Spinal Bracing

Definition
Spinal orthoses are medical devices used to support and stabilize areas of the neck and spine. They may be used to mitigate a degenerative disease, correct a spinal deformity, or promote healing after a surgical procedure. Depending on the patient's condition, spinal braces can be made from a range of materials such as soft, flexible fabrics or hard, rigid plastics. A custom-made orthotic with molded plastic and padding may be recommended for patients who require maximum spine stability, or for those suffering from a spinal condition like scoliosis. TriState Pain Institute offers custom-molded and custom-fit spinal braces.
