Orthopedic Back Bracing in Clearwater

Limiting Motion of the Spine to Promote Healing

Braces are designed to limit the motion of the spine. Reducing motion enhances the healing process for many conditions, and will usually help decrease the patient’s pain and discomfort.

Wearing a back brace is an effective way to reduce back and neck pain.

Back braces help relieve pain and discomfort by reducing motion and providing additional support for the spine. They can be recommended for patients suffering from acute or chronic pain.

By limiting the range of motion, braces alleviate stress and pressure allowing natural healing to take effect.

Types of Back Braces

Braces come in a variety of options. From extremely rigid, to soft, to custom fitted orthotics, the team at CSI can help determine the right fit for you.

Rigid Braces

Most commonly used after surgical procedure or to heal broken bones. These braces restrict approximately 50% of the patients spinal motion.

Elastic Braces (Corset Braces)

These braces allow more movement than rigid braces, but still aid in reducing motion of the spine. These braces can be used in post-procedure healing as well as treating spinal conditions, preventative treatment, pain management and more.
