For people over fifty, osteoporosis is more than just another word, but a very likely problem. Affecting more than one third of women over 50, and one fifth of men in the same bracket, fractures caused by this condition are relatively common. while supplements and exercises can help to an extent, when there are previous or current fractures, wearing an osteoporosis back brace is one of the best things to do.
Bauerfeind have an extensive range of braces and supports for the spine, from a simple sacral belt to a complete brace that protects and supports the entire spine, top to bottom. If you're looking for an osteoporosis brace, then there's no better place for one than Bauerfeind.
Will these effectively help me recover from my issues?
Each and every person is differe, from their anatomy and injury/issue to their lifestyle and general health. While there are so many variables when it comes to health and wellbeing, Bauerfeind are constant in the supports, relief and protection they provide across our range.
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.
