What is scoliosis?

Scoliosis – a three-dimensional deformation of the spine.

Girls are four times more frequently affected by this than boys. By means of so-called clinical examinations and a radiograph it can be determined whether a person has scoliosis and how pronounced it is.

In order to avoid X-rays, measuring devices such as the scoliometer or imaging methods such as the “Formetric” system are utilised. The curvatures can be very slight to severe. They can have the shape of the letter “S” or an elongated “C”.

Whoever starts with treatment in due time can stop the progression of scoliosis or even reduce the curvatures with modern and functional spinal orthoses such as the RSC® Brace. In addition, a symmetric appearance of the body is restored.
