Question: How Can A Brace Help My Back Pain?

Answer: Bracing, or providing additional support for your low back, can sometimes improve, or even resolve the symptoms of low back pain entirely.

This is done by providing additional support for the structures in your low back such as your muscles and bones. By doing this, it allows your back time to recuperate from the strain or stress on your back.

Early in the use of symptoms from low back pain, this can provide significant benefit. One must be careful not to brace too frequently. Long-term bracing could actually lead to weakening of the muscles and structures in your back. It can actually cause worsening of your symptoms. It is always recommended to use intermittent bracing during the lifting of heavy objects such as at work.
