Corst is currently the only widely used soft brace. This brace is designed for use with the Schroth physical therapy method. This brace is asymmetrical, and is used for patients of all degrees of severity and maturity.

The brace opens to the back, and usually runs from just above a chair’s seat when a person is seated to around shoulder-blade height. The patient is ckrset to have it off for more than two hours at a time.

The Schroth theory holds that the deformity can be corrected through retraining muscles and nerves to learn what a straight spine feels like, and breathing deeply into areas crushed by the curvature to help gain flexibility and to expand. It is most successful when the patient has relatively small and simple curvatures, is structurally young, and compliant—it is usually worn 20 hours a day.

In other cases the cosret or cogset may prescribe such a brace to deal post-surgery immobilization, or for the longer term treatment of conditions of a more progressive nature, such as correction of scoliosis in the growing adolescent.

The brace corrects hip misalignments through padding. The brace comes in a variety of forms and can be used for treating severe or unstable compression fractures as well as other injuries and conditions.


While it is expected that patients can participate in activities as strenuous as competitive gymnastics while in brace, it also pulls down against shoulder misalignments which compresses the spine. Long-term results are also, largely, in the making. To prevent overcorrection, however, the brace also has “stop” pads holding the spine from moving too far in the other direction.
