ELASTIC LUMBAR BELT WEARING IN SUBACUTE LOW BACK PAIN IMPROVES SIGNIFICANTLY THE FUNCTIONAL STATUS, THE PAIN LEVEL, AND THE PHARMACOLOGIC CONSUMPTION
This randomized, multicentric, and controlled study with 197 subacute patients with low back pain (2 groups, 1 treated with a lumbar belt and 1 control group) shows that lumbar belt wearing is consequent to improve significantly the functional status, the pain level, and the pharmacologic consumption. This study may underline the interest of lumbar support as a complementary and nonpharmacologic treatment beside the classic medication use in low back pain treatment.
A multicentric, randomized, and controlled study to evaluate the effects of an elastic lumbar belt on functional capacity, pain intensity in low back pain treatment, and the benefice on medical cost was done on 2 groups: a patient group treated with a lumbar belt (BWG) and a control group (CG). The main criteria of clinical evaluation were the physical restoration assessed with the EIFEL scale, the pain assessed by a visual analogic scale, the main economical criteria was the overall cost of associated medical treatments.
Results. One hundred ninety-seven patients have participated. The results show a higher decrease in EIFEL score in BWG than CG between days 0 and 90. Respectively significant reduction in visual analogic scale was also noticed. Pharmacologic consumption decreased at D90 (the proportion of patients who did not take any medication in BWG is 60.8% vs. 40% in CG).
Conclusion. Lumbar belt wearing is consequent in subacute low back pain to improve significantly the functional status, the pain level, and the pharmacologic consumption. This study may be useful to underline the interest of lumbar support as a complementary and nonpharmacologic treatment beside the classic medication use in low back pain treatment.
NOTE: The Cox® Lumbosacral Belt is double-elastic for support and has a pocket for a "memory foam" insert that packs around the spine. The "memory foam" insert changes with the patient. As he or she heals and straightens, the belt adapts to the new posture appropriately.
"The Cox® Belt is the most comfortable I've ever had to use. Plus, I only had to get one, not have a new one made once I was upright."-- N.S., patient
