Scoliosis Brace – Static vs Dynamic

Which Scoliosis Brace Should I Choose?

The introduction of a new concept for the treatment of scoliosis with corrective movement principles lead to the development of a revolutionary dynamic scoliosis brace in the early 1990’s it has not yet caught hold in much of the conventional medical world. The standard of care in that arena is still the hard or static scoliosis brace, despite the fact that studies have proven the static approach does not work. Take a look at a recent study showing the lack of effectiveness of hard bracing to reduce the incidents of surgery in a scoliosis population.
