The causes of lower back pain include muscle strains, herniated or degenerative discs, issues with the sacroiliac joints in your lower spine, and even arthritis. While several solutions exist to combat back pain, using a back brace for lower back pain is the least intrusive method. Plus, it’s non-habit forming, unlike taking medication. But, which brace provides the best relief and makes your day-to-day activities easier and less painful? Let’s take a look at 10 best back braces for lower back pain.
This study did not include female participants as it has been shown that the female sitting posture is different from that of males . While it would be interesting to study the effect of the lumbar support pillow on female participants, controlling for gender effects helped reduce the complexity of the analysis and the need for a much larger sample size. Moreover, the foundations of the chair were constrained, lowering arm rests and fixing the base to prevent rolling, to limit alternate strategies for changing comfort other than postural shifts with respect to the seat pan. Finally, while shorter term (30 minutes) static postural environments are reportedly adequate to determine comfort levels , the results may not generalize to longer seated exposure.

If you see a doctor for back pain, he (or she) may use terms such as thoracic, lumbar, lumbosacral, or sacrum. The point is, back pain is a large topic covering many different regions (or levels) of the spine.
The vast majority of low back pain is mechanical in nature. In many cases, low back pain is associated with spondylosis, a term that refers to the general degeneration of the spine associated with normal wear and tear that occurs in the joints, discs, and bones of the spine as people get older. Some examples of mechanical causes of low back pain include:
Your bed – you should have a mattress that keeps you spine straight, while at the same time supporting the weight of your shoulders and buttocks. Use a pillow, but not one that forces your neck into a steep angle.
Of course, not all incidences of back pain are injury or trauma-related. Many back problems are congenital (found at birth), degenerative, age-related, disease-related, and may be linked to poor posture, obesity or an unhealthy lifestyle such as smoking. Sometimes the back pain is worse than the severity of the injury or disorder. That statement raises the question, “When should I seek medical attention for back pain?”
When sitting in an office chair, a good lumbar back support should be flush against the small of the back. Many portable lumbar back supports are shaped specifically so that one end should be positioned up and the other down. When placed correctly, a lumbar back support should provide the following benefits:
I have chronic lower back pain and have used lumbar supports of several different varieties over the last 15 years. I needed to replace the support used in my car and I thought that a mesh version might be better than the memory foam because it can keep my back ventilated. After experimenting with this support on several different type of chairs I’ve determined that it is not suitable for my condition. The design of the support relies on the top and bottom part of it to rest and press against the back of the chair. For my needs the bottom part of the support needs to meet (rest on) the seat of the chair so that I can get the support in my lower back. For any chair that has a gap between the back and the seat (like many) the bottom part of the support slides into the gap and the resulting support is minimal. For all the pictures showing the item in use on this listing there is no pressure on the support. If there were you’d see how the bottom part gets pushed into the gap. For chairs where the back does meet the seat (like a car seat) the back cannot be soft (like a car seat). Reason, as previously stated the design of the support relies on the top and bottom of it to push against the back of the chair. For upholstered chair backs, what happens is the minimal surface area of support (basically a hard wire) pushes into the soft seat back. Once it does, it offers little in the way of support. So, for me, the only type of chair that this actually works on is a rigid chair back that meets the seat like, perhaps, a dining room chair. It does not provide support for office chairs and car bucket seats. When looking for a new support it was a toss-up between the memory foam (not just regular foam) and the mesh. I thought I’d give the mesh a try and as a result of my experiments, I’m returning this support and going back to the tried-and-true memory foam for my needs.
