Prevent Muscle Imbalance With a Soft Scoliosis Brace
As we covered previously, one of the other major problems with a static scoliosis brace is the fact that it doesn’t help to deal with one of the main problems with this condition, and that is a muscular imbalance. When you look at the back of someone with scoliosis it’s pretty easy to see that muscular imbalance is a major problem.
Since a static brace prevents and restricts movement it doesn’t do anything at all to strengthen the muscles in the back that are out of balance. So to summarize, a static scoliosis brace is uncomfortable and also ineffective at treating one of the main issues associated with this condition. On top of that, there is growing evidence supporting the fact that static braces may not even be that effective at preventing further curvature of the spine, which is supposed to be their biggest benefit. So what’s left? One option is soft scoliosis bracing.
Why A Soft Scoliosis Brace Is A Better Option
There are a number of reasons that a soft scoliosis brace is a better option for patients. First of all, it is far more comfortable for them to wear. Soft Scoliosis braces are designed to provide a patient with the support that they need, while still allowing them to move around without feeling too restricted. Since most patients have to wear a Scoliosis brace for the majority of the day, having a comfortable brace is important. Not only will it improve the quality of life for a scoliosis patient, it will also improve the chances that they will comply with their treatment plan and wear the brace as much as they are supposed to.
The other big benefit of a soft scoliosis brace is that it is highly effective in treating one of the main problems associated with this condition, and that problem is a muscular imbalance. By supporting the back of a patient a soft Scoliosis brace encourages the spine to remain straighter, while also forcing the muscles in the back to strengthen in order to support a more natural spine curvature. In other words, a soft Scoliosis brace actually helps to correct the underlying problem. So when you take your soft scoliosis brace off you should still enjoy the benefits it provided to you.
