Corset to reduce the chest - when and why apply

The change in the anatomical structure of the upper spine and its frontal area has several varieties. The main of them include:

  1. Funnel deformitywhich is associated with a significant underdevelopment of the cartilaginous ribs. In most cases, this defect is congenital. Outwardly, it manifests itself as a simultaneous deepening in the middle and lower parts of the chest.
  2. Asymmetric deformation - a decrease in the volume of the chest is observed on the right or left side. In this case, decompensation occurs, because of which the second half "moves forward" and slightly rises. Prolonged progressive hyperplasia of cartilage and musculoskeletal tissue leads to the fact that part of the lung atrophies. After which it is removed.
  3. Curvature of the spine, followed by a change in the chest - occurs due to trauma or in the form of a complication of ankylosing spondylitis, tuberculosis of the musculoskeletal skeleton. This pathology is characterized by rapid progression of the disease, which entails an anatomical displacement of the heart axis and atrophy of the lung tissue.
  4. Keel strain - it develops against the background of such a disease as rickets. The main manifestation of pathology is the presence of a protruding sharp edge at the base of the sternum, which looks like a keel of a high-speed vessel.

Chest reduction methods

There are several ways to correct an existing defect:

  1. Surgical - these include surgery, in which the affected part is removed or replaced with implants. It is used if the patient cannot breathe normally, engage in habitual activities and lead a full-fledged lifestyle.
  2. Operational modeling. Innovative impact techniques that include the use of:
    • “Penza technology” - installation of silicone implants and artificial fixation on an external corset,
    • the introduction of metal threads under the skin to straighten the walls of the sternum,
    • special corset
  3. Drug.
  4. Therapeutic and adaptive - gymnastics, stretching the spine, the use of anatomical accessories for sleep and rest.

What is dangerous reduction of the chest?

The main problems that may arise in the presence of such a defect are as follows:

  1. Changes in the circulatory system within the affected area,
  2. Displacement of the axis of the heart, the appearance of chronic diseases - arrhythmia, tachycardia, stenosis, cardiomyopathy,
  3. Decreased lung volume, poor ventilation, poor nutrition of the alveoli,
  4. Atrophy of tissues and cells
  5. Termination of the work of some organs and systems.

Diseases of the musculoskeletal system always entail complications that extend not only to a comfortable everyday life, but also to the general well-being of a person. Headaches, shortness of breath, heart palpitations are often caused by scoliosis, lordosis, kyphosis or other complex pathologies.

Therefore, for the most effective treatment, it is first necessary to eliminate the main defect. And after that - to deal with the correction of other violations.

Scope of application

Keel-like rib cage is the most pathable corset correction. It arises from the unreasonably intensive growth of the cartilaginous part of the ribs.

Because of this, the rib cage bulges and becomes like the keel of a boat.

Unfortunately, with age, this feature of the structure does not pass, but only increases.

It is very important to start the correction in time, because without paying attention to this pathology in a few years, not only the aggravated aesthetic defect can be seen, but also a malfunction of the heart.

At the present stage of development of medicine, experts are of the opinion that the keeled defect can be corrected without surgical intervention.

An orthosis (orthopedic corset) can sometimes be as good as an operation, especially if it is intended for a child.

Children's corsets provide assistance at times faster. This is due to the anatomical and physiological characteristics of the structure of the child's body: it very quickly adapts to changes from the outside.

Orthoses are mounted on the patient's body so that the incorrectly located ribs and their cartilaginous parts tend to return to the physiological position.

However, this method has a disadvantage. You can not wear a brace for a long time, especially when it comes to children, since the corset is quite bulky and heavy.

There is another type of corset to reduce the chest. It was developed by the Haje scientist and suggests a gradual correction by slow compression of the sterno-costal complex.

Squeezing is performed in the anteroposterior direction, and the rate of reduction of the size of the orthosis is controlled by the attending physician. The average duration of treatment is up to two years.

Bandage after surgery

In pharmacies and departments of medical equipment chest bandages are sold for use after surgery. Their functions include:

  • safe fixation of the chest,
  • reduction of pain, especially during respiratory movements,
  • the acceleration of the recovery of the skin and the formation of scar tissue,
  • reducing the load on the spine and muscular corset,
  • accurate fixation of internal organs,
  • prophylaxis of hernial protrusions.

During the rehabilitation period after some diseases, the wearing of a chest band is strongly recommended. The list is quite wide:

  • heart bypass or other surgery on the heart muscle,
  • rib injuries (bruises, fractures),
  • muscle pain
  • muscle inflammation (myositis),
  • intercostal muscle neuralgia
  • the likelihood of a hernia in the postoperative period,
  • liposuction and other interventions
  • cesarean delivery

Corset manufacturers warn that you need to buy products for yourself, since the product has different styles and sizes.

In addition, the bandage for men is similar to a wide belt of elastic fabric with a velcro at the end, while the women's belt has special cuts on the chest.

Women's bandages are divided into 4 types:

  1. for fixation after a fracture and other injuries of the ribs - post-traumatic fixation,
  2. thorax (thorax from Latin - chest): necessary to limit chest breathing (going to abdominal type),
  3. female two-pane with a minimum degree of fixation and compression, suitable for the treatment of neuralgia,
  4. bandage after surgery on the heart muscle - better than others prevents seam divergence.

Why it happens

But nevertheless, more often than not, a bulging cell in a child is diagnosed not because of the structural features of the body, but because of pathological processes. The main reason is a violation of the formation of bone and cartilage tissue, which may occur due to genetic abnormalities or other factors - living in adverse conditions, the harmful effects on the fetus of chemicals, taking medications, although in most cases it was proved that this pathology is transmitted by inheritance.

With a protruding bone on the chest, the pathology can be corrected if correct and timely treatment is used. If we are talking about an operation, then it is recommended to do it only when the bones of the skeleton are fully formed, and this happens no earlier than by the age of 20. However, with the rapid progression of surgical treatment may be carried out earlier.

In some cases, a bulging cell in adolescents is diagnosed with other diseases. It can be:

  1. Incomplete development of the subclavian artery.
  2. Testicular hypoplasia.
  3. Leukemia.
  4. Paralysis of the facial nerve.
  5. Paralysis of the optic nerve.

This condition is called Poland syndrome, but it is very rare. In addition, there is a pronounced cosmetic defect, and in the absence of treatment there is a compression of the lungs and the heart.

Another syndrome that is associated with a bulging chest is called Wife's disease. Pathology can be detected in early childhood, and it also refers to the potentially lethal. Both of these pathologies are associated with chromosomal abnormalities.

How to wear and wear a bandage

How many hours to wear the product, determines the attending physician. However, the most common way is to wear a sock from morning to evening, with a break for sleeping.

Wearing a bandage is only necessary when lying down to distribute the pressure in the chest and abdominal cavities evenly, without harming any organ.

In addition to the chest, the corset tightens the organs and vessels that are in it. It is the heart and lungs. But we should not forget that large vessels are also involved: the aorta and other vascular trunks coming out of the heart.

If the orthosis is not only the chest, but also goes down a little to the abdominal cavity, then it pulls down the stomach and presses on the liver.

Prolonged wear of the orthosis can cause health problems:

  • Increased risk of blood clots
  • Displacement of internal organs and the violation of their functions,
  • Frequent colds. This is due to a decrease in the respiratory surface of the alveoli in the lower part of the lungs, which leads to the accumulation of mucus there. The latter is an excellent substrate for the growth of pathological flora and leads to bronchitis and other diseases,
  • Anemia, impaired cardiac activity,
  • The appearance of bleeding on the internal organs due to squeezing,
  • People with a predisposition to VSD (vegetative-vascular dystonia) with regular and inconsistent with the doctor wearing a corset may have fainting and discomfort.

Before you think about the possibility of wearing such a product, you need to familiarize yourself with the contraindications:

  • pregnancy,
  • purulent-inflammatory lesion of the skin,
  • hernia of the anterior abdominal wall.

Clinical picture

The bulging bone on the chest in the first stages does not give any symptoms. Gradually, they begin to grow. So, for example, protrusion appears along with retraction of 4 - 8 edges, which further leads to the development of a wedge. All this leads to disruption of the heart, lungs and spine.

Today, in medicine, there are three types of bone displacement when making this diagnosis.

  1. Manubricostal type - bulge in the upper chest.
  2. Costal type - deformity in the area of ​​the cartilage of the ribs.
  3. Korpokostalny type - pathology of the lower half of the sternum.

It is possible to determine this or that type already at the first examination by a doctor, but to clarify the diagnosis, an x-ray diagnosis is required. In addition to radiography, methods such as CT or MRI can be used to make a correct diagnosis, which give a clearer picture of the disease, making it possible to understand how badly the bones and internal organs have suffered. Moreover, it is recommended to do CT and MRI not only of the ribs and chest, but also of the spine, since the disease affects its health. If a heart disease is suspected, an ECG can be prescribed, as well as an ultrasound scan, which allows to clarify whether there is any pressure on this organ from the bone structures.

Convex chest also occurs in women, and it is impossible to cope with the disease with the help of exercises alone. In order to achieve a truly positive result, it is necessary to resort to surgical intervention.

Conservative treatment should be comprehensive and should be carried out at the very beginning of the diagnosis of the disease. It should be therapeutic exercises, massage, taking painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs. All this will help strengthen the muscular framework, improve blood supply in the lungs and heart, and improve metabolic processes.

One of the most effective conservative methods is considered to be a dynamic compression system; however, only the attending physician should decide on its use.

Surgical intervention is applied only with the rapid progression of the disease and only when the pathology interferes with the work of the internal organs and threatens the life of the person. The operation most often is performed according to Ravich, but this does not completely eliminate the defect, but the cosmetic effect of the operation is good.

The second operation is carried out according to Abramson, and during it, a corset is made of metal plates joined together around the chest, which help restrain the development of the pathological process.

Let's sum up

Orthopedic corsets are a very useful thing. They can correct the deformation of the chest, reduce visible defects and support the muscles after surgery. Suitable at any age, and in children have the most rapid effect.

But you should not mindlessly buy an orthosis or a bandage: a healthy person in some cases can hurt.

If you suspect one of the above indications to purchase, contact a specialist. Only he, assessing your condition, will give recommendations that will be timely and useful.

if every day wear a corset, the ribs will be already? Of course yes! And the brain from this will be more. So, the author, go ahead. You just need it!

yes they will! But there will be a shift of internal organs and health problems will not turn

1, argue, please, I do not see anything ridiculous and stupid in my desire to be more beautiful :) but maybe you will open my eyes to the truth :)

What does the waist have to do with ribs? Is the waist under the ribs?
Me, too, sometimes especially "smart" people ask if I should remove a pair of ribs?
And the waist becomes already from holokhopa

As a master in corsets, I can confidently say that the ribs will become narrower. And the waist too will become already. For organs it is tolerable, because Utyazhki 5-7 cm is enough (then of course it will be necessary to purchase a corset in size less).
A couple of years ago, I had a waist of 65 cm for a month wearing a corset with a waist of 58, had decreased to 59 cm. A girl friend wore a corset, her ribs had become Already after 2 weeks.
I do not agitate to wear corsets, think what you want, but I wear it with pleasure!

Masha Odessa, of course, the waist is under the ribs, but if the ribs are wide apart, the waist cannot possibly be narrow. After all, leather is not plasticine :)

Anya, thank you, did you wear a corset every day? now continue to wear?

sorry, inattentively read, does your girlfriend continue to wear a corset?

The author, I also wore. Now I do not wear, because there is no place to wear, but you want to be at home in comfort, there is no special sense to drag in too (the figure suits you). And when the waist decreased, then yes, she wore almost every day. But he was beautiful, velvet. Sin was not to wear :)
A friend also wears, for aesthetic reasons, she likes it so much, but I already sewed a second smaller one to her, and the first one took it down.

yes they will! But there will be a shift of internal organs and health problems will not turn

With a corset, only oxygen will be blocked, and you will fall into a swoon like girls in ancient times of crenalines) In short, your idea is nonsense, your ribs will not be removed anywhere, only you will torment yourself.
And at the expense of removing the edges - also nothing good. I heard that the waist in clothes of course looks super - narrow. But in the nude, such a figure does not look very natural, because in front it is like a deflection to the spine, such a noticeable “dent” is obtained. In short, it is clear that something is wrong with the body.

12 and 13, they used to tighten by 20-30 cm, and you can only tighten by 5-7, and there will already be a visible result, in a corset under the chest you can breathe without any problems at all (in high weight, because the chest is compressed). No organs from modern corsets are not suffering!

and if the corset is removed after a long sock, then the ribs will be wide or slightly reduced?

The author, of course, the ribs will narrow. Because after birth, they diverge by 2-3 cm. So there is a way back. Just be very careful about all this. I read that by wearing corsets, the beauties of the ribs were all in the cracks. Buy a corset in the form of a very wide belt, and gently pull in a little. Toko a corset needs to be bought from experts, but not in the market.

Anya, can you give details about your corsets, do you sew to order?

such a corset every day?

anechka, a est 'korset na bedra, chtob bedra uzhe stali (ja ser'ezno)

Anya, and there is a corset on the hips, so that the hips have become (I'm serious)

please tell me where did you buy a corset, I can’t find anywhere

girls tell me a corset for a beaver. I am very eager to reduce bdra ((for six months I was "blown away".
Anya, you are a master of corsets. How can I contact you? Please email me.
[email protected]

But how many hours a day do you need to wear a corset to narrow the ribs? I also want to narrow the edges by 5-6 centimeters.

Kst, I also have a waist of 65, I want 59-60.

How much waist do you have and how much do you want?

oh cool
instead of a corset, I wear a slinging bandage which is worn on my legs against varicose veins.
Here now I sit in it, utyanulsya somewhere up to 60, damn, aunt, really, I have a feeling that I faint in * bus. (
Is that normal? get used to? or bandage, so it was not so tight.

you have a beautiful corset.

like not yet crashed. But the condition has deteriorated markedly. No, you need to be tied up, I feel something in the back.
Well, the usual, slimming, antivaricose, for the legs.
Listen, and you sew to order? if so, how much will it cost?

Gosha! What is the difference between apparel corse and apparel?

Ryoura do not take away! Is it not clear? In vain trying!

realistic, and other doubters - the lower moving ribs remarkably for a while are pulled down by a good corset. however, in order for this effect to be long, you must wear a corset at least 12 hours a day for several years.

It seems to me that you can wear a corset 1-2 times a week, if you don’t drag out too much (just 5 centimeters), I wouldn’t have become more often, even for men.

In general, if anyone needs it, write on la_fee. SABACA will help you as I can.

The main thing is not to eat in it. Otherwise you will bend with the stomach.

The corset is worn so that FAT can be seen nebylo! My sister wears a corset and ate less from it!)

I also want to buy a corset for myself in order to reduce obdhavat lower ribs. Fat is not much - a waist of 60 cm, and the lower ribs 75cm - spoil everything, what to do? Because of the ribs and the waist is not visible - the surgeon wants it like an hourglass, and the edges of the structure are closer to the male one - the rib cage is square. I want to make a smoother transition from hip to waist. And there is a corset - they donated it, but it doesn’t draw anything down, so the decorative one is probably tightened to the maximum - for some reason, the wide one even hangs. Need advice, where you can buy exactly slimming corset, which works exactly on the ribs, or do you need to sew to order? In order to choose the right corset and not damage your health, you probably need to order it from special orthopedists? Are there such doctors who can help correct this problem without surgery?

Mixed unloading-corrective, fixation-relieving, corrective-fixation simultaneously perform several functions.

Corset orthopedic T-1586 Trives

An important criterion is the price. As a rule, such products are not cheap, but they serve for several years with proper care. The cost depends on the number of stiffeners, the material of the product, the manufacturer's company.

The first thing to consider when choosing such a product is that there are elastic bandages, orthopedic corsets and anti-radiculitis belts. They are often confused, but these are completely different things. An example of an elastic bandage is prenatal or postpartum, which women often use to provide additional support for the abdomen and lower back. An example of a protivoradikulitnogo belt can be a heating product for the lumbar of wool.

Model Description: On a dense back along the vertebra there are 2 simulated stiffeners. Elastic fasteners fix the corset as much as possible without squeezing the ribs and internal organs. 2 additional stiffening ribs fix the lumbosacral region. Renkliruyuschaya system consists of 2 inextensible straps and covers for the axillary region.

Contraindications for wearing them are:

Perhaps these are the main points that you need to pay attention to when choosing a corset. But in each case there may be individual nuances that need to be clarified with the doctor. There is also the possibility of making orthopedic corsets to order, which is especially important for children.

Orthopedic corsets, as a rule, in addition to the elastic component, have supporting and correcting ones, which are represented by metal stiffening ribs and various plastic elements, as well as additional fasteners (buckles and straps). Thanks to this type of construction, it is possible to bring the shape of the product for the spine as close as possible to the anatomical shapes of the human spine, which provides maximum protection and support.

Radiculopathy, intercostal neuralgia,

Preliminary use of warming creams and ointments.

Prevention of injuries and overstrain of the spinal muscles during heavy physical exertion and weight lifting,

  2. To wear an orthopedic corset are diseases such as spondylosis, scoliosis, osteochondrosis, osteoporosis
  3. Reduce the rehabilitation period.

During sleep, such structures are necessarily removed.

Fixing - limit movement in the spine, which is necessary for successful rehabilitation after operations, injuries, with an exacerbation of the disease of the back with severe pain, for the correction of various kinds of deformities.

  • Compression fractures of the vertebral bodies,
  • Type: mixed corrective-fixation.
  • Post-traumatic and postoperative rehabilitation.

As materials for the manufacture of orthopedic corsets used dense breathable and elastic fabrics, plastic, rubber, leather, metal. The armored corsets are made from high-temperature and low-temperature thermoplastics.

Contraindications to wear

3 With periodic violations of muscle tone in the spine.

  • For the treatment of the spine is not always enough exercise and medicine. Modern devices can not only facilitate treatment, but also prevent disease. One of these tools is a corset for the spine.
  • . Also, corsets are used for hernia, fractures, during the rehabilitation period after operations and injuries, with pinching of nerves.
  • Their experts are advised to wear in those cases when heavy physical loads are foreseen.
  • Wear a corset strictly according to indications, for example, during physical exertion.
  • Depending on the degree of rigidity, they are divided into:

Intervertebral hernia,

Tips for choosing

Look: a corset for the correction of disorders of the cervical spine. Soft elastic fixation.

Cover the entire chest and lower back. They make it possible to optimize vertical loads on the spinal column, normalize muscle tone, help restore lordosis and kyphosis - physiological curvatures of the spine.Soft (elastic) models are recommended for wearing for neurological disorders, hernias, and radiculitis. They are appointed by orthopedists for the expansion of spasm blood vessels, improvement of blood circulation in the affected area. Not designed to maintain the spine in the desired position and relieve the load from damaged discs.

  1. The lumbosacral corset of the Boston type is made to the level of the chest. The corset has a rear connector and a fastener; the front has double-sided cuts to the level of the iliac bones, which are closed from the outside with elastic rods for a snug fit of the corset. It is used for scoliosis of 3 degrees of the lumbar spine.
  2. A corset with hernia is used to support the spine in its natural position, as well as to relieve tension from it and fix the damaged vertebrae. These corsets are of varying degrees of rigidity.
  3. The function of the orthopedic corset for the spine is to unload the problem areas of the back due to the support created by the rigid ribs. Squeezing properties provide increased pressure of the thoracic region of the back. Thus, pressure on the interdisk space of the spine is reduced, which allows reducing further disc displacement and deformation of the vertebrae. So, high-quality corset for the spine will provide you with:
  4. It must be remembered that only the use of an orthopedic corset itself is only an addition to the treatment that helps the body cope with pathological changes, but does not eliminate their cause.
  5. Also, corsets can be used for long-term driving or during sports exercises.
