SpineCor for Scoliosis Treatment

SpineCor Scoliosis Brace

Some people have doubts about how a flexible scoliosis brace can be effective for the treatment of scoliosis since the way traditional static braces work is by immobilizing the torso by forcefully holding it in improved alignment, not something that is particularly comfortable for the patient. While flexible brace are far more comfortable than static bracing people wonder can it really help so much with scoliosis.

Scientific studies of the effects of the SpineCor Brace on those affected by idiopathic scoliosis show that the SpineCor soft brace is the only type of scoliosis brace that can reduce scoliosis curves. Also, when SpineCor is used in conjunction with scoliosis specific exercises have a 96% success rate in stopping the progression of scoliosis in adolescents.

Other studies on SpineCor alone that followed patients of idiopathic scoliosis for two years. After two years, 55% of the patients actually experienced an improvement in their curvatures, while 38% had a stabilization and only 7% had worsened. SpineCor’s success rate with stopping the progression of scoliosis curvatures was found to be far superior to the clumsy and uncomfortable static scoliosis braces.

Another analysis of a group of 365 idiopathic scoliosis patients treated with SpineCor was done in 2005 by the orthopedic surgeons who had developed the brace. In this study, patients were divided into two groups based on the angle of their curvature. The first group had an angle of 15 to 29 degrees, and the second group had a curve higher than 30 degrees.

In this study, the orthopedic surgeons found that 96.2% of the patients had an improvement, while 3.8% experienced a worsening of their symptoms. This study followed the patients for a time period of five years. These two studies conclusively prove that the treatment by this flexible brace is as effective as hard bracing, and in fact, offers certain benefits that hard bracing does not.

SpineCor has also been found to help adults with pain related to scoliosis. Untreated scoliosis can lead to a lifelong condition marked by physical deformity and chronic pain. Flexible bracing is an alternative to traditional methods of treating scoliosis without a constant reliance on pain medications or surgery.

Hard plastic braces are constructed in much the same way as a solid plaster cast. They frequently need to be worn outside clothing and are very uncomfortable. Due to this, doctors usually delayed traditional hard bracing until the curvature has progressed above 25 degrees. However, with a flexible SpineCor scoliosis brace, doctors can intervene as early as 15 degrees. This means that less damage is done to the body’s posture and better corrections can usually be made.

The flexible SpineCor brace uses the principle of dynamic corrective action. It is designed by connecting static elements with elastic, adjustable bands. These bands can be customized to allow for the needs of the specific patient. They do not impede movement and are much more comfortable than the hard plastic shell. Because they allow a freer range of movement, they can apply a small but constant amount of pressure to the spine, helping to guide it along the proper path.

The SpineCor brace can be easily worn underneath clothing so no one will even know you are wearing a brace and will not stop the patient from engaging in a variety of physical activities. This means that the patient can engage in their normal daily activities without anyone knowing they are even wearing it. In fact, the SpineCor brace has it’s greatest corrective action when you are moving while wearing it.
