Back Braces + DME

According to recent research, back pain is the leading cause of disability worldwide. Near the site of lower back pain, the muscles can become overworked as they tighten to prevent further damage. This can cause muscle spasms, pain, inflammation, and instability in the area.

A back brace is a medical device designed to provide support and stability to the spine, typically used to manage various spinal conditions or injuries.

DME stands for Durable Medical Equipment and refers to medical equipment prescribed by a healthcare provider for home use, such as braces, wheelchairs, walkers, etc.
