In-brace x-rays taken at the time of the brace fitting revealed that the deformity could be completely reduced (Figure 3). The patient continued to wear the brace with good self-reported compliance from the parents.
Unfortunately, the daily exercises were performed on a more haphazard basis. ScoliBrace treatment was continued for approximately 24 months.
Several modifications were made to the brace along the way to accommodate the patient’s growth.
By the end of the bracing period, the patient’s scoliosis had been reduced from 40° down to 14° out of the brace (Figure 4).
At this point in time the patient is still under care, however, the recommendation is for the patient to wear a more flexible style brace to maintain the correction achieved with the ScoliBrace, and also to further reduce the left postural shift
