You Can Trust Us With Your Custom Back Braces
Whether you are planning spinal surgery, struggle with a back injury or need corrections for a spinal disorder like Scoliosis, custom-made and custom-fit spinal orthotics are available at Etobicoke SportMed.
Spinal orthoses, or orthopedic back braces, range from an “off the shelf” soft support to a complex, custom made rigid orthotic. Like other orthotics, a spinal orthosis is named for the area of the neck/spine/back that is treated by the orthotic device.
- TLSO: Thoracic-Lumbar-Sacral Orthosis. It is used to stabilize the spine after surgery or for healing of fractured vertebrae.
- Semi-rigid TLSO: Semi-rigid Thoracic-Lumbar-Sacral Orthosis. It provides less coverage than a molded TLSO, above, and might also be used after a spinal injury.
- Semi-rigid LSO: Semi-rigid Lumbar-Sacral Orthosis. It is shorter than a TLSO and starts below your ribs. Used after lower-back surgery or injury, it allows more flexibility.
- CTLSO: Cervical Thoracic Lumbar Sacral Orthosis. It may be custom molded or custom fit to support weakened or damaged areas of the spine and to stabilize unwanted curves.
