• 14-year-old male
  • Initial Cobb angles 32°/19º
  • Risser 4

After their son’s scoliosis diagnosis, Z’s parents conferred with Dr. Marc by phone. They traveled from Virginia to Boston for a Schroth program and Cheneau-Gensingen brace less than a month later. It’s fair to say that many other practitioners probably would not have braced Z due to his advanced Risser stage. However at Risser 4, there is the potential for residual growth and often, males mature later than females. Two years later, a follow-up x-ray showed Cobb angles of 25º and 14º. Due to his good result, Z’s parents knew just what to do when his sister EK1 was later diagnosed with scoliosis.
