Hello @finlayryan, Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I think you are asking the right question but I'm not sure any member will be able to answer it. Here's some information I found that may explain it a little better. When to Consider a Back Brace: https://www.spine-health.com/treatment/alternative-care/when-consider-back-brace

There is also another discussion on Connect you may be interested in reading.

Have you asked your doctor about alternative treatment options?

Hello @finlayryan. First of all, welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I am happy you are here. I’d like to introduce you to a few other Connect members who talk about lumbar degeneration in the Spine Health and in Bones, Joints and Muscles groups. Please meet @mamacita @irene5 @donfeld @rwinney @jmanj

I added your discussion to the Spine Health group (https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/spine-health/) to help engage people who may have similar experiences to share.

Welcome to the community! How long have you been experiencing the degeneration of two lumbar facet joints?
