A back brace is a device constructed to alleviate discomfort, as it evenly distributes the load of the body on the spine. It can be used for both treatment and prevention of chronic back pain.
Back Brace Benefits
Back braces are primarily used to correct back problems, but they also provide many benefits that transcend the treatment of pain. For one, it decreases the risk of injury because the brace provides support for the back and therefore makes it less likely to twist or bend in harmful ways.
Additionally, it can relieve pressure on your spinal cord because the brace provides a form-fitting surface for your back. This can help alleviate nerve pain by preventing impingement.
