Lumbar Brace for Spinal Stenosis and Other Sources of Low-back Pain
This lumbar corset for spinal stenosis stabilizes and supports the abdomen and low back via molded polyethylene shells at the front and back of one’s body.
Using Cybertech’s mechanical advantage pulley system, one can easily adjust the amount of compression the lumbar sacral orthosis (LSO) applies. This pulley system amplifies the force of one’s pulling motion, allowing easy achievement of one’s desired compression level.
This compression produces intercavity pressure that reduces the load on the discs of one’s thoracic and lumbar vertebra. The ergonomic panels also limit movement that might cause more damage and pain to the lumbar spine.
The anterior (front) location of this pulley mechanism is also quite convenient. The brace for spondylolisthesis also features an anterior hook and loop (Velcro-like) closure. The placement of these features is logical—it would make little sense to require twisting to apply/adjust the fit of something for spinal stenosis relief.
The LSO orthotic for stenosis stretches from the ninth vertebra of the thoracic spine down to the sacrococcygeal junction, providing an ideal amount of support to the lumbar and thoracic spine as needed for spinal stenosis treatment.
The aforementioned features equip this LSO support belt for treating the following:
- Lumbar spinal stenosis
- Lumbar mechanical back pain
- Facet syndrome
- Traumatic injuries, such as a vertebrae fracture
This orthotic can also be used as a post-operative back support following a number of procedures such as:
- IDET procedures
- Anterior laparoscopic fusion
- Multi-level decompression
The polyethylene that makes up the rigid shells of the brace is a form of plastic that is lightweight but also quite durable. Thus, one can expect these same qualities from the LSO back brace. These shells are ergonomically molded for a more comfortable fit.
The panels of this brace for spinal stenosis pain relief are buffered from the body by a laminate foam liner. This plush, breathable material will fit smoothly and comfortably against one’s skin.
Lumbar Corset Brace for Spinal Stenosis Treatment
Spinal stenosis refers to a narrowing of the spaces within the spine, which causes problems when it results in pressure on its nerves or the spinal cord. This typically occurs due to degenerative changes in the body. A herniated disc, tumors, a vertebrae fracture or inflammatory conditions are other possible causes of spinal stenosis.
Lumbar spinal stenosis (this might also occur in the cervical, or neck, area of the spine) typically causes pain and cramping in the legs after standing or walking for a long period of time. Spinal stenosis can also lead to sciatica, the hallmark of which is pain radiating down the leg.
Spinal stenosis treatment will depend upon the severity of one’s condition and discomfort as well as the health and lifestyle of the patient. Wearing a corset brace for the low-back can help support and stabilize the back in the interest of minimizing pain. This particular lumbar sacral brace also helps prevent one from moving in ways that might cause further low-back problems.
Another benefit of wearing Cybertech’s brace for stenosis of the low-back is that it produces intercavity pressure that helps to unload the lumbar back, easing pain and possibly slowing the progression of lumbar spinal stenosis.
Other conservative modes of treatment for lumbar spinal stenosis include taking medication, modifying one’s activities, receiving a corticosteroid or anesthetic shot or engaging in physical therapy where one will perform various exercises for spinal stenosis.
In some cases, surgery may be needed to achieve spinal stenosis relief. During such procedures a surgeon will remove trim or adjust the problematic components to make more room for the nerves and spinal cord.
Following such procedures, one will likely need a post-surgical lumbar support like this Cybertech brace.
