    The support you get is way too important

    The only rationale way to get a back brace is to have your doctor recommend one. Over the years, I have had several back braces, all recommended by my doctor and fitted specifically for me by medical professionals.

    You dont just want to get a generic brace.

    but they were used mostly for dealing with flare ups. On a normal course, I would not wear a brace. Instead I would do the stretching and exercises to help build up my muscles to take some strain off of my back. That works the best
