Scoliosis Bracing for Kids and Teens

Custom spinal bracing may be a crucial part of the treatment process for some people with scoliosis or Scheuermann’s Kyphosis.

For growing kids and teenagers, bracing can position the spine in such a way to encourage symmetrical vertebral growth to slow progression of the curve.

Over the years, we’ve developed a closely collaborative relationship with Certified Orthotists who are trained in 3-dimensional bracing techniques to maximize the outcomes of our clients. The team at  Hodgson Orthopedic Group has locations in Coquitlam and Surrey (our satellite clinic is located here!) to service the surrounding areas.

In addition to collaborating on shared clients, we’re continually holding dialogue to improve our combined approach to conservative management of scoliosis. To read more about their methods for scoliosis bracing, click here.

During sessions with your ScoliClinic therapist, you can discuss if custom spinal bracing is recommended for your child or teen.


Success Stories

How is success defined? In the field of scoliosis, decreasing the curve is the default definition of success.
But is that always the case?

Whether your teen is receiving treatment from a Physiotherapist, Chiropractor, Orthotist, Physician… the most important thing to reflect on is what success means to you and your child.

We’re getting ready to share a few stories from families on the scoliosis journey who have defined success in their own way, and achieved it!
