  Title Management of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis using the SpineCor brace system: A case study [case report]
Journal J Pediatr Matern & Fam Health - Chiropr. 2011 Fall;2011(4):Online access only p 115-119
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To report on the use of the SpineCor system dynamic brace on a patient with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis.

Clinical Features: A 10-year-old girl presented with a right thoracic type one adolescent idiopathic scoliosis measuring 36 degrees.

Intervention and Outcome: Specific corrective movement was implemented utilizing the dynamic Spinecor bracing system to address adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. Elastic straps were positioned specifically to correct the rotational and translational distortions of the right thoracic type 1 scoliosis using a compressive mechanism.  The brace was worn for 20 hours per day for 8 months, at which time a 100% correction was noted.  At her one year follow-up, the correction remained.

Conclusion: The case of a ten year old female with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis utilizing the SpineCor system dynamic brace was presented.   The brace proved to be an effective treatment for idiopathic scoliosis.  Further research is warranted to support these findings and to compare the SpineCor brace to other non-invasive treatments for idiopathic scoliosis.
