Back braces and their uses
Choosing a back brace requires an in depth consultation with you doctor or physiotherapist, as each model serves its own purpose. Read on to learn which one would be best-suited for treating your specific condition.
Back braces - who are they for?
Back braces are professional medical products that are designed to treat certain conditions that affect the back. Note that you should first consult with a doctor or physiotherapist before purchasing this product, as the right model needs to be chosen, either for treating your specific condition, or to be used prophylactically.
A back brace is usually recommended for people who are experiencing back problems resulting from osteoporosis or rheumatism, as well as those who have postural defects, such as pectoral distortion of the spine segment. Other common defects may include kyphosis and secondary kyphosis as well. There is also a back brace for scoliosis, designed for correcting posture in children in the case of scoliosis.
In some cases, even a tlso back brace may be recommended after a patient has undergone surgery in either the thoracic, lumbar and sacrum part of the spine. Certain models are also used in treating injuries, especially fractures and compression injuries of the spine, and may also be recommended for treating chronic muscle pain or inflammation of the facet joints which is common around the chest area.
How do orthopedic back braces work?
A back brace is designed to stabilize a specific area of the spine, however, certain injuries can affect a number of spinal segments. For treating these types of cases, a TLSO back brace is recommended. Other back conditions caused by osteoporosis or scoliosis require specific braces for treatment - such as a back brace for osteoporosis. Overall, each back brace is designed to relieve the vertebrae of built up pressure and to reduce further injury to the spin and spinal cord.
A back brace for posture can help the wearer to regain balance when walking, while preventing further injury and reducing pain. More stiffened models are designed to protect postsurgical wounds from reopening and help to relieve the operated portion of the spine, in order to speed up tissue regeneration in the area. Most back braces help the wearer regain proper posture, as well as physiological positioning of the chest and other parts of the torso.
