WHY MORE AND MORE PEOPLE SUFFER FROM ARTICULAR PAINS?
Pain in the spine is a pathology that often hinders working activity and exercise. Approximately 5% of all adults suffer from at least an episode of lumbago a year, indipendently of age and social-economic conditions; 70% of the world population experience at least a significant episode of dorso-lumbar pain once in their lives.
The most frequent causes are represented by muscolar-ligament damage (stretches/sprains), post-traumatic joint lesions (mechanical pain) or degenerative disease (arthrosis).
Moreover, the spreading of sports-activity has increased the number of direct and indirect traumas (repeated micro-traumatism, overwork, overload). The use of thermoelastic and holding supports is aimed at exerting a compressive action and reducing passive as well as active movements, thus relieving the joint segments that are involved.
