Scoliosis and x-rays go hand and hand but parents, and even some kids, have concerns about x-ray frequency to monitor spinal changes during growth. We understand these concerns and figured it is about time to address them. X-ray evaluation is a necessary part of monitoring scoliosis. X-rays allow physicians to measure Cobb angles, identify spinal and… Read More

At Scoliosis 3DC when evaluating scoliosis, chest expansion is one measure we use to create a baseline in order to track and monitor progress. This is because respiratory deficits associated with thoracic scoliosis can occur as a secondary response to decreased rib mobility. A maligned thorax in three planes  -sagittal, frontal (coronal) and transverse (rotational)… Read More

A scoliometer is an instrument which measures trunk asymmetry in scoliosis. It is a small, non-invasive device that is placed over the spine while the person being measured is in a forward bending position. The reading indicates trunk asymmetry in degrees. Depending upon the measurement, it is a possible indicator that scoliosis may be present…. Read More

Cobb angle is the “universal standard” of measurement used to quantify a scoliosis for the purpose of measuring curve progression over time. Identifying Cobb angle is important since it is often the first objective indicator of a scoliosis. A curve is considered to be scoliosis at a Cobb angle of 10º or more. Any increase… Read More

What Scoliosis 3DC Patients Are Saying

Impressed by the Improvement

“I think for me reducing the “look” of the rib hump and less back fatigue have been really incredible. It takes discipline of course and people have to realize that its an investment in their well being and they have to do it daily.” Read More

10 stars!

I would give Dr. Moramarco and Kim and Amy a 10 star review…With a few precise movements learned from the team at Scoliosis 3DC, I was pain free and felt strong enough to tackle a busy day. Amazing! Never, have I ever felt so COMPLETELY cared for by medical professionals. Read More
