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.
