If you’ve been diagnosed with scoliosis, you might want to get a soft scoliosis brace from your scoliosis chiropractor in Arizona.
Which Scoliosis Brace Should I Use?
Which scoliosis brace should you use? One of the best soft scoliosis braces around is the SpineCor® Brace. According to their site:
“The SpineCor® brace is made up of two sections:
The first section consists of the pelvic base (1), the crotch bands (2) and the thigh bands (3). Its role is to act as an anchoring point and support for actions applied to the patient’s trunk by the corrective elastic bands.
The second section consists of the bolero (4) and the corrective bands (5). This is the part designed to make the correction of the scoliosis curve. The fitting of the corrective bands is specific for each patient and depends on the type of curve.
The SpineCor® Treatment Process
Prior to the patient’s first appointment, their medical condition is reviewed to determine what treatments or medication may have already been administered.
During the patient’s first visit to the clinic a series of evaluations are carried out before fitting the SpineCor® brace:
Clinical Evaluation: to evaluate the patient’s growth and the pattern of any postural abnormalities.
X-ray Evaluation: recent x-rays of the patient’s spine are studied to evaluate their type of scoliosis curve and its potential for progression. Some new, pre-bracing x-rays may need to be taken, depending on the x-rays which may already be available.
Postural Evaluation: to evaluate the patient’s postural abnormalities by visual evaluation of their spine and simple measurements being taken using a laser plumbline, scoliometer, protractor and ruler.
SpineCor® Assistant Software (SAS): specially designed software records data from all the evaluations and calculates the patient’s specific curve classification. This software will also specify the exact brace fitting details for the patient.
Once the brace is fitted, the changes to the patient’s spine and posture are evaluated. A new x-ray of the patient wearing the brace is then required to confirm the results.
At the end of the visit the patient will be shown how to fit and take off the brace.
The patient will need to make further visits to their clinic for regular readjustments to the brace for the duration of their SpineCor® treatment.”[VIEW SOURCE]
