I suffer from lower disc bulging and spinal stenosis. Before I got the DDS brace I couldn’t do hardly anything. I couldn’t stand on my feet for very long, without back pain. I withdrew from all activities. When I received the DDS brace I was able to function a lot better. I was undergoing spinal shots which I have since canceled. I will probably always have back problems, but the DDS has really helped me be able to function much better. Many thanks for the brace.
