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!’.  

What Scoliosis 3DC Patients Are Saying

Best Experience I’ve Had

“Working with Dr. Marc was probably one of the best experiences I’ve had with a doctor. I love going there, and doing Schroth improved my scoliosis from 25 degrees in August 2011, to 17 degrees in November the same year. Who can argue with that?” Read More

Just Like Family!

“Yes, it’s a hard thing to go through, but they made it easy and enjoyable. We loved Dr. Marc’s sense of humor and the whole staff made us feel comfortable and just like family!” Read More
