This information pack has been designed for you as a patient to read, print out and present to your trusted family doctor, physician or scoliosis specialist as an option for treatment for your scoliosis condition.

A Non-Rigid Dynamic 3 Dimensional Brace(SpineCor)

SpineCor™ is the first and only true dynamic 3 dimensional bracing system for idiopathic scoliosis.

SpineCor™'s unique approach to treatment by global postural re-education has been shown to give progressive correction over time.

SpineCor™ provides at least the same efficiency as rigid braces in straightening curves during treatment but offers significantly better: 

  • -Long-term post treatment results
  • -Cosmetic improvement
  • -Stable correction after brace removal.

SpineCor™ is much more acceptable for the patient offering: 

  • -Better cosmesis 
  • -Almost total freedom of movement
  • -Continuation of sports
  • -Normal activity during daily living.

SpineCor™ offers:

  • -A much more acceptable treatment to patients, being cooler to wear, less restrictive, more easily concealed under clothing and 4 hours of out of brace time per day.
  • -Excellent treatment results, particularly when treatment is started early.
  • -Excellent stability of treatment results post bracing.
  • -Neuromuscular integration for maintenance of improved posture.
  • -Potential to reduce incidence of surgical intervention.

SpineCor™ treatment was developed in the early 1990s and utilizes a Dynamic Corrective Brace (DCB), together with a completely new treatment approach requiring clinical assistant diagnostic software (SAS) to allow accurate fitting and treatment follow up.

Following 12 years of clinical research and trials, SpineCor™ is now rapidly being made available to patients around the world. 

The initial excellent clinical results produced by the research centre at Ste Justine Hospital and the University of Montrea, Canada, have since been replicated by more than 80 other treatment centres around the world. SpineCor™ has shown to be effective in 89% of cases (either by stabilization or improvement in (Cobb) angle of the curve)
