|ACTIVE SI BELT®
for sacroiliac pain
HOW IT WORKS
The ACTIVE SI BELT® for Sacroiliac Pain wraps
around the pelvis and supports the sacroiliac joints
by re-creating the compressive stabilization force that
normally stabilizes the pelvic girdle. This compressive
stabilization force can be compromised for a number
of reasons including injury, muscle weakness, poor posture,
research shows why our product
works better than any other sacroiliac belt that is
The ACTIVE SI BELT does not ride up like other SI belts.
It stays comfortably positioned under the Anterior Superior
Iliac Spines - just where research shows it should be,
for the best support!
The innovative ‘Double-Belt’
design of the ACTIVE SI BELT® for Sacroiliac Pain
- Precise support with a Nylon over-belt.
- Flexible comfort from a Neoprene under-belt.
- Support that stays in place &
does not ride up like other SI belts.
research done at the prestigious Erasmus University Medical
Centre in Rotterdam, Netherlands has shown that the most effective
SI joint stabilization is achieved when the sacroiliac belt
is worn just below the anterior superior iliac spines (you can
feel these ‘boney bumps’ at the front of each hip).
This research is important because it shows that placing the
SI belt in the correct position is the key to stabilizing the
sacroiliac joint. The correct compression force must still be
applied to stabilize the pelvis; however it is not necessary
to excessively tighten a sacroiliac belt for it to be effective.
THE ACTIVE SI BELT® WORKS
DESIGN - The ACTIVE SI BELT® for Sacroiliac
Pain is constructed of a cushioned Neoprene under-belt
that flexes with movement and prevents slippage; and
a sturdy Nylon over-belt, which remains secured under
the front hip bones (anterior superior iliac spines)
during activity. SI Joint pain and low back pain is
reduced when you are sitting, standing, squatting, running,
and playing sports.
SUPERIOR COMFORT - The cushioning
of the Neoprene belt allows the Nylon over-belt to apply
the correct stabilization force and fully stabilize
the pelvis without pinching delicate soft tissues around
the hips and pelvic girdle. The result is the perfect
combination of SI joint pain relief, stability and comfort.
SUPERIOR EFFECTIVENESS - The superior
design and comfort of the ACTIVE SI BELT® for Sacroiliac
Pain means it will be worn consistently, resulting in
reduced strain, decreased back pain and faster healing
of the sacroiliac joint ligaments. This leads to a more
rapid recovery from injury and helps you to return to
a pain-free life.
INFORMATION: Sacroiliac Joint Anatomy and Pain
The pelvic girdle is a ring of bones connected by three
separate joint structures: the sacroiliac (SI) joints
in back and the pubic symphysis in front. Under ordinary
conditions, ligament stability, deep-core muscle control
and proper joint alignment will pull the pelvis together
to stabilize the SI joints and allow pain-free normal
For a number of different reasons the sacroiliac joints
can become painful and under most circumstances SI joint
pain is the result of some degree of hypermobility or
hypomobility in the pelvic girdle. Numerous factors
including acute injury, poor posture, cumulative trauma,
pregnancy, improper lifting techniques aging, etc. can
create this excessive or diminished mobility in the
sacroiliac joints or pubic symphysis resulting in low
back pain due to SI joint dysfunction or pubic symphysis
dysfunction. SI joint dysfunction is typically characterized
by pain in the SI joint, lower back, buttock, thigh,
or down the leg (sciatica). Pubic symphysis dysfunction
is a less common problem, but is often disabling with
pelvic pain, along with symptoms similar to sacroiliac
