In short Orthopedic surgeons lack knowledge about braces. This is the opinion of Prof. Dr. Robert Pflugmacher, spinal surgeon and Chief Physician at Mechernich hospital. In his experience, braces such as the Spinova Support Plus are an indispensable element of multimodal post-operative care.
- Changing demographics have led to a significant increase in the number of spinal surgeries.
- The most successful treatment for specific back pain – for example, as a result of scoliosis, degenerative changes, vertebral fractures, tumors or spondylolisthesis – is a combination of surgeries, orthopedic engineering and physiotherapy.
- Working together with orthotists is a crucial factor. They know the products in detail and can instruct patients how to use the braces.
- Braces provide relief, correct and immobilize, offering vital support during rehabilitation. They can be prescribed with no budgetary constraints.
