Advantages & Benefits of
Back Support Braces

Most back support braces today will have a compression in them that pulls the back brace to give you a very snug fit all around you. Many back injuries or back conditions end up in a revolving circle of inflammation and muscle spasm due to an acute injury or a chronic condition that flare up.

The causes of back pain are varied, because of the anatomy and function demanded of our spinal column.

Bracing is a good choice for conservative treatment. When there is back pain regardless of what the cause of it is, the reaction of the musculature is to contract into involuntary spasm or voluntary contraction of the muscles so they protect the injured or inflamed joint and soft tissue. The muscles often go into “overdrive” with good intentions of protecting the spine.

Using a back support brace, it allows the core muscles that are supporting the spine to relax and not be in “overdrive – protection mode“.  You are able to get up from sitting or lying down and move around more than you would with a back spasm that would hinder your movement.

There are many types of back support braces on the market today: good quality, bad quality, expensive ones, inexpensive ones, braces for different parts of the back: mid-spine and lower lumbar, tailbone or sacrum.

There are also many different designs that are using different materials such as elastic, soft plastic, hard plastic metal, velcro and laces.
