Juvenile Idiopathic Scoliosis, NYRC bracing

This is a 9 year old who came to our office for the first time with a 50 degree curve. We spoke about options which included bracing and surgery. We spoke about the fact that since she was so young we would recommend a MAGEC insertion. After considering the options, Janelle and her family decided on bracing and Schroth PT. She was extremely compliant with bracing and wore the brace about 22 hours a day.

She came back 6 months after starting the brace and her curve decreased to 17 degrees. Her curve remains in this region at her follow up visits. She still has growth remaining so we will have to keep an eye on her as she grows.
