I would like to recommend the spinecor brace because it is sooo good. You can't see it under clothes, it's comfortable (well, as comfortable as a brace can be :p) and it's not as hot or sticky as a rigid brace. It works just as well and even better than a rigid brace.
You guys should talk to your parents because you are seriously wasting your time with rigid braces.
Good luck!

I could not find a doctor locally who would recommend a Spinecor. I agree that it should be much more comfortable to wear but the local Docs didn't like what they had read about its effacy. Spinecor & Triac looked like good alternatives (to me) to rigid TLSOs but the Docs thought otherwise.

Actually, my doctor did not bring up the Spinecor brace after my diagnosis. My mom found it when she was researching online. Visit

for clinical trials and information about the brace.

Hi Bonnie,


What kind of correction are you getting with the brace ? Do you encounter any problems with the straps ? How often do you get them changed ? Sorry for all the questions... I'm also looking into the SpineCor brace :D

Hi Celia,

The only problems I have with the straps is that they tend to unsnap easily. I fixed this by tightening the snaps with some needlenose pliers. I usually wash the straps once a week in the washing machine with some Woolite, and they never need to be replaced.
I visit Montreal every four months for a checkup with the doctor who created the brace, but there are physicians who distribute them in the US now. You usually wear the brace 20 hours a day and can have it off in about two years depending on your curvature.
I'd be happy to answer any other questions
:)

Hi Bonnie...

Thanks for replying. What kind of correction are you getting with the SpineCor brace. ? Are you from Canada ? Oh, another thing....how much does the brace cost ? I've read reports that it costs something like $5,000.00.

The brace costs $3,000 and I'm American. I live in Chicago so it's not too far from Canada.
What type of correction? Ooo- at the moment I'm not sure of the medical term. I will go back to the diagnosis papers and check, but I have an S curve that requires 4 straps.
Hold on a second, I'll get back to you with the correction...
