Re-examination of the patient is one of the most important moments in Scoliosis or Kyphosis treatment. Just the application of a brace or the application of a program alone is not enough. Similarly, an ordinary re-examination appointment with the doctor is in itself not enough.


technicIn adolescence conditions such as Scoliosis and Kyphosis, the physical growth of the adolescent is crucial to the results of a brace treatment. The increase in height, or the increase in the pelvis for girls, are monitored by the parents and if an increase in height or a problem with the convergence of the brace are noted, then the adolescent must be re-examined immediately, regardless of whether the time of the appointment has arrived.




In the re-examination, the first thing examined is the height, which was recorded in the previous visit.


If the increase is in reality greater than 3 centimeters, the following actions are taken:


  1. The application of the brace is checked, but also the way it is applied by the adolescent or the parents.
  2. The tension and the sufficiency of the straps are checked as well as the pressure exerted by the brace to the body of the patient.
  3. The adolescent is examined with Formetric 4D surface topography, with scoliometer and with spine scan
  4. The pads are adjusted into a new position so that the pressures of the brace, on the adolescent's body, are the same as the initial ones.
