View Full Version : Back Pains

Hi! Haley here. I just got a Boston brace on Friday, June 5th. My back has been hurting consistently. Is this normal? Any time I sit or lay down, it feels like I have a huge bruise and I'm putting pressure on it.:(
Any tips to make this stop?


Haley :D

I had a lot of pain when I was first in my brace too. Just take some ibuprofen :(
It's okay; it will get better. i feel your pain- we all do

good luck

Tell your brace person next time you go back, maybe it needs some adjusting.
From what i heard Bsoton braces hurt and are uncomfortable!

Have you looked into other braces? There is a soft boston (hard on the outside, and ahs a soft liner in the inside)
and the newer braces TriaC (from the same company as hard Boston braces)
and Spinecor.
Good Luck

Thanks everyone for the advice!
My curves have improved a lot!
I've had my brace almost a year now, and it's almost closed
