Neck & Spine Orthoses

Cervical Orthoses (CO)
Cervical Orthoses (CO) are used to stabilize the cervical spine. They come in soft and rigid materials which range from flexible foam for minimal support to thermoplastic for maximum support. Indications for a CO include:
  • Cervical Trauma
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Post Operative
  • Cervical Instability

Cervical Thoracic Orthoses (CTO)
Cervical Thoracic Orthoses (CTO) are used to provide support and immobilization to the cervical and upper thoracic spine. They are designed to provide anterior/posterior, medial/lateral and rotational control. Indications for a CTO include:

  • Cervical and Upper Thoracic Spine Trauma
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Post Operative
  • Cervical and Upper Thoracic Spine Instability

HALO Systems
HALO Systems are used when maximum control of the cervical spine is needed. A HALO rigidly fixates the head in relation to the thoracic spine providing maximum immobilization. Indications for a HALO System include:

  • Cervical Spine Trauma
  • Hangman’s Fracture
  • Severe Instability of the Cervical Spine
  • Post Operative Stabilization

Additionally, there is now a pinless system that provides the same support of the traditional HALO system.

LumboSacral Orthoses (LSO)
LumboSacral Orthoses (LSO) are utilized to stabilize the lumbosacral spine through intra-abdominal pressures. These pressures stabilize the spine in all three planes. Indications for an LSO include:

  • Low Back Pain
  • Herniated Disc
  • Post Operative
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Lumbar Fracture
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Stenosis

Hyperextension Orthoses
A Hyperextension Orthosis utilizes three points of pressure to stabilize the thoracic spine. Indications for a Hyperextension Orthosis may include:

  • Anterior Vertebral Body Fracture
  • Kyphosis as a result of Osteoporosis
  • Scheurmann’s Kyphosis
  • Degenerative Disc Disease

ThoracoLumbar Sacral Orthoses (TLSO)
A Thoracolumbar Sacral Orthosis (TLSO) is used to provide rigid support and stabilize the spine. Indications for a TLSO may include:

  • Post Operative
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Spinal Fracture
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Spondylosis
  • Stenosis
  • Disc Herniation
  • Osteoarthritis

Scoliosis Orthoses
A Scoliosis Orthosis is used to provide corrective forces to the lumbar and thoracic spine. There are several different styles of Scoliosis Orthoses. Indications for a Scoliosis Orthosis may include:

  • Scoliosis with an apex of L5 through T8
  • Excessive Lumbar Lordosis associated with Scoliosis
