Have you struggled to find a treatment method that you feel good about and that has a good chance of relieving pain and keeping the patient out of surgery? At Denver South, we treat many cases of adult scoliosis and scoliosis in children with the ScoliBrace.
The ScoliBrace uses 3D laser technology to scan your entire body, not just your spine. That’s because scoliosis is a three-dimensional disease, not one that just exists on one plane. We combine that with photos of your spine and X-rays to design a brace that is unique to you. Each brace is special because each case of scoliosis is unique.
The ScoliBrace is a scoliosis treatment that can help in several ways. It may reduce curves in certain types of scoliosis cases. You can talk to your doctor about whether your case fits within those categories. Scoliosis can hurt, and this brace and reduce pain in adult scoliosis and juvenile scoliosis. It can also improve posture, which can keep other areas of the body from being under- or over-developed, based on the particulars of your case of scoliosis.
A ScoliBrace may also help improve the way you look Many people who suffer from scoliosis, especially kids, are self-conscious because the condition makes their waist asymmetrical, humps a rib, or throws their shoulders out of level. The ScoliBrace can make all of this better.
