Unloading Brace for the Knee
Back Bracing for Pain Relief
There are two types of back braces. One back brace is used to correct spine curvature by straightening the spine. The other type of back brace helps stabilize the core muscle groups around the spine to promote healing, avoid further injury and reduce pain. The stabilizing brace is often utilized in combination with our VAX-D Decompression Treatments and physical therapy.
Depending on the area of stress, stabilizing back braces are selected and fitted to help the following conditions:
- Herniated Disks
- Degenerative Disk Disease
Call today to schedule a back pain relief appointment and let us help you as we have countless others. Listen to several patients who have shared their back therapy experience at Physicians Rehabilitation on video.
Neck braces stabilize your cervical spine after a neck injury, neck surgery or to avoid neck surgery. For those who also suffer with herniated, bulging disks or degenerative disc disease the neck is supported in addition to back bracing as a part of the treatment program. Braces for the neck range from the stiffest brace that allow little to no neck movement to more pliable supporting braces for soft tissue healing.
For injuries such as a relatively stable cervical fracture, cervical fusion surgery, a cervical strain or as part of a broader disc-related treatment, a rigid collar that attaches with Velcro on each side is typically worn continually until your physician recommends removal.
Common causes of cervical (neck) injuries include:
- Falls – primarily seen in seniors
- Sports Related Accidents – Weekend Warriors
- Osteoporosis causing a fractured or collapsed vertebra
- Herniated, bulging discs or degenerative disc disease
