What is SpineCor Brace ?
SpineCor® was developed in the early 1990s after rigorous research and clinical trials by a team of 65 researchers based at Ste Justine Hospital in Montreal, Canada.
It was developed to correct or stop progressive scoliosis, principally in children with Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS).
SpineCor® treatment is now used in 20 countries around the world and over 10,000 patients have been successfully treated.
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 spinal deformity, but works to rebalance and strengthen the abnormal musculature, improve posture and to reinforce and integrate neurological feedback.
SpineCor® treatment for adults was developed in 2004 as an evolution of the paediatric treatment. Very quickly it became clear that SpineCor® treatment on adults could produce small but important changes in their spinal alignment, with the most significant effect of this being pain relief.
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 SpineCor® Exercise Program has been designed to complement the action of the brace and reinforce the principles of the treatment.
Precise exercises have been designed for each type of scoliosis curve, according to the specific spine deformation and postural disorganization of the patient.
Patients treated with the SpineCor® brace must only carry out the exercises exclusively designed for his/her type of scoliosis curve to avoid interfering with the action of the brace.
