Pro-Tec Sacroilliac Back Belt

A common cause of back pain is related to Sacroiliac Joint Syndrome or Dis function.

The sacroiliac joint is one of the largest joints in the body, forming a space between the sacrum, or base of the spine, and the ileum or wing of the pelvis. The sacroiliac joint is crossed by very strong ligaments which hold the joint together, and is further stabilized by the front of the pelvis.

For most of us, the sacroiliac joint moves only to a small degree, but when this joint moves into an unusual position, and the bones on either side of the joint are not aligned, inflammation and pain can occur, particularly around the portion where the sciatic nerve runs directly in front of the joint. Even when the bones are realigned by a medical professional, the ligaments may not be strong enough to hold the joint in place, which is why an external pelvic support belt can be really beneficial during this re-healing process.

How It Works

The Sacroiliac (S.I.) Back Belt provides stabilization to the hips and sacrum, reducing strain to the lower back.

Design Theory

The SI Back Belt is wrapped lower, around the hips, than most back supports. The compression pad combines with a second set of exterior straps to apply effective compression on the sacrum. A non slip gel helps keep the SI Belt in place. It is also contoured to offer an extremely comfortable fit.
