Surprisingly Simple – Amazingly Effective

Serola Biomechanics, Inc. offers insight into the body's response to injury centered at the sacroiliac joint. The company and its mission is the result of research done by Dr. Rick Serola, a chiropractor. In 1988, after noticing that muscle strength increased throughout the body after sacroiliac stabilization, he began research into the underlying biomechanics. As a result, he found the need for products that were not in the marketplace, so he developed them himself.

Serola Biomechanics, Inc. is always striving to offer insight in to the human body and how it responds to injury. The result of our many years of research has helped to create many innovative and high quality products including the Serola Sacroiliac Belt, the only sacroiliac belt to be endorsed by The American Physical Therapy Association – Section on Women’s Health (APTA-SOWH), which offers relief from low back hip pain and prevents further injury. This back support belt is also known as a Trochanter Brace, SI Belt, SIJ Belt or Pelvic Belt. Our brace is perfect for those who experience low back pain, side pain, sciatic hip pain, sciatica, SI joint pain, hip pain, chronic back pain or those who have pinched nerves.

Many use our back belt to help prevent and relieve SI joint pain, low back and hip pain caused by exercise or any motion involving lifting, bending and twisting. Many expectant mothers use the Serola sacroiliac belt to help support the pelvis and manage pelvic pain during their pregnancy. Many professional athletes, such as tennis players, golfers, and bowlers, also use the belt for back to help with sports-related injuries. Read More
