At the London Orthotic Consultancy, we pioneer non-surgical scoliosis treatment through back bracing and specialist physiotherapy, as spinal surgery is extremely invasive.
Spinal bracing is commonly prescribed to treat adolescent idiopathic scoliosis as it may stop the progression of spinal curvature. It can also slow the progression of conditions such as osteoarthritis.
Spinal braces can also be used to immobilise the spine.When one segment of the spine moves,it creates motion in the areas above and below. Controlling this motion is extremely important when treating spinal injuries.
LOC prescribe both wrap around and bi-valve plastic braces. We are also aware that making the brace as comfortable as possible will improve compliance and ultimately have an impact on the success of treatment; we therefore use many different types of lining and padding in the search for the most comfort possible.
