What is a back-support belt?
A back-support belt is usually a minimalist brace that can be easily worn underneath clothing to provide additional support for the lower back. Conditions such as sciaticasciatica, disc injuries, facet joint degeneration or spondylolysis may all benefit from additional support around the spine. Back braces are designed to be lightweight but offer comfortable protection to be worn throughout the day and allow activities such as lifting, walking and sitting to be carried out with less strain and to help guard against further injury. Back braces will help support muscles around the lower back and maintain a better posture during activities so injuries to the back can heal.
Should I sleep with a back-support belt on?
No. There is usually no need to sleep with a back support on. If you were in terrible pain and found relief this way then it could be used whilst lying down, however, there is no great advantage of wearing a back-support to sleep. Instead, a pillow may be positioned under the spine, pelvis or hips to help support the spine in a better posture.
