Scoliosis Braces

Scoliosis braces are available as both rigid and dynamic braces. Rigid scoliosis braces work by using a 3 point pressure system which help to limit or stop the progression of the curvature. Dynamic braces work differently by using dynamic forces to work against the body via the use of specific panelling or elasticated strapping.

Scoliosis braces are used to stabilise the curvature of the spine which occurs due to scoliosis. For some users braces have been found to provide correction to the initial angle. Scoliosis braces can be either rigid or dynamic. Rigid braces work by applying pressure above and below the curve as well as on the opposite side this helps to limit the progression of the curve by maintaining a constant position. Dynamic braces are flexible and achieve support by using dynamic panelling and strapping within a close fitting lycra suit, as the user moves the suit resists the movements and helps to maintain the correct positioning of the spine. Both types of braces need to be worn for 16 to 23 hours to see the best results.

In order to receive the most appropriate scoliosis brace you will need to undergo an assessment with one of our orthotists. This will involve a discussion about your scoliosis, what you would like to get out of wearing a brace, as well as discussing your lifestyle (hobbies and activities etc). Following the discussion your orthotist will be able to establish which device will be most suitable. They will then need to take a series of measurements and a cast, if your brace is to be custom made, to ensure the brace size is selected correctly. Following this your details will be sent to the manufacturer for your brace to be created. Once complete you will be required to visit for a fitting where your orthotist will check that the brace is comfortable to wear and will provide advice on how you should wear the device.
