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
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.
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.
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.
