Back braces and supports
Take care of your back with a back brace and support. The extra stability you get from these back braces can protect your back from injury while youre lifting or performing strenuous tasks. We carry a variety of back brace and support options here at Walgreens.com, including therapeutic products. Choose a back support from brands such as OTC Professional Orthopaedic, OTC and Hudson Medical.
The support you need
Deciding how you need to use back braces and supports will help you choose the best one. Industrial belts are worn over your clothes to provide support when lifting or moving heavy objects or doing other activity. Some back braces include hot or cold inserts for therapeutic benefits. Abdominal binders support weakened abdominal muscles as well as your lower back. There are also lumbar cushions for portable lower back pain relief that you can use at the office, in the car or at home.
Back pain relief
While back braces and supports can protect against further injury or strain or may help healing, we also carry other products to help relieve back pain. There are back pain relief tablets as well as ibuprofen and acetaminophen to manage pain. Topical pain relievers can target the specific areas that give you pain. There are also heat therapy solutions, such as heating pads that can help relax sore muscles.
