75% at 3 years. (2)
A brand-new article agrees: Improvement
comes over time regardless of
treatment (surgery or non-surgery).

compression fractures, a back brace is usually used.

spinal deformity, enhance quality of life, and lessen
back pain. (6) Back belts are not needed forever,
but for temporary and for certain conditions, they help!
