The aim of bracing in adolescents is to help stop curves from getting worse during skeletal growth. Indications for bracing are based upon the calculation of the risk of curvature progression. The calculation considers the patients age, skeletal maturity and curve severity.
It is our opinion that proper bracing and Schroth therapy together offer the best approach to minimizing curve progression in adolescents.
We are pleased to be one of the only UK center offering both Schroth therapy and bracing together under one roof.
Our brace is asymmetrical and is designed for use with the Schroth therapy. This kind of brace offers more space for breathing, in order to allow active correction by breathing movements. It is often worn 20-23 hours a day.
Studies have demonstrated that brace treatment can stop curvature progression and leads to significant improvements in the cosmetic deformations.
Each brace is measured and made individually for each patient.
To obtain the best result a patient should wear a suitable brace!

The SpineCor Brace – is a soft, dynamic brace which can be use for the patient with relatively small and simple curvatures.
This brace is not recommended for someone who has a spine curve more than 25 degrees, because curvature could rapidly get worse.
The Boston Brace – is a symmetrical brace.
