The Best Scoliosis Brace For Children
Early detection and treatment with the SpineCor scoliosis brace for children provides the best opportunity to fix pediatric scoliosis before spinal surgery is required. That is because the smaller the degree of curve, the better the prognosis for correcting and stopping progression of scoliosis. The “let’s wait and see what happens” approach is not recommended. Scoliosis requires prompt and regular attention. During growth spurts, curves can progress quickly, sometimes leading to surgery and making parents wish they had braced their child earlier. Also, it is easier to change the direction of a curve that is still growing than one that has stopped growing.
SpineCor Allows For Physical Activity
The SpineCor scoliosis brace for children is uniquely designed to allow for total freedom of movement. This is especially important in scoliosis treatment for children because movement allows for proper input from the your body’s nerves to the brain.
The SpineCor brace strengthens muscles through normal activity, rather than an atrophy of muscles that often occurs when a patient wears a rigid brace. We tell children fitted with the SpineCor brace to partake in all activities while wearing the brace under clothing. And because it is almost undetectable, children are more prone to wear it as directed. Thus, when patients comply, results are better.
Braces Are Proven to Work. And SpineCor Outperforms Them All.
Don’t let other scoliosis treatment providers tell you that braces are outdated and useless. Unlike their methods which lack real clinical studies, SpineCor is proven in published studies. In fact, the SpineCor scoliosis brace for children was developed by Orthopedic Surgeons. The goal was to achieve better results compared to rigid braces like the Boston brace, Rigo Cheneau and Milwaukee style braces. Mission accomplished. In Contrast to those rigid braces, SpineCor allows for full mobility. SpineCor eliminates muscle atrophy common with rigid brace patients. The research team also overcame the main reasons for compliance failures common with rigid braces. SpineCor is not bulky and can be hidden beneath clothing. It is also much more comfortable to wear and allows pediatric patients to remain active in sports and exercise.
Why Do I Need To Wear A Brace?
The goal of a brace you as a child is to try and keep your curve from getting worse. If the curve in your spine is more than 25 degrees and you still have much growing to do, your curve could get much worse without a brace.
The SpineCor Scoliosis Brace for children is designed to halt that progression of the curve. In many cases, it can correct curves in patients who are not yet skeletally mature. Once growth has reached a point, or if the curve is too severe (more than 40-50 degrees), then bracing is less useful.
Our doctors will know if bracing is the right treatment for your spinal curve after they perform an exam. If so, he or she also will decide if SpineCor is the right method and the length of time the brace should be worn.
