Why Do I Need This Back Straightener or Hunchback Brace?
Finding a medical back brace that fully and completely supports your entire spine can be a daunting and frustrating task. This back straightener for men and women can be used for many different conditions of the spine and for common injuries that occur in your back.
Some of the specific conditions this back brace vest for pain relief helps treat includes:
- Kyphosis: A common condition resulting in an exaggerated forward rounding of your upper back, neck, or thoracic region.
- Scoliosis: A curvature spine disorder in which your vertebrae curves to the side (lateral curve).
- Fractured Spine: There are many different fractures that occur in your spine including compression fractures, burst fractures, wedge compression fractures, stress fractures, and cervical fractures.
- Hyperlordosis: A condition in which there’s an abnormal inward curve in your spine.
- Spinal Stenosis: The narrowing of the open spaces in your spinal discs, leading to pressure on your spinal cord and the nerves that travel through it.
- Osteoporosis: A type of bone disease that arises when the body loses too much bone or makes too little of bone.
- Poor Posture/Hunching “Postural dysfunction” is defined as our spine is being held in an unnatural position. The result of these unnatural postures is extra stress on our joints, muscles, and vertebrae. Check out our low profile posture correction brace specifically designed to help correct your posture and lift your shoulders.
- Scheuermann’s Disease: Form of kyphosis that occurs in children or adolescents that have experienced abnormal growth patterns in their spine. Along with kyphosis, this disease is usually paired with having scoliosis.
Treatment for the conditions listed above involve reducing the amount of tension and stress placed on your spine/back. Especially if you’ve had surgery for your condition, wearing this spinal corrective device after can help tremendously during the healing process. It helps to relieve the amount of weight that your spine endures, promoting a fast recovery. The compression from the pulley system gives a high level of compression, which in turn reduces swelling and inflammation.
