Pain in the lumbosacral region of your back can be caused by a number of things. Poor posture, trauma, degenerative wearing over time, hormonal changes during pregnancy, or even a long day on your feet can all lead to inflammation of the sacroiliac or facet joints of your lumbar spine. This inflammation can cause pain in your low back, hips, buttocks (coccyx or tailbone), legs, and pelvis in some cases.
This simple belt for your hips can make a world of difference for those dealing with hip and low-back pain. The back support belt should be wrapped around your hips just above the greater trochanter area.
The pressure and support the lumbosacral belt provides to this area supports and stabilizes the joints in your lower back. By doing so, the band for the trochanter region of the body addresses the cause of sacroiliac (SI) joint pain or lumbosacral instability. Discomfort often stems from too much (or too little) motion of these joints. Thus, stabilizing them via a lumbar belt is a great, conservative treatment method for SI joint pain.
The intra-abdominal pressure applied by the SI belt also helps to lessen the strain on your lumbar spine, helping with the treatment of lumbar back pain.
Other modes of treatment for lumbosacral pain often include rest, taking anti-inflammatory pain medications and possibly muscle relaxants, ice and heat therapy, physical or occupational therapy to improve the strength and flexibility of your core and lessen strain on your low back (try these SI joint pain exercises), correcting problematic posture, losing weight (if applicable), and soft tissue massage.
During pregnancy, your pelvic joints and ligaments naturally shift and stretch, often causing severe lower back, hip, and sciatic leg pain. This lower-belly and pelvic girdle belt provides support, easing discomfort while pregnant and alleviating postpartum SI joint pain.
It adjustable, dual-tension straps apply targeted pressure for comfortable hip pain relief and posterior or anterior pelvic tilt correction for proper alignment.
This versatile hip support belt offers superior stabilization from your L5 vertebra to your coccyx bone, helping ease pain resulting from trauma to your tailbone.
Whatever the case may be, non-surgical treatment of an achy, broken tailbone is effective for 90% of people, and many of these remedies can be done from the comfort of your home.
In addition to wearing a supportive sacroiliac joint belt, common best practices for tailbone pain relief include:
Physical therapy or manipulation of the muscles attached to your tailbone (by a doctor) might help if these initial steps fail to relieve your symptoms. Surgery to remove your tailbone is typically a last resort option and rarely necessary.
The Trochanter Brace was specifically designed to support the sacral region of your back. It will stabilize your sacroiliac and lumbosacral joints. This pelvic belt has elastic pulls for quick adjustment of the tension applied to your affected hip or back area. It’s low-profile design also makes it easy to fit over or beneath your clothing. The SI back wrap is composed of a soft pile that is laminated to comfy, flannel lining.
The wrap-around design of this hip stabilizer is easy to apply. Plus, its hook and loop fasteners make applying and adjusting the waist hip support belt a breeze. The SI belt also goes with most ensembles since it’s color is white. The hip brace for joint pain can be hand washed using warm water and mild soap. It should be air dried.
