Spinal orthoses are often prescribed for conditions such as cerebral palsy, osteoporosis, scoliotic deformities, spinal injuries and muscular dystrophy and also may be recommended after spinal surgery. The TLSO is a Thoracic, Lumbar, Sacral Orthosis and the LSO is a shorter orthosis, not covering the thoracic area of the spine.  A spinal orthotic (brace) is referred to as a Body Jacket when it is made of a rigid plastic shell that encircles the trunk with overlapping edges and stabilizing closures and provides a high degree of immobility.  At Sunshine P&O we custom fit spinal orthoses for adults and children.
