View Full Version : Spinecor - 6 month review

10th December 2007, 04:37 PM
Hi, we have just returned from Immy's 6 month review with Ashley Cole & Andrew Mills. Fabulous news! Out of brace xray measured 27 or 25 degrees (depending on who you asked!). This is down from 38 degrees 6 months ago. :hammer: Needless to say we are THRILLED. Spinecor is incredible. I wish every child had access to it. This does not mean that she WILL avoid surgery but that there is slightly more chance of avoiding it. At the least, the good news is that she won't need the op any time soon, therefore buying important growing time...

Congratulations, I am so happy for all of you that the curve is actually being reduced. You're right that it might not prevent surgery but at least she will get in some good growth time. Good Job Mom.

Wow, that's what I call a result! :D Fantastic news that she will have more 'growing time', even if she does need surgery in the long run. I'm SO chuffed for you both :spin:

Congratulations on the great update! I really like the concept of the Spinecor brace for mild to moderate curves. It has a lot of potential to get things going in the right direction while still allowing for good muscle tone and flexibility. Some curves are stubborn, of course, especially when there's a vertebral anomaly at the cause, but whenever possible I think Spinecor should be considered.

That's brilliant news Laura. Spinecor was obviously the right decision!

Congratz!! ;)

Can u say to me ( not english ppl :D ) what is Spinecor ??

Spinecor is a type of brace Arthur, only instead of being rigid, it uses flexible bands which wrap around the body to hold the curve stable - and even offer some correction in some cases too! I'm afraid my description is a bit poor as I have no first-hand experience of braces, but I'm sure the others will come on to explain it better to you! :D

Arthur, Gilly's description was perfect. You could have a look on their website - www.spinecorporation.com (http://www.spinecorporation.com). Spinecor is generally used for pre-adolescent children with smallish curves, however I have heard of older people using it for pain management. It is not a miracle cure - nothing is - but I strongly believe that it offers the best option for many children. I think it's a terrible shame that it's not well known in this country; We only found out about it through the NSF forum and we met a lot of hostility from various people when we expressed an interest in trying it out.

There are two other members of this forum who have daughters wearing Spinecor, anyone wanting to know more, please pm me!
