Research Studies

There are a number of research articles available on the effects of bracing and SpineCor braces. Click on any of the links below to retrieve the articles. If you have any questions, click here to contact us.

SpineCor Bracing is a 3 dimensional, dynamic brace especially designed and researched to help treat and prevent progression of idiopathic scoliosis curves. Research has shown that they have long-term post treatment results and provide a stable correction after the brace is removed. The brace preserves body movement and promotes corrective growth, while patients can continue with normal every day activities.

Clinical observations have shown that using the SpineCor brace when treating idiopathic scoliosis has led to significant postural improvements. SpineCor is also a cost effective solution over the long-term treatment of the patient. A concern that often arises with the use of braces is muscular atrophy, but SpineCor allows normal movement of the body so the risk of muscle atrophy is less.

A SpineCor brace offers:

  • a much more acceptable treatment option to patients, as it is cooler to wear, less restrictive, more easily concealed under clothing and allows 4 hours of out of brace time per day.
  • excellent treatment results, particularly when treatment is started early.
  • excellent stability of treatment results post bracing.
  • neuromuscular integration for maintenance of improved posture.
  • the potential to reduce incidence of surgical intervention.
  • For adult scoliosis SpineCor helps to prevent pain, improve posture and prevent further progression of the curve.”

Idiopathic Scoliosis can be diagnosed at any stage in life, though it is most common in adolescence. During this period, the body undergoes a large amount of growth, and the severity of the condition can increase drastically. It is always best that patients seek medical advice as soon as possible, do not delay or adopt the “wait and see” approach. Click here to book an appointment.
