A great start to the week by delivering an amazing scoliosis correction to a patient who had been with us for 6 months. This 14-year-old girl already had scoliosis in the surgical range when she came to see us. She had an S-shaped scoliosis which was 44 degrees on the top and 45 degrees on the bottom of the spine. She had tried the standard boston brace given by her hospital but her scoliosis still continued to worsen until the specialist recommended surgery.
We changed her brace to a ScolioAlign™ 3D brace along with giving her an individually tailored scoliosis treatment program. She was committed to the program and while wearing her brace when she was at home. As with all the cases we treat, postural images are used to compare before and after treatment. She is getting good scoliosis correction and visual improvements of her body symmetry. The parents and daughter are happy to know they can avoid the surgery with her spine improving under Dr. Kevin Lau care.
