In brief: Prob. negative
You didn't mention what condition you are treating.
In general, I do not recommend back braces. They have not proven helpful in the long run for scoliosis. The better treatment is to strengthen your core body muscles to support your back. Wearing a brace long term will instead cause those muscles to atrophy.
