A Schroth Best Practice® colleague in Toronto, Canada referred this patient with juvenile scoliosis for a Chêneau-Gensingen® brace. After her second brace fitting, an in-brace x-ray demonstrated a 7º overcorrection – meaning the patient’s spine went 7° in the opposite direction!

When a patient is young with a flexible spine and able to overcorrect in-brace, this is a positive sign that some degree of curve improvement may be possible. Less than a year later, follow-up Cobb angles measured just 10º and 6º (when out of brace for 24+ hours). We are so excited that her curves reduced by 14° in thoracic spine and 6° in the lumbar spine! Cases like hers are why our tag line is “Don’t wait and see.”

The orthopedist told us that if he… Read More
