  • :? You need to look on line to see what they have to offer, most go upreal high and my dr told most people thank they are not comfortable , I end up getting lumbar brace that went up high, just look around and try them on before you get one
  • I wear a toracic brace but it was after I had my fusion.. But even though it was from right above my breast to my hips I found it very comfortable when I first had surgery because it takes the pressure of holding yourself up off of your spine.. The brace does all of the work and your spine gets to rest.. So that is me but I had also just had a huge surgery... I would try ANYTHING and EVERTYTHING possible before having a thoracic spinal fusion...
  • thank you angela for your writing...next week i will get this brace,and maybe will help...:) gretings from croatia..Damir aka. Jason ;)
