Dynamic Scoliosis Bracing Treatment
Within our practice we specialize in the bracing treatment for Idiopathic Scoliosis using a 3 dimensional dynamic brace called SpineCor.
SpineCor braces are used in the treatment of idiopathic scoliosis for both adolescents and adults. Bracing is currently chosen as the non-surgical treatment for idiopathic scoliosis. Studies have shown that bracing is effective in preventing the progression of the majority of adolescent scoliosis curves.
SpineCor has been well researched and the effectiveness, compliance, comfort and dynamic nature of the brace have shown to be the same if not better than the conventional hard braces. (J Pediatr Orthop _ Volume 30, Number 6, September 2010)
Treatment for scoliosis is managed according to the patient’s condition and presentation. Every scoliosis case presents differently so the management of each case is unique. Bracing is currently chosen as the non-surgical treatment for idiopathic scoliosis. This method is chosen to prevent the curve from progressing as the spine continues to grow. The treatment plan needs to be made by a qualified brace provider, and you can book an appointment with us here.
