Case 20: Female, 14 years old

Xrays-before-and-after-20-ENThe following results is after 6 months therapy of a 14 year old girl. She was prescribed the 3D Brace and came for therapy with Dr Kevin Lau once a week. The results shown are out of brace with the top curve reducing from 29 to 20 degrees and bottom curve from 25 to 0 degrees! She was diligent with her scoliosis exercises prescribed and wore the over-corrective brace consistently. This highlights the importance of detecting and correcting scoliosis early rather than waiting for it to be severe or worse needing surgery. Unfortunately the common recommendation for mild scoliosis is to “wait and see”, an approach which I definitely don’t agree with. Proactive measures should be recommended at all stages of scoliosis as prevention is easier to do.
