Experts debate role of Cobb angle in scoliosis bracing, 1 May 2006 [cached]
However, it is critical that the practitioner reestablish the most angulated inferior and superior vertebrae each time a new Cobb angle is measured rather than simply using the same vertebral endplates as were used in the initial Cobb measurement, said Thomas H. Colburn, CO, director of orthotics and prosthetics at Tufts New England Medical Center in Boston, who was one of five speakers at the AAOP symposium.
"By using the same endpoints as the initial measure, you might end up with a smaller Cobb angle," said Colburn, who is also director of education for Boston Brace International.
"Cobb angle is a two-dimensional descriptor of a three-dimensional curve," Colburn said.
"We need to strive to reduce Cobb angle as much as possible, but we do need to make sure we have a well-balanced spine inside the brace," Colburn said.
