Description
Purpose : To evaluate the stabilizing effects of a Fit Cure-Spine® semi-rigid thoracolumbar orthosis and wearer satisfaction after lumbar surgery. Methods : In study 1, the spinal angle, spinal motion angle, and distribution of load were measured in 8 adult male volunteers when the orthosis was worn (1) with no custom-made stay (CMS), (2) with a CMS in the prone position (P-CMS), and (3) with a CMS in the prone position and decreased lordosis (DP-CMS). In study 2, pain scale scores and responses to a questionnaire were recorded in 40 consecutive patients who underwent lumbar spinal surgery in our hospital. Results : In study 1, the mean lumbar lordosis when standing was similar to that in the prone position. When the trunk was bent forward, loads on the back support in P-CMS and DP-CMS were concentrated at the center of the CMS, unlike those for No-CMS. In study 2, there was a significant decrease in postoperative wound pain after wearing the Fit Cure-Spine orthosis for 2 weeks. Most patients who wore the orthosis were satisfied with their pain outcome. Conclusion : Adjustment to lumbar lordosis and the prone position was restricted in volunteers wearing the Fit Cure-Spine with a CMS.
