Would A Back Brace Help My Dog Who Has IVDD Or Slipped Discs?

Would A Back Brace Help My Dog Who Has IVDD Or Slipped Discs?

Although a dog back brace will not cure dog IVDD or a slipped disc condition, it can provide comfort and protection to help alleviate your dog’s back pain. A dog back brace can also be used as part of physical rehabilitation, in long term cases of dog IVDD where ongoing management of the condition is needed, or if your dog has had IVDD surgery.

A dog back brace can help support your dog’s back. Back braces are designed to support a dog’s spine and surrounding muscles, in order to provide spinal stability, and relieve back pain or dog spine problems.

A study analysing the effects of using a dog back brace showed that trunk stability was improved by wearing one. This implied that back braces might also offer pain relief, improve the gait of a dog with a spinal cord injury, and relieve the hypersensitivity associated with Intervertebral Disc Disease in dogs.
