The scoliosis success stories presented in this Schroth method results section below demonstrates the hard work of a sample of Scoliosis 3DC® patients. Notably, most of the xrays featured (taken at independent facilities) are from patients previously treated for scoliosis at prestigious children’s hospitals and medical institutions from all over the US, as well as Canada and Europe.
We include cases of patients who either participated in our Schroth therapy, wore a Gensingen scoliosis brace, or both. Each result is accompanied by a ‘backstory’ for insights into treatment history. For patients wearing a brace, xrays are 24 hours out of brace to ensure accuracy. A scoliosis xray taken just out-of-brace or immediately after scoliosis exercise will NOT reflect a true picture of the spine.
Results presented are of varying curve patterns and curve apex locations. Since right thoracic curves are the most common, those are a majority of the results shown. However, we’ve included thoracolumbar scoliosis curves, double major curves and lumbar scoliosis curves as well. Not every patient achieves scoliosis correction. Results depend on patient-specific factors. The results shown are not meant to guide your specific expectations. Each case is unique.
At Scoliosis 3DC®, we treat patients with all types of scoliosis, including idiopathic, congenital, and neuromuscular. Results shown are primarily of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, the most common type. Children and adolescents have the best opportunity for measurable Cobb angle improvement. Adult spines are typically less flexible, so curve reduction is unlikely. With that said, we do show a case of scoliosis reduction in an adult.
Thank you to the patients who have permitted us to share their images and stories in an effort to help others. Their results defy claims that exercises for scoliosis are of no use. We’ve chosen to post cases with explicit permission with x-rays worthy of publishing.
