• 12-year-old female
  • Initial Cobb angles 25º/12º
  • Risser 1

This patient came from Washington state to be fit in a Gensingen Brace. It was decided to use a Gensingen Nighttime brace and closely monitor her progress. Nighttime bracing is not as aggressive as full-time spinal bracing and is limited to adolescents who meet certain criteria. The Gensingen Nighttime brace differs from other nighttime braces in that it addresses the spine in all three planes (not just one plane) and offers an exaggerated spinal shift. Unlike other nighttime braces, the Gensingen Nighttime brace can also be worn in an upright position, not just when lying down.

This patient wore her Gensingen nighttime brace for almost two years and integrated Schroth Best Practice® concepts during the day. She reduced her thoracic angle to 12º and her lumbar angle to 4º – now considered a very, very mild scoliosis. This girl stopped wearing her brace when she reached spinal maturity at fourteen years old.
