This thoracic brace controls the mid and lumbar spine via a three-point system and can help with many spinal conditions or anomalies, including:
This CASH (cruciform anterior spinal hyperextension orthosis) back brace controls unintended thoracic flexion and promotes good spinal alignment. The three-point system of this rigid brace offers a triplanar control which allows it to do so.
The rigid anterior (front) portion of the frame stretches vertically from the symphysis pubis (between the hips) to the sternal notch. It also has pads on either side of your midsection and a back support pad. This combination limits spinal flexion as well as other motion of your trunk.
The lower pad is articulating, meaning it can move with your body. The upper pad can be adjusted to be either fixed or articulating, depending upon your preference and/or a doctor’s orders. You can also remove a screw at the top of the upper pad and remove a wedge in order to allow that pad to move.
The flexibility of the pads increase the comfort of this TLSO back support. Also, the thoracolumbar back support pad features an aluminum stay that you can customize to the curve of your spine.
The padding used in this rigid mid- and low-back support is soft as well as waterproof, making it ideal for long-term use and user comfort. (Note that a snug-fitting under shirt should be worn between the orthotic to prevent any chaffing.
You can easily adjust the height of the pads of this hyperextension back brace, by using just your hands. You can do so by pulling out an adjustment knob and adjusting the height as needed.
The alligator fastener tab around the waist of the osteoporosis back brace allows a high degree of sizing flexibility. Once you have the fit right, the excess material can be trimmed off and discarded.
Applying the osteoarthritis back brace begins with opening the latch lock of the support and passing the lumbar pad around the back while holding the belt with one hand. While holding the frame of the kyphosis back brace, you should slide the belt and attachment plate over the protruding metal tab, using the thumb of the opposite hand. You can now secure the latch lock by pushing the flat area downward.
To remove the kyphosis extension brace, you simply reverses the steps. The quick-release closure system makes application and removal quick and easy.
Thoracic, or mid-back pain is not nearly as common as discomfort of the low back or cervical spine; but that is of little comfort for those dealing with discomfort in this region. Oftentimes, muscle and soft tissue problems are to blame for mid-back pain. Imbalances, overuse, poor posture or trauma can all irritate such tissues, resulting in discomfort.
In other cases, damage to your thoracic spine may be to blame. Osteoporosis, a condition characterized by a loss of bone density, can increase your risk of spinal compression fracture. This, in turn, can diminish your height, cause back pain, and possibly lead to posture abnormalities such as the humpback curve the upper back known as kyphosis. To help correct postural kyphosis, which is caused from overtime slouching, try our posture support to help stop your condition from getting worse.
Osteoarthritis (OA) refers to degenerative joint disease that might impact your spine. Over time, the protective cartilage between the discs of the spine can wear away, causing pain and possibly pressure nerves exiting the spinal column.
Typically, you can often address mechanical back pain by lessening stress on its soft tissues (possibly via use of this upper back brace), improving form or posture, engaging in exercises to correct imbalances, etc. But those with OA and osteoporosis are less fortunate. These conditions cannot be reversed, though there are steps one can take to limit damage and slow progression of the disease. This might include wearing a back brace, such as this Cybercross orthotic.
It helps by preventing unwanted flexion of the thoracic spine and holding the back in an extended position. Doing so promotes proper spinal alignment, which also helps reduce pain.
This osteoporosis brace is a simple solution for various thoracic issues. There are many different features of this brace:
Purchased this brace after multiple thoracic fractures and it has been helpful in the healing process. The brace has reduced the pain and allows me to sit upright and go for short walks. However, and I think this would be the same for any CASH style brace, at the end of the day I can’t wait to take the brace off. I purchased the medium and should have purchased the small. The brace is fully adjustable so we just trimmed the Velcro strap around the waist and it fits perfect.
I like the new concept. However the upper portion on your chest needs more padding because it is uncomfortable when you wear it for any period of time.
My son suffered a par tens fracture as a result of a MVA. The hospital released him without telling us abot the fracture and with zero supportive devices. He didn't have insurance so they essentially shoved him out the door dragging himself with a walker. The home therapist finally disclosed the fracture and wanted him put into a clamshell brace. We had trouble finding a dme company that carried them. I came across this and the therapist thought it looked good. It came in and it was very nice quality. It has been a lifesaver for him. It provides the support he needs in turn reducing his pain and promoting healing.
Fractured two lower vertebrae and offered very strong passion relief till brace measured and fitted. Managed to reduce instantly, avoid potential addiction. On NHS, slightly different model with ratchet brackets either side, but same idea Truly builds confidence standing and moving. Helps reduce anxiety over sudden shocks by movement etc. Really helps correct posture too. You don't wear to bed, so can get plenty relief from tight grip.. And reduce gradually add needed. The ratched points on mine not the strongest and began to fail. This looks better. Fine now after six months. But handy to know available should need again. Free on NHS, guess have to pay in US. You poor folk. Free healthcare should be a right in any country.
