I’ve had my brace since NOV. 24, 2012 my DDS lumbar support belt has truly been a blessing. Since I’ve been wearing it I have not had to get cortisone injections to relieve the pain in my back thigh/leg. I can really see the difference when I don’t wear it daily from now on. The brace supports greatly with prolonged sitting / standing. Ordering it was one of best decision I’ve made. When we travel to Eastman Georgia approx a 13 drive it gives me all the comforting support. Thank you for this great product.
