Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation Finds Back Belts Helpful While Patients Heal

“Would a back belt help me?” That’s a common question Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation hears from Tonawanda chiropractic patients and others in Tonawanda who feel pain from back pain and/or leg pain. Wearing Tonawanda back supports has been deliberated in the medical literature, and opinion fluctuates even from doctor to doctor. The recent information on wearing back supports suggests that it’s worthwhile and beneficial to use one for many when they have back pain. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation consults with each individual Tonawanda back pain sufferer to find the answer to the back support question as it pertains to his/her particular situation.

BACK BRACES AND MUSCLE TONE

Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation has heard the idea that back supports may weaken muscles. However, current research alludes that using a back brace doesn’t conclusively cause muscle weakness. (1) Elastic lumbar belts increased muscle strengthening, flexibility of lower extremities, flexion, and activities of daily living as well as reduced pain for low back pain patients. (2)

BACK SUPPORTS AND CONFIDENCE IN DAILY ACTIVITY

Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation encourages activity while healing along with rest as needed. Long gone are the days of passive bedrest for most Tonawanda back pain patients to recover which is why Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation suggests gentle, tolerable activity to patients even though they may be worried about moving and evoking pain. That’s where back belts become useful. Wearing a lumbar belt betters the functional status, pain level and pain medication use. (3) Back braces reduced pain and fear of pain in back pain patients. (4) Wearing a rigid back brace for three months helped 79% of patients with chronic low back pain experience 30% less pain. (5) A soft lumbosacral support is more successful than a rigid one for posture control and pain control. (6) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation likes support belts that are comfortable and supportive.

BACK BRACES HELP STENOSIS PAIN

Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation takes care of many Tonawanda stenosis patients daily! Spinal stenosis triggers back pain and occasionally other issues for which a back support is beneficial. Having spinal stenosis patients with intermittent claudication wear a low back brace produced reduced lordosis (spine curvature) and significant improvement in walking distance of at least 30% improvement in 82% of the patients. (7) 30% is a good clinical outcome! Medicine finds that 30% improvement makes an intervention worthy of use. (8) Back braces may be helpers for Tonawanda back pain patients!
