Lower back pain comes in many forms: a dull aching, general tightness, quick spasms, a stinging or burning sensation, sudden sharpness, numbness, or tingling.
Lower back injuries, defined as those below the ribcage, often occur when the muscles, soft tissue, or ligaments surrounding the spine are sprained or strained, but they can also occur when the spine simply has too much stress upon it, usually from repeated movements, sudden impacts, twisting, bending, falling, or lifting.
Pain in the lower back occurs when pain receptors come into contact with inflammatory chemicals, when blood vessels are ruptured, or when connective tissue is damaged. The post-injury healing process requires the body to reestablish proper blood flow to the injury site, circulate oxygen and nutrients throughout the bloodstream, and/or produce new connective tissue (fibroplasia), which itself requires proper blood, oxygen, and nutrient flow.
RapidForce® Large Star Shapes are designed to do just that: encourage proper circulation of blood, oxygen, fluids, and nutrients to an injury site. The center point of the star serves as an anchor, and the six stretchable arms help stabilize the tissue, muscle, tendons, and ligaments beneath the skin. Critically, as a result of their strength and adhesive power, the Shapes also create mechanical lift, which literally lifts the upper layers of skin and provides more space for blood to flow and inflammatory chemicals to disperse.
RapidForce® Shapes are unlike any other pain-relief product on the market today. Each Shape’s patented design was carefully developed and perfected by a team of physical therapists, athletic trainers, engineers, and an ultrasound technician who sought to create a product that supports the muscles and helps relieve pain caused by muscle, tendon, joint, and ligament injuries. RapidForce® Shapes are used by athletes at all levels, including professional athletes, semi-pro athletes, and people who lead or want to lead an active lifestyle.
