Most Chiropractic Clinic Finds Back Belts Helpful While Patients Heal

“Would a back belt help me?” That’s a common question Most Chiropractic Clinic hears from Murfreesboro chiropractic patients and others in Murfreesboro who feel pain from back pain and/or leg pain. Using Murfreesboro back supports has been discussed in the medical literature, and opinion fluctuates even from healthcare provider to healthcare provider. The current literature on wearing back supports suggests that there is value and benefit to [[wearing}using]10] one for many when they have back pain. Most Chiropractic Clinic works with each individual Murfreesboro back pain sufferer to find the answer to the back support question as it concerns his/her particular condition.


Most Chiropractic Clinic has heard the worry that back supports may weaken muscles. However, current research indicates that using a back brace doesn’t conclusively cause muscle weakness. (1) Elastic lumbar belts improved muscle strengthening, flexibility of lower extremities, flexion, and activities of daily living as well as decreased pain for low back pain patients. (2)


Most Chiropractic Clinic promotes activity while healing along with rest as needed. Long past are the days of passive lying around for most Murfreesboro back pain patients to recover which is why Most Chiropractic Clinic recommends gentle, tolerable activity to patients even though they may be worried about moving and evoking pain. That’s where back belts become useful. Wearing a lumbar belt improves the functional status, pain level and pain medication use. (3) Back braces reduced pain and fear of pain in back pain patients. (4) Wearing a rigid back brace for three months helped 79% of patients with chronic low back pain experience 30% reduction in pain. (5) A soft lumbosacral support is more successful than a rigid one for posture control and pain control. (6) Most Chiropractic Clinic likes support belts that are comfortable and supportive.


Most Chiropractic Clinic takes care of many Murfreesboro stenosis patients every day! Spinal stenosis produces back pain and occasionally other problems for which a back support is beneficial. Having spinal stenosis patients with intermittent claudication wear a low back brace produced reduced lordosis (spine curvature) and significant improvement in walking distance of at least 30% improvement in 82% of the patients. (7) 30% is a respectable clinical outcome! Medicine says that 30% improvement makes an intervention worthwhile to use. (8) Back braces may be helpers for Murfreesboro back pain patients!
