Search the FAQ for entries containing:

Occasionally patients will need to wear a brace for about 4-6 months after surgery depending on the type of surgery performed and the strength of bone. Many people wear a brace and usually tolerate it very well. Brace use after surgery allows patients to feel more secure and protect the spine while it heals.
