CHIROPRACTIC RESEARCH

Corsets, braces and splints are used in chiropractic treatment. A common application of braces is used to treat children with idiopathic scoliosis, or curvature of the spine.

Back braces are recommended only for children (girls between the ages of 11 and 13, and boys between 12 and 14 years old). The primary goal of orthotic treatment involving a back brace is to stop the progression of the curvature; braces do not normally reverse curvature that has already taken place.
