Supports used in Scoliosis

*The above picture shows the MILWAUKEE brace, which is named after the city of Milwaukee where it was designed.

*It is most more acceptable than other braces.

*This is a body cast with a turn-buckle in between. The tightening of the turn-buckle stretches the concave side of the curve, thus correcting the deformity.

  1. I'm not sure how many of you are aware of the recent scientific developments and breakthroughs that have or are recently occurring in the field of scoliosis treatment. Prognostic testing/technology in the way of genetic testing and blood tests are now able to determine which early stage scoliosis patients are most likely to experience severe curve progression. This presents a new and unique opportunity for early stage scoliosis intervention rehab programs to reduce and eliminate many of the "at risk" smaller curve cases before they progress to much more complex and difficult large curvature cases. It’s actually quite revolutionary and amazing.
