“Here’s proof why managing a scoliosis curve during a child’s growth spurt is so important”
It’s overdue to share with you a scoliosis success story that I would love to take all of the credit for, but this one really goes to my patient and her family.
This sweet 12year old girl came to the Joy of Therapy in April 2019 with some back pain, an ever increasing scoliosis curve, and discomfort wearing a back brace. Plus, little did we both know, but she was about to hit a growth spurt over the summer.
Fast forward 5 months, and nearly 20 treatments later, she has decreased her scoliotic curve by 50%!
She went from wearing a rigid brace and no therapy with a 48 degree curve in the thoracic spine and 43 degree curve in the lumbar spine, to a 22 degree curve in the thoracic spine and 20 degree curve in the lumbar spine while wearing a dynamic brace and therapy.
Plus she grew 2 inches during that same time!
How did she do it?
Through the combined effort of:
- Specific Scoliosis Exercises custom designed for her curve type by Joy Smith,PT
- An amazing dynamic WCR brace from the Align Clinic which she wears consistently 20+ hours a day designed by Walter Ramos,L/O,CPO Align clinic
- Supportive and loving family
- Great medical care by Dr. Ryan Price at Tallahassee Orthopedic Clinic TOC
The key to all of this success hinges on the fact that she wanted to make this change and stuck with the program.
She attends therapy regularly, wears her brace as prescribed and her dad has even made the Schroth bars for her to use at home.
So what does this mean for you if you have scoliosis? No matter how big or small your curve is, if you are a child, teenager or adult or whether or not you have a brace or don’t want to wear a brace- a comprehensive program that addresses ALL of your needs is here for you.
