Back Orthotics (scoliose)
When your doctor has established, through regular check-ups, that your scoliosis is progressing, he can prescribe:
- A rigid brace made of light plastic material. This is the current 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). This 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. It also corrects the rotation, as no other corset can do. 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
