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.


TSC Peer-To-Peer Support Program

If you or your teen would like to meet other families who are on the scoliosis journey, we’ve created a structured program to provide you with emotional and social support during this time.

Please note that at this time, this program is only available for current clients of The ScoliClinic.

Check out all the details of our Peer-To-Peer Support Program HERE


TSC Connect

We understand that it’s isn’t always possible for you to bring your child for treatment with our team. We acknowledge barriers such as geographical location, finances, or scheduling, and so we created our YouTube channel with the goal of improving accessibility for families. TSC Connect is a platform for you to access free scoliosis resources from home.

With online workouts becoming more and more popular, we designed scoliosis-friendly workouts that your teen can do at home – and here are a few of our favourites. Be sure to check out our full channel HERE to see more workouts, educational videos, interviews, and more.

*Please remember that although these workout are designed to help your child maintain your fitness with scoliosis-friendly movements, they will not necessarily prevent progression of the curve. These workouts do NOT replace individualized consultation and treatment by a Scoliosis-trained Physiotherapist – in our 1:1 sessions, our therapists will prescribe curve-specific exercises to help your child achieve specific goals.
