We provide concrete scoliosis treatment results for our patients. By re-examining range of motion, re-assessing lung function, taking updated posture pictures, and by using X-rays of the specific area of the scoliosis, I hold myself accountable to my patients. Scoliosis treatment results are based on all these things, along with concrete evidence of improved quality of life (reduced or eliminated pain).
Before and After
A typical result will yield 25-35% reduction in Cobb angle. Some patients will do better, some less well. A further program of intensive treatment (3 months later) will further improve the Cobb angles in many cases. The patient is expected to maintain home treatment until completion of growth, typically around age 17. Ongoing care is case specific and will be discussed at the completion of each intensive program of care.
