Aspen for Your Health
Aspen braces are prescribed as a crucial component of treatment, helping patients to rehabilitate and achieve optimal outcomes. Designed with patients in mind, Aspen braces are comfortable and help to offer a controlled environment for healing, decrease disability and encourage activity by providing better postural alignment. Ask your doctor to see whether Aspen bracing is the right treatment option for you.
Clinically Significant Stability
Inelastic braces have been shown to be significantly more effective at improving spinal stability than elastic braces, which is a key factor in reducing muscle spasm. Aspen braces are Inelastic by design and have been clinically tested to provide trunk stability while reducing the symptoms associated with muscle fatigue. These braces have also been shown to provide significant improvements in patient outcomes in terms of disability.
Treatment of Symptoms
Aspen braces target inflammation and secondary pain caused by muscle guarding with a non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical solution. Common benefits seen include reduced muscle spasm and increased mobility which improves patient activity thereby strengthening musculature. Goals for treatment include functional recovery, controlling pain intensity and encouraging a reduction of medication consumption.
Aspen’s patented SlickTrack™ tightening mechanism allows patients to easily control upper and lower compression, applying localized therapy directly to the lumbar spine. Direct, targeted compression allows the patient to control the level and location of their treatment. Providing a 4 to 1 mechanical advantage allows patients, regardless of strength, to achieve a therapeutic level of compression.
Aspen braces are designed to be low profile and light weight, enabling patients to wear them comfortably every day. They also provide rigid support yet are flexible in design to accommodate curves of the anatomy for a comfortable, intimate fit. Many of Aspen’s braces are designed to be easily concealed and worn under clothing.
