Cox Lumbar Support Belt IMPROVED and UPDATED!

11/03/2015
Dee Cee Labs has updated and improved the memory foam insert for the Cox® Lumbosacral Support Belt. Memory foam warms with body heat to pack in and around the spine to hold it properly while healing takes place. Amazing! Dr. Cox has used braces for over 40 years, finding them valuable in patient care, pain reduction, and function improvement.
 
Check out this short video showing off its pliability and hold. 
 
 
 
What conditions does Dr. Cox use these Cox® Lumbosacral Support Belts with?
  • Degenerative spondylolisthesis,
  • Disc herniations
  • Bertolotti's syndrome (transitional segment with disc herniation). 
How does he recommend these to be used?
  • to 50% improvement, 24 hours a day
  • at 50% improvement, just at night
What about back belts being bad for patients to use as they decrease muscle tone? New research shows...
  • Smith Research -  "The back belt consistently modified reaching postures by limiting extreme ranges of motion during a task that required enhanced stability." 
  • Holt Research - "The back belt consistently modified reaching postures by limiting extreme ranges of motion during a task that required enhanced stability."
  • Dalichau Research (2000) - "Elastic belts increase muscle strengthening for low back pain patients."
  • Azadinia Research (2016) - "This review did not find conclusive scientific evidence to suggest that orthosis results in trunk muscle weakness." 
  • Shavarpour Research (2018) - "Lumbar braces reduced pain, fear of pain and catastrophizing in subjects with LBP."
  • Chalmael Research (2009) - Elastic lumbar belt wearing in subacute low back pain improves significantly the functional status, the pain level, and the pharmacologic consumption for these patients.
  • Kang (2016) - Wearing soft lumbosacral orthoses was more effective than wearing rigid lumbosacral orthoses for posture control and pain control for low back pain.
  • Boutevillain (2018) - A retrospective study regarding short-term pain evolution in chronic low back pain with Modic type 1 changes treated by a lumbar rigid brace reports that 79% of participants showed improvement of at least 30% at 3 months. Two months after brace withdrawal, pain recurred for 30 of the 46 follow up patients.*
  • Ammendolia (2018) - Bracing the low back in spinal stenosis patients with intermittent claudication showed reduced lordosis and significant improvement in walking distance in 82% of the patients of at least 30% improvement.*

* Keep in mind that 30% improvement of pain and disability is considered minimal clinical improvement and worthy of implementation in medicine.
