Your back supports your entire body and head. It is one of the most dynamic areas in your body and demands daily movement and flexibility. We at RiptGear® have researched extensively about backs. We understand the importance of back support and know that the most critical element to the strength and flexibility of your back is a well-supported spine.
If your spine is out of alignment, your back will be off-balance and can become tired and sore by the end of the day. Your doctor may suggest you try a back brace to retrain your muscles to properly hold your back in place. Our RiptGear® lower back braces can help support your back and reduce your back pain.
It is vital to follow your doctor’s orders when wearing a brace of any kind. Many braces are adjustable, and you will want to adjust it to the perfect fit and compression for you.

Managing Back Pain
Back pain can develop in a wide variety of ways. Maybe you twisted your back the wrong way picking up something heavy, or maybe you are coping with degenerative arthritis. Either way, we know that back pain can be challenging to deal with and control.
Severe back pain can entail tingling, numbness, and weakness. If the pain is severe, be sure to call your doctor right away. For mild to moderate back pain, here are a few easy tips from our RiptGear® research team that we found can reduce discomfort.
- Stretch – Many people spend hours a day sitting at a desk. Sitting at a desk causes your body to fall forward, which in turn causes your neck, head, and shoulders to fall out of alignment. Walking and stretching, a minimum of once an hour for a minute or two will help. So will stretching backward. Wearing a posture corrector can also help train your muscles to keep your head and body from slouching forward.
- Wear flat shoes – Heeled shoes can put your spine’s natural curves out of alignment, which leads to poor posture and back pain. Flat shoes with good arch support allow your feet to keep their natural positioning and support your back. Flat shoes will also help your knees and ankles to stay pain-free.
- Lose weight – Excess weight adds stress to your spine and the muscles attached to it. This stress can pull your muscles unevenly, causing pain and discomfort. Aim to hold your body as evenly as possible.
- Take non-prescription pain relievers – Anti-inflammatory medicines can help curb back pain. However, these are not meant to be taken long term and should only be used periodically. Consult your doctor before taking any medication to discuss any interactions it may have with other medications you are taking.
- Stop smoking – Smoking can contribute to back pain. Smoking increases your risk for bone complications such as osteoporosis. Osteoporosis weakens your back, which can lead to spinal fractures. Overall, smokers report that they experience more back pain than non-smokers.
How Does a Back Brace Work?
A back brace can help support your back to reduce pain, keep your trunk or core aligned, and give you a boost of confidence to perform your daily tasks. Scholarly research backs up our findings and concludes that a back brace improves the somatosensory information received by the central nervous system and results in less error in trunk positioning.[i]
RiptGear® back braces not only keep the trunk position stable but are made of quality materials and are adjustable to give you the support you need without your body needing to adjust throughout the day. The metal lumbar support in our high-quality braces come sewn into the material. The position of the supports is at the base of your spine to ensure RiptGear® back braces are the best back brace for posture
How to Wear a Back Brace
The RiptGear® style of lower back brace is wrapped around your body and adjusted via a series of fasteners and straps. Back brace lower back pain can be reduced because of the adjust-ability of our braces. You tighten and adjust the straps and fasteners until you feel good back support and adequate pain relief. It can sometimes help to have a partner or a friend wrap the brace around you if you have mobility issues that restrict your movements.
Another option to help put on your RiptGear® back brace is to wrap it around your body while you are sitting in a chair. With this method, the chair can help support the brace in place until you get it fastened.
What is a back brace? A back brace is a product designed to help support your back. Most commonly, they are used to support your lower back, although upper back braces exist as well. Upper back braces are often referred to as posture correctors. Back braces can help people who are sedentary or who sit for long periods of time at a desk for school or for work. Back braces can also help people who are recovering from injuries or who have chronic back pain caused by conditions such as sciatica, herniated discs, and scoliosis.
How does a back brace help scoliosis? Scoliosis is defined as at least a 10-degree lateral curve of the spine. A lateral curve is any sideways curve. Unfortunately, a lateral curve does not always improve unless surgery is performed, but wearing a back brace can effectively keep the curve manageable and prevent it from becoming worse. A back brace will help gently pull the muscles and curved scoliosis spine back to its proper positioning.
Is it safe to wear a back brace? The simple answer is, yes! Back braces are safe to use and are often the first choice before invasive solutions. It is essential to consult your doctor before choosing and using a back brace. Guidance from your doctor will be critical in determining your course of action. Be sure to periodically take your back brace off to allow your skin to breathe and prevent rashes and other skin irritations. Many people prefer to wear their back brace over a thin shirt to place a barrier between the brace and their body.
How do I care for my back brace? It is imperative that you wash your back brace periodically. This will help to keep it clean and sanitary. Back braces are not machine washable. You will need to use a damp cloth and mild detergent. Wet the cloth, add a small amount of detergent and wipe away any dirt or buildup. Continue until the entire brace has been wiped down. You can wipe again with clean water to remove any detergent left behind.
Back Brace for Posture
There are three curves in your spine, one in your neck, one in your middle back, and one in your lower back. These three curves need to be in perfect alignment to maintain good posture. If these curves fall out of their natural positioning, the rest of your spine will follow and become misaligned.
Even simple activities can mis-align your three spinal curves and cause your spine to move out of alignment. Slouching at a desk is one main contributor to a misaligned spine and poor posture.
Posture refers to the way you hold your body, and there are two types.
- Static Posture refers to how you hold your body when you are standing still, sitting, or sleeping.
- Dynamic Posture is the way you hold your body when you are walking, cleaning, working, running or any other way you move your body throughout the day.
Both types of posture are essential to good health, and both stem from proper spine alignment.
Good posture is essential because it can directly affect your health. Poor posture can lead to
- Neck and Shoulder Pain
- Decreased Flexibility
- Non-Limber Joints
- Difficulty Breathing
- Deterioration of Cartilage
Lower Back Brace
There are many ways to improve posture if you spend much of your day sitting. Sitting for long periods is the leading cause of poor posture.
- Take a brief walk once an hour
- Periodically stretch backward to counteract hunching forward
- Sit with your legs straight and not crossed
- Keep your shoulders relaxed
- Be sure that your hips are supported on a soft sitting surface
Staying active and working to maintain a healthy weight is also essential. Any exercise will help you improve your posture, even exercises as simple as stretching or walking. Keeping your joints limber will keep your body from becoming stiff and immobile.
