Scoliosis Systems Highlights Research Showing Elastic Tension Bracing is as Effective as Hard Bracing

October 14, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Scoliosis Systems, a specialist in the non-surgical treatment of scoliosis, offers patients a flexible, dynamic Spinecor tension brace that research has shown to be as effective in treating the curvature of the spine and traditional hard braces. This treatment approach is completely different to that of traditional three-point pressure rigid braces. It is the first and only true dynamic bracing system for idiopathic scoliosis.

This Spinecor uses a corrective movement principle which has been shown to help reduce the scoliosis curvature even after the brace has been removed. Through the use of elastic tension bands, Spinecor helps reeducate muscles and allows the force of gravity to permanently influence the growing spine. In adults, Spinecor can effectively reduce pain and fatigue, and improve postural control, thereby effectively reducing the degree of curvature even without affecting the shapes of the spinal bones.

The unique approach to treatment by global postural re-education has been shown to give progressive correction over time which, unlike any previous brace treatment, is extremely stable post brace weaning.

The dynamic tension brace option is also a more comfortable and less intrusive means of treating scoliosis. Spinecor allows patients to take the brace off for up to four hours a day, it offers total freedom of movement, can be well concealed by clothing and is cool to wear. Clinical experience to date also shows better compliance and cosmetic results.
