• 13-year-old female
  • Initial Cobb angles 50º/30º
  • Risser 3

NY Surgeons recommended immediate spinal fusion surgery for this thirteen-year-old CT girl with Cobb angles of 50º and 30º. Instead, her parents brought her to Scoliosis 3DC. Dr. Marc fit her in a Chêneau-Gensingen brace and after her first fitting, an x-ray showed a 60% in-brace correction! Later that summer she learned our Schroth Best Practice® rehabilitation techniques. Within one year her primary curve (50 degree scoliosis in the thoracic spine) had reduced substantially. Since then, her scoliosis has remained stable at 30º and 20º. She is ecstatic to have escaped unnecessary spinal fusion surgery, as are her parents!
