Since introducing the Cheneau-Gensingen brace in North America, it’s been our privilege to have played a role in helping adolescents with scoliosis halt progression and/or reverse curvature to some extent. We are primarily a patient-centered practice. However, we are also committed to expanding the network of professionals seeking knowledge of Cheneau and Schroth method protocols. Asymmetric 3D bracing… Read More

Recently, one of our star patients and her family revisited us from Ontario, Canada. This time it was the youngest sister who required scoliosis bracing. Since 2014, when her oldest daughter was diagnosed very suddenly, the girls’ mom had been vigilant about watching her second daughter’s spine for signs of scoliosis.  For the youngest daughter in this… Read More

Research on bracing has demonstrated the importance of addressing the sagittal plane of scoliosis during bracing (1). Flattening of the physiologic curves of the sagittal plane is thought to be an early indicator of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (3,4). Dr. Hans-Rudolf Weiss, the developer of the Cheneau-style Gensingen brace by Dr. Weiss (GBW) incorporates this principle in scoliosis brace design….

Thoracolumbar scoliosis is a curvature of the spine at the junction of the mid back (lower thoracic) and low back (upper lumbar). Thoracolumbar scoliosis can be caused by a variety of reasons but as with all types of scoliosis it is usually idiopathic, about 80 – 90% of the time. According to one recent study… Read More

Let’s face it, few scoliosis patients willingly choose fusion surgery. However, it’s often the only option presented when Cobb angles are 45º or 50º, or greater. Here’s the story of one girl’s quest for a scoliosis brace to avoid surgery.

A new retrospective study from France offers encouraging news for adults with scoliosis. This important article highlights a conservative treatment option that is rarely considered/used in the US – adult scoliosis bracing. The study tested the effectiveness of underarm bracing for adults in slowing curve progression non-surgically. Underarm bracing is an outdated term used to differentiate TLSO… Read More
