Re: Spine Cor brace
We have had several members who have tried the Spinecor brace over the past few years. If you do a search in the Nonsurgical Forum you should be able to find their posts - let me know if you have any problems doing this and I'll do my best to help.
For some reason we don't hear about this brace so much anymore, but if I remember correctly we do have one current member - CamelHumpbackChick - who has one. Hopefully if we have any Spinecor wearing "lurkers" they will see this and post too
The brace is certainly agreed to be much more comfortable and less obvious under clothes than a hard plastic TLSO. There is some uncertainty as to whether it is an effective brace or not, but bracing in general is often a controversial subject anyway. I would ask your daughter's consultant for his opinion on whether the Spinecor is likely to help prevent her curves from progressing, and trust his or her expertise.
[SIZE="1"]37 years old, diagnosed with infantile idiopathic scoliosis at 6 months old with curves of 62(T) and 40(L) degrees. Casting and Milwaukee braces until surgery at 10 - ant release/pos fusion T1-T12, halo traction. Post op cast and then TLSO. Further surgery at 18 (ant release/pos fusion extended to L3 to include lumbar curve, costoplasty) and 25 (another costoplasty). Fusion extended to L4 at 33 (XLIF with 4 pedicle screws and two short rods). Pre-op curves: 76(T) and 70(L). Post-op curves: 45(T) and 35(L). Diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome aged 34; scoliosis almost certainly due to this rather than being idiopathic.[/SIZE]
