What are some of the causes of back and neck pain?

Sitting for prolonged periods of time can be a major cause of back pain. Sitting is a static posture, which can add a tremendous amount of pressure to the back muscles and spinal discs. Additionally, sitting in a slouched-over or slouched-down position can overstretch the spinal ligaments and increase the pressure on your spinal discs.

Sitting with your back relatively straight and with good support is essential to minimize the load (strain) on your back. Especially when you sit for prolonged periods of time, you need to provide your lower back with support for the inward curve of the lumbar spine (lordosis).(For othrcauses please look below)

Why is the lower back so prone to injury?

The lower back endures the most strain as the spine twists and bends. 50% of flexion (bending forward) occurs at the hips and 50% occurs in the lower back.

This flexion is divided between the 5 motion segments in the lumbar spine, although a disproportionate amount of the motion is in the lower segments (lumbar segment 4-5 and lumbosacral segment L5).

Consequently, these 2 segments in the lower back are the most likely to be injured.

Doctors and Therapists Recommend

Many doctors and therapists recommend that you work your way through back pain by using back support belts. Backaches are painful, but the stiffness that comes with immobilizing yourself just makes things worse and delays your recovery time. Using a simple magnetic support belt to get back in the swing of things without hurting your self further is a great way to work through your back pain, and avoid it in the future.

A lumbar support belt wraps around the lower back region, where the lumbar vertebrae concave toward your belly. These belts are used to prevent back strain when lifting, exercising or standing for long periods of time,,these units offer the back support and the healing minerals to help already painfull backs and necks...

Sore Backs and Aching Necks

The Latest Waist Belts and Neck pad have two important factors not present in most units

1 Magnetic Therapy

Is it possible that the magnetic therapy used by physicians in ancient Egypt to keep their young queen healthy does have a positive effect? Not so long ago, magnetic therapy was pretty much shunned by mainstream medicine, dismissed as ineffective and, even worse, condemned as quackery. Any benefits that it might have, said the sceptics, could be explained by the placebo effect: patients believed that it worked, ergo it did.

But there is now mounting evidence that magnetic therapy can be effective. More than 300 research teams around the world, at institutions as prestigious and mainstream as Imperial College London, and California, Yale and Harvard universities, have found evidence of positive effects source.

A study, conducted at the National Institutes of Health's Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, got around the "blind"( in double blind placebo-controlled studie ) problem by testing two different strengths of magnets on people diagnosed with chronic sciatica (low back pain radiating down their leg). The size, construction, weight, and arrangement of the magnets along the spine were all strictly controlled, and the treatment period lasted for five weeks. Leg pain was significantly reduced by the stronger magnets.

Other forms of magnetic therapy are applied directly to the problem area. At Harvard University, patients with osteoarthritis were given high-strength magnet or dummy sleeves for their knees, which they wore for six hours a day, for six weeks. The researchers found that the beneficial effects of the magnetic sleeve began to kick in after four hours, with a sevenfold difference between patients who had the real sleeve and those who had the sham device. The team ruled out placebo effects because 77 per cent of the people who had the dummy treatment believed that they had had the real thing.

In a Harvard Medical School study of 29 patients with painful osteoarthritis of the knee, treatments were given in a clinic setting for four hours, eliminating the possibility of ruining the placebo effect. The pain scores decreased by 79 points in the treatment group, versus only 10 points in the placebo group source

A sudden-onset (acute) bout of neck pain is common. Two out of three of us will have neck pain at some time in our lives.

2 Tourmaline

Tourmaline is so effective and its long term healing is well repoerted! Proven by medical scientist! Click Here to See the Research Paper

The tourmaline granules in these Magnetic back and neck healing belts can be effective in treating neck stiffness and other conditions, because the weak electric current and far infrared rays that they generate improve circulation. In addition, tourmaline's electrolytic properties cause it to emit negative ions, which are thought to have multiple healing effects on the mind and body.

These many beneficial properties make tourmaline one of the most amazing minerals on the planet.

Discovery of a Weak Electric Current in Tourmaline

Scientists have long been intrigued by the unique electrical and magnetic properties of tourmaline. Benjamin Franklin, the inventor of the lightning rod, possessed at least one tourmaline stone and is said to have used it in his experiments. In 1880, Pierre Curie, co-recipient of the Nobel Prize in Physics (with his wife, the famous Marie Curie), discovered with his brother Jacques, a mineralogist, that tourmaline carries a weak electric charge when it is heated (pyroelectricity) or when pressure is applied to its surface (piezoelectricity). Later, research in Japan confirmed that tourmaline carries a faint but constant electric charge of 0.06mA, which is why tourmaline continues to be known as "the electric stone," especially in Asia. Japanese researchers also found that no matter how small tourmaline is ground or crushed, it is still capable of conveying an electric current. This helps explain the effectiveness of the tourmaline granules in these Magnetic back and neck healing belts.

Unlimited Solar Energy Is the Source of Tourmaline's Power!

The electric current that courses through tourmaline is actually a flow of electrons originating in the sun. The sun bathes the earth in a continuous stream of negatively charged electrons, which enter the positively charged side of the tourmaline material and exit from the oppositely charged side. With this current flowing through it at all times, tourmaline is like a battery with unlimited life, one that never runs out!

Not many people understand the way their back is held in alignment. It’s the muscles on your abdomen, and along the sides of the ribcage, that hold your back in place properly. Wearing a comfortable back support brace is like fortifying the muscles in the core of your body. It allows you to move, work, and play normally without fear of aggravating an existing muscle pull. Now you have the best of both worlds,,support and mineral magnetic healing all in one unit
