Scoliosis is a condition where an individual's spine curves three dimensionally; consisting of a side-to-side and rotational component. The most common type is idiopathic scoliosis. If it is detected while the spine is growing treatment may be indicated. The Gold standard for conservative treatment is hard shell custom bracing.
There are different types of braces. All come with various styles and philosophies to treat the condition and halt curve progression.
Orthobility Bracing provides two types of scoliosis braces:
Custom Gensingen Cheneau: Designed with a 3-dimensional body scan and x-rays. The information is sent to Germany and the brace is fabricated in Boston, USA. The shell is sent back to our shop to be fine-tuned & fitted on the client. Because this custom spinal brace is not made in Canada, it does not fit the criteria to be covered by government ADP funding. It may however, be covered under your private health insurance. The Gensingen brace is an over-corrective brace.
Custom Scoliosis Brace: Designed through a torso cast done on site & turned into a body mold of the client. The brace is crafted, fine-tuned and fitted on site. As such, it fits the criteria covered through the government ADP funding model. The client's portion would be 25% of the cost.
Both braces are effective, but are created differently. Make sure you are getting the brace best suited for your needs and funding model. Contact your private insurance and ADP (PH:416-326-6506) to get complete details on coverage for each, or contact our specialists to get details.

Nothing ruins a golf game more than an injury. Whether it is damage from a day on the course or from some other sort of activity or accident, it's difficult to fully enjoy and perform when you have one or many aches and pains. Be it an ankle, knee or hip injury, they all affect your performance. Whether it is a wrist, elbow or shoulder problem, your swing is just not right nor comfortable to feel and perform your best. Then, there is the dreaded back pain. Many of us have it in some form or another, but it is how we deal and manage it, which determines how well we can perform.
Many people reach for pain relief in the form of a oral or topical pain killer, muscle relaxant or anti-inflamatory drug. This may provide a partial solution and temporary relief, but to get complete recovery that lasts, the combination of a trip to your physio or massage therapist and a properly fitted support is your best course of action. A good support, be it custom or semi custom can significantly reduce pain and increase performance. Combined with a simple treatment plan is a surefire way to have you back on course ASAP.
A perfectly fitted brace or support from Orthobility Bracing will go a long way to better health and a lower scoring game. Make sure to enjoy you summer and summer activities to the fullest, with a quick tune up from your favourite therapy partners, Orthobility Bracing and Mississauga Physiotherapy & Orthopedic Center.
