A Dynamic Chest Compressor (DCC) brace by itself is useless unless it is made correctly and worn for the correct daily number of hours according to each period of the treatment, and applied along with an appropriate program of exercises. The deformity’s flexibility must be assessed for prognosis about the treatment. The orthosis must be constructed according to each individual deformity through measurements of the chest and deformity (using a plaster cast mold and/or a caliper rule and/or a scan). Appropriate medical instructions must be given for a correct treatment.
Specialized medical follow-up with photographic documentation and appropriate conduct for solution of eventual complications, like overcorrection, are essential for a successful treatment (see examples below).
Our method is a medical procedure and we do not recommend non-medical professionals to be in charge of it. For patients from other countries, our supervision can be provided by e-mail only after a first visit because many details must be explained to the patients in the beginning of the treatment.
DCC 1 – DYNAMIC CHEST COMPRESSOR 1
DCC 2 – DYNAMIC CHEST COMPRESSOR 2
Since the end of 2015 the Adjustable Chest Compressor (ADCC) brace became our brace of choice because it makes the treament easier for the doctor and patient. See the video to know how is our ADCC
EXERCISES USING DCC ORTHOSES
The Dynamic Remodeling (DR) method. In the presence of scoliosis the trunk side bending must be done predominantly to the convexity side of the main curve. See in the article.
