The Lumbosacral Support is a corset type orthosis often prescribed for relief of low back pain associated with degenerative disc disorders, trauma, or postural deformities.
Corsets are typically made of cotton and nylon materials. Corsets are used to de-weight spinal structures by increasing abdominal compression. Rigid stays and inserts can be added to restrict motion and act as a postural reminder. Most corsets are pre-fabricated and custom fit and modified to the patient’s specific needs.
