Scoliosis Bracing for Kids and Teens

Custom spinal bracing may be a crucial part of the treatment process for some people with scoliosis or Scheuermann’s Kyphosis.

For growing kids and teenagers, bracing can position the spine in such a way to encourage symmetrical vertebral growth to slow progression of the curve.

We collaborate with Orthotist Grace Addison of InMotion Orthotics (who is located just down the road from us in Southport!) to support those kids and teens who would benefit from a custom spinal brace.
During sessions with your ScoliClinic therapist, you can discuss if custom spinal bracing is recommended for your child or teen.

TSC Connect

We get it – it’s not always possible for you to bring your child for treatment with our team. We acknowledge barriers such as geographical location, finances, or scheduling, and so we created our YouTube channel with the goal of improving accessibility for families. TSC Connect is a platform for you to access free scoliosis resources from home.

With online workouts becoming more and more popular, we designed scoliosis-friendly workouts that your teen can do at home – and here are a few of our favourites. Be sure to check out our full channel HERE to see more workouts, educational videos, interviews, and more.

*Please remember that although these workout are designed to help your child maintain your fitness with scoliosis-friendly movements, they will not necessarily prevent progression of the curve. These workouts do NOT replace individualized consultation and treatment by a Scoliosis-trained Physiotherapist – in our 1:1 sessions at The Scoliosis Collective, our therapists will prescribe curve-specific exercises to help your child achieve specific goals.
