A device that can help to protect back bone during exercises is known as back supports or corsets. These supports or corsets are available at any pharmacies or medical equipment outlets. If you are undergoing a normal exercise program, your muscles are your best protectors. Even if you are into weight training or lifting exercise regime, your muscles, namely your abdominals and back muscles, are the best protectors.

If you are recovering from an acute sprain and should you want to continue exercising, then the support can be worn to protect the sprained muscles. But this is temporary until you recover from the sprain.
Work on your core stabilizers, (abdominals and back extensors) to give natural protection or support to prevent injury for all of the activities in your daily life.
