Until recently it was thought bracing Adult Degenerative Scoliosis or ADS may provide temporary relief only and long-term use would create muscle weakening and increase progression of scoliosis.
Advances in Scoliosis Bracing to a 3-D, Over Corrective, Super Corrective style has changed the outcome of long-term Scoliosis Bracing. These Braces create a mirror image positioning of the spine verses holding the spine in place, thus placing the spine in an over corrected position. The spine is also able to move in the direction of desired correction which prevents weakening of the spinal muscles. We consider Scolibrace the leader in 3-D Over Corrective Bracing and is the scoliosis brace we use in our office.
Recently, published research has shown 3-D Over Corrective Scoliosis Bracing both improves pain as well as prevents progression of Adult Degenerative Scoliosis.
This Friday Dr. Hartley will be presenting a review of Adult Degenerative Scoliosis, the History of Bracing with Adult Degenerative Scoliosis, 3-D Over Corrective Scoliosis Bracing Preventing Progression and Reducing Adult Scoliosis, as well as presenting several case studies showing symptom improvement and long-term scoliosis reduction in Adult Degenerative Scoliosis.
