Spinal Orthoses
Spinal Orthoses are divided into flexible and rigid supports. They are also defined according to which portion of the vertebral column they stabilize. Therefore a CO is a cervical orthosis and a TLSO would be a thoraco-lumbo-sacral orthosis. Each type of orthosis is effective on specific areas of the spine
The spine can be likened to a slinky. When one segment of the spine moves it creates motion above and below it. Due to this inherent motion when treating the spine it is necessary to treat both above and below the involved area
Spinal Supports and Elastic Binders
-Flexible Spinal Supports are primarily used to aid abdominal compression, restriction of motion, muscle relaxation, and postural realignment. Elastic binders with rigid posterior panels or corsets and are offered in different variations for treatment of the thoracic, lumbar, and sacral spine.
-Elastic Binders with Rigid Posterior Panels:
Elastic binders are effective in aiding in abdominal compression, muscle relaxation, some restriction of motion, and postural realignment. Often they have a rigid posterior panel that is inserted into a pocket in the back of the orthosis. The panel is heated and molded to the patient's back. This creates a rigid posterior panel that helps to restrict motion and to provide additional support
Indications:
Low back pain, Disc herniations, post-operative use, neurofibromatosis, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injuries
Spinal Supports and Corsets
Corsets: These orthoses utilize a fabric construction with stays (plastic, metal, springs) to give additional support and help reduce excessive motion of the spine. The stays are customized to fit the patient and to aid in postural realignment.
Indications:
Low back pain, Disc herniations, post-operative use, neurofibromatosis, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injuries
