SI-LOC® Support Belt
Effective for low back pain relief, the SI-LOC sacroiliac belt supports and compresses the SI joint. Non-returnable.
Therapists prefer the SI-LOC® over other back braces and SI support belts because it stays in place. Patients prefer the comfort of the SI-LOC’s lightweight, breathable fabric and non-bulky design that conceals easily under clothes.
SI-LOC offers relief from low back pain and back spasms, along with referred pain in the hip, pelvis or sciatic pain extending down the leg. Its patented, tapered design is wider at the innominates for even pressure distribution, making it comfortable to wear for long periods while keeping steady, supportive pressure on the SI joint. Wide, medical-grade, non-slip pads prevent the SI-LOC from sliding while dual hook-and-loop closures allow user to adjust the anti-slip buckle to where it is most comfortable.
Developed by the IAOM-US; patented.
SIZING INFORMATION: Measure the pelvic circumference at a level 1” above the most superior aspect of the greater trochanters.
Amazing back supportWhen my PT first showed me the belt I couldn't believe it would do any good. But, I was desperate and willing to do whatever he suggested. It's absolutely amazing. I wear the belt, do heavier lifting than I should and survive with only a little soreness instead of the excruciating pain that used to follow. It's just me so leaving chores and duties to someone else or not doing them isn't an option. This belt is a miracle for me.
Definitely helpsI've had sacroiliac problems on/off for about 20 years. When it acts up, I definitely use this belt. It does help, and I'm not as fearful in walking/making the pain worse when I wear it. I found that I need to pull it tightly, but then it does rub on the other side of my hip. I was told by my physical therapist not to put it directly on my skin, as it can aggravate the skin, so I try to have it either on top of my underwear or slip (I often wear skirts). However, especially on the slip I find myself a few times of the day having to readjust it, as the slip is slippery. Also, of course, I have to readjust it when going to the restroom. Nevertheless these inconveniences are nothing to the relief the belt affords me. I don't wear it when I'm sleeping. Let me also add that I frequently take the belt when I travel. However, while in a Florida airport I was stopped going through security. I tried explaining why I wear the belt, but I was still taken to a room and made to strip; the security folks had never heard of it before. I had no problems, after they felt the belt and I showed them how I put it on, but it still was a little nerve racking. So, from now on I don't wear the belt through security; it's in my carry on (I actually have 2 belts and the other one is in my checked luggage). I also have the originally paperwork from the packet explaining what it is, and also on my physical therapist's letterhead that I'm using this for support. Just in case . . .
A huge helpI was having major sacroiliac pain from a fall and my PT suggested this support belt. It made a huge difference in that even walking was very painful before putting the belt on. With wearing it during the day and sometimes while sleeping, the pain has diminished tremendously and I am able to move so much more fluidly. It does fit under clothing without being obvious so can be and is worn out during the day. I will continue wearing the supportive belt as much as I can.
