RiptGear® Back Brace Support Guide

Your back supports your body and head. It is one of the most dynamic areas in your body and demands daily movement and flexibility. We understand the importance of back support and know that one of the most critical elements to the strength and flexibility of your back is a well-supported spine.

If your spine is out of alignment, your back will be off-balance and can become tired and sore by the end of the day. Your doctor may suggest you try a back brace to retrain your muscles to properly hold your back in place.  RiptGear® lower back braces can help support your back with the goal of reducing back pain.

It is vital to follow your doctor's orders when wearing a brace of any kind. Many braces are adjustable, and you will want to adjust them to the perfect fit and compression for you. Not only does your spine support your entire back, but it also contains your spinal column through which nerves travel to other areas of your body.

Back Brace Support

Are you looking to alleviate back pain that distracts you from your day? An adjustable back brace can help support your back and aid in reducing pain. Our team at RiptGear® has designed an adjustable brace that gives you the flexible fit you need. We offer our braces in (6) sizes to be sure you get the perfect fit. Our material is both comfortable and supportive so that you can easily wear it all day long.

Our braces help support your back and core muscles, allowing them to relax and heal if they’ve been injured. Common pain sources that our customers experience include, an unsupported mattress, healing from an injury, strain from living heavy items, and strain from overuse.

Back Brace for Pain

Our RiptGear® braces are fully adjustable to help you feel comfortable as you go about your day.

We are adamant that our lower back braces are manufactured using high-quality materials. Our goal is to bring our customers a high-quality back brace for added back support. While our back brace can help, please consult a doctor or trained professional for the best advice. There are many factors that contribute to back pain: lack of exercise, extra weight, poor sleeping positions, poor posture, the way you lift, and what you lift. Studies have shown that a back brace’s immobilizing design can reduce back pain.[I]

RiptGear Back Braces

Many jobs require you to be on your feet all day or to lift heavy objects. RiptGear® back braces are designed using the latest technology to help support your back and ease your pain.

Construction, nursing, landscaping, and even desk jobs can contribute to back pain. Desk jobs that cause you to be sedentary for long periods can also contribute to back pain.  If you experience any type of back pain from work, a back brace can help.

Your back can quickly become strained, causing cramped and sore muscles. You can also throw your back out if you lift something improperly. Because of this, workplaces are required to post proper lifting techniques, especially warehouses, where bulk-shipment lifting occurs.

There are many jobs that can contribute to back pain, including:

  • Desk jobs
  • Cashiers
  • Landscapers
  • Construction Workers

Managing Back Pain

Back pain can develop in a wide variety of ways. Maybe you twisted your back the wrong way picking up something heavy, or maybe you are coping with degenerative arthritis. Either way, back pain can be challenging to deal with and control.

Severe back pain can entail tingling, numbness, and weakness.  If the pain is severe, be sure to call your doctor right away. For mild to moderate back pain, try these tips to help reduce discomfort.

    • Stretch – Many people spend hours a day sitting at a desk. Sitting at a desk causes your body to fall forward, which in turn causes your neck, head, and shoulders to fall out of alignment. Walking and stretching, a minimum of once an hour for a minute or two will help.  So will stretching backward. Wearing a posture corrector can also help train your muscles to keep your head and body from slouching forward.
    • Wear flat shoes – Heeled shoes can put your spine’s natural curves out of alignment, which leads to poor posture and back pain. Flat shoes with good arch support allow your feet to keep their natural positioning and support your back. Flat shoes will also help your knees and ankles to stay pain-free.
    • Lose weight – Excess weight adds stress to your spine and the muscles attached to it. This stress can pull your muscles unevenly, causing pain and discomfort. Aim to hold your body as evenly as possible.
    • Take non-prescription pain relievers – Anti-inflammatory medicines can help curb back pain. However, these are not meant to be taken long term and should only be used periodically.  Consult your doctor before taking any medication to discuss any interactions it may have with other medications you are taking.
    • Stop smoking – Smoking can contribute to back pain. Smoking increases your risk for bone complications such as osteoporosis. Osteoporosis weakens your back, which can lead to spinal fractures.  Overall, smokers report that they experience more back pain than non-smokers.

How Does a Back Brace Work?

A back brace can help support your back to reduce pain, keep your trunk and core aligned, and give you a boost of confidence to perform your daily tasks.  Scholarly research shows that a back brace improves the somatosensory information received by the central nervous system and results in less error in trunk positioning.[i]

Well-designed back braces keep your trunk stable and are made of adjustable materials to give you the support you need without needing to adjust throughout the day. The metal lumbar support bars in our high-quality braces come sewn into the material. The position of the supports is at the base of your spine to help promote good posture.

 

How to Wear a Back Brace

Our lower back brace design wraps around your body and adjusts via a series of fasteners and straps. Our back braces are designed to support your back and reduce pain. Tighten and adjust the straps and fasteners until you feel adequate back support and adequate pain relief.  It can help to have a partner or a friend wrap the brace around you if you have mobility issues that restrict your movements.

Another option to put on your RiptGear® back brace is to wrap it around your body while you are sitting in a chair. With this method, the chair helps hold the brace in place until you get it fastened.

 

Back Brace for Posture

There are three curves in your spine, one in your neck, one in your middle back, and one in your lower back. These three curves need to be in perfect alignment to maintain good posture. If these curves fall out of their natural positioning, the rest of your spine will follow and become misaligned.

Even simple activities can misalign your three spinal curves and cause your spine to move out of alignment. Slouching at a desk is a common contributor to a misaligned spine and poor posture.

Posture refers to the way you hold your body, and there are two types.

  1. Static Posture refers to how you hold your body when you are standing still, sitting, or sleeping.
  2. Dynamic Posture is the way you hold your body when you are walking, cleaning, working, running, or any other way you move your body throughout the day.

Both types of posture are essential to good health, and both stem from proper spine alignment.

Good posture is essential because it can directly affect your health.  Poor posture can lead to

  • Neck and Shoulder Pain
  • Decreased Flexibility
  • Non-Limber Joints
  • Difficulty Breathing
  • Deterioration of Cartilage

Lower Back Brace

There are many ways to improve posture if you spend much of your day sitting. Sitting for long periods is the leading cause of poor posture.

  • Take a brief walk once an hour
  • Periodically stretch backward to counteract hunching forward
  • Sit with your legs straight and not crossed
  • Keep your shoulders relaxed
  • Be sure that your hips are supported on a soft sitting surface

Staying active and working to maintain a healthy weight is also essential.  Any exercise will help you improve your posture, even exercises as simple as stretching or walking.  Keeping your joints limber will keep your body from becoming stiff and immobile.

Back Brace for Work

At RiptGear®, we strive to find ways to help protect and heal athletes and everyday workers. Our adjustable compression Lower Back Brace can help provide support for recurring injuries and prevent new ones from developing. If you already have or are worried about getting a back injury at work, it is important to take the proper steps to protect your back.  Getting the best back brace to help you stay healthy and mobile is very important.

 

FAQs          

What is a back brace?  A back brace is a product designed to help support your back.  Most commonly, they are used to support your lower back, although upper back braces exist as well.  Upper back braces are often referred to as posture correctors.  Back braces can help people who are sedentary or who sit for long periods of time at a desk for school or for work.  Back braces can also help people who are recovering from injuries or who have chronic back pain caused by conditions such as sciatica, herniated discs, and scoliosis.

How does a back brace help scoliosis? Scoliosis is defined as at least a 10-degree lateral curve of the spine.  A lateral curve is any sideways curve. Unfortunately, a lateral curve does not always improve unless surgery is performed, but wearing a back brace can help effectively keep the curve manageable and prevent it from becoming worse. A back brace can help gently pull the muscles and curved scoliosis spine back to its proper positioning.

Is it safe to wear a back brace?  Back braces are safe to use and are often the first choice before invasive solutions. It is essential to consult your doctor before choosing and using a back brace. Guidance from your doctor will be critical in determining your course of action. Be sure to periodically take your back brace off to allow your skin to breathe and prevent rashes and other skin irritations from developing. Many people prefer to wear their back brace over a thin shirt to place a barrier between the brace and their body.

How do I care for my back brace? It is imperative that you wash your back brace periodically. This will help to keep it clean and sanitary. Back braces are not machine washable. Use a damp cloth and mild detergent. Wet the cloth, add a small amount of detergent, and wipe away any dirt or buildup. Continue until the entire brace has been wiped down. You can wipe again with clean water to remove any detergent left behind.
