Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis: Treatment with the Wilmington Brace. A Comparison of Full-Time and Part-Time Use*

To determine whether part-time and full-time bracing had been equally effective in preventing progression of the curve, the clinical records and the radiographs of 188 patients who had adolescent idiopathic scoliosis were reviewed.

Effectiveness of treatment with a brace in girls who have adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. A prospective, controlled study based on data from the Brace Study of the Scoliosis Research Society.

In a prospective study by the Scoliosis Research Society, 286 girls who had adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, a thoracic or thoracolumbar curve of 25 to 35 degrees, and a mean age of twelve years and seven months were followed to determine the effect of treatment with observation only, an underarm plastic brace, and nighttime surface electrical stimulation.

Electrical stimulation for idiopathic scoliosis.

To evaluate the effectiveness of lateral electrical spinal stimulation for idiopathic scoliosis, 87 patients treated with this modality were reviewed retrospectively and no significant difference in the probability of progression was demonstrated.

A Meta-Analysis of the Efficacy of Non-Operative Treatments for Idiopathic Scoliosis*†

It was found that use of the Milwaukee brace or another thoracolumbosacral orthosis for twenty-three hours per day effectively halted progression of the curve.
