Soft scoliosis braces may be one of the more effective scoliosis treatment options.
As we covered previously, unlike a hard or static brace that immobilizes the spine, a soft scoliosis brace moves freely with your body while supporting your deformity, halting the progression of your spinal curve and re-directing your body into a normal physiological position. This is a good thing, especially for children, as it allows them to participate in their daily activities (playing, biking, jumping, running etc.) while wearing the brace.
Soft Scoliosis Bracing and Reducing Spinal Curvature
When your spinal curve is held in place by a soft scoliosis brace, it will likely get smaller to the point where it might not require surgery. Several studies have confirmed that the more time you wear your brace, the more effective it becomes. Therefore, following your chiropractor’s directions is a must.
Generally, most people with scoliosis who have used soft braces to treat the condition have reported positive results. So, it can happen to you too if you use them as recommended. Braces are also available in a wide range of designs and types, so finding what suits you best shouldn’t be a problem.
How Well Do Soft Braces Work?
Generally, soft braces are very effective at preventing the curve from worsening and maintaining the normal appearance of the back. In fact, you’ll be able to notice significant straightening of the spine as soon as after the brace is applied. As already mentioned above, the longer you wear your brace, the more efficient it becomes.
For best results:
– Wearing a brace should be started early when a child is still growing.
– The brace should be well designed and fitted.
– The brace should strictly be worn within the amount of time prescribed by the doctor.
– The spinal curve should be moderate, not severe.
– Your family and friends need to show you love and support you throughout the entire process.
Risks Some complications that you may experience while using bracing therapy are: ·
· Skin Irritation
· The spinal curve may get worse if a person does not wear his or her brace for the prescribed amount of time.
Overall, soft braces are among the best treatment options for scoliosis available currently. So, why waste a lot of money and time on other methods that don’t work when you can give them a try. But first, you need to book an appointment with a chiropractor for proper diagnosis of your condition to be done. If you are a good candidate for bracing, he or she will recommend the best soft scoliosis brace to effectively treat your problem.
