Men’s Lower Back Support for Heavy Lifting
BraceAbility’s Men’s Lower Back Support Belt is a unique back brace specifically designed to support the lower back muscles while one is lifting heavy objects. The lower back belt provides a variety of benefits to individuals who participate in heavy lifting or have a job that requires lifting heavy objects. The back belt for lifting helps prevent common injuries and strains to the lower back that often occur during heavy lifts. Wearing a lower back belt while performing heavy lifts can lessen the strain on one’s back, ease existing pain, prevent damage, and encourage proper lifting techniques.
Benefits of the Heavy Lifting Belt
The lower back belt can potentially increase performance, allowing individuals who lift competitively to carry more weight while also avoiding injury. Studies have found that wearing a compression back belt while inhaling before lifting heavy objects reduces spine loading, which can prevent further injury and pain of the back both short term and long term. Compressing the lower back during heavy lifts allows for more stability in your abdomen and lower back. This increase in stability will allow your lower back to carry more weight and prevent injury to this area as well. Most industrial jobs that include heavy lifting require employees to wear a heavy lifting belt. This is because lifting objects improperly that are too heavy can be extremely damaging to the spine and lower back. The lower back belt reduces the stress and pressure put on the lower back and spine while performing heavy lifts to avoid these damages.
Lower Back Belt for Heavy Lifting Back Pain
One of the main causes of lower back pain is sprains and strains to the low back. This accounts for most acute back pain individuals experience in their lifetime. Sprains and strains are often caused by overstretching or tearing ligaments, which often occur from lifting an object improperly or something too heavy. Wearing a back belt for lifting can ease pain for low back sprains and strains while also avoiding further tearing and injury to the ligaments. This men’s back belt can also be used for preventative purposes while one performs heavy lifts. It’s important to note that individuals should not wear the back belt for lifting around the clock. Doing so can cause the muscles of the back to weaken and lose their strength and flexible, leaving one more prone to injury in the future.
