Everyday use of your back brace can help reduce back pain and restore quality to your everyday life. The advantages of using a back brace for exercise or strenuous activities is well known, but the advantages of a back brace for non-active lifestyles are not as often spoken about.
For starters, wearing a back brace helps with posture. Posture is crucial for back health because it helps to keep the spine in its aligned position. When you keep your spine balanced and aligned it relieves pain from building due to dispersing pressure evenly across your spine.
By wearing a back brace, it is easier to maintain proper posture. Think of it as training wheels on a bicycle. Eventually, your body gets trained to have good posture, because of your brace. Eventually your posture improves, and pain dissipates.
Another good thing to remember is using a back brace for everyday chores. Whether it’s lifting something off a high shelf, or moving your furniture around your house, using a brace can be an extra layer of protection to prevent over exerting yourself.
Along with wearing a brace, here are a few other tips for maintaining good back health:
1) Light daily exercise such as walking can help you maintain upright posture while also limbering your muscles and engaging your core.
2) This leads to our next point. Strengthen your core. Ask your doctor for good abdominal exercises that won’t strain your back. A strong core helps keep your body upright.
3) Work on flexibility. Tension causes tightness and tightness leads to pain. The more flexible you are the less likely your back is to hurt
4) Sleep correctly: If you sleep on your back, put a pillow under your knees. If you sleep on your side, put a pillow between your legs. Try not to sleep on your stomach!
