It doesn’t take an expert to recognize there are many anatomical differences between the sexes that in some instances necessitate differing braces. Therefore, BraceAbility offers a lineup of men’s back support products as well as a women’s line of back support products. Whatever the source of male back pain, BraceAbility likely has a support suited for any need.
Which Brace Is Top Selling for Men’s Back Braces?
One of the most popular men’s back brace is a great option for lower back pain. The Lumbar Back Brace is considered a top, or even the best, brace for men because it is designed in such a manner that it supports the low back and keeps the spine aligned, easing male lower back pain. But it is also sleek enough that it can be worn without hindering an athlete’s performance. Maintaining movement is important to the recovery process for any injury, thus making the activity-friendly design useful for non-athletes, too.
This lumbar back brace has patented fabric that is ideal for anyone experiencing discomfort, inflammation, and swelling related to circulatory issues. The active ingredients added to the inside of the brace significantly enhance comfort and mobility. This is great for post recovery, reducing fatigue and pain in overworked muscles and joints.
Although this brace can be used for many different conditions, more specifically, it can be worn to help treat severe disc injuries, arthritis, anyone who has suffered a sports-related injury, tendonitis, and injury from the repetitive lifting of heavy items, or even those with diabetes or poor circulation.
What Men’s Back Brace Do I Need To Correct My Posture?
Correcting your posture has a number of benefits including increasing your oxygen intake, reducing tension and stress on your back or neck, giving you more energy, and even making you feel more confident. Poor posture has become an increasingly large problem in our society especially with all of the new technology coming and going. Luckily for you, our posture brace for men helps to correct your posture while functioning as a comfortable brace.
This posture support brace is lightweight, breathable, and completely adjustable. This brace comes with adjustable straps, which allows you to tighten or loosen them for the ideal amount of comfort. If you wish to adjust your straps, simply trim and shorten any part of the brace by cutting the edges and re-apply the alligator clips. In addition, this brace leaves the front torso free from constraint and has extra padding for the straps under the arms, allowing a high level of comfort.
A similar product to the posture braces is the men’s upper back and clavicle brace. While this brace may look very close to the product previously mentioned, this brace is aimed more towards clavicle fractures and collarbone pain. The figure eight design helps to lift and immobilize your shoulder during the recovery process.
What Brace Is Specifically for Lower Back Pain?
There are many different causations or underlying issues that may be causing pain in your lower back area. From lifting incorrectly, carrying around extra weight, having a spine curvature disorder, fractures or sprains to a simple sports injury - back pain is never fun. This pain may cause you to miss out on daily activities or not perform up to your best ability in sports.
Here at BraceAbility, we have many different products specifically for men’s lower back pain. Our plus-size back belt helps with moderate to low back pain in the lumbar (lower) area. This brace is made of soft and breathable material and can be easily worn under clothing. Those who may be larger, have an increased chance of suffering from back pain. This plus-size wrap helps to support the lower spinal area from the extra strain that may be put on it.
One more brace specifically made for plus-size individuals is the obesity belt belly sling. This sling helps stabilize the abdominal, lumbar, and sacral regions of your back and can remove the stress of a heavy or unbalanced stomach. This brace is made of strong nylon material and can easily be secured and applied. Other problems in your lower back that may arise from being overweight can include osteoporosis, spinal stenosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and spondylolisthesis.
Aside from plus-size lower back braces, BraceAbility offers a number of back support belts for men in addition to the ones listed above. This Compression Lumbar Back Brace is a great multipurpose brace that can be purchased with a padded insert to massage and ease tension in the lower back, as well as promote circulation and muscle activity. Like men’s back support underwear or men’s back support girdle, this brace fits discreetly beneath clothes.
Another popular item for men is the Industrial Back Support Belt with Straps. As implied by its name, this is an industrial back support designed for those who often engage in lifting or carrying activities. Men more commonly have occupations that may require heavy lifting of physical work. This brace can help alleviate this pain and discomfort you might be experiencing after a long day at work.
We also have a spine sport athletic back brace that provides enhanced motion and flexibility during your recovery period, especially if you’re an athlete or an active person. This low profile brace has a patented Mechanical Advantage Pulley System that helps to compress the abdominal region. In addition, it provides great airflow and comfort during activities and can easily and discreetly be worn under or over clothing. This spine back brace can be used to treat spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, chronic low back pain, low back sprains, muscle strain, and arthritis.

What Brace Is Specifically for Mid to Upper Back Pain?
Although lower back pain is more common when in comparison to upper or mid back pain, it can still be a painful and frustrating injury to go through. Our TLSO brace has three different pads on the brace that articulate with your body. A common condition that may need this brace is osteoporosis. Osteoporosis increases your risk of spinal compression fractures, which may, in turn, causes pain in your upper back. In addition to osteoporosis, this brace helps treat kyphosis, degenerative disc disease, and a compression fracture.
The postural extension brace is another popular option for thoracic back pain. This brace features dual pulleys for enhanced compliance as well as conformity to your hips. This brace is easily applied just like a backpack, with shoulder straps and another strap across your stomach. There is an aluminum frame in the back, which extends up the spine for additional support. This brace can help treat kyphosis, acute pain, poor posture, compression fractures and can even be worn pre or post surgery.
