Sciatica Back Braces

Sciatica occurs when lower back/leg pain travels down the large sciatic nerve, from the lower back & down the back of the leg. Pain can be felt when the nerve root in the lower spine is pinched or irritated.

Those suffering from sciatica sometimes find relief with cold therapy and back support braces. At Bauerfeind, we have spent decades extensively researching and clinically testing supports to get the very best for people who suffer from sciatica.

Doesn't sciatica just go away by itself?

While in some cases, a bit of regular walking can alleviate sciatica, in many cases it only provides a temporary relief, if any. Bauerfeind's range of sciatica supports work by unloading the lower spine, taking pressure directly off the sciatic nerve and allowing it to move and function unimpeded, relieving pain in any position.

Can I still play sports in these?

Virtually all of our supports are designed for active use, whether it's on the sports field, in the gym, or just for a run around the block.�
