SPINECOR® PAIN RELIEF BACK BRACE FOR ALASKA SCOLIOSIS PATIENTS
Dr. Oswald has been providing this brace for scoliosis patients the past 16 years.
The SpineCor® Pain Relief Back Brace is a neuro-musculo-skeletal rehabilitation tool for treating abnormal spinal loading and abnormal posture; it is not a simple back support brace.
Modes of action (from the SpineCor website):
Corrective movements gently guide the posture and spinal alignment in an optimal direction.
The elastic corrective bands act to resist the body’s movement back to the abnormal position.
This constant “correction, relaxation, correction, relaxation” is in reality a corrective postural exercise.
The brace is able to put a patient’s body through 10’s of 1000’s of repetitions per day instead of the 10-50 repetitions that are typical with other rehabilitation techniques.
It creates dynamic spinal offloading and neuromuscular rehabilitation with the ultimate goal of neuromuscular integration.
Clinical experience during the two year development of the brace involving 200 patients has demonstrated pain relief within a few hours of being fitted, and in most cases 90% of patients reported pain relief within six weeks of use.
