Scoliosis Bracing: How to Treat Scoliosis Symptoms
As we covered previously, one of the symptoms of scoliosis is that the head appears off the center of the body. Another symptom of the condition is that the ribs in the rib cage would be disjointed. This means that the ribs would not be aligned as it is supposed to be. Scoliosis may also lead to the non-alignment of the hips. Clothes not hanging properly on the body is another symptom of scoliosis. Scoliosis can also result in unbalanced shoulders. Moreover, people suffering from scoliosis have a tendency to lean sideways when they stand or when they are walking. Scoliosis may also result in uneven leg lengths.
Soft scoliosis bracing is a treatment for scoliosis. Ordinarily, the standard treatment for scoliosis is surgery but there are times when soft bracing can be used to treat scoliosis. Wearing a soft brace could be an effective way to keep the cobb angle of a scoliosis curve relatively small and manageable. Bracing treatment is aimed at applying corrective forces on the spine. The logic behind the use of bracing is that the growth of the compressing bone would reduce while the growth of the bone experiencing distraction would improve. The implication of this is that the use of soft bracing would slow down bone growth on the side that needs to be slowed and improve bone growth on the side that needs to be improved. This would corrective the defect and enable the spine to be balanced. There are two different types of bracing for the treatment of scoliosis. One is the rigid brace and the other is the soft/dynamic brace. The soft /dynamic bracing treatment for scoliosis is by far the best option open for the treatment of scoliosis.
Soft Scoliosis Braces: A Revolution in the Making
Soft bracing was developed about twenty years ago by a team of doctors who were unimpressed with the traditional way of treating scoliosis with a rigid brace. The result of this medical revolution is the SpineCor® brace.The SpineCor® brace is a soft brace for treating scoliosis and it is one of the most researched type of scoliosis braces in the world.
Unlike the rigid scoliosis brace, the SpineCor® brace is a soft scoliosis brace that is designed to move with the body which enables it to move in the direction of the correction while it is worn. Soft scoliosis braces allows the body to establish new movement patterns that would diminish scoliosis curves. The soft brace is the only scoliosis brace that has been clinically proven to reduce scoliosis curves permanently without surgery. In contrast, hard braces are a form of scoliosis bracing that would only stop progression of scoliosis but are incapable of correcting the condition because they impede bone growth and prevent the body from adapting to new patterns of movement.
