The main complaint in 90% of people with adult scoliosis, is pain (Kotwal et al., 2007).
There are different types of Adult Scoliosis and therefore there are different bracing options, depending on your individual presentation and need.
Bracing adults with scoliosis is very different to bracing adolescents with scoliosis. The braces have very different purposes.
Pain reduction for improved function and quality of life is the most common need wishing to be met.
These types of scoliosis braces endeavour to unload the spine, support improved alignment, provide pain relief and thereby improve function and quality of life.
There are soft brace options and hard brace options.
We have received training in adult scoliosis bracing options and are more than happy to share our expertise and knowledge with clients with adult scoliosis. Please don’t hesitate to call us with any questions.
