Lower back pain... is the second most common reason people seek help from a medical professional.
Osceola, WI (PRWEB) February 13, 2013
At the same time Core Products International released its new product video about its CorFit Lumber support belt, several news articles emerged discussing the growing concern about chronic lower back pain. Like all of the products from Core Products, CorFit is designed for ease of use and to aid in the possible relief from lower back pain, which is the second most common reason people seek help from a medical professional.
As the new video explains, the CorFit Lumbar support system aims to increase intra-abdominal pressure helping to stabilize core muscles and reduce pressure on the low back. For those with chronic lower back pain, the easy to use support system acts as a reminder to use proper lifting techniques and reminds the body to remain in the proper posture.
Several news articles have brought to light the importance of proper lower back support and the increasing numbers of people who suffer lower back pain for various reasons. For example, details from the Global Burden of Disease 2010 Project were recently published on Dynamic Chiropractic’s site explaining that low back pain has been identified as the number one cause of disability worldwide, with neck pain as the number four cause.
The causes of lower back pain can vary widely. One type of activity that can lead to such pain would be whole-body vibration, according to a study at the Stevens Institute of Technology, which happens to drivers of public transportation vehicles. Submitting the spine to ongoing exposure to “elevated frequencies” of vibrations can lead to “deterioration of facet joints,” or considerable back pain, the report says.
Another cause of lower back pain can come from a high body mass index as well, according to a study published in the Jan. 15 issue of Spine. High BMI increases risk of chronic low back pain later High body mass index significantly increases the risk of chronic low back pain later, according to a study published in the Jan. 15 issue of Spine. Researchers from Norway evaluated men and women over a period of up to 69 years, reviewing their weight, height, physical activity and other factors. They found a positive correlation between those with a high BMI and chronic lower back pain.
“We are aware of the large number of people who share this common problem. In fact, it’s a big motivating factor for why we design our products the way we do,” says Philip Mattison of Core Products International. “The CorFit belt can help alleviate the discomfort some of these people feel, and we’re proud of the work we’ve done right here in the U.S.A.”
