Testimonial

The customer service was very helpful and so nice to work with. My Bio-back really helps me be able to stand for a much longer time. MY back does not give out on me like it does without the brace. I am so glad I found out about this brace and plan to tell my friends with back problems. - R.S.

MEDICAL CONDITIONS FOR WHICH BIO-BACK CAN PROVIDE PAIN RELIEF

The Bio-Back provides an effective, non invasive and drug free new tool for treating low back pain.
The Bio-Back is clinically proven to reduce the activity and strain on key endurance muscle groups in the lower back, including the vitally important Multifidus muscles. Current medical literature indicates that focusing on improvement of the endurance and static holding capacity of the spinal muscle groups during activity is vital for managing low back pain. The Bio-Back reduces the load on each of the pain sensitive structures, including the discs and joints, and automatically promotes a more neutral spine posture to relieve pain and encourage proper body mechanics, thereby restoring function. Improving posture and restoring function is a crucial component of any rehabilitation or treatment for low back pain.

Ankylosing spondylitis
  • Arthritis of the spine
  • Spondylitis
  • Spinal pain

 720.2 - Ankylosing spondylitis - sacroiliitis, not elsewhere classified (inflammation of sacroiliac joint

Arthritis of the Spine. Symptoms may include pain and/or stiffness from the neck down to the lower back. Vertebrae may grow (or fuse) together making the spine more rigid. This condition may be mild or severe, and may lead to a stooped-over posture. Spondylitis may also cause pain in some of the ligaments and tendons that attach to bones.
 
Backache
  • Aching back
  • Back pain
  • Back problems
  • Low back pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Lumbago

724.5 - Backache unspecified - vertebrogenic (pain) syndrome NOS

724.6 - Backache (postural), sacroiliac

Back pain or low back pain is one of the most common physical complaints among American adults. Back pain includes sore muscles and tendons as well more serious back conditions. One of the more common types of back pain comes from straining the bands of muscles surrounding the spine and most commonly this happens in the curve of the lower back.

Frequently, the causes of back pain have developed over a long period of time and happen because of bad habits developed over time. These bad back habits include:

  • Poor posture
  • Overexertion
  • Sitting incorrectly
  • Lifting, pushing or pulling things carelessly
 
Back Strain or Sprain
  • Back injury
  • Muscle pain
  • Muscle strain, muscle sprain

846.0 – Sprains and strains, lumbosacral (joint) (ligament)

847.2 – Sprains and strains, lumbar

Back sprain or strains frequently result from an injury to the ligaments or muscles in the back. Injuries generally occur when performing activities that you do not do very often, such as lifting a heavy object or doing yard work, which cause additional strain on back muscles. Minor injuries also may occur from falling, tripping, or sudden or excessive twisting of the spine. Severe back injuries may result from car accidents, more significant falls or from direct blows to the back or other impacts which compress the spine.
 
Fibrous Ankylosis
  • Nerve pain
  • Nerve root pain

724.9 - Ankylosis of spine NOS, compression of spinal nerve root NEC, spinal disoroders NOS

Fibrous ankylosis is the impairment of mobility due to the overgrowth (or proliferation) of fibrous tissue in the joints, which may also create pressure on the spinal column or spinal nerve root(s).
 
Herniated disc(s) and other intervertebral disc disorders
  • Bulging disc(s)
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Disc problems
  • Ruptured disc(s)
  • Slipped disc(s)

 722.10 - lumbar intervertebral disc without myelopathy lumbago or sciatica due to displacement of intervertebral disc (neuritis or radiculitis due to displacement or rupture of lumbar intervertebral disc)

722.32 - Schmorl's nodes - lumbar region

722.52 - Degeneration of lumbar intervertebral disc

722.73 - Intervertebral disc disorder with myelopathy - lumbar region

722.83 - Postlaminectomy syndrome - lumbar region

722.93 - Other and unspecified disc disorder - lumbar region

Herniated discs may occur as the spinal discs degenerate or grow thinner. The jellylike central portion of the disc bulges out of the central cavity and pushes against a nerve root.

Intervertebral discs generally begin to degenerate by the third decade of life. Herniated discs are found in a third of adults older than 20. Only 3% of these, however, produce symptoms of nerve impingement.

When alterations in the disc progress to degeneration it is called spinal degeneration.

 
Muscle spasms and muscle weakness
  • Chronic back pain
  • Mechanical low back pain or lower back pain

728.4 - Laxity of ligament

728.5 - Hypermobility syndrome

728.85 - Spasm of muscle

728.87 - Muscle weakness (generalized)

Low back pain related to muscle tension or spasm may be the result of frequent or ongoing tension or stress. If untreated or unresolved, these factors may result in chronic (or long term) back pain. Frequently, this leads to a downward spiral of inactivity, which weakens the muscles causing more pain and may lead to depression.

When aches and spasms are vague and not related to a specific injury, they may also be symptoms of depression or other medical conditions. It's important to see a doctor for a medical evaluation to determine the cause.

 
Musculoskeletal pain syndromes
 

729.10 - Myalgia and myositis, unspecified

729.20 - Neuralgia, neuritis, and radiculitis, unspecified.

Musculoskeletal pain syndromes, such as myofasical pain syndromes and fibromyalgia can produce low back pain. Myofascial pain is characterized by pain and tenderness over localized areas, loss of range of motion in the involved muscles, and radiating pain restricted to a peripheral nerve.

Fibromyalgia results in pain and tenderness in numerous areas (trigger points) when touched, which includes the low back.  This may result in stiffness, fatigue, and muscle aches.

 
Osteoarthritis
  • Facet joint arthrosis
  • Facet joint arthritis
  • Osteoporosis of the back

 721.90 - Osteoarthritis, spine, spinal NEC (see also Spondylosis)

Arthritis is a general term that means inflammation in joints. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease and is the most common type of arthritis. It is caused by a breakdown of cartilage in joints and can occur in almost any joint in the body. It most commonly occurs in the weight bearing joints of the hips, knees, and spine.  As cartilage in a joint becomes stiff and loses its elasticity, it becomes more susceptible to damage. Over time, the cartilage may wear away, greatly decreasing its ability to act as a shock absorber. As the cartilage deteriorates, tendons and ligaments stretch, causing pain. If the condition worsens, the bones could rub against each other.
 
Rheumatoid arthritis
 

 720.0 - Rheumatoid arthritis, spine

Rheumatoid arthritis is a type of chronic arthritis that typically occurs in joints on both sides of the body. Symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis include:  joint pain and swelling; Stiffness, especially in the morning or after sitting for long periods; and fatigue.

Rheumatoid arthritis affects people differently. For some people, joint pain develops gradually over several years. In others, rheumatoid arthritis may progress rapidly.  Other people may have rheumatoid arthritis for a limited period of time and then enter a period of remission.

 
Sciatica
  • Leg pain

 724.3 - Sciatica - Neuralgia or neuritis of sciatic nerve

Sciatica is a common type of pain affecting the sciatic nerve, a large nerve extending from the lower back down the back of each leg. 

Sciatica may only affect one side of the lower body and generally the pain extends from the lower back all the way through the back of the thigh and down through the leg. Depending on where the sciatic nerve is affected, the pain may extend all the way to the foot or toes.  For some people, sciatica pain can be severe and debilitating, while for others the pain might be infrequent and irritating.

 
Spinal stenosis
 

 724.02 - Spinal stenosis lumbar region

Spinal stenosis is the narrowing of spaces in the spine (backbone) which causes pressure on the spinal cord and/or nerves. That vast majority (about 75%) of cases of spinal stenosis occur in the low back (lumbar spine). Frequently, the narrowing of the spine associated with stenosis compresses the nerve root, which can cause pain along the back of the leg.

The most common causes of spinal stenosis are aging, arthritis, heredity, instability of the spine or trauma. The two most common forms of arthritis that may affect the spine are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

 
Spondylolisthesis
 

738.4 – Spondylolisthesis (lumbosacral), acquired, degenerative, traumatic

756.12 - Spondylolisthesis (congenital) (lumbosacral)

Spondylolisthesis is a condition in which one bone in your back (vertebra) slides forward over the bone below it. It most often occurs in the lower spine (lumbosacral area). This may lead to your spinal cord or nerve roots being squeezed and can cause back pain and numbness or weakness in your legs. Sometimes, when a vertebra slips out of place, you may have no symptoms for years. Then, you may have pain in your low back or buttocks. Muscles in your leg may feel tight or weak.
 
Spondylosis
 

 721.3 - Lumbosacral spondylosis without myelopathy - lumbar or lumbosacral (arthritis, osteoarthritis, spondylarthritis)

Osteoarthritis of the spine sometimes is called spinal spondylosis, or spondylosis. see osteoarthritis for more information.
