brace for conducting

I am a conductor who has been suffering from an unusual (and still undiagnosed) illness for nearly 3 years. Among other things, my muscles fatigue very quickly and become increasingly painful and a bit clumsy the more I use them. Even just sitting up for a few hours makes my back and neck muscles hurt.

I rest a lot and seek out accomodations to help me remain as active as possible. For example, when conducting, I remain seated and change arms whenever one arm gets too tired/painful to use.

I'm interested in purchasing a back brace to wear when I conduct and would like help selecting an appropriate one. (Would the Lumbo-Thoracic Support be good?) I'd like something with strong support but slight flexibility so I don't appear stiff.

Thank you for your assistance.
