Correction & Confidence Building Postural Thoracic Kyphosis Brace
We know how unpleasant the pain that comes along with bad posture, kyphosis, and lordosis can be. However, one of the worst factors that join that pain when we have bad posture is the lowering levels of self-confidence. Our lumbar kyphosis support helps you get back not only your pain-free life and corrected posture but your confidence as well.
Does This Posture Support Help with Parkinson’s Disease?
Parkinson’s disease will ultimately take over the control of your automatic activities, such as good posture. The change in your posture may occur without you even being aware of it, due to the lack of the brain’s automatic reminders to stand or sit up straight. Whether it’s stooped shoulders or a decreased back curve causing you to look hunched over, this full back brace can correct unhealthy posture.
If you want to learn more about your posture and what may be causing a hunched posture effect, check out the conditions that cause postural issues.
How Does This Hunchback Corrector Help With Kyphosis?
There are many types of kyphosis ranging from postural to Scheuermann’s. The pain associated with this condition, no matter the type, deals with a hunched back or slouching due to excessive curving of the upper back (thoracic). Kyphosis can be a very frustrating condition to deal with, as the treatment is not one singular quick fix. Our kyphosis corrector vest holds your spine straight, pulling back your shoulders to help take pressure off of the vertebrae, providing a non-surgical route to treat the slouching pain. Devices such as this TLSO turtle shell brace are created to help you relieve your pain and get back to life!
Kyphosis vs Lordosis: What’s The Difference?
Lordosis and kyphosis are very similar conditions, both dealing with excessive curvature in the spine. The difference between the two lies within where the curve is located on the spine. Kyphosis is common in older women and often related to osteoporosis. If you have kyphosis, the curve will be located in your upper back. Lordosis may be inherited or caused by conditions such as arthritis, muscular dystrophy, and dwarfism. If you have lordosis, the curve will be located in your lower back.

This brace is helping me with compression fractures on my spine and is well made and helps support me so that I do not get muscle spasms. I use it when having to move around a lot, but I make sure to take it off quite often and do some deep breathing, which is important since all braces rather restrict our breathing. The customer service was excellent and compassionate.
Great, ordered and received first brace within a few days. It was to large, so easy return and exchange within a week for correct one.
Good, comfortable and did the job
