Push Care Back Brace £99.99
The Push Care Back Brace reduces pain in the lower area of the back through even distribution of pressure. A comfortable pad on the lower back area with four pressure points ensures a relieving pressure sensation. The pad is removable and the pressure can be easily adjusted to suit individual preferences.
The shape and material make the brace comfortable to wear when performing activities while standing or sitting, at home or at work.
The anatomical fit makes it suitable for both men and women and guarantees good position retention. A good body fit ensures that the brace is not noticeable when worn under clothes.
There are no known disorders where the brace cannot or should not be worn. In the case of poor blood circulation in the limbs, a brace may cause hyperaemia. Avoid applying the brace too tightly in the beginning.
Pain is always a sign of warning. If the pain persists or the complaint deteriorates, it is advisable to consult your doctor or therapist.

An abdominal strain occurs when the rectus abdominus is torn or ruptured. The abdominal muscles allow movement, assist with breathing, and provide support to the spine. They consist of the internal and external obliques, rectus abdominus, and the transversus abdominus. The transversus abdominus muscle is triangular and flat, and the rectus abdominus is long and flat. If the abdominal muscles become weak or tight, they can cause poor posture and back pain.
There are three types of abdominal muscle strain; grade 1, grade 2 and grade 3.
A grade 1 strain occurs when a few muscle fibres are torn;
a grade 2 strain occurs when the tears to the muscle fibres are more extensive;
and a grade 3 strain occurs when there is a complete rupture of the muscle
Any sport which involves a fast movement or sudden change in direction can cause abdominal muscle strain. Gymnasts, weight lifters, rowers, throwers are particularly susceptible to abdominal strain.
