What are they?

What do they do?

Indications for use:

Spinal and trunk supports are used to relieve lower back pain and prevent further back and spine injuries. This is very important for chronic pain such as Sciatica and Osteoporosis.

The two main approaches used in non-surgical scoliosis management are specific exercise routines and bracing. Our bracing solutions can be made from plastic (example right) or softer elastomeric materials (example left). Both braces encompass the torso and may have site specific panelling or cut-outs. The brace is typically worn for 21-23 hours per day.

A scoliosis brace is intended to delay or halt spinal curve progression in children or teens. In adults, braces are designed to provide positional support. 

As part of our treatment we recommend regular follow ups to monitor progression and an exercise program aimed at preventing stiff joints or weakened muscles. 

 

  • Juvenile Idiopathic Scoliosis.

  • Adult Idiopathic Scoliosis.

  • Kyphosis.

  • Poor postural support.

Dynamic

Supports.

What are they?

An elastomeric lycra support that is both lightweight and intimately fitting. The use of specific reinforcement panels helps to improve movement, control and function for people with neurological and musculoskeletal conditions. The supports can range from arm gauntlets to whole body suits and are fastened using velcro tabs and zips.

What do they do?

The compression against the skin  stimulates sensory receptors within the body to improve proprioception (body awareness) and influence muscle tone.

The sensory benefits are supported by the reinforcement panels which improve postural alignment and control of biomechanical movement.

 

Indications for use:

  • Poor postural support and development.

  • Poor sensory feedback.

  • Low muscle tone.

  • Dystonia.

  • Foot drop.

Elasticated

Supports.

Image for illustrative purposes only.

What are they?

Usually comprises a one piece elastic panel which wraps around the area of the lower back and is secured by a velcro strip and/or straps depending on the design. Some include semi-rigid uprights running adjacent to the spine to provide additional support.

What do they do?

Provide mild compression and support to the lower back. The support will also provide some thermal insulation (heat retention) which may be therapeutically helpful.

 

Indications for use:

  • Mild strains/ sprains.

  • Poor postural support.

  • Hernias.

Fabric

Supports.

Image for illustrative purposes only.

What are they?

A support for the lower back made from a cotton based fabric. The support is secured at the front with velcro straps. It has removable supportive struts at the back set in pockets and positioned either side of the spine. These are shaped to the spinal anatomy at supply.

What do they do?

Provide moderate control to the lower region of the back and act as a postural reminder to avoid movements which are likely to contribute to lower back pain.

 

Indications for use:

  • Moderate strains/ sprains.

  • Poor postural support.

  • Osteoporosis.

  • Osteoarthritic spinal changes.

  • Herniated or bulging interveterbal disc.

Spinal

Bracing.

Image for illustrative purposes only.

What are they?

Comprises a front and rear moldable thermoplastic shell with a padded lining. The front and back shells are secured to each other with velcro or buckle strapping. The shoulder straps help to provide rotational control. The brace can be extended to include a cervical collar or downgraded from a TLSO (full back) to a lumbosacral (lower back) brace. 

What do they do?

They offload the spine and provide immobilisation/ restrictions of the torso and neck to facilitate healing and prevent unwanted movements.

 

Indications for use:

  • Fracture management.

  • Chronic pain.

  • Herniated or bulging intervetebral disc.

  • Poor postural support.

  • Spinal instability. 

  • Spondylolisthesis/ Spondylolysis.

  • Connective tissue/ disc disease.

  • Severe strains/ sprains.
