Reducing curves prior to puberty is very important as asymmetrical bone growth is accelerated with growth hormones. This is an example of spinal curve reduction with CLEAR and Scolibrace protocols for 10 months in a 9 year old patient.

12 year old patient entered the office with above surgical threshold 41 degree scoliosis in 2018. For two years she followed CLEAR and Scolibrace protocol. She had a 20 degree Cobb angle reduction in 2020. The next 2 years she slept in an updated Scolibrace due to gaining two inches in height. Her four year post Xray in 2022 shows a 24 degree Cobb angle well below 40 degree surgical threshold.
