How does this relate to Back Bracing?

There are multiple reasons clinics are incorporating LSO back​
braces into care plans for patients with low back problems:

One major reason is to assist a patient with managing their pain at​
home during the duration of care-- and to decrease the​
dependence on Tylenol or Advil.

Patients who are given an effective tool for pain management by​
their doctor are less likely to seek out a harmful solution to​
provide them with relief.

More than 191 million opioid prescriptions were dispensed to​
American patients in 2017. 66% of these prescriptions were for​
conditions often associated with pain (most commonly, back​

A study conducted in 2015 showed that the #1 source for misused​
pain relievers was obtainment from a friend or relative. The vast​
majority of which were provided to the user for free, or taken​
without permission.
57% of these individuals using pain killers without a prescription​
were first time users.
Providing a low back pain patient with an LSO brace in many
cases will curb the patient's pain enough to steer them clear of​
pain relievers while you work to correct the underlying issue.

How does a back brace relieve pain so effectively?

The pulley system included within an LSO back brace creates a​
resistive force on low back load to decrease such load, allowing​
the muscles to relax and the trunk to be supported.
While it is of top priority to identify and correct the​
underlying issue causing a patient's pain, it cannot​
be overlooked that the demand for pain relief in today's​
society is higher than ever. When a patient comes​
into an office for help with their pain, this is an​
opportunity to not only fix them-- but to steer them​
away from possibly dangerous medications in the meantime.
