While severe scoliosis in boys is less common than in girls, KE’s case is an example of progressive scoliosis in a male patient. KE was first diagnosed with scoliosis when he was 11 years old. At the time, the scoliosis was mild and was discovered because of back pain. After a couple years of observation and moderate progression, KE was fit with a nighttime bending brace. Despite nighttime bracing, a new x-ray (taken 1.5 years later) revealed that KE’s scoliosis had progressed significantly and measured 46° in the thoracic spine. At that point, his mother reached out to Scoliosis 3DC seeking information about other treatment options.

KE was fit with a Cheneau-Gensingen brace (for full-time wear) and learned a Schroth Best Practice program for his individual curve pattern. KE’s amazing postural improvement (after a 6-month span) clearly shows that he is a very compliant patient! His follow-up x-ray (30+ hours out of brace, taken at an individual facility) also demonstrated a significant improvement in Cobb angle measurements to 31° thoracic and 16° lumbar (originally 46° thoracic and 23°)! We are optimistic that KE will do well considering the stabilization and improvement of a previously progressive scoliosis.

What Scoliosis 3DC Patients Are Saying

The Results Are There!

“She is no longer a candidate for surgery, which is the happiest news we’ve ever heard! Had we stuck with the traditional methods, I have no doubt that we would be in a very different place right now. You will not find either a man who cares more or that does a better job than Dr. Marc Moramarco.” Read More

Impressed by the Improvement

“I think for me reducing the “look” of the rib hump and less back fatigue have been really incredible. It takes discipline of course and people have to realize that its an investment in their well being and they have to do it daily.” Read More
