When it comes to arthritis, the spine is the last place you want it. Causing pain and stiffness with virtually any movement, seated or standing, it can cause a lot of discomfort. If you're looking for a back support for osteoarthritis, then Bauerfeind has you covered.
With simple supports for milder cases that come and go, to more complex and stable braces for the chronic cases of arthritis in the back, Bauerfeind have the best in arthritis relief for the back.
Will these change my posture?
When arthritis affects the spine, your muscles and joints start to shift in position as your body adjusts to avoid pain and inflammation. This often leads to poor posture and increasing back problems. Our range of back supports are designed to change your posture for the better, restoring healthy spinal positioning and minimising the inflammation and pain that cause the problem in the first place.
Will these weaken my muscles?
While cheaper and less effective braces can cause an issue known as reliance (where the muscles become weaker and rely on the brace), Bauerfeind have perfected the blend of stability and movement. By restricting or immobilising specific parts of the ankle that need it, and freeing up the rest, you can continue to exercise, building and maintaining strength in the joint.
Can I wear these all day?
Virtually all our medical supports are designed to be worn for any length of time, whether it's half an hour after exercise to recover the muscle, or first thing in the morning to last thing at night.
How do I take care of these products?
Virtually all of our products can be machine washed on a cold gentle cycle and air dried out of direct sunlight. Putting them on and taking them off carefully is recommended, and for specific product care, refer to the product manual or contact our friendly staff.
What is the warranty for these products?
All supports and insoles come with a 12 month warranty, and compression stockings with a 3 month warranty for any manufacturers faults. At any point if you've got issues with the product or aren't sure if something is wrong, just contact our helpful staff.
How do I know they'll fit?
Bauerfeind have an incredibly extensive sizing system for our products based off of hundreds of thousands of patient measurements. The perfect anatomic fit system we use means that the supports are designed to fit your body, not the other way around. (We also offer custom options for a range of our products for those rare few who still can't fit into our sizing range).
