Cervical Orthosis: Cervical orthoses (COs) support the occiput and chin in order to decrease range of motion (ROM) from C2-C5. A thoracic extension can be added to increase motion restriction and treat C6-T2 injuries. COs generally are used to support stable spine conditions, and are listed below from least to most supportive
Thoracic Orthosis: Thoraco Lumbar Sacral Orthoses (TLSOs) are used mainly to treat fractures between T6 and L3. Every TLSO is designed to provide support and immobilization of the thoracic and lumbar regions following various surgical procedures/ traumatic injuries. TLSO are commonly used to help treat post-operative thoracic/lumbar fusion, laminectomy or discectomy, compression fractures, degenerative disc disease, osteoporosis, single column spinal instability immobilization, and facet syndrome.
Lumbar Orthosis: LSO’s are used for the relief of low back pain associated with degenerative disc disorders, trauma, or postural deformities.
