Scoliosis Orthoses

Used to provide corrective forces to the lumber and thoracic spine, this orthosis comes in many different styles.

Most common are the 23 hour Boston Brace (worn for 23 hours a day) or the nocturnal Providence Brace (worn during the night).

Indications for a Scoliosis Orthosis may include:

  • Infantile, Juvenile, and Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis
  • Neuromuscular Scoliotic Curves
  • Congenital Scoliotic Curves

Lumbosacral Orthoses

LSOs stabilize the lumbosacral spine through intra-abdominal pressure and provide pain relief by reducing pressure on individual vertebrae.

Indications for a Lumbosacral Orthosis may include:

  • Low Back Pain
  • Herniated Disc
  • Post Operative
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Lumbar Fracture
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Stenosis

Hyperextension Orthoses

This orthosis use three points of pressure to stabilize the thoracic spine.

Indications for a Hyperextension Orthosis may include:

  • Anterior Vertebral Body Fracture
  • Kyphosis (abnormal curvature of the spine) as a result of Osteoporosis
  • Scheumann’s Kyphosis
  • Degenerative Disc Disease

Thoracolumbar Sacral Orthoses

TLSOs are used to provide rigid support and stabilize the spine.

Indications for a TLSO may include:

  • Post Operative
  • Degenerative Disc disease
  • Spinal Fracture
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Spondylosis
  • Stenosis
  • Disc Herniation
  • Osteoarthritis

HALO Systems

Designed for maximum control of the cervical spine, Halos provide maximum immobilization of the head in relation to the thoracic spine.

Indications for a HALO System may include:

  • Cervical Spine Trauma
  • Hangman’s Fracture
  • Severe Instability of the Cervical Spine
  • Post Operative Stabilization

Cervical Thoracic Orthoses

Cervical Thoracic orthoses are designed to provide support and immobilization of the cervical and upper thoracic spine as well as provide anterior/posterior, medial/lateral and rotational control.

Indications for a Cervical Thoracic Orthosis may include:

  • Cervical and Upper Thoracic Spine Trauma
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Post Operative
  • Cervical and Upper Thoracic Spine Instability

Soft And Rigid Cervical Collars

These collars are used to stabilize the cervical spine and are made from flexible foam, for minimal support, and thermoplastic material, for maximum support.

Indications for Soft and Rigid Cervical Collars may include:

  • Cervical Trauma
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Post Operative
  • Cervical Instability
