So, you want to show the guys you can still hang with the best of them on the court, but your back pain is limiting you to the sidelines? It’s a familiar story, but fortunately there is relief. Of course there are a whole myriad of creams, medicines, anti-inflammatories and other options that you can take for back pain, but the problem with this is that they simply mask the pain and don’t provide a real solution.
When the pain is masked, you can make the underlying problem a bigger issue because of the continuous damage that is taking place to your spine, tendons, ligaments, and muscles. One method that is natural and won’t just mask the problem is using a back brace. When you use a brace, it helps to limit the motion of your spine during activity, therefore preventing you from over exerting and further injuring yourself. The extra support helps to carry the work for your ligaments, tendons and muscles so that they don’t have to work as hard, keeping them from wearing out more quickly.
Of the court, a back brace can help stabilize and support your lower back and abdomen. This will help your posture and in turn alleviate your lower back pain on a more continual basis by training your muscles to support themselves. This, coupled with guidance from your physician, and maintaining healthy habits may just be the remedy that you need.
