What is SpineCor Treatment?
SpineCor Treatment is for Children and Adults with Scoliosis or Hyperkyphosis.
SpineCor Treatment uses a spinal brace called a ‘SpineCor Brace’ and exercises when required. Exercises can also be used independently of the SpineCor Brace with those patients who have very small curves.
Patients receiving SpineCor Treatment will have their curves classified according to a sophisticated computer system called SAS-WEB and reviewed at regular intervals for brace adjustments or exercise progression according to a specific treatment protocol.request an appointment
What is a SpineCor Brace?
SpineCor Braces are customised to the needs of each patient. The lower part of the brace acts as an anchor for the upper corrective part of the brace, whose bands wrap around the body to control the position of the spine. The corrective bands push, pull or twist the trunk in order to off-load or improve the position of the spine.
The family of SpineCor Braces pictured below all share the same basic design characteristics of an upper corrective part and a lower pelvic anchor part. Each SpineCor Brace offers different design features. Your local SpineCor Brace Provider will be able to advise you on the most appropriate version for you.

SpineCor Treatment will slow down or stop the progression of a child’s scoliosis during the remainder of growth. It may even reduce the size of the curve.
