A lumbar support belt is a rigid device that is used to support and align, prevent and correct deformities, and protects the injured area from further injury. It limits the low back range of motion which increases healing and prevents myospasms and pain. It also increases the warmth and blood circulation to the lumbar spine.
The lumbar posture pump has a dual inflation mechanism that gradually lifts and separates the joints to promote joint and disc hydration and lubricaition. The built-in rocking mechanism also allows you to exercise your abdominal muscles while shaping and stretching your low back.
Ultrasonic waves or sound waves of a high frequency that is not audible to the human ear are produced by means of mechanical vibration in the metal treatment head of the ultrasound machine. The treatment head is then moved over the surface of the skin in the region of the injury transmitting the energy into the tissues. Pain cream can be coupled with this unit to provide deep relief.
A lumbar cushion supports your low back throughout the day and allows for proper ergonomics while working. It allows your low back to maintain proper curvature which prevents early degeneration and disc issures.
