Wearing a Back Brace For Deep Pressure?

 In a previous post, I mentioned that deep pressure (something like a hug) can help reduce generalized anxiety associated with autistic conditions. There are even special inflatable vests and weighted blankets designed to deliver deep pressure for autistic users. In my own case, I recently experienced some backache and decided to buy a lower-back brace to ease the strain. I ended up with the 3M Futuro Stabilizing Back Support, which can be worn under clothing. It seems to deliver some deep pressure as well, an added bonus. I feel calmer when I’m wearing it, though some of that might be due to my back not acting up. Anyway, if you’re looking for an unobtrusive way to get some deep pressure, you might consider a good back brace.
