The DDS 500 is a decompression low back brace that alleviates pain and increases mobility by stretching the torso vertically and displacing stress away from the vertebral discs and nerves, which assists with active-rehabilitation. It is thin and lightweight and can be worn under clothing and allows patients to participate in daily activities as well as enjoying sports and leisure activities. The DDS 500 can also reduce muscle spasms, muscle cramps, helps maintain proper posture, and relieves strains in the low back.
There are some insurance plans that cover the cost of the DDS 500 completely while others have a co-insurance that can reduce the out-of-pocket expenditure. If you have been suffering from continual low back pain, ask your physical therapist if you might be a good candidate for this piece of durable medical equipment.
