Scoliosis Bracing

Scoliosis Bracing

What Is Scoliosis Bracing?

Scoliosis is a condition that causes an abnormal curve in our spine. Whereas a scoliosis brace is a device worn around the body that can help prevent the curve from getting worse. It can also make it less likely that you’ll need surgery in the future after bone growth has stopped.

Do you know that the progression of the curve grows fastest in a child or adolescent whose bones are still growing ? A brace is normally worn at this age to slow down the progression of the curve. It doesn’t work after bone growth has stopped.

How Does It Work?

Rigid braces put pressure on your spine in several places to help prevent it from curving more than it already has. Dynamic braces slow curve progression by retraining your body into mainitaing a corrective posture. Both types of braces may slow progression enough to remove the need for survey, but can’t completely or permanently straighten your spine.

What To Expect?

In One Spine, our Scoliosis Specialist practitioner will begin with consultation and carry on with the taking of X-ray to study the degree of curvature of your spine.

Depending on the curvature and taking into account of ages, sex and lifestyle, scoliosis specialist will then based on those details to choose a proper brace for you.

Brace can be rigid brace or can be dynamic brace depending on your condition. The construction and fitting of brace will take some times and frequent readjustment will take place in order to minimize the curvature.

Re-evaluation will take place every month to keep track on the progress of your curvature.
