The Early Stage Scoliosis Intervention Treatment Experience
Can I combine spinal bracing with the Early Stage Scoliosis Intervention program?
Yes, although it is not recommended unless the patient is at a high risk for the spinal curvature progressing to surgical threshold (as determined by a scoliscore of 180 or greater). While the brace cannot be worn during the actual treatment, patients may chose to wear the brace at night or during non-treatment time. The use of “forced correction” is generally not recommended due to its general ineffectiveness, potential to increase body disfigurement, and its tendency to cause muscle atrophy (weakness) in long term users.
