A new study in the New England Journal of Medicine shows that when children diagnosed with high-risk scoliosis wear back braces, their condition significantly improves and the devices help them avoid spinal surgery. The study found that 72% of children treated with a brace improved and did not need surgery, and the longer they wore the brace during the day, the better their chances were at avoiding surgery.
