Who Can Make Gains with the McDavid Knee Brace?

This McDavid Back Brace is designed to support major back pain and injuries, both of which can make playing sports pretty unlikely. However, wearing the McDavid Back Support can help you get back on your feet and speed up recovery with therapeutic compression. The adjustable design also lets you adjust the fit, so as you recover you can reduce the compression.

McDavid's High-Performance Neoprene

For their Neoprene Back Braces, McDavid use a non-petroleum neoprene variant with an advanced cell structure. This makes it specially engineered to improve performance in the following ways:

  • Superior compression for improved healing
  • Greater therapeutic insulation
  • A lighter build without sacrificing support
  • Longer-lasting comfort

Customised Fit with Hook and Loop Strap

The McDavid Back Brace is secured with an easy-use hook and loop strap. This along with the four available sizes makes sure each user will get their most comfortable fit. This also allows for a customised level of compression and support.

Steel Stays for More Rigid Protection

Using sturdy steel stays, the McDavid Support Brace helps to maintain healthy back alignment, accommodating for weakness and minor instability.
