Case 82: Female, 10 years old

Xrays before and after 82Today’s case is from a 10-year-old girl who had a severe scoliosis of 60 degrees even on the first x-ray exam. The specialist at the hospital recommended surgery but the mother wanted a second opinion rather than heading straight into spinal surgery.

We designed a ScolioAlign Brace for her which is the only brace suitable for curves over 50 degrees. And she started therapy to stabilise and strengthen her spine at our clinic 2 times a week.

The x-ray after was taken at her review with the hospital and happy to report her scoliosis has reduced from 60 degrees to 53! While her scoliosis was high when she started she started therapy at a young age when her spine is still flexible.
