Spinal Orthotics and Spinal Instability
During your consultation, our practitioners listen to your concerns as they develop a plan of care.
The Collier team also has extensive experience helping pediatric and adult patients with spinal instability.
Our specialist care includes both injuries and congenital birth disorders which can include fractures, bone and joint disorders, spinal disorders, and neuromuscular disorders.
After being referred by your doctor, Collier practitioners will fit you for the device during a one-on-one consultation.
From mild treatments to extreme deformities, Collier practitioners can assess and provide custom-fitted or custom-designed orthoses to fit their patients’ individual needs.
Treating Youth Scoliosis
Our CCS paneled practitioners treat pediatric patients with systems developed from their work with Shriners Hospitals
We work closely with the family and pediatric care team to provide an orthosis that will meet the needs of the patient and their comfort for the best possible outcome. You can read about a patient with spinal instability recently treated at Collier, and her Mom’s report on the positive outcome.
The ideal brace for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis is the Boston TLSO (thoracic-lumbar-sacral orthosis) worn full-time (18-23 hours/day). Studies have shown that bracing can successfully prevent curve progression in the overwhelming majority of patients. The Boston TLSO fits under the arms and around the rib cage, lower back, and hips.
