The BaxMAX is NOT a normal back brace.
Back braces have been around for 60+ years and most people have put one on at one time or another. A typical back brace uses elastic to tighten around the waist and hips to create compression and stabilize the core, which in many cases can provide short-term relief for lower back pain. Back braces are also used for healing an acute lumbar issue such as a bulged/herniated disc or sciatica. Although back braces do not cure a condition, they are very useful in treatment or “healing period”. Back braces are also worn for heavy physical activities if core muscles are not strong enough to support the activity.
