The Dynamic Corrective Brace
Developed by two orthopedic surgeons, Dr. Coillard and Dr. Rivard, this is the first brace of its kind! The brace is superior to other traditional braces by its comfort, movement ability while wearing the brace, its light-weight, ease of use (taking on/off), its discreetness (not seen under most clothing), and particularly its success (scientifically proven)!
In 2007, the Journal of Pediatric Orthopedics published the results of the SpineCor bracing protocol on hundreds of children. The results demonstrated the SpineCor brace to provide correction or stabilization of scoliosis curvatures in the majority (89%) of the patients as well as 93% of the patients remained stable after being weaned off the brace 5 years later! The SpineCor brace was also superior as compared to two other back braces in preventing patients from progressing to need spinal surgery.
The SpineCor bracing system consists of two components:
- Anchoring Base Point: This includes the pelvic base, thigh bands and crotch bands;
- Corrective Component: This includes the bolero and the corrective elastic bands.
Together the two main components have been proven to provide spine and postural correction, while simultaneously providing comfort and discreetness.
The SpineCor system is based on a new etiopathogenic concept created by a team of 65 researchers.The SpineCor treatment approach targets the four key progression factors of scoliosis:
- Neuromuscular dysfunction
- Postural Disorganization
- Spinal Deformity
It is rare to completely reverse a patient’s scoliosis. Using the SpineCor dynamic corrective brace which addresses all 4 of the key progression factors, however, it is possible to minimize or reduce these factors and/or stabilize the scoliosis in up to 93%* of cases!
How SpineCor Works…
The therapeutic approach of SpineCor uses a ‘corrective movement strategy’ to dynamically open the scoliotic curve.
Correction to scoliotic curves can only be done by progressively overcorrecting a patient’s spine and postural deformity. This is exactly what the brace accomplishes as the corrective elastic bands (see above) are configured around the patient to provide a constant ‘pull’ or ‘tension’ on the patient in their unique corrective movement.
Over time, as the patient moves within the brace, the corrective tensions slowly retrain the neuromusculoskeletal system leading to slow and progressive improvements in spinal alignment and posture.
