Corsets for Lower Back Pain
The LS corset is the most frequently prescribed supporting orthosis for patients with low back pain. Corset are made of a soft canvas or Dacron materials, fortified with rigid and flexible stays. These stays can be contoured to accommodate a deformity or can be straight to encourage postural correction.
LS corsets encompass the abdomen and the pelvis. By exerting circumferential pressure they increase intra-cavity pressure in the abdomen and transmit a three point pressure system to the lumbar spine.
LS corsets are most often used to manage acute low back pain.
