Today we will talk about Lumbar Sacral Orthosis or LSO’s. An LSO is a brace that wraps around the waist, attaches with Velcro, and has a tightening system that pulls the tummy in and pushes the lumbar section of the spine, the low back, into anywhere from 15 degrees to 25 degrees of extension, creating optimal curvature of the spine. This takes stress off the vertebrae and relieves back pain. These are great for anyone with chronic low back pain, lumbar muscle weakness, Lumbar sprains and Strains, degenerative disc disease, lumbar arthritis, and many other low back problems. Highland Orthopedic Supply carries LSO’s from brands such as Aspen, Bauerfeind, Breg, and DeRoyal.
