has anyone tried theraflex or a spinecore brace?
 
Hi there,
I have been doing a lot of googling on scoliosis lately and I've discovered 2 new treatments that I didn't know existed: theraflex and a spinecor brace for adults.
Has anyone tried either of these and can you tell me about your experiences?
Many thanks
:)

I've not got any personal experience with either, but the Spinecor Brace seems to have helped a handful of US-based adults with scoliosis to manage their pain (rather than to actually give permanent correction). It's difficult to get hold of in the UK though a couple of clinics will prescribe it privately.

I am a lot more wary about the Theraflex thing. It was being heavily marketed by just one guy who made claims to have "studied at Cambridge" on Facebook (though he hadn't in the traditional sense of doing an actual degree at the famous uni there) and the device itself could be used by complimentary therapists rather than medical staff and didnt seem to have any serious science or studies behind it at all. It seems to have dropped off the radar in recent years. It would be interesting to hear from anyone who has real, unbiased experience with this though.
