Jun Yu, Emilse Hidalgo Arriaga, Juan Jesus Villa and Jun Wang*

Background: The purpose of this study is to present the X-axis posture improvements in the spine in a young male with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis with occasional complaints of low back pain who was treated with posture correction.

Case presentation: A 15-year-old male presented to the clinic with occasional low back pain. They brought full spine radiographs, (AP and lateral view). Radiographs revealed a cervical kyphosis, forward head, left head tilt, straightening of thoracic kyphosis and lumbar lordosis, and a Cobb angle of 29º with left convexity in the lumbar spine. The patient was treated with ASPINE Systems®; integrating spinal manipulation, corrective exercises and spinal multidimensional traction.

Results: Re-evaluation after 60 sessions during 20 weeks showed improvements in radiographical assessments. The head tilt angle disappeared, deviation of the lower rib cage was aligned to the body’s midline and there was a reduction of the Cobb angle by 17º degrees.

Conclusion: A sizable study using more cases utilizing these protocols and procudures should be conducted to create greater medical awareness of more scoliosis treatment options.
