This disc unloader spine brace was designed by a leading physiatrist with the aim of relieving chronic or acute pain in the back. This can help with a number of back conditions and injuries, including the following.
This versatile spinal stenosis back brace works by shifting pressure from the lumbar discs to the abdominal region. But the lumbar spine is not the only region this stenosis back brace supports; it stretches from the sacrococcygeal junction all the way up to the ninth thoracic vertebra (T9).
The modular design of this lumbosacral belt helps ease intra-disc pressure via circumferential compression.
The brace for spondylolisthesis treatment and more also includes an extended anterior panel for additional support to the abdomen to help if one has a pendulous abdomen (when the muscular of the abdomen have greatly relaxed and sag toward the pubic region) or if one wants additional abdominal or torso support.
The rigid anterior (front) and posterior (back) plastic panels of this brace are durable and impact-resistant as well as lightweight. Behind the back panel, you can insert a large ice pack or gel pack for hot or cold therapy—a common component of back pain treatment. One 9" x 11" hot / cold gel pack is included with this brace. Extra gel packs are available for purchase. It's always beneficial to have extra gel packs so you always have a frozen pack on hand when switching out gel packs.
The sciatica back pain brace is made of soft, breathable material that is also lightweight. BraceAbility offers several braces for sciatica treatment.
The brace can easily be secured via elastic double pull and contact closures. These are located at the front of the brace for easy access.
As the lower back is responsible for supporting the entire weight of the body, it should come as no surprise this can take up a toll on the structures that make up that area of the body—fracturing vertebra, causing discs to bulge, narrowing space in the spine, pressuring the nerves in the area, etc. And as you might imagine, some of these occurrences can lead to additional pain-causing conditions and complications.

Wearing a lumbosacral spine orthotic can help reduce pressure on the spine, stopping or slowing the escalation of problems and even allowing healing to take place in some cases. Physical therapy to strengthen and improve the flexibility of one’s core can also help diminish back problems.
In the event that the back injury is not one where healing takes place, like spondylolisthesis, and surgery is necessary, this lumbosacral spine brace is also an ideal post-operative support. In such cases, its capacity to hold ice and heat gel packs are especially a bonus.
The front closures of the brace means one does not have to strain to apply it. And the countered plastic inserts are comfortable, as is the breathable, soft material of which the low- and mid-back brace is composed.
This back brace for stenosis, sciatica, fractures and more have a number of features that make them well suited for treatment of an array of back injuries and conditions. Some of these include:
