A Back Brace Is Essential For Pain Control and Core Retraining.
Protect Your Back While You Ride and Look After Your Horse
There are various ways to manage back pain, pain medication, exercises, treatment, and a back brace.
The back brace is a quick solution for horse riders. Put the brace on while you ride and work around horses.
Most back injuries are a result of micro repetitive traumas such as lifting, jarring, bending, twisting and sitting. Looking after a horse involves all of these movements. Pain from your back will inhibit the core. This slowly affects your riding skills, balance, and confidence. Sadly many horse riders give up. Many riders are told to stop riding by their Dr. or Physio.
I understand riding and horses and I know about the spine and how it works. Not all advice is correct and I have helped many exasperated riders keep riding or get back to riding with back injuries.

Wearing a Back Brace Can Keep you Active and Riding!
The Brace will absorb the jarring impact and help support the lower back when horse riding. The footfall of the horse results in an equal and opposite force back on the saddle and through your joints. This force causes jarring in the joints. It cannot be avoided but it can be reduced by using a back brace.
A back brace can compliment core stability. The abdominal muscles wrap around the lower abdominal area. The back brace wraps around the same line. For riders with weak deep core muscle, a back brace can act as a support for the deep muscles and provide support and stability for the lumbar joints. If used in conjunction with the Applied Posture Riding program the low back support can be built up enormously through exercise and the back brace.
Measure around your hips. Feel for the top of your pelvis (hip bones) and measure around this line to get the correct size. The brace is worn around the waist and hip area so if you must order to fit the largest part of your body. Women with a narrow waist and wide hips are advised to measure around your waist and wear the brace higher.
