If you suffer from back pain, you’re not alone. In fact, back pain is one of the most common health complaints in the world. And while there are many different causes of back pain, adult scoliosis is one condition that can be particularly troublesome. If you have adult scoliosis, it’s important to find a treatment that can help ease your symptoms. One such treatment is a scoliosis brace called ScoliBrace – a device that helps stabilize the curvature of the spine. Here we’ll take a closer look at this innovative treatment and how it may be able to help you manage your scoliosis-related back pain.
What is adult scoliosis?
Adult scoliosis is a form of the spine disorder that results in an abnormal sideways bending of the spine. Sometimes the scoliosis developed early on in life in the pre-teen years. This is called Adult Idiopathic Scoliosis, which is essentially a continuation of Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis. However, scoliosis can also start in adult years, often times due to spinal degeneration. This is called Adult De Novo Scoliosis.
Scoliosis is actually more prevalent in adults then it is in children. It is estimated that 2-4% of children have scoliosis. However, the prevalence of scoliosis in adults aged <60 is 13% and for adults >60 it’s 36%. (1)
In adults, scoliosis can cause a number of issues, including: leg pain, back pain, buttock pain, rib hump, poor posture, and deterioration of the spine and discs. If adult scoliosis is left untreated it can lead to advance degeneration, spinal instabilities, and chronic pain. Surgery may sometimes be required if the scoliosis curve is severe or if there is nerve damage from the adult scoliosis.
ScoliBrace – A 3D Corrective Brace for Adults with Scoliosis
But for adult scoliosis sufferers who want a non-invasive treatment, a back brace may be a good option. One such brace is called ScoliBrace. The scoliosis brace ScoliBrace is a back brace that works by exerting corrective forces on the body to help straighten out the spine and relieve pain associated with adult scoliosis. ScoliBrace is used for adult de novo scoliosis patients who want to avoid surgery, but are experiencing adult scoliosis symptoms.
How does ScoliBrace work?
ScoliBrace is a non-invasive, comfortable adult scoliosis treatment that exerts corrective forces on the body to help reduce the scoliosis curvature (while wearing the brace) and relieve pain associated with adult scoliosis. Other treatment goals of ScoliBrace is to improve posture, stabilize the spine, and prevent progression. The ScoliBrace is a non-surgical device that can be worn to help with pain relief and improved posture. It may also reduce the need for surgery in some cases when used as part of an active rehabilitation program.
