On your first visit to SoCal Scoliosis Care, you will be evaluated. We will go over your medical history, current x-rays, and physical spine alignment. The Cheneau Gensingen brace design and treatment will be discussed. During this appointment, we will perform a 3D scan, clinical photographs, and measurements. We will schedule your brace fitting appointment in two weeks.
Two weeks later, you return to SoCal Scoliosis Care for your brace fitting. We will fit the brace and review the fitting to ensure that the pad placements are pressing in the correct areas. We will ensure that you can lay down, sit, and walk comfortably while wearing your Cheneau Gensingen brace. We'll show you how to put on your brace and go over the break-in procedure. Clinical pictures will taken and added to your file.
On your third visit, you will return with your brace to review your progress and adjust the brace for optimal alignment. We will then refer you to get an in-brace x-ray. The in-brace x-rays will allow us to see how much correction the Cheneau Gensingen brace is providing. Once you receive the in-brace x-rays, you will email them to SoCal Scoliosis Care. We will review the x-rays and contact you to discuss the outcome.
Follow Up Appointments
It's essential to regularly review the status of your scoliosis until your skeletal maturity, and the risk of progression have diminished. Therefore, follow-up visits are recommended every three months. During these visits, we will assess your progress and assess your posture and alignment. In addition, we will replace all straps and pads and determine if any changes are needed to your brace.
