Re: Torso Rotation (before and after x-rays)
I know of one other scoliosis patient who tried this, a girl in her teens with a much larger curve. Despite being very diligent about doing the exercises, her curve progressed and she ended up having surgery. However, Dingo feels that the fact that she was using a torso rotation machine that couldn't lock her pelvis in position may have had some bearing on this. She was also wearing the Spinecor brace at the same time, and there's no way to know if this made any difference to the outcome of the exercises, whether the Spinecor negatively affected the outcome of the Torso Rotations or vice-versa.
[SIZE="1"]37 years old, diagnosed with infantile idiopathic scoliosis at 6 months old with curves of 62(T) and 40(L) degrees. Casting and Milwaukee braces until surgery at 10 - ant release/pos fusion T1-T12, halo traction. Post op cast and then TLSO. Further surgery at 18 (ant release/pos fusion extended to L3 to include lumbar curve, costoplasty) and 25 (another costoplasty). Fusion extended to L4 at 33 (XLIF with 4 pedicle screws and two short rods). Pre-op curves: 76(T) and 70(L). Post-op curves: 45(T) and 35(L). Diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome aged 34; scoliosis almost certainly due to this rather than being idiopathic.[/SIZE]
