Pain Relief Back Brace


SpineCor® Pain Relief Back Brace provides postural rehabilitation to change spinal shape and loading. It is a neuro-muscular-skeletal rehabilitation tool for treating abnormal spinal loading and abnormal posture; it is not a simple back support brace.

In 2005, Dr. Brian Ouellette, President of Scoliosis Specialists, started experimenting with the idea of a new scoliosis adult pelvic short for the Spinecor Brace. There was difficulty with the comfort, wearability and materials. He contacted the President of The Spine Corporation, Andrew Mills, who helped to complete the design of the new Spinecor Adult Scoliosis Brace.

During the 2-year development process, clinical testing with the SpineCor® Pain Relief Back Brace was performed on 200 patients. Some of these patients reported pain relief within hours of the first application. Of all patients treated, 90% reported relief within 6 weeks of use. The brace was launched in April 2009 and has been used in many countries throughout the World

Initially, the brace is worn 8-16 hours per day in order to initiate postural changee. After several months of wear, it is often possible to reduce wearing time while maintaining pain relief.


Things To Know About Adult Scoliosis & Spinal Conditions

Scoliosis and other spinal conditions can affect the “balance” of body posture and spinal alignment. A loss of normal spinal balance creates abnormal loading on the vertebra, discs, ligaments, joints, tendons, muscles and nerves.

Over a relatively short period of time, abnormal loads on the body tissues alter their functions. Over a long enough period of time the structure of body tissues will change in response to the abnormal loading further compromising function. These changes can damage the body .i.e. facet joint arthrosis, disc degeneration, nerve root irritation, spinal stenosis, all of which lead to pain.

Promoting a change in the balance of the posture and the spine can help to correct the abnormal loading.
