The sacroiliac (or SI) joints connect your lower spine and pelvis. They absorb shock between your lower body and upper body, and help stabilize your pelvic area. SI joint dysfunction is a common problem, and can be caused by pregnancy, arthritis, or a tilted sacrum. Symptoms of SI joint dysfunction include lower back, hip, or leg pain.
The Hemmka Health sacroiliac belt supports the pelvic area and stabilizes the sacroiliac (or SI) joint. It reduces lower back, hip and/or leg pain (symptoms of sciatica) that is caused by sacroiliac joint dysfunction. It is designed to fit comfortably over the waist and can be worn during the day and night. It can be used with a wide range of activities, including low-impact exercises.
A recent study compared the progression of LBP (low back pain) symptoms for participants who did not wear a sacroiliac support belt during a week of repeated manual labor lifting tasks to those who wore the belt. The study found that participants who did not wear the belt experienced a gradual increase in their pain and functional impairment during the week of repeated lifting, while those wearing the belt experienced little to no progression in their symptoms.
The Hemmka Health sacroiliac support belt is made from a breathable, comfortable, and stretchy material. Its adjustable VR tabs allow for a customized fit, and it can be worn over the clothing or under. It is also hypoallergenic, and can be worn against the skin. The patented foam is safe and gentle on the skin, and can be worn for long periods of time without causing negative side effects.
