A BRIEF HISTORY
WHY DOES BACK PAIN OCCUR?
The problem of back pain has been looked at from research perspective for many years, and findings from Real Time Ultrasound and MRI studies have shown that even one episode of low back pain produces dramatic, profound muscle weakness and incorrect muscle "firing patterns." The key spinal muscles involved are deep core muscles, multifidus and gluteal, and are often inhibited or "switched off" when pain persists.
The result of these muscles firing incorrectly is the loss of deep spinal stabilization and excessive shearing forces through the spine and disc. The body will always try and compensate for this "loss of stability" with overactivation of more superficial muscle groups like oblique abdominals and erector spinae (large "strut" muscles down our spine). This strutting of your spine creates a stiffness or rigid spinal stability that restricts movement.
There are many causes of back pain, including blood vessels, internal organs, infections, mechanical, and autoimmune causes. The spinal cord, nerve roots, vertebral column, and muscles around the spine can all be sources of back pain. The anterior ligaments of the intervertebral disc are extremely sensitive, and even the slightest injury can cause significant pain. In osteoporosis, the bones become weaker and can develop small cracks, or fractures, in the bones, resulting in pain. Arthritis in the joints of the back can also result in discomfort. The synovial joints of the spine (e.g., zygapophysial joints/facet joints) have been identified as the primary source of the pain in approximately one-third of people with chronic low back pain, and in most people with neck pain following whiplash.
LOW BACK PAIN
Facts about low back pains
Pain in the low back can be a result of conditions affecting the bony lumbar spine, discs between the vertebrae, ligaments around the spine and discs, spinal cord and nerves, muscles of the low back, internal organs of the pelvis and abdomen, and the skin covering the lumbar area.
Treatment of low back pain is optimally directed toward a diagnosed or suspected specific cause. For acute lumbar strain, use of a home remedy initially can be beneficial.
What is the anatomy of the low back?
To understand various causes of low back pain, it is essential to appreciate the natural design (anatomy) of the tissues of this area of the body. Important structures of the low back that can be related to symptoms in this region include the bony lumbar spine (vertebrae, singular = vertebra), discs between the vertebrae, ligaments around the spine and discs, spinal cord and nerves, muscles of the low back, internal organs of the pelvis and abdomen, and the skin covering the lumbar area.
The bony lumbar spine is designed so that vertebrae "stacked" together can provide a movable support structure while also protecting the spinal cord from injury. The spinal cord is composed of nervous tissue that extends down the spinal column from the brain. Each vertebra has a spinous process, a bony prominence behind the spinal cord, which shields the cord's nervous tissue from impact trauma. The lumbar vertebrae stack immediately atop the sacrum bone that is situated in between the buttocks. On each side, the sacrum meets the iliac bone of the pelvis to form the sacroiliac joints of the buttocks.
Pregnancy commonly leads to low back pain by mechanically stressing the lumbar spine (changing the normal lumbar curvature) and by the positioning of the baby inside of the abdomen. Additionally, the effects of the female hormone estrogen and the ligament-loosening hormone relaxin may contribute to loosening of the ligaments and structures of the back. Pelvic-tilt exercises and stretches are often recommended for relieving this pain. Women are also advised to maintain physical conditioning during pregnancy according to their doctors' advice. Natural labor can also cause low back pain.

TIPS TO PREVENT BACK PAIN
- With regular use of the Zero Compression back brace also ensure to:
- Maintain a healthy weight and diet.
- Remain active – under the supervision of your doctor/physical therapist.
- Avoid prolonged inactivity or bed rest.
- Warm up or stretch before exercising or physical activities, such as gardening.
- Maintain proper posture while on the bed.
- Wear comfortable, low-heeled shoes.
- Sleep on a mattress of medium firmness to minimize any curve in your spine.
- Lift with your knees, keep the object close to your body, and do not twist when lifting.
- Quit smoking, smoking impairs blood flow, resulting in oxygen and nutrients deprivation to spinal tissues.
- Work with your doctor or a chiropractor to ensure that your computer workstation is ergonomically correct.
POSTURE CORRECTION IS ESSENTIAL
By using the Zero Compression back brace, it is possible to correct bad posture and relief back pain.
While wearing the Zero Compression back brace, start with soft knees and keep the weight off the back rim of your heels.
This will shift your weight slightly forward and allow your pelvis to sit more efficiently with better postural core muscle awareness.
Remember your core muscles are your postural muscles, but poor posture tends to make them "turn off" and weaken. The good news is, the Zero Compression back brace helps to also "turn on" and strengthen your core muscles more efficiently.
In standing, we want to aim to have your head "stacked" on your chest, your chest "stacked" on your pelvis and pelvis over knees and feet.
You normally have a slight inward curve in your lower back and outward curve in your upper back or chest. It is the balance between the two curves which gives our spine structural stability against gravity. Add right core/postural muscles and are core stable and postural correction.
A TRUE AND INSPIRING STORY ABOUT OUR COMPANY AND HOW THE ZERO COMPRESSION BACK BRACE WAS CREATED, AND HOW IT HELPED SO MANY PEOPLE
My name is Rosalie Dudkiewicz. I have been a nursing professional for over twenty-three years. In my work I am always on my feet, bending over, and lifting patients. It's not surprising that over time I developed pain in my sciatic nerve. The intense discomfort radiated down my legs and made it increasingly difficult to walk.
My doctor suggested I have a Facet Rhizotomy (a procedure that eliminates the nerve that comes from the hypertrophied facet joints and sends a pain signal to the brain). The procedure was more than a failure; I ended up with two herniated disks at stage 4. I was unable to drive, sleep, or sit without agonizing pain. I was forced to go on temporary disability and face the reality of being permanently disabled.
I was referred to a pain management physician who placed me on multiple pain medications, sent me to physical therapy, and performed an epidural block. Nothing relieved that debilitating pain. My last option was back surgery. By that time, I had lost faith in doctors, and I refused to pursue that option.
I was forced to leave my beloved nursing career. I was unable to drive and was housebound most of the time. I was impatient with my husband and children due to a lack of sleep and pain. I was depressed and felt hopeless.
Each night I struggled to find a position that might allow me to rest. As I did so, I noticed that when I bent forward into a fetal position, my pain would increase, but when I changed to a lateral position with my body straight, the pain subsided. It was impossible however to maintain the position. I tried a supine position, again straightening out my body. There was no relief, and the pain was exacerbated by the pressure of the mattress. It occurred to me that if I could release pressure on my spine and nerves, I could stop the pain. I cupped my hand over the injured disks and held it there for 30 minutes. Slowly my pain began to disappear. I couldn't believe it.
I called out to my husband who was getting up to work his night shift. He looked at me skeptically as I poured out excitement over my discovery. "We'll talk about it when I get home," he said.
And talk we did. We discussed how the endless number of braces I tried had no effect. I pointed out that all these braces created pressure on the spine and nerves and increased my pain. I was confident that I could devise a brace that would protect the spine and nerves from being compressed by an object, such as the mattress or chair, and at the same time support my back muscles and keep my spine straight. If I were right, my back pain would decrease substantially while I wore it.
My husband agreed. He utilized his engineering skills to help turn the concept into a reality. It was primitive at first. I sewed the pieces by hand. When I tried on the finished prototype, I held my breath. Hours went by. I sat, I slept. It was helping my pain!
I then decided to make significant improvements. I bought a sewing machine and learned to sew. After many adjustments, I finally developed a much-improved brace. It fit well and was not visible under clothing.
I dutifully continued my physical therapy. One day I showed the brace to my physical therapist. He looked it over and said, "I have never seen anything like this! I'm surprised no one has come up with this before."
That night I sat down with my husband, and we applied for a patent.
I continued using my brace 24/7. I still couldn't quite believe it. Maybe it was a fluke. I tried removing the brace to test it, and the pain returned. I put it back on, the pain was eliminated.
I decided to share my invention and its effect with my doctor, a brain, and spine surgeon who is a recognized expert in his field. I told him how I had created a brace and that I was returning back (no pun intended) to work. He raised his eyebrows, examined the brace, and said, "Why didn't I think of this?"
Encouraged, I began telling my friends and fellow sufferers. Soon they were asking me to make them a brace. My home became my studio. I was up to my eyeballs in materials for my braces. I was working night and day (with no pain, mind you), and I was giving my creation away. I was excited by all the positive reports from people of various professions including my colleagues in the medical field, friends, neighbors, even my hair stylist. Some of them who had been suffering after multiple back surgeries found relief.
My friends advised me to have the brace professionally manufactured so I could put it on the market and help a wider audience. My husband and I took up the challenge and ventured forth. It's been a lot of work, but incredibly rewarding. Ultimately, we created the brace to be attractive, and invisible under clothing. We even designed a brace for pregnant women.
