Benefits of a Back Brace for Truck Drivers

If you work in the trucking industry, it is important to be aware of the health issues you can face and ways to stay safe on the job. Driving a large truck for long periods of time can take a significant physical toll. Many truck drivers experience neck and back pain from sitting for long periods of time or carpal tunnel syndrome and shoulder pain from steering their truck.

Causes of Back Injuries

Staying in good physical health, stretching, and taking regular rest breaks can help prevent repetitive stress injuries. Carrying or lifting heavy objects has the potential to result in serious back injuries. Many truckers become injured after dropping a heavy object or slipping/tripping while loading or unloading their truck. These injuries can be prevented by using the appropriate equipment and safety gear, which is where Aeroflow Healthcare can help.

Back Brace Benefits

To stay healthy and pain-free, truckers should wear back braces, get assistance from others when needed, and use mechanical aids to help lift heavy loads. Back braces allow truckers to avoid further injury. There are many brands of back braces on the market which can make finding a quality brace a difficult task. Aspen Medical back braces are some of the best on the market.

Aeroflow Healthcare provides a variety of back braces to meet all of your medical needs. These braces are lightweight and are designed with moisture-wicking material and breathable zones for maximum comfort and minimum skin irritation.

The most popular Aspen back braces are the Horizon 637, which is great for post-operative patients in need of lateral support. We also offer bracing options by Delco Innovations so you can find the perfect solution for your specific needs.
