The majority of the back pain is related to spondylosis, or what is generally called degenerative disease. Other contributing factors include poor posture, congenital or developmental back problems and prior history of back injury. In many cases simple back support allows for proper spinal alignment and has been shown to improve or heal these problems.

 

Back supports and braces are made from neoprene and other breathable fabrics for extra comfort. Neoprene provides warmth and support that can help to relieve pain, reduce back muscle spasm and enhance healing. Back supports and braces feature plastic or metal reinforcing side stays which are particularly effective in back pain prevention for people who need support during heavy lifting and handling.

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation is a back pain treatment that uses a low voltage electric current to relieve pain. A TENS unit is a device that transmits electrical pulses to small square electrodes, which then transmit these electrical pulses to the underlying nerves. Some people feel less pain when the electrical pulses are delivered. This could be because stimulating the nerves blocks other pain signals.

 

* When properly used TENS is generally safe, with no negative side effects.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Compression Stockings are designed to help prevent the occurrence of and guard against further progression of venous disorders, including edema, phlebitis and thrombosis. Compression stockings are elastic garments worn around the leg, compressing the limb and exerting pressure against the legs. Compression stockings reduce the diameter of distended veins and cause an increase in venous blood flow velocity and valve effectiveness. Compression therapy helps decrease venous pressure, prevents venous stasis, impairments of venous walls, and relieves heavy and aching legs.
