Back and Spinal Braces

Back and Spinal Braces

Back and spinal braces provide post-surgery back support and correctional posture support.  Back and spinal braces are available off the shelf as well as the custom-made.

The more solid form of brace limits spine mobility and is ideal for post-surgery use. This type of brace is custom-made to correctly fit shape and contours of the back.

Softer back and spinal braces provide support in such a way as not to completely immobilize, and are used mainly as protective braces as a result of physical activity. A softer brace is also suitable for post-surgery use.

Back and spinal braces are available in a range of styles and sizes and should be fitted by a trained medical specialist.
