Back pain and problems in the lower back affect 4 out of 5 Swedes at some point in their lives and the problems vary from temporary muscular pain, to chronic problems and instability.

There are many reasons for back pain. It may be due to ruptured tissues, ruptured discs or muscle spasms. You may also have been sitting or lying incorrectly, causing pain. Back pain can also be caused by stress and tension, which in turn leads to pain in the back and sometimes also the neck and shoulders. Many people can also have back problems when they have workplaces that force them into an uncomfortable working position. Other causes of back pain include spinal cord injuries, herniated discs or sciatica.

Often, back pain is completely harmless and usually goes away on its own. Sometimes, however, it may require treatment, medical attention or aids such as a back support or back belt.


If you use a backrest, it is good to make sure you also train your back, core and pelvic muscles. Back supports do not break down muscles, but you should make sure to increase your muscle fitness as well as the muscular coordination in your back. Using a back belt is a good way to make it easier for yourself when you start exercising your back. A back belt can also reduce your pain and give you more controlled movement in your back.


Treating back pain can be done in a variety of ways. However, it is good to be aware that it is always important to find out the cause of your back pain, as back pain should be treated according to the cause. There are also many studies on the use of back belts and back supports. If you are looking for a back support for your injury, we can help you find a back support.


If you have a herniated disc with pain, or back pain for another reason and have never exercised, you should train your entire body slowly, initially it can be about walking and simple home exercises to eventually do more advanced training.

A good rule is to avoid exercising things that hurt more when you exercise or make the pain worse after exercise. For example, it is common to get more pain after heavy lifting with forward bends and rotations. In an acute stage, regardless of what the pain is due to, it is about pain relief and movement so that you feel better and the pain decreases, a backrest can relieve your pain. Once the pain is relieved, you can return to your regular exercise. The use of a good and stable backrest can help you get started with the training faster and, above all, the back feels safer and you dare to take the turns in your movements a little more.

Once you have started training, it can be good to think about is to train stability first and gradually get your back used to the exercise you want to do. Go slowly and use a backrest!
