This is a case of a 15 year old female patient with a 25 degree left lumbar adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. In this case we chose to not do bracing as the patient had already had her cycle for 2+ years and was also near skeletal maturity, hence progression of her curve was unlikely and a brace was not indicated. This case was treated in office using CBP chiropractic methods consisting of mirror image postural adjustments, mirror image postural exercises, traction on a scoliosis traction orthotic called the Scoliroll and also standing postural traction. We had this patient seeing us 3 times a week for 3 months and at her follow up exam her curve had reduce from 25 degrees down to 7. Thats an 18 degree improvement. Now this patient visits us 1 time per month and she performs her exercises and scoliroll at home and at her last follow up, which was a year past the end of treatment, she was still stable at 7 degrees.
