Soft scoliosis braces may be the best solution if you have been diagnosed with scoliosis.
You’ve Been Diagnosed With Scoliosis. Is a Soft Scoliosis Brace the Right Choice For You?
If you have been diagnosed with scoliosis, then a soft scoliosis brace can help you a great deal. Scoliosis is a condition where the spine of the person afflicted with it is curved in an abnormal way. While Scoliosis does not generally cause any pain, it can provide certain physical challenges to those that are afflicted with it.
While scoliosis cannot be cured there are many effective means of treating its symptoms and improving the quality of life of patients. While surgery is an option, it really should be an option of last resort. Surgery to help with scoliosis is not a cure, and it does carry with it significant side effects since it is major surgery. There is the risk associated with general anesthesia, the risk of infection, and also the risk of a mistake made during the surgery. Fortunately, there are other options that are far safer than surgery, and when used properly they can be quite effective at alleviating symptoms and improving quality of life for patients.
From Your Scoliosis Chiropractor: A Static Scoliosis Brace May Not Be The Answer
One of the most common types of braces used for scoliosis is a hard plastic brace, called a static brace. A static brace acts a lot like a body cast in that it is designed to prevent the curvature of the spine from worsening by keeping the body in a fixed position. There are a number of reasons why a hard plastic scoliosis brace is not the best option for patients. First, since it is a hard plastic brace meant to restrict movement it can be very uncomfortable. While they can be broken in over time, no amount of breaking in will get a patient used to have a constricting and stiff plastic brace around their torso for the majority of the day.
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.
So if you have scoliosis, don’t give up. Consider options that a scoliosis chiropractor in Arizona can recommend such as a soft scoliosis brace.
