After this patient’s mom noticed her son’s uneven shoulders, she and her husband consulted with a pediatric orthopedist who suggested they watch, wait and follow up again in four months. The doctor also mentioned that bracing may be indicated at some point in the future.
Preferring to take a more proactive approach to their son’s scoliosis, his parents consulted with us to learn more about conservative scoliosis care. After evaluating this boy, Dr. Marc recommended a limited Schroth program. He came for a few sessions and is obviously applying what he learned because within six months his scoliosis has reduced to 11º.
