Milwaukee Brace

The purpose of the Milwaukee brace is to stabilize and prevent progression of a deformity in the spine. For this treatment to be successful, the brace must be worn and cared for properly.

When your child starts wearing the brace, it may seem uncomfortable and confining. The brace should be worn for increasing intervals during the day until your child can wear it 23 hours a day. Your physician may require a different time frame.
