- 13-year-old female
- Initial Cobb angles 31º/34º
- Risser 3
Here’s another California girl who experienced progression in a SpineCor brace. In fact, while wearing the SpineCor her in-brace x-ray showed absolutely no correction/change in scoliosis. TW was already a Risser 3 when she and her mom decided she should make the switch to a Chêneau-Gensingen brace. Contrastingly, she experienced an excellent in-brace correction in the Chêneau-Gensingen brace! After recognizing the value of the S3DC program, mom and daughter returned to Boston a few months later so TW could participate in our Schroth Best Practice® program.
Today, this patient’s skeletal maturity is estimated as Risser 4 and her out-of-brace Cobb angles now measure 22º and 23º – a 9º and 11º scoliosis reduction!
