Tip of the Week

According to the Department of Labor stats, in 2003 there were 345, 294 on-the-job back injuries. That's a whole world of pain that none of us needs. To help prevent more pain and suffering in the workplace, many employers provide back support in the form of belts or braces. You could think of a back support belt as a kind of elastic cummerbund. A good one will have a double pull system that provides general tightness to the whole waist and creates compression over the spine. It also helps if the back brace uses a fulcrum, such as an air bladder or foam piece, to increase pressure over the spine
