Unlike a back support belt using a pad allows full freedom of motion. It can be positioned to target the source of your pain whether its near the center of your back more to one side or over the hips. Advanced Biomagnetics ® The Platinum back pads high-energy magnets help reduce pain signals and increase blood circulation. This combination eases sciatica symptoms like sharp shooting pains buzzing and tingling. It also delivers more oxygen to tense muscles to help relieve back spasm and aid flexibility. This can reduce the risk of back strain particularly when lifting heavy objects playing golf or doing any kind of bending or twisting. Comfort & Convenience Therion magnetic back pads can be worn under or over clothing with the same effectiveness.
