The Benefits of IncrediBraces for Circulation and Pain Support

Host Dr. Kevin Passero and his special guest Jackson Corley will be discussing the benefits of IncrediBraces for circulation and pain support.

In 2008, Dr. Jackson Corley, a certified chiropractor and extreme-sports enthusiast, was mountain biking in Upper Bidwell Park. He crashed and fell down a 15-foot ravine, herniating five discs and severely injuring his legs. In lieu of surgery, he invented special socks called Incredisocks and a back brace called the Incredibrace using materials that vastly improved blood and oxygen flow and relieved his pain. He’s since modified the Incredibrace to include wrist and knee braces. In less than two years on the market, his Incrediwear products are catching fire worldwide.
