Severity for this condition can vary.

The forces going through the lumbar spine when you lift can be considerable. A back brace, or spinal orthosis, can help unload some of the weight normally placed on the spine and are designed to limit the motion of the spine in cases of fracture or in post-operative fusions, as well as a preventative measure against some progressive conditions.

Back braces are commonly used for the following conditions:

  • Muscle tension and strain
  • Spondylosis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Vertebral compression fractures
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Post-operative healing.

Functions of a back brace:

  • Reduce painful muscle tension which can be common post injury.
  • Improve posture to aid with pain relief and spinal alignment.
  • Reduce movement to aid healing.
  • Reduce load in the spinal structures.
  • Provide additional spinal support due to weakness or injury.
  • Warmth produced from wear may reduce muscle tensions and spasms.


  • Pain relief
  • Assist with healing post fracture or injury
  • Aid the return to work or general activities of daily living
  • Lessen the amount of pain medication required
  • Non-intrusive treatment method for spinal injuries
  • Allows you to take control of your treatment

Brace braces are available in different level of support from simple elasticated wrap-a-round back support for general pain management to, rigid braces to reduce spinal movement post injury. Total Body Orthotics has a wide range of braces available to suit your individual needs.
