- 12-year-old female
- Initial Cobb angles 26º/34º
- Risser 2-3
This patient was initially diagnosed with scoliosis at 8 years old (juvenile scoliosis). At that time her Cobb angles measured 10º and 17º and her parents were advised to ‘watch and wait.’
Within three years, her Cobb angles had progressed to 26º and 26º – a double major curve. She was then finally fit with a Boston Brace (not our patient at the time). Unfortunately she had trouble tolerating the Boston brace and continued progressing. Her spine eventually measured 26º/34º, at which point her mother sought out our services.
Within two months of participation in our Schroth program, BE experienced some curve improvement. Within one year, her Cobb angles decreased to 15º and 14º – an 11º thoracic and 20º lumbar curve reduction in only one year!
