Lordosis is a very common issue that affects people on all different levels. It occurs when the spine is out of alignment, leaning forward and throwing off the posture of the person affected. Some people only have a mild problem that causes the occasional twinge of back and shoulder pain, while for others it's so serious they can't stand without feeling the pain run along their back.
Physiotherapy and strengthening can help, but for many people, wearing a lordosis back brace provides immediate and lasting relief. Bauerfeind's range of lordosis back braces take this one step further, by not only alleviating the symptoms but actively supporting the back to correct posture and prevent further deterioration of the joint.
While the risk of reliance is present, it's minimised thanks to our anatomic fit and muscular stimulation. It's important to make sure you combine this with targeted strengthening and exercises to make sure that over time, your back becomes stronger and properly aligned for long-term spinal health.
Simply put, Bauerfeind have set the global standard for medical braces, compression and insoles.

There's no substitute for quality, and Bauerfeind have that from the simplest strap to the largest brace.
Bauerfeind's high quality construction and design mean that all of our products go the distance, especially when cared for properly. Below is a rough outline of how long products last before they start to lose their effectiveness over time.
