I was wondering if there was anyone from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and where the nearest place is to get a spinecor.

Hi Smoothie,

You can get a list of US doctors who use spine cor at spinecorporation.com. I know Dr. Sanders at the Shriners Hospital in Erie, PA uses the spine cor. Not like that's your backyard or anything but it's a lot closer than Montreal. Dr Sanders met with Dr Rivard(montreal, the spine cor "inventor") and did some training with him. Dr Rivard told me this himself on a phone call once. There is also a doctor in Maryland that uses the spine cor brace. Dr Sponsellor(spelling??) @ John Hopkins. Check out the website I listed.

Good luck to you!!!

Thanks a lot. We couldn't find a place in PA that did spinecor. I might get a spinecor but I'll probably get a boston brace because that's what the docter told us to get. Maybe I'll get a spinecor after my boston brace. I don't know. But it's good to know that there is a place in PA that does spinecor. (Although it may be far... :D)
