History of Cheneau

History of Cheneau Bracing Design

In France, Dr. Jacques Cheneau developed his first TLSO scoliosis brace and named it Cheneau in the 1970s. The Cheneau bracing concept uses pressure zones and expansion areas to de-rotate and elongate the spine in three dimensions. Goals for brace wearers are stabilization, at minimum, but the ultimate goal is some degree of spinal improvement.

Cheneau bracing is asymmetric and is different from most other TLSO scoliosis braces because it allows for Schroth corrective breathing while the patient wears it. The corrective breathing pattern is strategically created by applying pressure to the convex areas and voids at the concavities for breathing and expansion. A well-designed Cheneau brace should focus on three-dimensional correction of the spine in the coronal (frontal), transverse (rotational) and sagittal (side) planes.

Since its initial development, Cheneau bracing has been intertwined with the Schroth concept for scoliosis. Dr. Cheneau spent time with Katharina Schroth and Christa Lehnert-Schroth at the renowned Schroth clinic in Germany. After learning the Schroth concepts and immediately embracing this method of treatment, he figured out a way to incorporate it into his brace designs using the augmented Lehnert-Schroth curve-pattern classifications, which for decades have been the basis of successful Schroth scoliosis treatment.

Cheneau was the first brace developer to recognize that idiopathic scoliosis of the thoracic spine often involves flatback (thoracic lordosis) and should be treated with this understanding. This is one aspect of bracing where some scoliosis braces fall short and cause poor patient outcomes.

Today, there are many Cheneau-type braces. Informed consumers should understand that Cheneau bracing is both an art as well as a science. Brace design and fit matter significantly and there can be substantial differences among Cheneau-style braces. Spinal balance, alignment and cobb angle improvement are important factors when considering expectations for a successful outcome, but without compliance, these positive outcomes are not possible.

My daughter and I have been really happy with the team at Scoliosis Technologies! They take the time to answer all our questions and made the process very easy for us!

We feel blessed that our doctor recommended Scoliosis Technologies! My son's first brace was made by another provider and he could hardly tolerate wearing it. The brace Scoliosis Technologies made he wears 19 hours a day with no problem!
