One of the most common, and wrongly diagnosed problems associated with lower back pain is the mis alignment of the sacroiliac joint.
Sacroiliac joint mis-alignment is also one of the most common problems giving rise to back pain in pregnant women. If you are female and find that you have all of a sudden been prone to severe back pain there is a strong possibility it is as a result of mis-alignment of the Sacroiliac joint
A Sacroiliac Belt provides support for the sacroiliac joint, thereby relieving stress and instability on the weight bearing structures. The Sacroiliac Belt also helps provide the correct balance of resistance to ensure normal motion. Because of the stability the Sacroiliac Belt gives to the base of your spine, strength is increased throughout your back, hips, and legs, and your chances of injury are lessened considerably during work or play.
Most importantly the Sacroiliac Belt provides relief to the pain caused by the misalignment of the Sacroiliac joint.
Pain Gone Pen
The pain gone pen is a relative recent innovation - it looks just like a pen an pressing the button at the top of the pen causes it to generate an electric pulse which is applied through the skin via the pen tip to bring pain relief. The Mini Pain Gone pen is based on TNS (transcutaneous nerve stimulation) which is similar to TENS machines but doesn't require any power, leads or gels to operate.
It is easy to operate, simply hold the pain gone pen in your hand, place the pen over the pain spot and "click" the button 30-40 times. Each click sends a pulse to activate Endorphins, your body's natural defense against pain. You cannot over dose and mini pain gone pen will even work over light clothing.
