Back and spinal orthoses

For increased support and comfortable and safe rehabilitation.

Carefully chosen specific products

The orthopedic treatment of the upper body is very delicate because the vertebral area requires a lot of precautions. Médicus offers a range of specific products for this purpose such as cervical collar and lumbar corset. Our graduated orthotist-prosthetists will work diligently to provide you with the right product for your back and upper body pains.

Back and spinal orthoses

Médicus dorsal orthoses are designed to limit flexion and/or extension as well as lateral trunk movements, thereby improving stability of the spine. They are designed according to the restriction they exert on movement, as well as according to the comfort they provide. Their dynamic action offers the perfect balance between freedom of movement and the support needed for rehabilitation.

A lumbar orthosis is recommended in the following cases:

  • Crushed vertebrae
  • Herniated disk
  • Lumbago
  • Vertebrae fracture or sprain
  • Treating hyperkyphosis and scoliosis
  • Spinal immobilization: instability and postsurgery
  • Spondyloarthropathy
  • Dorsalgia

Neck orthoses

In the event of a fracture or other injury to the cervical vertebrae, sometimes just wearing a cervical orthosis alone does not provide enough support: an orthosis that will also immobilize the head becomes necessary. Médicus offers different types, such as Halo and Minerve that can be tailored to the needs of your treatment.

A neck or cervical orthosis is recommended in the following cases:

  • Cervical traction and immobilization
  • Cervical fracture or surgery
  • Immobilization of the cervical and dorsal rachis
  • Lesions stemming from trauma, rheumatism or neuro-muscular problems
