Some reasons to use this wrap include:
- Post-operative stabilization– Following back surgery stabilization is important to reduce possible problems with implants. When recovering from this type of surgery, often a surgeon or physical therapist will assign lumbar stabilization exercises such as a hamstring stretch or pelvic tilt. By utilizing the Triple Play Back Wrap with exercises, patients can decrease irritation and swelling while stimulating healing.
- Chronic low back pain– This is the leading cause of work limitations and effects 8% of all adults. Usually this type of irritation is caused by a pervious injury. In order to work towards recovery, some physical therapists would suggest intermittent compression.
- Compression fractures– There are several ways to treat compression fractures including medication. But, cold compression therapy will help patients reduce pain and swelling without additional prescribed medications.
