I've been pondering over this one for a bit and having trouble finding info online that looks legitimate. But after opinions on whether anybody thinks a corset (obviously not fully tightened for waist training, but firm) would protect the back with a herniated disc or disc issues?
Unfortunately I've just had a discectomy on my l4/l5 and I'm currently in a brace whenever I get out of bed for support. Obviously once I'm a bit further down my recovery road building core strength is my main priority and a corset would hinder that, but would it be an awful idea for during work hours (desk job. I am diligent with posture but I'm only human and I get tired or bend stupidly sometimes).
I just want to protect my back. I'm 27, and horrified I've had to go through this at a young age. But I'm also a corset fan so kind of wondering if 2 birds 1 stone or just an awful idea altogether. Haha.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
