Applicable people and precautions for spine brace

Thoracolumbar vertebral injury is mainly the damage of bone, ligaments, and intervertebral discs and damage to spinal nerve tissue. Due to anatomical changes, there is no sternal stalk in front of T11 and T12, with free ribs on both sides, and stability is worse than other thoracic vertebrae; while the thoracic vertebrae are kyphotic and the lumbar vertebrae are kyphotic, so it is easy to subject the spine pass. In general, T12 to L2 fractures account for 60% of spinal fractures, and T11 to L4 fractures account for 90% of spinal fractures. Therefore, commonly referred to as thoracolumbar fractures refer to T11 to L4 fractures.


Thoracolumbar fractures are the most common site of spinal burst fractures. Traffic accidents and falls from heights are the main causes of thoracolumbar fractures. Patients mainly showed local pain in the wound, limited trunk movement, and neurological symptoms. Its treatment includes surgical treatment and non-surgical treatment. The choice of treatment method mainly depends on the angle of the spine, spinal canal involvement, and the degree of nerve damage. If there are no obvious neurological symptoms, the recovery is better. Once the spinal cord is completely damaged, recovery is often difficult.


Thoracolumbar fractures refer to the destruction of thoracolumbar vertebrae continuity due to external forces. This is the most common spinal injury. In young adults, high-energy injury is the main cause of injury, such as car accidents, fall injuries from heights, and so on. Elderly patients due to their own osteoporosis, most of the injuries are low-violence injuries, such as slipping and falling. Patients with thoracolumbar vertebral fractures often have neurological injuries, and because the injury factor is basically high-energy injury, other organ injuries are often combined, which brings great difficulties and challenges to treatment.


Vertebral fractures account for 5% to 6% of systemic fractures, with thoracolumbar vertebral fractures more common. Spinal fractures can be associated with spinal cord or cauda equina injury, especially cervical spine fractures and dislocations can cause spinal cord injury, and severe cases can cause paraplegia and even death. Violence is the main cause of fractures, with car accidents and fall injuries more common.


The spine brace is suitable for:


Such orthotics are mostly used for lumbar disorders where waist movements need to be restricted. It is sometimes used to treat low back pain and lumbar disc herniation, after disc herniation, and after spinal fusion. It can also be used to treat stable lumbar spine fractures (such as thoracolumbar fractures, spondylolisthesis, disc herniation, vertebral tuberculosis, osteoporosis, etc.); degenerative lumbar disc herniation; congenital thoracolumbar, vertebrae, etc. After thoracolumbar spine surgery; compression fracture.


Thoracic and lumbar support:

1. It is advisable that the ends of the two wings cling to the Velcro to wrap the waist.

2. Adjust the Velcro to fit the body so as to support the lumbar spine and the body to a large extent.

3. Patients with severe respiratory tract are disabled.


Features of spine support:

Clinical product with strong practicability, good conformability, reliable and stable supporting effect, effectively limiting the flexion, stretching, lateral flexion and rotation of the thoracolumbar spine, light and beautiful, easy to wear. It is shaped according to the patient's body shape, has a large adaptable range, and is designed with ergonomic front and rear guards to provide stability and support for the lumbar spine and high structural strength. Good control can strengthen the stability of lumbar support.
