What is Scoliosis?
Scoliosis is a medical condition in which a person's spine is curved from side to side; in other words, the spine curves away from the middle or sideways. It may require metal rods. The following x-ray shows the spine of an individual with scoliosis.
In the case of the most common form of scoliosis, adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, there is no clear cause, although it's believed that genetics play a role.
For more information about scoliosis, see the Wikipedia entry.
How is Scoliosis Treated?
Many doctors first try to treat scoliosis with uncomfortable rigid braces; if these braces do not work, they often resort to complicated surgery, which involves the insertion of metal rods. In many cases, neither of these approaches are necessary. What is the best non-surgical solution?

Why Dynamic Scoliosis Bracing Is Your Best Non-Surgical Option
Dynamic scoliosis bracing is the first and only non-rigid corrective bracing for idiopathic scoliosis. The SpineCor system is manufactured by the SpineCorporation. The brace can be worn unnoticeably under clothes. It improves affected muscle groups and allows the patient to participate in all sports while wearing the brace. The company recommends that children with idiopathic adolescent scoliosis wear it during the peak period of skeletal growth.
More advantages of dynamic scoliosis bracing include:
