Mode of Action

The SpineCor's Pain Relief Back Brace works by applying corrective movements to guide posture and spinal alignment in an optimal direction and then elastic corrective bands are used to hold the corrections by resisting the body's movement back to the abnormal position.

The elasticity of the corrective bands allow constant “correction, relaxation, correction, relaxation” which is in reality a corrective postural exercise. The brace is able to put a patient’s body through 10’s of 1000’s of repetitions per day instead of the 10-50 repetitions that are typical with other rehabilitation techniques.

The SpineCor's Pain Relief Back Brace creates dynamic spinal offloading and neuromuscular rehabilitation with the ultimate goal of neuromuscular integration.


The importance of treatment

Scoliosis and other spinal conditions can affect the “balance” of body posture and spinal alignment. A loss of normal spinal balance creates abnormal loading on the vertebra, discs, ligaments, joints, tendons, muscles and nerves. Over a relatively short period of time, abnormal loads on the body tissues alter their functions. Over a long enough period of time the structure of body tissues will change in response to the abnormal loading further compromising function.
These changes can damage the body .i.e. facet joint arthrosis, disc degeneration, nerve root irritation, spinal stenosis, all of which lead to pain. Promoting a change in the balance of the posture and the spine can help to correct the abnormal loading.
