Best Practice treatment of Scoliosis

Dr Weiss has had numerous articles and papers published in peer reviewed clinical journals over the past thirty years. We are just referencing three:

Hard Tissue 2013 Nov 25;2{5}:43. Bracing scoliosis: the evolution to CAD/CAM for improved in-brace corrections: Weiss HR,Seibel S,Moromarco M,Kleban A.
                            
This study of 21 patients proves that asymmetric braces allow better in-brace correction than symmetric braces and that in turn results in optimal improvements to curvatures
even in curves exceeding 45 degrees.

Hard Tissue 2013 Feb 26;2{2}:14. Remodelling of trunk and backshape deformities in patients with scoliosis using standardised asymmetric computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing braces:
Weiss HR, Monomarco M

This paper compares the case studies of three patients with curvatures exceeding 45 degrees with a plethora of literature on the subject which had shown limited evidence of improvements via bracing .The case studies indicate that trunk and backshape can be improved by bracing, even in patients with curvatures exceeding 45 degrees. For the majority of scoliosis patients with curvatures exceeding 45 degrees, surgery should not be indicated, considering that a large percentage of long-term effects are detrimental, as shown in the literature.
