Reducing scoliosis without surgery is impossible, right? Not for AK, who had just turned 12 when a 49º scoliosis was detected from an x-ray for pneumonia. One month later, her family came to Scoliosis 3DC℠ from Ontario, Canada for a Cheneau-Gensingen brace and for one-on-one Schroth instruction. An updated x-ray taken just before her arrival showed a 13º progression in just 26 days showing curves measuring 62º and 30º.

Fortunately, AK attained a 58% in-brace correction after being fit with her Gensingen Brace. Over the course of treatment, she reduced the Cobb angle of her primary scoliosis curve to 33º.  She also achieved significant spinal derotation (as measured by Scoliometer™) from 18° to 8° and an impressive improvement in postural appearance (see image). She has been stable for more than three years and at sixteen years old is fully grown and nearly weaned from her brace.
