How to Choose the Correct Back Support
Let ActiveForever find the right back brace for you!
Back supports are a great way to protect your back from strain and to train your back for proper posture. There are different types of supports that focus on specific parts of your back. The most important point to consider when choosing a back support is where you want to focus the attention on. Whether it be your lower, middle, upper back, shoulders, or a combo of these, ActiveForever has one that will fit your needs.
Focuses on the upper back and shoulder region. Originally designed for equestrians, this product is ideal for poor posture, which may cause lower back pain and muscle strain. It's specially designed to train the shoulder muscles to stay back. This light weight, discreet support will train the shoulders and mind in as little as an hour a day. Its comfortable material allows you to wear this while working out, sitting, or on the go. This product can be worn under or over clothing. By teaching your back to stand taller and straighter it will relieve strain, help you breathe better, and realign your spine. To find the correct size, measure the circumference of the rib cage just below your chest. This product is not suggested for those who have arm and shoulder mobility issues and does not have anyone to help put the brace on.
Focuses on the full back and shoulders. Its unique design anchors around the waist which not only discourages stooped shoulders, but assists in proper spinal alignment. The Criss-cross suspender-like straps gently pull the shoulders, spine and lower back into the neutral position to decrease back and shoulder pain. The comfortable under-arm elastic straps are covered with soft cotton fabric so they won't pinch or bind and the adjustable elastic waistband ensures a custom fit. This product can be worn under or over clothing. Order size according to waist measurement.
The ProLite Lo Plus Lumbar Support is an ultra-thin belt that stabilizes the lumbar back region inconspicuously. Designed around a firm posterior panel, it provides back pain relief for those with occasional or chronic back problems such as lumbar strains or muscle weakness. Low profile, tapered panels fit the natural contours of the body, compressing and stabilizing it almost invisibly.
Focuses on the upper back and shoulder region. This figure 8 posture support helps retrain your muscles to improve your posture and avoid long term back problems. The padded shoulder straps have easy to customize Velcro bands. This light weight splint can be worn under or over clothing. To find your correct size, measure from the center of your back up over one shoulder, under the opposite shoulder, and back to the center of your back.
