Let’s talk belly bands…

Do you need a belly band?

Why might you need one and how can they help you?

Well, we are delving into the answers to those questions right now, so keep ready to find out more!

Why would you need a belly belt or support band?

So many reasons! But why you, in particular, need a belly band is unique to you and your body's needs.

Some of those reasons could be:

  • Increased comfort in pregnancy
  • Ostomy and hernia support
  • Relief for lower back pain
  • Support for overburdened muscles
  • Faster healing in postpartum
  • Reduced risk of further injury during recovery from surgery or injury
  • Diastasis Recti (abdominal muscle separation) support
  • Sacroiliac joint dysfunction (SPD) support
  • Helps to maintain good posture

Let’s look at some of the ways a belly band can help with these issues.

Abdominal support

The main reasons you'll want a belly band are to reduce existing aches and pains, or to minimise the risk of further pain or injury occurring. A lot of the pain we are talking about will be occurring in your abdomen.

Whether it's due to overburdened muscles during pregnancy, postpartum recovery, strenuous activity, surgery or injury, you'll find the right belly band so valuable for increasing abdominal comfort and reducing pain.

Ostomy, hernia or abdominal surgery

If you have weakened or damaged muscles due to an ostomy, hernia or surgery, you'll find a belly band especially effective in providing the essential support you need. It can help to reduce the risk of further injury and alleviate abdominal and back pain.

Pregnancy or general discomfort

Pelvic girdle pain is common in pregnancy and sacroiliac joint or SI pain can a     ffect anyone.  A good belly band support belt can help to provide support and alleviate symptoms of pain and discomfort.
