Take care of your back pain

Long days in front of the computer, bad posture, muscle weaknesses or heavy lifting are all common possible causes of back pain. Back pain is very common and something most people have experienced sometime during their lives, and luckily, in most cases it only persists for a few days or weeks. 


Of the most common types of back related problems

This article will cover the two most common types of back related problems: diffuse back pain and lower back pain. We’ll look deeper into the symptoms, possible causes and treatments, because however painful it might be there are things you can do to help prevent and relieve the pain and its symptoms. 


This pain is mostly localized to the lower back and adjacent areas. Symptoms may persist for a few days to weeks, alternating with pain-free periods. 


Lower back pain is typically recognized by pain in the lumbar region, although it can be felt anywhere along the spine – from the neck down to the hips. It often has a rapid onset, possibly radiating into the buttocks.

A strong back is both well controlled in stability and adjustable in flexibility at the same time in order to create the best foundation for all training. The right support for your back helps with improving your performance and prevents injuries. Rehband back supports provide both stability and pain relief if you are already affected by back-related problems such as back insufficiency, lumbago, disc rupture, sciatica or hypermobility. We provide a variety of back supports, offering a range from lighter back supports (QD Back Support 5mm) to more rigid supports (UD X-Stable Back Support) or special back supports for weightlifting and powerlifting (X-RX Back Support).

If you have questions about our products you can reach out to the Rehband customer service. If you have pain and it doesn't start to improve within a few weeks or stops you doing your day-to-day activities you may want to consider approaching a physiotherapist or specialist doctor to examine your back and discuss possible support and treatment options.
