Lumbar (Lower Back) and Pelvic Braces and Supports are designed to provide support and stability to the lower back region. They are commonly used to alleviate pain and discomfort associated with lower back injuries, such as sprains, strains, and herniated discs.
Lower back braces can be particularly useful immediately after injury as they can help to reduce the load on the affected area, allowing the injury to heal more quickly. They can also be used to help prevent further injury by providing additional support and stability to the lower back.
During rehab, Lumbar (Lower Back) and Pelvic Braces and Supports can be helpful in allowing the injured person to perform certain exercises and activities that may be difficult or painful without the added support. They can also be used to help with the transition back to normal function, by providing support and stability as the injured person gradually increases their activity level.
There are many different types of lower back braces available on the market, ranging from simple lumbar supports that can be worn under clothing to more complex braces that are designed to provide more support and stability. Some lower back braces are also designed to be adjustable, allowing the wearer to customize the level of support they receive.
It is important to consult with a healthcare professional before using a lower back brace, as they can advise on the most suitable type of brace for the individual’s specific needs and injury.
