Back supports are used to give support to the lower back and spinal column, whilst improving alignment, relieving back pain and helping to prevent damage. There are many different types of back support available which are tailored to suit specific needs.
A back support or brace can be extremely effective at improving back posture as part of the treatment and management of lower back pain. Painful back conditions such as Sciatica, slipped disc, sacro iliac joint pain, facet syndrome, spinal stenosis and degenerative disc disease can all benefit from wearing a back support. They are made from neoprene and other breathable fabrics for extra comfort. Neoprene material provides warmth and support that can help to relieve pain, reduce back muscle spasm and enhance healing. They feature plastic or metal reinforcing side stays which are particularly effective in back pain prevention for people who need support during heavy lifting and handling.
