severity and frequency. The purpose is simple: provide additional truncal support, limit range of motion associated with injury, and remind the worker that they are lifting.
