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 the concerns about scoliosis and x-rays 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… 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 that measures trunk asymmetry in scoliosis, or angle of trunk rotation (ATR). It is a small, non-invasive device (essentially a mini-level) that is placed over the spine while a person is in a forward bending position. The scoliometer reading indicates degree of trunk asymmetry (rotation). Research shows that most people… Read More

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

What Scoliosis 3DC Patients Are Saying

Yay! :)

“Hey Dr. Marc, Me and my mom just went to the hospital and got my out of brace x-ray. My curve went from 38 to 22 degrees and my rotation was like 20 to 9 -YAY! :)” Read More

16 Degree Scoliosis Reduction

Hey Dr. Marc, Me and my mom just went to the hospital and got my out of brace x-ray. My curve went from 38 to 22 degrees and my rotation was like 20 to 9 -YAY! 🙂 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
