A back brace is a medical device specifically constructed to limit the natural motion of a spine; to provide stability and support. It may be prescribed in cases of fractures and post-operative fusions, ligament instability, as well as a preventative measure against some progressive conditions (e.g. idiopathic scoliosis). It is designed to support your spine, corrects posture and reduces pain so that you can return to your daily activities.
Common types of back braces include:
- Hard back braces: restrict spine motion by up to 50% and are designed as form-fitting plastic molds;
- Soft back braces: restrict forward motion of the spine and provide support to the spine during stress (e.g. heavy lifting) and are made of elastic material.
During your initial assessment, our trained physiotherapists and chiropractors will determine your current condition(s) and, upon preliminary diagnosis, may recommend usage of a back support device, Commonly, candidates for braces include:
- Pre/post-surgery individuals;
- Back sprains/strains
- Lumbar Disc Bulge
- Facet Joint Syndrome
- Postural Abnormalities
