Back Pain

athlete with back painBack pain can be caused by a variety of different issues. Here are a few of the causes of back pain and how the Elite SportZ Band may be able to help provide some relief.

Low Back Pain

Wearing the Elite SportZ Band Z-10 is a popular and effective treatment for the common complaint of low back pain. Many different underlying problems may cause low back pain. The majority the time low back pain does not have a clear cause, but results from non-serious muscle or skeletal issues such as sprains or strains. Imbalance or weakness of the core abdominal and back muscles may lead to low back pain. Other causes include problems with the spine and nerves in the lower back. No matter the cause, wearing the Elite SportZ Band Z-10 provides supportive compression to the lower back and core muscles, often with immediate relief from pain.

Pain from Disc Disorders (herniated disc, slipped disc, prolapsed disc, degenerative disc disease, spinal DJD)

Your spine is a stack of bones, known as vertebra, with cartilage discs in between the bones. These discs allow slight movement between the vertebrae while holding the spine together. Unfortunately, these discs may tear due to injuries or wear out with overuse and age. Damaged or worn out discs are common causes of back pain. The support of the Elite SportZ Band Model Z-10 provides comfort and relief if you suffer from disc disorders such as herniation (also called a “slipped”, prolapsed or ruptured disc) or degeneration.

Pain from Nerve Involvement

Compression of spinal nerves causes low back pain, and the pain may radiate into the buttocks or down the leg. Some people call this a “pinched nerve”. In severe cases, weakness and numbness may occur. If you suffer from sciatica (also known as neuritis, neuralgia or lumbar radiculopathy), caused by herniated discs pressing on lumber nerve roots, the Elite SportZ Band Model Z-10 is for you. Many with back pain from other problems that involve the nerves, such as spondylosis, facet syndrome and spinal lumbar stenosis also get relief by wearing the Elite SportZ Band Model Z-10.

Pain from Misalignment of the Back Bones

Is your spine out of line? You need the Elite SportZ Band Model Z-10. Problems with the alignment of the vertebral bones of the spine may cause back pain. Scoliosis, or curvature of the spine, is usually minor but can be severe. In addition, if the bones in your low back have shifted, also known as spondylolisthesis, the Elite SportZ Band Model Z-10 helps your body relearn how to support your misaligned spine and relieve back pain. In some cases, the enhanced muscular proprioception the Elite SportZ Band Model Z-10 offers may help improve alignment.

Pain from Broken Back Bones

Like any bone, the vertebral bones of your spine may break, also known as fracture, for many different reasons. Trauma and aging are the most common causes of compression fractures. The Elite SportZ Band Model Z-10 provides the perfect balance between support and flexibility for those with healing or chronic vertebral fractures. Spondylolysis is a specific defect of a part of the vertebra. In some cases, the defect seen in spondylolysis runs in the family. Overuse, such as over training in young athletes, may increase the development of symptoms with spondylolysis. The enhanced muscular proprioception the Elite SportZ Band Model Z-10 promotes may help anyone with spondylolysis, by preventing injury or promoting healing.
