LOWER BACK BRACES
At Caremore Medical Supply we carry a variety of lower back supports and braces that are designed to alleviate back pain after surgery or injury. Lower back braces work by giving added abdominal support which helps to maintain core stability which allows for proper healing, and relief. In addition lower back braces also relieve lower back pain by compressing the lower back. Most lower back supports are designed to be worn for everyday activities. These are great for people with lower back weakness or chronic pain.
If you are looking to relieve back pain, a waist belt can help.It is usually made of an elastic material that enables the waist trimmer to tighten and support your lower back and abdominal muscles. It stays comfortably in place and reminds you to use good posture when sitting or standing every time you have it on.
The belt entraps body heat and raises the waist temperature, increasing the flow of blood and restores relief to your aching back. Users report that tightness and discomfort will go away as soon as you wear the belt. Your back muscles will become more supportive and flexible. You will find it easier to lift things, work around the house and do your daily chores. The belt will also provide significant back support when you workout in the gym. Now that’s effective pain relief!
