Alvin R Loosli, MD is the official Sponsor and Medical Director of the More Corsets - Less Opioids Project. After completing his Family Practice Residency, he worked in Contra Costa County Medical Center in Surgery & Orthopedic Clinic for 12 years before becoming a full time Sports Medicine Physician in 1986. In his over 40 years of medical practice he used a lumbar corset with stays in over 5000 patients with lumbar spine injuries. No patient ever became addicted to his brace! Patients became more active, not weaker.
He continues to find the Lumbar Corset to be the most reliable & fastest acting pain reliever for most serious low back injuries. Narcotic prescriptions are not needed in his practice.
Conflict of interest disclaimer:
Dr Loosli and the Jean Loosli Family Trust are the sole funding sources of the More Corsets - Less Opioids project.
The Lumbar Sacral corset from Bird & Cronin is chosen for its ease of use, low cost, effectiveness and durability. No corporate money is involved with this project.
