Neuromuscular Scoliosis (NMS) is the second most common form of scoliosis. It occurs in children with underlying medical conditions that affects their neurological system and/or muscular system. It is caused by poor muscle control, weakness or paralysis and neurological problems.
It is common in children with spina bifida or cerebral palsy although not all children with neuromuscular conditions develop NMS.
Spinal bracing may provide stability when sitting and walking, but unlike the idiopathic scoliosis, bracing will not prevent the progression of NMS curves.
The type of brace for NMS limits motion and the soft foam edges provide maximum comfort. The sthe spinal bracing is
The orthosis limits motion and the soft foam edges provide maximum comfort. The lightweight Fuzion Spinal Orthosis allows for anterior, posterior, and lateral control and is easier to fit on patients who need assistance putting on the orthosis.
