Abstract provided by Publisher
This article presents the most commonly used types of spinal orthoses, their effectiveness in the prevention of progression of scoliosis, and the impact of various factors on treatment outcome in patients qualified for conservative treatment. Spinal orthoses achieved the apex of their popularity in the 1960s, but in later years their role in the treatment of scoliosis has diminished. Nevertheless, the results of long-range observation of the outcome of conservative treatment with spinal orthoses have shown that this is the only treatment method other than surgery that can stop the progression of curvature of the spine.
