It sounds like an old-fashioned term from the days of yore in medicine, but wearing a corset for back pain relief is still one of the best ways to protect and support your spine for particular issues. When there's muscle weakness in the core, spinal posture issues or nerve issues affecting control of the muscles, wearing a lower back corset helps to correct posture and compensate for the lack of stability.
Bauerfeind have perfected the back pain corset with anatomical fit, medical design and world-class German engineering.
Aren't corsets only for women?
While the corset as a fashion item was popularised in Victorian England, it's been used for medical support of the spine for centuries across the world. Whether you call it a corset, girdle, brace or support, using firm flexible splints to support and stabilise the spine is still one of the best ways to address many back problems.
