Protect Your Spine With a Back Brace

If you don’t have one of our back braces, you may be missing an important part of your care! We recommend back braces to patients whose spines are unstable. When the spine is unstable, it is more prone to injury. Instability can occur from pinched nerves that cause imbalance in the musculature. It can also happen from severe disc damage, degenerative discs (arthritis in the spine), spinal fractures and other congenital problems. In many patients, their core musculature has become so weak, it no longer supports their spine, causing it to be unstable. A good back brace will provide temporary support to both the spine and core musculature to protect the unstable spine from getting injured.

Back braces are meant to protect your back when you’re lifting/bending; this is especially important for protecting your spine from re-injury when you’re under treatment. When patients first begin chiropractic care, back braces are extremely helpful in keeping the spine supported so discs and nerves can heal without set-backs from new injury. Back braces also allow the patient to still remain somewhat active during recovery without having to worry about re-injury.

The best back braces provide support for both the lumbar, lower thoracic spine and core musculature. It should be comfortable to wear, easy to adjust and quick to put on/take off. At Solutions, we offer the best lumbosacral back brace available today, the L0650. It offers the most coverage, support and comfort of any you will find and is super convenient to use. The L0650 back brace is highly recommended during your treatment, but also works great for protecting your back during any future activities after you’re recovered, so you can stay active and preserve your treatment results. If you do not have a lumbar back brace, contact us! Some insurance companies even offer coverage.
