Does rigid bracing provide the best outcome for children with neurological onset scoliosis?

Martin J. Matthews, MPhil, Unknown,



Rigid bracing has been the mainstay of orthotic intervention for children with neurological onset scoliosis. The use of rigid braces, however, often do not provide the expected outcomes clinicians are hoping for with Cobb angles curve increasing over time [1], linked to worsening sitting ability and hip pain [2]. The time has come for a review of this particular type of scoliosis intervention.
