You May Want to Brace Yourself!

Back pain is never an ideal situation, but can a back brace help?

A lumbar-sacral orthosis (LSO) brace can aid in the support of your spinal posture. It can also reduce pain, prevent further injury, as well as promote healing. By targeting specific areas of the back and spine, the back brace allows key muscles to relax thus minimizing stress and strain on those particular muscles, as well as reducing pressure on exiting nerves in the spine.

There are a fair number of conditions in which a back brace might be appropriate including, bulging or herniated discs, acute or chronic muscle strain/sprain, added post-operative or post-procedural support, degenerative disc disease, to name a few.

Well-fitting back braces offer a minimally invasive and safe approach to addressing back pain, diminished stability, or poor posture. But braces are not limited to just low back conditions. Bracing may also be considered for neck, knee, ankle, sacrum, or foot issues. As a result, you may want to brace yourself. Better yet, talk to your Advanced Spine and Pain (ASAP) provider and let us help find the brace that is best for you and your situation.
