A standard component of our RecoveryAid Rx products, the Posterior Thoracic Extension is a detachable rigid panel. It attaches to the back of the RecoveryAid Base Garment and is held in place by the RecoveryAid Lumbar Belt. The Posterior Thoracic Extension offers thoracolumbar spine restriction and sagittal-coronal control. It is for the patient who needs extra support and restricted motion.
Any rigidity within braces can restrict motion and lead to muscle dependency. The Posterior Thoracic Extension, and all of the RecoveryAid Rx Accessories, are best used with the guidance of your health care provider.
