Should I be wearing a back brace if I have a disc injury?
No I would not recommend a back brace to treat your injured disk. Back brace can actually make your back more weak leading to more pain. Back braces are used most often after a spine fracture or fusion surgery to provide extra stability to promote bone healing. Core strengthening though yoga or other isometric exercises would be better treatment then a back brace. For more information please contact Executive Spine Surgery. Good Luck!
