The lower back supports the spine and your entire upper body. The low back is prone to injury because nearly every movement and activity uses the muscles, ligaments and bones in the lower back. Jobs that involve repeated lifting or sports that twist your back frequently, such as golfing, can put your lower lumbar region or low back at risk for injury. Many women also complain about lower back pain during pregnancy or post-partum. Wearing a back brace
or belt to support your lower back can help you prevent strain or added pressure to your spine. A low back or TLSO brace can also help keep your back in the proper position and provide compression to help torn back ligaments. Shop different types of back supports for both men and women.
