Acute lower back pain – causes and treatment options
Don’t let back pain slow you down. Almost 80% of Americans will experience back pain at least once in their lives*, and it can knock you off your feet. With a full line of back braces and supports, Bauerfeind has the right solution for you.
Bauerfeind’s lightweight, breathable back braces provide stability while allowing for full range of motion and encouraging abdominal and back extensor muscle activity. Strategically placed gel pads with friction nubs provide a massage effect in targeted areas to relieve pain, reduce muscle spasm and increase circulation.
The net gain? Less pain. More stability. Bauerfeind back braces and supports give you the confidence to do what moves you.
