Boston Brace for Scoliosis
The dawn of this revolution started in the 1970’s at Children’s Hospital Boston when our founder, Bill Miller, and a number of the top orthopedic specialists experimented with a new way to treat Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS). Amazingly, this bracing system is still considered the Gold Standard of scoliosis treatment. Our results are used as a measuring stick for the industry. Please see some of our recent results. Subsequently, numerous other bracing innovations blossomed, including a new way to approach neuromuscular scoliosis.
Determination of brace design
The decision about which brace to wear depends on the type & location of curve. For example, the curve may be an “S” type or double curve affecting the thoracic & lumbar regions of the spine. This is the most common type of curve in AIS and would require the trademark Boston Brace TLSO. Other options are available based on the precise location of the curve(s).
