How Does This Brace Help Me Recover from a Lumbar Herniated Disc?

A herniated disc, also known as a slipped or ruptured disc, is a common condition, especially in older adults. The pain can be quite disruptive to your everyday 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 care for herniated and bulging discs are largely the same.

Still unsure about the difference between herniated, bulging, and ruptured discs? Check out this blog to help you differentiate between these spinal conditions.

Do I Have a Slipped or Herniated Disc?

The cause of a herniated disc in your spine or a bulging disc is often 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 your lower back.

Symptoms of a Herniated Disc

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

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

How to Care for a Herniated Disc

  1. Rest and avoid high contact sports and heavy lifting
  2. Perform therapeutic physical therapy exercises
  3. Use heat and ice therapy to reduce inflammation and soothe sore tissues
  4. Talk to your doctor about injections or surgery
  5. Buy a high-quality mattress for disc herniation

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

This at-home decompression back brace offers 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 device extend to your T9 vertebrae, the traction brace can also help with a herniated disc in your middle or upper back.

5 Reasons People Love This Decompression Back Brace

  1. Front and Back Panels Provide Maximum Support

    The combination of anterior (front) and posterior (back) panels provides optimal compression and stabilization, which reduces pressure on your spine by shifting some of the load to your abdomen and improving your posture. The inserts are made of a lightweight, heavy-duty plastic that is durable, impact- and heat-resistant. Anatomically designed, the medical-grade inserts support the natural curve of your spine for a comfortable fit! Although we recommend leaving them in, except when washing, 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.

  2. Comfortable and Breathable Material

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

  3. Easy Application

    Secured via fasteners, which makes the application process for this decompression belt for lower back pain fairly simple. However, for the best fit and easiest application, you may want someone to help you put on the brace, especially the first time. If you have limited upper body strength or arthritis, make sure to use the convenient hand loops. Elastic double-pull tabs make it easy to achieve a secure and custom 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.

  4. Pocket for Removable Hot or Cold Pack

    A reusable gel pack is also included with this stabilizer for ruptured disc care, providing your choice of cold or heat therapy. Such therapy can be essential for the healing process of your herniated disc condition. Applying an ice pack to your back will help reduce uncomfortable swelling and inflammation. Whereas, applying a heating pad helps promote blood flow and relaxes your muscles. You can remove the gel pack depending on the stage of recovery you’re currently in. Consult with your doctor for further guidance.

      Absolute for lower back problems!

      I'm a well driller by profession and lift heavy objects. I have ZERO pain once it's in place. It hugs my body tight. I only wear it for a few hours at a time and it cures my issues for a few days it seems. Its comfortable enough to wear all day though. I'm like most, skeptical at first, but it's second to none!


      Hi Mark, I am so glad this back brace brings you comfort and protects your back all day. Thank you for telling us about your experience with it. I am sure others will appreciate it as well. Tara - Customer Care Team

      Very Good

      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.


      Love this brace

      I've been suffering for weeks with glute and IT Band pain radiating to my ankle. I thought it was sciatica and was giving it time to heal. I eventually went to the doctor and eventually had an MRI because it wasn't getting any better. The report read I have a significant bulging disc greater than 10mm at the L-S1 level. This brace didn't make the pain go away 100%, but it definitely provides me with great support and my even poorer posture because of pain feels better, and I have also noticed the radiating pain down to my ankle is more tolerable. I've recommended this website to many people in just the few days that I have owned this. Thank you!

      Wonderful back brace

      I broke my back, L3 vertebrae was smashed. The brace the doc gave me was uncomfortable and made me walk funny, this brace is much better, curves with my back, I can walk better and posture is better too. I didn’t really need the support in the front but you cannot wear it without it. It does feel more comfortable tho . Definitely recommend this brace for all back issues.


      Thanks so much for your feedback and we are glad to hear this brace is working much better for you! We hope you have a speedy recovery from your smashed vertebrae and please let us know if you have any other questions. Thank you again for your comment. BraceAbility Customer Care Team

      Unbelievable !!

      I'm a real customer. I have 4 degenerated vertebra. I just received this back brace. Words can't describe how much of my pain is relieved! It's easy to put on. There IS a demo to do that which is so helpful. But I could put the brace on w/o at it again. I can even sit down with it on with no problem. Bingo!
