We Tried It: The Serola Belt

The Serola Sacroiliac Belt, designed by chiropractor Dr. Rick Serola, improves back strength

When one of the greatest players in the history of the game has his career impacted by back problems, people pay attention. Unfortunately, back problems among avid golfers are not uncommon. In a recent survey, 4 out of 5 golfers admitted to having their game and enjoyment of it negatively impacted by back pain. More specifically, lower back problems account for 1/3 of all golf injuries. That's because during the golf swing the rotation of a golfer's hips and weight transference is a very unnatural motion for the Sacroiliac Joint. The Serola Sacroiliac Belt, designed by chiropractor Dr. Rick Serola, utilizes a patented design to improve back strength, enhance performance and provide pain relief to golfers who suffer from back pain. By stabilizing the sacroiliac joint – located in the pelvic area, below the hip bones, above where the upper leg creases – the Serola Sacroiliac Belt alleviates back pain stemming from the tremendous tension and torqueing the golf swing places on the human body when loading and unloading the hips. The result is greater power on the course and reduced pain during and after the round. Unlike a lumbar belt, the Serola Sacroiliac Belt is designed to be worn on the lower back around the hips. It can be worn when golfing, working routinely or during any part of the day or night to support the SI joint, relax muscles and promote strength and healing. The Serola SI Belt utilizes a proprietary performance fabric that allows for stabilization with enough flexibility in the joint that there is no risk of atrophy; in fact, the belt actually works to repair damage to your musculoskeletal system over time. The Serola Sacroiliac Belt is available in sizes S-XL as well as custom sizes. The Serola Belt retails for $38.00 and is available for purchase now at www.serola.net.
