Brace Wear Control of Curve Progression in Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis
- Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis: Indications and efficacy of nonoperative treatment. Canavese, Federico; Kaelin, André // Indian Journal of Orthopaedics;Jan-Mar2011, Vol. 45 Issue 1, p7
The strategy for the treatment of idiopathic scoliosis depends essentially upon the magnitude and pattern of the deformity, and its potential for progression. Treatment options include observation, bracing and/or surgery. During the past decade, several studies have demonstrated that the natural...
- Study Supports Back Braces for Scoliosis. // Texas Journal of Chiropractic;Winter2014, Vol. 29 Issue 1, p11
The article discusses a study which found that 72 percent of adolescent patients with idiopathic scoliosis experienced treatment success with back bracing, compared with 48 percent of those who were simply observed over time, with back braces decreasing curve progression where surgery would be...
- Early Night-Time-Bracing Sufficient in Stopping IAS Progressions. // O&P Business News;6/1/2010, Vol. 19 Issue 7, p13
The article focuses on a study which shows that early night-time bracing can replace full-time bracing for patients with idiopathic adolescent scoliosis (IAS).
- Scoliosis: Innovative scoliosis treatment: A back brace that can measure how long it is worn for. // Biomedical Market Newsletter;6/1/2012, Vol. 21, p1
The article offers information on the treatment of scoliosis with the help of braces containing tiny heat sensor which monitors how long the patient has to wear the braces.
- Rate of surgery in patients treated with a ChÃªneau light brace using the SRS inclusion criteria. Weiss, Hans-Rudolf; Werkmann, Mario // Polish Annals of Medicine / Rocznik Medyczny;Jan-Jul2012, Vol. 19 Issue 1, p1
Introduction: Studies investigating the outcome of conservative scoliosis treatment differ widely with respect to the inclusion criteria used. Prospective cohort studies are available using the Scoliosis Research Society (SRS) inclusion criteria for studies on bracing. These seem to provide a...

An abstract of the article "A prospective randomized study of the natural history of idiopathic scoliosis versus treatment with the SpineCor brace," by C. Coillard, A. Circo and C. Rivard is presented.
- Effectiveness of the SpineCor brace based on the standardized criteria proposed by the S.R.S. for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis - up to date results. Circo, A. B.; Coillard, C.; Rivard, C. H. // Scoliosis (17487161);2009 Supplement 2, Vol. 4, Special section p1
Objective The objective of this study was to verify the effectiveness of the Dynamic SpineCor brace for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis and to confirm the stability of the results two years after the end of the treatment. Study design From 1993 to 2009, 840 patients were treated using the...
- SpineCor treatment for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis - 5 years follow-up after weaning of the brace. Circo, A. B.; Coillard, C.; Rivard, C. H. // Scoliosis (17487161);2009 Supplement 2, Vol. 4, Special section p1
Objective Knowing that any apparent correction of a scoliosis curve that occurs during rigid brace treatment for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) can be expected to be lost over time, the purpose of this prospective interventional study was to evaluate the stability of the spine 5 years...
- Does bracing alter the natural history of Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis? Ogilvie, J.; Nelson, L.; Chettier, R.; Ward, K. // Scoliosis (17487161);2009 Supplement 2, Vol. 4, Special section p1
Background Orthotic treatment of children with AIS is a generally accepted treatment option. Failure of bracing to halt curve progression has been reported in 20% or more of patients, and it is known that some curves in children with AIS will not progress even if untreated. Success and failure...
