What are the benefits of a back belt or brace?

Earn a black belt in heavy lifting

In the opinion of some experts (but not all), back braces help protect injured muscles and ligaments of the spine by providing back support directly over the painful or weak area. Wearing the back belt during an injury is said to support and protect the damaged areas. As the damaged tissue heals, it is suggested that you wear the back support belt less, but always keep it handy in case you need to do any lifting.
