How Lumbar Support Will Improve Your Mobility

How Lumbar Support Will Improve Your Mobility

Before your back started hurting you probably never realized how important it is to your mobility. While back pain can be caused by various factors, most cases are caused by poor lumbar support, leading to poor posture. When your back hurts from poor lumbar support, performing simple tasks can be taxing. Getting up from a seated position? Walking long distances? Lifting heavy objects? You suddenly dread these activities. So why is lumbar support so important to your mobility?

Spine Stability

Your back muscles are critical to supporting your spine to keep you in an upright position, necessary for healthy mobility. When you experience back pain, it can indicate weak core and back muscles that can’t properly support your spine and jeopardize your ability to maintain an upright walking position. When this happens, mobility suffers. A solution to this is a high quality back brace that can make up for weak or low functioning muscles to and support your spine.  

Pain

Your back is involved in every movement you make. When it’s hurting it can hinder your ability to complete mobility related activities of daily living. Once this happens, routine tasks, like getting to the kitchen to make a sandwich, may be challenging. Your back pain may be due to your lack of lumbar support and a back brace may be the answer.  Our lumbar supporting braces are designed to target which area of your back needs the most support and we have braces that can provide lower or upper back support and full back support.  

Seated Posture

Like a majority of Americans, you probably spend a good deal of your day in a seated position. Whether at work, at home, or in the car, everyone spends a lot of time sitting. Ironically, your seated posture is critical to back and mobility health. If you’re having mobility limiting back pain it could be caused in part by poor seated posture and our back braces can help improve your seated posture by providing your back the support it needs to maintain upright posture when seated.

Takeaway

Poor lumbar support can cause back pain that hinders your mobility. A solution to this is a heavy duty back brace designed to provide targeted lumbar support.
