Benefits of wearing back braces at home and at work

Does your back hurt consistently? Did you notice that you often sit at home or at work and your back isn't getting enough support? Over time, our behavior and back treatment can cause chronic pain, which can reach thousands of dollars in chiropractors, physiotherapist offices, and even pharmacies.

Wearing a back brace not only reduces back pain, but also prevents chronic problems due to its compression function. Whether you're in the office or at home, the three main benefits of wearing it are:

Stabilize and fix your weakened back

If you have recently had back surgery or have a back injury, you may not want to prolong the recovery process. Without proper back support around the home and at work, it is difficult to avoid re-injury and stress on weakened areas. Back braces can support the lower back by compressing the back, releasing muscles, joints, and intervertebral discs, and protecting the back from harmful movements.

Keep you active

Back pain may be that you don't want to lie down or do any activity. But this is the worst thing you can do for your back when you try to relieve your pain. The back brace allows you to move your back while staying safe. This also has the added benefit of reducing the likelihood of long-term back pain and providing range of motion not previously possible.

Straighten your back for better posture

Have you ever been told that you are crouching? It's easy to get sick at home or at work, especially if you're sitting all day. In the future, poor posture can lead to back pain and medical problems. Wearing a back brace stretches and perfectly aligns the spine, reducing the need to meet a chiropractor.

Investing in back health is important. Purchasing back braces can improve your muscles, joints, and spine in the long run, reducing your chances of chronic back pain and improving your quality of life.

Things to remember:

  • To determine if your back brace is reassuring, perform the following simple test. 1) Put your hands on top of each other and place them on your lower abdomen. 2) Lift upwards and inward. If you feel the pain in your lower back quickly relieves, a back brace can help.
  • Back brace are ideal for weak or tired muscles, when back pain recurs, or when you recover from back pain.
  • If you have a history of low back pain and want to lift heavy objects, a belt can help.
  • You can also purchase a back brace with suspenders for additional support.
  • Choose a back brace with double-sided pulls for good abdominal compression.
  • The lumbosacral band should only be used for the first days or weeks after an acute injury, and for relapse. It is also advisable to wear a belt when lifting heavy objects, especially if you have a history of back pain.
  • Make sure the belt is not too tight. This makes breathing and moving around uncomfortable
  • The key to an effective back brace is fit. Double check that it is the right size.
  • It is not a wise idea to put your  back brace in the washing machine and clean it. Rather, hand wash with cold water and air dry to avoid damaging the fibers and strength of the belt.
