Orthoses, Spine, Lumbosacral, Support

Definition : Lumbosacral spine orthoses designed to provide support and some degree of movement restriction of the lumbar and sacral segments of the spine. These orthoses usually consist of soft or semi-rigid structures (belts, bands, corsets) encircling the lumbar and sacral segments of the spine; they are frequently made of fabrics combined with light metallic or plastic components. Lumbosacral spine support orthoses also provide limited restriction of the lumbar spine lateral and rotational motion; they are used mainly to alleviate pain and/or for short-term care of patients after injuries or surgery.
