I recommended this brace to a friend & she got one also. Before I received my brace, not a day went by without pain. I started wearing it one day & then all of a sudden at the end of the day I’m like I don’t have any back pain. I started putting it on early morning & I could wear it all day while working on my flowers or going to the mall. Walking a lot was a no no for me until I got my brace. I could not go a day without my brace now. I feel like it saved my life and for me some of the things I like to do. I had back surgery at 30 & over the years it has only gotten worse. I was told at that time surgery would never be an option for me. Thanks so much the people are wonderful there.
