Posture Brace Vs Back Brace: What’s The Difference?

Posture braces and back braces can be used with similar effectiveness, but are actually designed for different purposes.

Posture braces are used to improve your comfort level, and they mostly designed to support your shoulders, or clavicle area, and the upper back. They help your posture by preventing slumping by pulling your shoulders back. Your body is then trained over a period of time to sit up straight in more of a therapeutic manner.

The back brace, on the other hand, fits around your lower back, and was created to restrict your movement when you have a serious injury, like a strain or sprain. They also can be used to support you while you are lifting heavy objects. Some back braces are created to treat more serious medical conditions like Scoliosis.
