“Emiline, an avid tennis player who is USTA Junior ranked, was 14 when she came to see us for worsening scoliosis. She was braced at the age of 13 and received chiropractic physical therapy which unfortunately did not prevent her curve from progressing. We performed a VBT procedure also known as tethering or flexible fusion and were able to correct her curvature by 100%. She began footwork drills at 4 weeks and rallying at 5 weeks after surgery.”

– Dr. Baron Lonner, MD
