Back braces for work are an in-demand item. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, back injuries account for nearly 20% of all injuries/illnesses on the job.Wearing a back belt for lifting can lessen the strain on your back, ease existing pain, and help prevent damage to the structures of your lumbar spine.
Many men and women suffer from lower back pain due to a variety of things such as occupations that require heavy lifting, injuries such as a sprain or pulled muscle, or conditions including:
- Herniated disc
- Degenerative disc disease
If you have a job that requires lifting heavy objects frequently (for example, construction workers, movers, or warehouse workers), this brace can help reduce the pain you might be experiencing after a long day at work. These jobs can cause wear and tear on your spine, especially in your lower back region. This wear and tear can ultimately leave you more prone to other injuries or conditions, which may even eventually require surgery. Therefore, having the correct form can be extremely important for your overall health.
This simple back brace with suspenders does a great job of promoting proper lifting techniques and stops you from bending or twisting at the waist.
