Product DescriptionWhen a back compression wrap is advised, our adjustable back wrap for lower back pain is the most comfortable product available. The adjustable strap ensures you get the perfect fit, adjusting the compression level throughout the day if needed. And, the comfort of the material means you can wear it all day and into the evening if you choose and that you can easily wear it during exercise without feeling like it’s bulky.
This back brace provides uniform support and warmth, helping to ease low back pain from an injury to your paraspinal muscles, tendons, and ligaments. It is a must for you if you want to Move Through It, exercising or even competing while you are injured.
If you have muscle spasms related to arthritis, our adjustable back support can help to reduce your pain from the muscle spasms by keeping the affected muscles warm and supported.
The Adjustable Back wrap for lower back pain can also be used to comfortably support strained abdominal muscles, allowing you to recover with less pain.
The width of the back brace ensures that it will cover your lumbar spine (low back) and also, depending on your height, areas of your sacrum (tailbone) and the lower portions of your thoracic spine (chest).
Please note that there are many causes of lower back pain. Please see medical evaluation for prolonged or severe pain.
Arthritis of the spine is a problem of the spine joints. Our product will not help pain solely related to arthritis, but if there is associated muscle spasm the compression and warmth may aid in reducing pain.
What is the difference in styles?The Adjustable Back wrap is wider and provides more support for the lumbosacral and lower thoracic muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
The Adjustable SI Joint Helix provides warmth and support for a narrower region and is ideal for injuries involving the Sacroiliac (SI) Joint. It is also sometimes preferred by those who are short-waisted and during the warmer months in the hotter climes.
Proper fit is important
Please see sizing chart in product pics above
Please measure the circumference of your waistline for an optimal fit. Do not measure your hips. Do not measure your ribcage.
Please note that the adjustable strap can be cut once you have found your optimal placement if you want to eliminate excess fabric. The strap will not fray after you cut it. The product cannot be returned once the straps have been altered.
I have purchased and used many of the compression sleeves. I have seen a benefit from each and every one. I wear an arm sleeve when I play golf due to a partially torn biceps tendon. No more pist round pain. As I have aged, with all the little aches and pain my various helix sleeves have helped keep the pain to a minimum.
My daughter is a gymnast and often has sore, tired back. This brace has helped to give her a little extra support as well as keep her back muscles warm between events.
I ordered my second body helix and it came the wrong size. I emailed questioning what can be done and have heard nothing.
You may mail the sleeve back for an exchange. Mail it to:

Purchased this through Sara. I love to play tennis, walk, and occasionally jog. Have used this much more often in the several months due to RA. Makes playing tennis a lot less painful. (Ahh :) It can be worn at home, on the courts or when going for a walk or jog. I have several Body Helix Products. The only drawback to the full back brace is that it does get hot during warmer months. However, you’d be hard pressed not to have that issue with any back compression product. I may try the slimmer one since I’m using it more often. It works great! I’ve recommended to friends who also love it. If concerned about the price; please note: This is a high quality product that will last years. I’ve had mine for at least three years. I’ve never had a store bought product last that long. Also, most of those do not as work well after washing. Mine has been washed several times. It can also be be put in the dryer. However, I allow mine to air dry. They have a great return/refund policy so when your product arrives, be sure to read how to return, if needed, to expedite the process. They can specialize products to your particular size if you fall outside the sizing recommendations. Great company! Made in Greensboro NC. Product shown is approximately 3+ years old. Still works great! Has a wrinkle that will come out - it’s been in the bottom of my suitcase bc I was out of town for the past 3-4 weeks and just returned home.
I ride horses and as you can expect it is not the easiest sport on your lower back. I was experiencing lower right back pain during the canter (lope for you westerners, and it is the third movement of a horse, right below a gallop for everyone else). I was wrapping my back with those simple strechy wraps from Walgreens. It worked ok, but it was too long and always had some annoying rub points. I've only used the Body Helix twice so far cantering and have to say that I did not notice my back at all. As we know the bracing for pain causes us to carry ourselves differently and was probably what was keeping me from getting in tune with the horse.
I don't notice it at all when I'm wearing it. No rub points or feeling of being restricted. The only negative part is that it doesn't breathe at all. So on those hot days, all the sweat runs down the wrap into my pants, the reason for the 4 stars. :( But something I'm willing to put up with for no back pain.
Like any plastic product there is off gassing, and even 2 weeks later it still has a strong smell to it. Even after the first wash. Other than that, thanks Body Helix for a great product. It is allowing me to enjoy my sport again.
