End-of-growth and skeletal maturity results
The aim of this study was to evaluate the radiographic outcomes obtained in a sample of patients treated with a chiroprac- tic scoliosis-specific exercise program for patients with adolescent idiopathic scolio- sis. Patients were treated and subsequently followed through skeletal maturity, and their results were reported in accordance with the SOSORT Consensus Guidelines.
While wearing a specialized long-lever orthosis system, patients saw their Cobb angles and thoracic rotation decrease.
