TIP OF THE MONTH:
Wear a Back Support
Low back pain patients may benefit from wearing a lumbar support belt. New research shows that a lumbar support belt doesn’t necessarily cause muscle weakness but rather improves walking distance ability for spinal stenosis patients with intermittent claudication, reduces pain and fear of pain, decreases use of pain medications, and increases muscle strength, flexibility, and activities of daily living. (3-10) All good! Your chiropractor carefully considers the use of back braces for back pain patients as they heal knowing the benefits back braces may provide.
