About Back Brace
Motion of the lumbar (lower) spine can delay healing in fractures or in post-operative fusions. Limiting the motion of the spine enhances the healing process for bone in both conditions, and will also usually decrease the patient’s low back pain and discomfort.
Two types of back braces are commonly used to limit the motion in the spine:
- Rigid braces
- Corset braces (elastic braces)
