Spinal bracing, also known as orthosis, is a support that you wear on your back. There are different types available that have a range of uses including preventing excessive joint movement after an injury, improving joint alignment, and reducing joint pain or muscle tension. They work by reducing pressure on your muscles to support your spine.

At Back Care Online, we supply spinal bracing manufactured by Thuasne, a European leader in medical devices.

HOW TO WEAR A SPINAL BRACE

How you wear spinal bracing will depend on which type you have although most of them are strapped around your lower back and waist. It’s recommended that you wear a layer of clothing between the spinal brace and your skin to keep you comfortable.

To clean a brace you can use a damp cloth and dry with a towel.
