Yes: It keeps the curve from getting worse is the goal of treatment keep you curve small so but it won't straighten or correct the curve unless your in the brace I have seen one child with a profound faith whose curve straightened one in 12 years anecdotal not science the isence supports treating curves over20 degrees in growing children with a brace but the difference i braced and unbraced are small. ...Read more
My coccyx is abnormally protruded that i cannot do crunches without it grinding on the floor. Do i need to wear a body brace to realign my spine?
Unlikely: I doubt there is anything abnormal about your coccyx. The easiest way to determine the cause of the problems is to see a doctor, have the area examined and x rays done. ...Read more
I'm 20, and i wanna use a brace to straighten up my postural kyphosis, some say it's too late. So, is it gonna work or just deform more my spine ?
Not really: When a person is still in their growing phase, a brace can be used to potentially correct an increased kyphosis. When growth is complete, this opportunity for correction is lost. A brace may hold the spine in a straightened position in an adult, but as soon as the brace is removed, the kyphosis is still there. ...Read more
On my 20s, i know that is gonna prevent the deformity if I use the brace for my postural kyphosis, but is it gonna cause any bad issues for my spine?
Will likely not be: Helpful at all. You are done growing at age 20, so there is no reason to have a brace for this diagnosis. You have to see a physical therapist ; learn some very effective trunk stabilization programs, core strengthening programs, postural educations. The brace will not change your deformity, ; will only likely cause pressure points ; inconvenience. See a spine surgeon if you are having symptoms. ...Read more

Dad is 68 years, 156 CM tall, 105+ kg weight, he's hardly walking due to knee & spine lumber pains, i heard about knee braces, are they good, which type?
He should see doc: Seems like he in quite a bit of trouble. When knee pain is so severe, braces probably won't do much at all. I suggest getting him to see a doctor who can evaluate and work up a treatment plan that is feasible for him. Medication, physical/occupational therapy can be tried. Injections into knees, back/epidural can be done in some cases. Surgical intervention maybe needed. Good luck ; happy new year. ...Read more
Strong muscles: Unless you have scoliosis (curvature of the spine), the best way to improve posture is to strengthen the muscles that maintain posture in the proper position. Women have less upper body strength generally, concentrate on improving that & your back and abd muscles. Then your posture will improve, as well as your appearance, health, self-esteem,and your ability to work and play. ...Read more
