When this adolescent Toronto patient was diagnosed with a severe double scoliosis, she was told by her surgeon that she would need scoliosis surgery in 6 months. Not satisfied with that prognosis, she began treating locally with a Schroth method therapist and wore a Cheneau-style brace provided by a local hospital. After the patient had her in-brace x-ray taken, her parents were concerned about the correction effect of her scoliosis brace and began seeking out alternatives.

Their search led them to the Cheneau-Gensingen brace and Scoliosis 3DC! In the past, we’ve had parents ask us whether or not the Gensingen brace is effective in treating both the thoracic and lumbar curves of a double major scoliosis. KR’s case is just one example that it can be VERY beneficial for patients with this curve pattern.

Over a year later, her curves are not only stable but reduced at 36° thoracic and 36° lumbar. No longer on track for surgery, her local doctor told her ‘Keep doing what you’re doing!’.

The orthopedist told us that if he… Read More
