Herniated Disc Support
Reviewed in the United States on June 3, 2016
Over the last two years or so, I have been struggling with my on and off relationship with Sciatica. In January this year, I had an MRI done and the doctors found that I had two herniated discs, the L5 and S1. This is due to genetics, weight, and my job (constant up and down, fast pace, etc). So my uncle (retired doctor) told me to look into a back brace. I surfed amazon to find something with higher rated reviews. I came across this one and gave it a try.
-More Velcro for better structure and support.
-Sizing (I am plus size).
-Covers whole core and lower back.
-Excellent lumbar support.
-The plastic bars in the brace break after a while.
-It folds (not too bad).
-Makes back/armpit fat more prominent (which is not important if you want to be comfortable, more of a vanity issue).
-Not constructed for those that have a third gut (which is not the company's problem, but our own).
Overall, if you want something that is size accurate, which is really important for online shoppers such as myself, and has good form, this would be the best bet. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 due to the lack of longevity of the product (I have to replace every 1 1/2 months or so).
I was not offered a discount or free product for this review. I am an honest customer with an honest review. Thank you.
