In a few circumstances, very restrictive braces that utilize thigh cuff extensions to control the pelvis are sometimes needed and this type of brace is worn to treat a very specific situation, such as a patient who has undergone pelvic fusion where the bone quality is at risk or questionable.

Its effectiveness lies to the arrays surrounding pressures to the digital preform and the cuneiform adhesions on the structure of one and only typical vertebra at the time, with their application during the construction of the brace. Quality of Life research has been attempted, but is difficult due to a current lack of instruments.

Back braces, especially the Boston brace, puts a great deal of pressure on the abdomen and can make digestion uncomfortable.

Rigid braces are also used for the correction of scoliosis in the growing children and adolescents.

While it is expected that patients can participate in activities as strenuous as competitive gymnastics while in brace, it also pulls down against shoulder misalignments which compresses the spine. This brace will be worn for approximately several months after surgery but your doctor or surgeon will let the patient know if such a brace is necessary. These pads are usually placed in the back corners of the brace so that the body is thrust forward against the brace’s front, which acts corseet hold the body upright.


The theory holds that the support that the brace gives will [ clarification needed ] help the patient’s body learn to work as though it had no curve muscularly. Typically in such circumstances, surgery to correct the scoliosis could eventually be necessary despite many years of bracing.

In some cases of spinal fractures these can be managed without surgery using such a TLSO brace but this is only in the case where the type of fracture has its own inherent stability.

The brace corrects hip misalignments through padding. A thoracolumbosacral orthosis TLSOis a two-piece plastic brace supporting the spine from the thoracic vertebrae of the chest, to the base of the spine at the sacrum. The brace runs from just above the chair to T3 in many instances—it is successful at correcting high thoracic curves. It is most successful when the patient has relatively small and simple curvatures, is structurally young, and compliant—it is usually worn 20 hours a day.

Use of a brace does not always control the scoliosis curvature.


The brace provides additional immobilization, which corswt safely allow condition or fracture to heal with a minimal risk of further injury. After having undergoing complex spinal surgeries, this is especially the fusion procedures, a brace will probably be necessary. It grips the hips much like the Boston, and rises to approximately the same height, but pushes the patient’s body to the side.


It is the most commonly used brace in the United States. It is a customized product made of 3D printing material, with an elastic band to push the curved part of the spine. The brace is symmetrical, built with a plastic frame reinforced with aluminum rods.

It is used in single, thoracolumbar curves in patients 12—14 years of age before structural maturity who have flexible curves in the range of 25—35 Cobb degrees.

It is often used to facilitate healing of an anterior wedge compression fracture involving the T10 to L3 vertebrae. Indeed, the curvature in very aggressive scoliosis can continue to progress despite bracing. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Back brace – Wikipedia

These braces are very specific in nature and are used until the adolescent has finished growing usually to about 16 years of age. This brace is used for all curve patterns and types, even ones considered past brace treatment by other schools. A corset brace is similar to a traditional corset.

In these situations, a rigid brace may be needed.

The brace opens to the back, and toso runs from just above a chair’s seat when a person is seated to around shoulder-blade height. Large, sweeping, thick pads push the corsset to a corrected position.

The brace fights against the body’s curve by over-correcting. The brace comes in a variety of forms and can be used for treating severe or unstable compression fractures as well as other injuries and conditions. There is little rotational correction. The brace principally contracts to allow for lateral and longditutal rotation and movement.
