There are many different types of back pain, perhaps the most common is lower back, or lumbar pain. This type usually starts midway down your spine and extends to the sacrum. There are multiple causes for lumbar pain, some have to do with the way we stand, others with the way we walk or sit. Since your lumbar area supports the bunt of your weight it is more susceptible to pain than other areas. If you are experiencing lower back pain it may be time to consider a back brace to assist in relieving your back pain.
Just as there are many types of back pain there are also various types of back braces designed to target specific areas of your back. For targeting lower back pain, a lumbar support brace is your best option. A lumbar support brace can be as simple as a wraparound stability band to control unwanted movement of your torso. There are also lumbar support braces that come with hard plastic inserts that can be placed in the back of the brace to enhance stability. These inserts can come at different heights to reach your mid back which can provide extra support, but are most often utilized for recovery from surgery or injury to your back. However if your pain is severe you may want to speak with your doctor about a more advanced back brace.
