Why Wear an Industrial Lifting Belt/Back Brace?
Using a low-back belt to reduce lumbar pain is not a new concept. Such products were originally used during medical rehab, but back belts in the workforce and weight lifting supports have since gained in popularity, both for the added support they provide when lifting, bending, etc. and also for their ability to address such pain.
Many turn to a back support for work as such products can reduce stress on the spine, increase intra-abdominal pressure (thereby countering forces on the spine), reduce loads when lifting and stiffen the spine. The crisscross straps of this back belt increase its supportive properties and help keep it in place.
Along those same lines, know that wearing a back brace/lifting belt should not inflate your self confidence or sense of security when lifting. While wearing industrial back brace can help treat and prevent low-back pain, you can still sustain an injury while wearing it—especially if you lift more than you should.
In addition, you should not wear an industrial back support belt around the clock. Doing so can cause the muscles of the back to lose strength and flexibility, leaving you more prone to injury.
