Types of Scoliosis Braces
The two main types of braces used for scoliosis treatment include the Milwaukee brace and the thoracolumbosacral orthosis.
Patients can wear this scoliosis brace to correct any curve in the spine. This brace has a neck ring.
Thoracolumbosacral Orthosis (TLSO)
Patients can wear this brace to correct curves whose apex is at or below the eighth thoracic vertebra. The TLSO is an underarm brace, which means that it fits under the arm and around the rib cage, lower back, and hips.
