Refer your scoliosis patients for corrective bracing for better pain relief in adults, or
to give your pediatric patients the best chance to prevent surgery by stabilizing
and/or reducing the magnitude of their scoliotic curve.
For smaller scoliotic curves, aggressive treatment (i.e. early bracing) results in a
better end result for the pediatric patient. Traditional approaches are to 'watch &
wait,' however, with modern corrective (i.e. over-corrective) bracing, (Spinecor and
ScoliBrace) stabilization and even reduction of scoliosis curves can be attained fairly
routinely. SEE STUDIES BELOW
With signed consent, we will keep you informed of your patients' bracing results as
well as send copies of any relevant x-rays taken at our facilities.
*Note to Chiropractors:
It is our policy for our braced patients to stay on their current chiropractic adjusting
programs to ensure their spine remains as loose and supple as possible in order to
allow the brace to have its greatest effect.
We only consult patients in regards to their bracing protocol, and will consult the
attending chiropractor only if there are any further recommendations to enhance
treatment results (i.e. addition of corrective exercises etc.).
Indications for Referral for Corrective Scoliosis Bracing
- Suspected scoliosis with Positive Adam's test.
- Suspected scoliosis with Negative Adam's test (It takes a curve of 15-25° to
show a positive Adam's test).
- Severe postural deformity (i.e. large side shift, winged scapula, high shoulder,
deformed chest etc.).
Pediatric thoracic hyper-kyphosis (typically rare but severe in pediatrics).
- Scoliosis diagnosis but not a surgical candidate.
- Severe scoliosis but parents refuse scoliosis surgery.
- Pediatric patient non-compliant with standard rigid TLSO bracing (excellent
candidate for the SpineCor dynamic brace).
- Idiopathic scoliosis causing back pains.
- Degenerative scoliosis causing back pain.
- Prior stable scoliosis that is suspected to have worsened (i.e. late progressive
- Thoracic hyper-kyphosis causing mid or low back pain.
- Thoracic hyper-kyphosis without back pain (This posture has serious
deleterious consequences on the heart, lungs and for those with
