Can a sock aid help back problems?

Back pain and back problems

Four out of five of us will experience back pain at some point. A strain or simple sprain causes the majority of back pain. These injuries usually improve in a short time with some self-help treatments.

If, however, the back pain becomes persistent (also known as chronic) or has a more complex underlying cause, it then will take longer to heal and you will need to speak to a doctor or specialist.

Back pain may be called various names depending on how long your symptoms last. You may have:

  • Chronic back pain that has lasted for longer than three months
  • Sub-acute back pain which has lasted six weeks to three months.
  • Acute back pain which has lasted less than six weeks.

How does back pain occur?

It’s not always possible to understand and identify the cause of back pain but, the majority of the time it’s not serious. Most back injuries do not cause lasting damage but you must listen to the pain your body is experiencing; it’s your body telling you to do something about it and rest.

Common occurrences of back pain are:

  • Bad postural habits such as sleeping or sitting in poor posture
  • Injury
  • Lifting something awkwardly
  • Doing an unusual movement
  • Being stressed or run down

What does a sock aid do?

A sock aid (also known as a sock assist or sock helper) allows you to put on your socks in a seated position without needing to bend down.

See the video below to find out how!

Our sock aid can be used with any socks from ankle to knee height, except for compression socks. The sock aid works for both male and female adult feet up to a size 10.

How can a sock aid help you?

When your body is recovering from a back problem, you back will heal quicker if you give it time to rest. As our back is the highway for communication between the body and the brain and it helps us move all of our limbs – resting it can be very difficult. 

The best way to approach this is by limiting the movements and strain of the back such as don’t lift anything heavy, don’t make sudden movements and use products like a sock aid to help you with tasks that require a lot of stretching in the back.
