Spinal Brace designs can vary in the area of the spine they support and in the degrees of support they provide. More rigid forms of bracing reduce and immobilise the spine more effectively and can assist following acute injury or surgery. Spinal Orthoses can reduce flexibility and muscular strength if worn for extended periods of time. It is important to maintain natural flexibility and strength for the condition of your spine. For these reasons it is important to only use your Spinal Brace under the direction of your Physiotherapist, Specialist or Medical Practitioner.
