Whether you are a long-term sufferer of back pain and looking for relief, or you want to avoid developing symptoms of back pain, this is the perfect device for you. Acute back pain is usually a self-limiting problem which, if managed appropriately, should resolve spontaneously. One solution for adequate management is using a back-support device like our back brace to help relieve the symptoms of lower back pain and allow the back to heal. It's designed to help manage lower back problems by supporting the lower lumbar region. There are lots of back braces on the market that purport to do the job, but few are MEDICALLY CERTIFIED to be as effective as the RiptGear Back Brace. This next generation back brace eliminates the potential for stress tears along seams as it is now one piece of Neoprene. The unique double-adjustable feature of this system enables a surprising level of comfort and 'dial-in' support. Other brands are too heavy, are not adjustable or don't sit comfortably around the waist, but the RiptGear Back Support Brace uses the lightweight but strong material Neoprene to wrap around the waist and provide enough flexibility to allow free range of movement whilst firmly giving support. RiptGear Braces enable activity at the gym or in sports like golf, squash or even dancing! Its slim fit makes it discreet under clothing during the day. This back support assists those with scoliosis, sciatica, herniated slipped disc, and osteoporosis. It can also be used as a preventative measure and helps to improve better spine posture and improve spinal alignment in men and women.
