A Soft Scoliosis Brace Is Effective and Comfortable | (480) 892-0022
Soft Scoliosis Braces and Other Types of Braces Available to You
As we covered previously, soft scoliosis braces are affordable. Getting a functioning brace won’t cut that deep into your pockets. And since most braces don’t come with sensitive parts, they can last you a lifetime. Furthermore, they are usually adjustable which means that even if you’re still growing, you can simply adjust the brace so that it can accommodate the added pressure. Some braces are thin so that they are unnoticeable.
You can wear the brace then put a shirt or jacket over it and no one will be able to notice that you are wearing a brace. Braces are very effective in fixing scoliosis. As we mentioned earlier, a brace can significantly reduce the curvature of the spine. When worn regularly, the brace helps in remolding and straightening the spine. There are other types of scoliosis braces around as well.
Scoliosis Bracing Options
The Wilmington Brace – This brace is unique due to the fact that a cast has to be made prior to the creation of the brace itself. The cast is made with the patient lying down with his face up. The brace has very little open spots and gaps which make it look like a jacket instead of a brace.
The Milwaukee Brace – This is one of the oldest braces to be designed but it’s still used today because it’s effective especially for adults. It’s usually used for patients whose curvatures are located higher in the cervical or thoracic spine. One drawback of the Milwaukee brace is that it’s so bulky.
The Charleston Bending Brace – This is a night-time brace which means it’s specifically designed to be worn at night when you sleep. It also involves creating a cast that will be used in designing the brace. Those who use the brace has to wear it lying down with their face up.
The Providence Brace – Just like the Charleston bending brace, this is a brace that should be used at night when you go to sleep. The brace elevates one of your shoulders then applies rotational and lateral forces on the curved spine. Over time, this helps in straightening and fixing the curvature.
In conclusion, getting a brace is something you should seriously consider if you are afflicted with scoliosis. As was mentioned earlier, it’s non-invasive compared to surgery so you have nothing to be worried about. You also have a lot of brace options to choose from. It’s highly recommended that you get two types of braces: one to wear during the day and one to wear when you sleep. Not only will the brace help you fix your spine’s curvature, it will also boost your confidence thus allowing you live a normal life.
