The lowest part of your spine, is called the sacral spine. It sits at the very base of your back, in between the hips and pelvis. Lower back pain is often caused by issues in this part of the spine, leading to issues like sciatica, disc pain and more. You can take care of the sacrum with a sacroiliac brace, and it's also one of the best ways to relieve the problem, as it unloads and protects the joint.
Bauerfeind have perfected the active support, meaning that wearing a back brace for lower back pain is comfortable and simple, aiding and correcting your posture whether you're seated, standing or even lying down.
Sacroiliac issues affect a lot of different people from varied parts of life, including truck drivers, office workers, women during and after pregnancy, athletes in contact sports as well as those injured in accidents. Bauerfeind's range of clinically proven sacral supports work to alleviate pain and relieve pressure on the sacral spine so you can get on with life.
While cheaper and less effective braces can cause an issue known as reliance (where the muscles become weaker and rely on the brace), Bauerfeind have perfected the blend of stability and movement. By restricting or immobilising specific parts of the ankle that need it, and freeing up the rest, you can continue to exercise, building and maintaining strength in the joint.
Virtually all our medical supports are designed to be worn for any length of time, whether it's half an hour after exercise to recover the muscle, or first thing in the morning to last thing at night.
Virtually all of our products can be machine washed on a cold gentle cycle and air dried out of direct sunlight. Putting them on and taking them off carefully is recommended, and for specific product care, refer to the product manual or contact our friendly staff.
All supports and insoles come with a 12 month warranty, and compression stockings with a 3 month warranty for any manufacturers faults. At any point if you've got issues with the product or aren't sure if something is wrong, just contact our helpful staff.
Bauerfeind have an incredibly extensive sizing system for our products based off of hundreds of thousands of patient measurements. The perfect anatomic fit system we use means that the supports are designed to fit your body, not the other way around. (We also offer custom options for a range of our products for those rare few who still can't fit into our sizing range).
