The Vriksasana Sacroiliac Hip Belt: A Review

Hello Dazzle! Thanks for coming and hanging out with me today, I’m glad that you are here. If you’re struggling with lower back pain, you might be interested in exploring the Vriksasana sacroiliac hip belt. This belt is designed to stabilize the sacroiliac joint, which can be a source of pain for many people. In this article, I’m going to take a look at what the Vriksasana belt is, how it works, and let you know what I think about it.

The Vriksasana Sacroiliac Hip Belt

The sacroiliac joint is a small joint located at the base of the spine. It connects the spine to the pelvis. This joint can become inflamed. This joint most commonly becomes inflamed due to immobility or hypermobility with connective tissue disorders and osteoarthritis being common causes. The most common symptoms for sacroiliac joint inflammation are lower back pain and the following sensations in the lower extremity: pain, numbness, tingling, weakness, pelvis/buttock pain, hip/groin pain, feeling of leg instability (buckling, giving way), disturbed sitting patterns (unable to sit for long periods, sitting on one side), pain going from sitting to standing and increased pain when climbing stairs.

The Vriksasana belt is designed to help stabilize the sacroiliac joint and reduce pain. The Vriksasana belt is made of breathable fabrics and has a dual belt design that provides controllable compression. It also has secondary straps that allow you to customize the amount of compression over specific areas. The belt is also perforated to allow air and moisture to pass through.

Given that the belt functions by increasing stability at the sacroiliac joint by applying compression therapy, it is not the proper treatment if the sacroiliac joint pain and inflammation is being caused by immobility. In cases of immobility, this belt could worsen the problem. Thus, as with all medical problems, it is advisable to seek your doctor’s advice when considering new pain management options. One benefit to the belt is that it is a low risk option. It might not improve your pain or make your pain worse, in which case you need only stop using the belt. Which makes it much safer then the other treatment options for sacroiliac joint pain which include medications, manual manipulation, sacroiliac joint injections and surgery. The other lower risk options include heat, ice and rest.

What is perhaps most important to note here is that there is little research in the area of sacroiliac joint pain and inflammation treatment. This means that there are no clear risks and benefits for any of the proposed treatment options for sacroiliac joint pain and inflammation. This means that it is difficult to really know what the long terms risks and benefits of using a Vriksasana Sacroiliac Hip Belt would be. Thus, management of this condition is largely focused on quality of life as that is the only factor that can be judged at this time.

As far as considering this particular product is concerned, I find it to be a good value for the money that you are spending. It works exactly the way that it is designed to work. I have owned my belt for a few years now and it has stood up to intermittent use very well. It does in fact stay put even while I have worked a 12 hour nursing shift. The moisture wicking layer does work really well which is an important feature because this belt is really warm and leads to sweating under the belt. The Velcro and elastic in the belt are both high quality as they are still functioning as they did when I first bought the belt. I have hand washed this belt without any issues and laid it flat to dry. If you are going to get a sacroiliac joint support belt, I would recommend this one.

Well, that’s about it for my rambling today. Thanks for coming and spending some time with me. If you like what you read, click on that like button. It really does help! Until we talk again, you take care of yourselves!
