As soon as the doctor put it on and pumped it up, I was amazed at how much pain was gone. I felt so much better. I told all my friends about it and referred them , most of them now have the DDS Brace. I don’t wear it all the time now, but I know if I am going to do yard work or mow the lawn I have to wear it. If I am shopping or walking around a lot, I wear it. It is a little harder to drive or sit with it because it rides up. It is easier for me to bend down than it was before.
