- 13-year-old female
- Initial Cobb angles 31º/34º
- Risser 3
Here’s another California girl who experienced scoliosis progression in a SpineCor brace. Before coming to Scoliosis 3DC for treatment she wore the SpineCor brace. Unfortunately, her in-brace x-ray in the SpineCor showed absolutely no correction or spinal improvement of scoliosis.
After being recommended to Scoliosis 3DC by another patient’s mom, T was already a Risser 3 when she and her mom decided it was time to make the switch to a Chêneau-Gensingen TLSO. Her scoliosis bracing experience at Scoliosis 3DC was much different than with the SpineCor. With the Gensingen brace, she experienced excellent in-brace corrections! After recognizing the value of the scoliosis options we offer here at Scoliosis 3DC, mom and daughter decided they should return to Boston for scoliosis treatment a few months later so T. could participate in our Schroth Best Practice® program.
Today, T’s skeletal maturity is estimated to be a Risser 4. According to her most recent scoliosis x-ray, her out-of-brace Cobb angles now measure 22º and 23º – a 9º and 11º scoliosis correction!
