Features Of The Herniated Disc Back Brace

The support and intracavitary pressure the lumbar brace provides help reduce the strain placed on the tissues of the low back, easing the symptoms of a herniated disc or some other back injury. This relief for herniated disc has numerous features that help make it stand out from all of the other lower back braces out there.

  • Front and Back Panels Provide Maximum Support

The anterior (front) and posterior (back) panels support the tissues located in your lumbar back region, which helps relieve your discs from the pressure of your back. These inserts are designed to give you a comfortable fit! The rigid back panels of this lumbosacral brace for herniated disk treatment are made of ABS plastic inserts—a durable, impact- and heat-resistant material. The rigid panels of the herniated disc treatment are contoured to the body and both panels can be removed. Depending on the level of compression you desire or what activities you are doing, your back may need more or less support.

  • Comfortable and Breathable Material

This brace for lower back pain relief is comprised of a soft and breathable material. You don’t have to worry about the brace rubbing or irritating your skin as the mesh material lies comfortably against your back. Due to the lightweight material, you can wear this lower back support beneath or over your clothes, depending on your preference.

  • Easy Application

This belt for a herniated disc in the lower back is secured via Velcro contact closures that make application simple. Elastic double-pull tabs make it easy to achieve a secure and customized fit. The closures are located in the front so you don’t have to worry about twisting or turning which could further harm your back.

  • Pocket for Removable Cold or Hot Pack

The belt for ruptured disc treatment can also hold a gel pack for cold or heat therapy in the back of the brace. Such therapy can be essential for the healing process of your herniated disc condition. Applying ice to your back will help reduce the uncomfortable swelling and inflammation. Whereas, applying heat helps promote blood flow and helps to relax your muscles. You can remove the gel packs depending on the stage of recovery you’re currently in. (Note that these gel packs must be purchased separately.)

  • Right Fit For Any Size of Individual!

This brace comes in sizes XS all the way up to 4XL, making it easy to find the right fit! You no longer have to be frustrated looking for a brace large or small enough for your specific body shape.

How Does This Brace Help Me Recover From A Lumbar Herniated Disc?

A herniated disc, also known as a slipped or ruptured disc can be quite disruptive to your day-to-day life. A ruptured lumbar disc refers to when some of the soft inner material of a disc slips through a crack in its tough exterior.

This differs from a bulging disc where the disc simply bulges outside of the space it normally occupies without rupturing.

But the symptoms, causes, and conservative modes of treatment of herniated and bulging discs are largely the same.

The cause of a herniated disc in the spine or a bulging disc is often simply the gradual disc degeneration that occurs as you age. Sometimes a traumatic event or using your back muscles to lift something large or improperly is to blame for a ruptured disc in the lower back.

Wondering if you have a herniated, bulging, and ruptured discs are? Check out this blog to help you differentiate between the spinal conditions.

In some cases, you may not even be aware this has occurred. But if the herniated disc impacts one or several spinal nerves, it can cause intense pain in the buttocks, thigh, and calf that can eventually shoot into your arm or legs when you a cough, sneeze, twist, etc.

Other ruptured disc symptoms include numbness or tingling in the affected area, muscle weakness, and loss of bladder control (severe cases).

Whether you are able to treat a herniated disk using conservative or surgical treatment will depend upon the severity of your symptoms, as well as the health of the individual.

Conservative treatment for a herniated disc in the lower back typically involves:

  • Modifying your activities such as avoiding high contact sports and heavy lifting to prevent further injury
  • Anti-inflammatory medications to ease your pain and swelling
  • Following a regimen of exercises for herniated disc patients, specifically
  • Wearing a herniated disc back brace for a limited amount of time is also incorporated into herniated disc therapy for many as this can rest the back so that inflammation can subside and healing can occur. This particular belt reduces pressure on your discs, making it uniquely suited for relieving herniated disc pain
  • Heat or ice therapy can also help reduce inflammation and soothe sore tissues
  • Other conservative ruptured disk treatment options are traction, an ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and cortisone injections

In roughly 90% of patients, conservative methods are enough to ease the symptoms of a herniated disc. But for a small number of patients, surgery to remove the protruding part of the disc or, in rare cases, the entire disc.

Again, this back brace can offer the support you will need after undergoing such surgeries.

While herniated discs are most common in the lumbar spine, they can also occur farther up in the thoracic and cervical spine. Because the inserts of this brace extend to the T9 vertebrae, this brace can also help with herniated disc in the upper back in some cases. If you have a herniated disc in your neck or cervical region, BraceAbility offers neck braces for various types of degenerative disc disease in all regions of your spine!

I have had this back brace for about 5 to 7 years now. I have had to have surgery three times, on my second surgery they gave me this brace, or I should say I paid for this brace. I love it, yes it is a bit high. I paid a great deal more than I am going to pay now. But it is the very same brace. I love the fact that I can put cold or hot and also make the brace a little harder by putting in the hard liner for a little more support like when I am working my wood shop. Or I can just leave it out if I am hurting and want to put the brace on while just sitting around watching the ball game. With this brace you can make it be when and how you want it. This brace is so very much better than the first one I had. That brace was just one way. I wanted and got a brace the way I needed it to be, MY WAY. I hurt but not always in the same way, I do not work with this company in any kind of way, I am not being paid or been given anything in return for what I am saying. I am doing this and trying to be truthful about every thing I am saying. I have a very bad back and will for the rest of my life. Unless God steps in. I know how hard it is to fine something that truly helps with the pain. I can not say about any others. I just know for me this brace really works for me. I am doing this review only to maybe help someone to know that this brace really does what it was made for, to help with the pain in a bad back. I.hope this review helps somebody.
