SpineCor® was developed as a "Dynamic" bracing system for idiopathic scoliosis. This is a genetic curvature of the spine and usually progresses around puberty.
Treatment for Children
SpineCor® treatment is different to conventional non-surgical treatments, which are all essentially rigid or semi-rigid braces. SpineCor® recognizes and attempts to control not only the progression of the deformity, but works to rebalance and strengthen the abnormal musculature, improve posture and to reinforce and integrate positive neurological feedback.
Benefits of the SpineCor® brace:
- It can provide stabilisation or correction of Idiopathic Scoliosis from a 15° Cobb angle and above.
- It is fully flexible, allowing normal body movement and growth.
- It allows children to lead a normal life.
- It is worn easily and comfortably under clothing.
- It increases children’s treatment acceptance, helping to achieve better results.
The SpineCor® Dynamic Corrective 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.
Treatment for Adults
The SpineCor® Pain Relief Back Brace is an innovative approach to spinal treatment in adults, providing pain relief and postural rehabilitation.
Clinical experience during the two year development of the brace involving 200 patients demonstrated pain relief within a few hours of being fitted in some cases, with 90% of patients reporting pain relief within six weeks of use.
The brace is typically worn 8-16 hours per day in order to initiate changes in posture. After several months of wear, it is often possible to reduce the wearing time and maintain the same level of pain relief.
The SpineCor® Pain Relief Back Brace is primarily aimed at treating back pain caused by:
- Adult De-novo Scoliosis
- Degenerative Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis in Adults
- Chronic Antalgic Scoliosis
- Spinal Stenosis related to spinal misalignment
- Postural Scoliosis
- Post Traumatic Scoliosis
Benefits of the SpineCor® Pain Relief Back Brace:
Pain: The primary treatment of the SpineCor® Pain Relief Back Brace is pain relief, however postural improvement is directly related to pain relief and is therefore an added benefit.
Posture: The postural changes achieved using this brace are patient specific and are defined by the clinical and radiological features of the patient’s condition. Often, changes in posture will result in a reduction in pain and help prevent a worsening of the scoliosis.
Progression: Changes to the patient’s posture will help to prevent progression of the scoliosis curve and can sometimes even reduce the curve slightly. In all cases, x-rays are advised to optimise treatment. Please note, significant correction of Cobb angles in adults will rarely be possible and should not be a significant treatment objective.
The SpineCor® Pain Relief Back Brace is made up of two sections:
The first section consists of the pelvic shorts (1). The shorts act as an anchoring point and support the actions applied to the patient’s trunk by the elastic corrective bands.
The second section consists of the bolero (2) and the corrective bands (3). This is designed to apply the corrective movement to the scoliosis. The fitting of the corrective bands is specific for each patient and depends on the patient’s type of curve/spinal deformity.
