Impact of Lower Back Pain
Lower back pain can have a wide variety of causes. Spinal injuries like a herniated disc or compression fractures can lead to chronic lower back pain, just as as overuse and aging do. The impact of lower back pain is extensive. It can spread to the legs and even cause numbness if left untreated. Lower back pain can dramatically reduce range of movement, and the ability to pursue normal activities or sleep.
Lower Back Pain Treatment
Lower back pain treatment methods can vary greatly. Experts recommend pain medicine, physical therapy, and rest in order to reduce pain. Good support provided by the wearing of a back brace can also alleviate irritation.
How FitBrace Can Help
FitBrace’s innovative technology allows the wearer to have improved support, as well as adds the ability to treat the area with cold or heat therapy.
The gel pack that comes with each FitBrace can be microwaved or frozen and then reinserted into the brace to relieve lower back pain. By utilizing heat or cold therapy, FitBrace wearers can experience pain relief with all the support that a normal back brace would provide. This adaptable brace allows the user to enjoy a daily routine without the need to switch between a pain relief device, and a back support brace.
It is important to remember to be examined by a physician if you are experiencing lower back pain. Only they can determine a treatment plan or recommend surgery, if needed. Never undergo a treatment regimen without speaking to a doctor first.
