Soft Scoliosis Braces: A Non-Surgical Treatment
Currently, soft scoliosis braces are the only non-surgical treatment advocated for idiopathic scoliosis by the spine medical community. The main object of this treatments is to prevent the curve from growing as the child grows and several studies have proved it to be effective at stopping the progression of the majority of scoliotic curves in adolescents.
There are different soft bracing options, and the health care provider will recommend a particular brace type and scoliosis bracing schedule based on factors such as the degree of curvature as well as its location on the torso. Compliance with the bracing schedule as prescribed is vital to the success of any bracing treatment. Unfortunately, some spinal curves may still progress in spite of appropriate bracing. It is extremely difficult to determines which curves will be aggressive and continue progressing early on, which makes bracing an essential measure for all patients.
Spinal fusion surgery is usually recommended for curves that continue to grow past 40 degrees. However, even if this surgery eventually becomes necessary, soft scoliosis bracing will still play a big role in delaying the progression of the curvature and allow the child to grow older before the spinal fusion can be carried out (it stops the growth of the spine).
