SpineCor brace

Non-Surgical treatment

Brace treatment

When your doctor has established, through regular check-ups, that your scoliosis is progressing, he can prescribe:

  • A cast brace (which has almost been discontinued other than for infants).
  • A rigid brace  made of light  plastic material. This is the actual standard treatment and limits or  stops  the progression of the disease if worn 23 hours per day.  Braces in this category include:  Thermoplastic TLSO, Boston Brace, Cheneau Brace, Charleston Brace and Milwaukee Brace.
  • A non-rigid   dynamic brace   (SpineCor). It  provides at least the same efficiency as rigid braces in straightening curves during treatment but offers significantly better long-term post treatment results, cosmetic improvement and stable correction after brace removal.  Additionally, SpineCor is much more acceptable for the patient, offering better cosmesis, almost total   freedom of   movement and  continuation of sports and normal activity of daily living.  The  four hours per day break from treatment advised with SpineCor makes it even more acceptable to patients.

  The traditional rigid brace is restricting and uncomfortable.   Our brace is made of light, non-irritating material. It is discreetly worn beneath patient clothing for optimum self-image and comfort.
