your back is your foundation, it plays a vital role in how your entire body functions so choose the right support to keep you on the move
Your back is your foundation. It plays a huge role in how your entire body functions, stabilising your body during nearly all daily activities. Most of us will suffer with back pain at some point in our lives. The most common type of sudden-onset lower back pain by far is classed as “non-specific” accounting for around 19 in 20 cases.
The lower back (lumbar spine) is a complex structure made up of bones (vertebrae), nerves, discs, ligaments and muscles. It provides us with mobility and strength. Proper functioning of the spine is needed for almost all activities of daily life. It’s called non-specific because it’s usually impossible to pinpoint exactly where the pain is coming from. It’s likely to be a muscle strain, ligament sprain, or a minor problem with a disc or joint. This can often be caused by poor posture during daily activities or prolonged periods of bending or heavy lifting. Pain or ache may radiate into the buttock and/or legs as far as the knee, or in severe cases as far as the foot.
Our Vulkan Classic Back Supports consist of 4 different supports ranging from a back brace, universal and contoured back support as well as reinforced. They come in 3 different support levels depending upon your needs ranging from mild compression and warmth to the lumbar area to providing significant levels of stability and support with the additional stays and compression strap to help limit unwanted twisting and bending movements to allow a quicker recovery without strain.
